Launched: August 1997
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

This brew is strong yet refreshing, crisp and hoppy. The hops triggered a response from my parietal glands. As my salivary glands started to spam, my ears and sinuses reacted in kind. This brew is phenomenal. It is not for those that proclaim patronage to the non-bitter beer institute. As the good book says, don’t cast pearls before swine. This beer is for the conesuer, for one who appreciates perfection. California ales are definitely leading the way for these hop righteous brews. Stone and a few others are defining the new era in IPA brewskies!

Orange in color. Bitter bitter bitter. Very complex, sweet, sour, fruty. An amazing aroma. My second brew from Stone.

This hazy, orangey golden brew has a medium, white head. The nose is full with herbal hoppiness and the slightest nuance of maltiness. The palate brings out the malty character with roasted grains and nuttiness. The finish resumes the hoppy character with some herbal/lemony bitterness.

Had this one from a special cask that used centennial hops. Stone was doing some sort of promotion at Iron Abbey. Poured a golden amber with a thick white head. Aroma was very floral and hoppy. Taste was a heap of hops right up front, but then some faint fruity notes and a bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable, very balanced, especially for something this hoppy. Like I said, this was a special cask, so it’s a little different from the standard brew.

One awesome IPA, this is what beer drinking is all about. Copper colored with a hoppy, hoppy nose and flavor, just damn good!

Excellent IPA. Golden hued pour with off-white foam head. Great citrus/pine hop and floral hop aroma. First taste and you know what you’re in for. Dominated by bittersweet hoppiness and a long, surprisingly smooth, hoppy finish. Notes of spices and fruits detail the body. Better than Dogfish 60. Its only problem is the price tag for a 6-pack.

My go-to IPA. Fresh with the citrus notes, lite on the piney aspect,and smooth hops blend well with this beer. Sexy lacing. The only thing would do is bring more hops out in the aroma without messing with the taste. I love smelling the hops while taking a great swig!

Minimial aroma, light color, overall very smooth for a good ipa. Great tasting hoppiness without an overwheling bitterness
