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.

Appealing amber color with a nice hoppy aroma. Nice and smooth going down. Great beer with after taste of hops around my mouth. I get a nice warm feeling as I finish this beer.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Bottle. Typical IPA color with a nice, foamy head and good lacing. Very flowery aroma for an IPA. Flavor is fruity and bitter and perfectly balanced. This IPA is well deserving of its lofty status. Maybe my favorite beer. Re-rate - This is my favorite beer on the face of this earth, so I have to give it a 5.

This is now my standard drinking IPA--it doesnt flag in crispness and potency, and has a proven record of satisfaction over time. If you want a reliable IPA that wont lose its appeal over time, heres a place to stop. Ruiniation is also excellent.

Bottle. Golden amber color with an oily but small head. Nice aroma of heavy citrus hops and very faint malt. Bold bitterness, and a very very light sweetness. An excellent IPA specimen.

Such a delicious beer. Amazing aroma, full of piney, citrusy hop goodness. The flavor is full power - acidic at first, then a hop-splosion with a caramel-sweet finish. Like making out with a gorgeous chick who’s chewing hop-flavored gum. Nice long, smooth finish. Right up there with Two Hearted, maybe slightly less balanced.

Had this on draft back on 11Jul2007. It was the cask version specially hopped with Simcoe Hops. Nice golder/copper color. Nice hoppy smell. This beer had great hop flavor but an almost surreal hop sweetness (unlike any other beer) and smoothness. I could drink this version all day long. Bottle the Simcoe version please. Ive had the regular bottle version of stone IPA and it is good... but this is awesome.

Good beer, although I am not a big hophead. The hop and malt aroma was great. The beer is crisp with lots of bitterness which lasts way after finishing the beer.

Very nice golden tan pour, with a nice white, quickly fading head. Aroma is of citrus, lemon and grapefruit. Some pine as well. Tast was mor citrus, and pine then anything. Just a small touch of malt maybe? A little to bitter and spicey bitterness for me. Wnjoyable but not one I will really seek out again.
