COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle, can, and keg: Filtered
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.

"aroma- citrus, floral, resin. appearance is a little a clear honey color that looks crisp and clean with bubbles bursting to the top. mouthfeel- you get hit with the hops at the beginning, middle and end- yet there isn’t an overpowering bitterness- a good strong one with floral and citrus undertones. Malt is present in the middle- minor sweetness, nothing thick or sticky- just a mellow malt presence. This made the body feel a little thin but the hops make up for the malt thinness. Just as ggod at the beginning as the end. Has all the tastes of a good IPA without overpowering the senses- citrus/grapefruit, floral, pine. VERY drinkable "

Pours more golden than copper with a nice rocky head. Aroma is hoppy citrus. Has a nice malty undertone with your standard grapefruit WC hop flavor. Bitterness is pretty high for a non-imperial IPA. Overall, good. Like most of Stone’s offerings.

Golden amber pour with minimal head. Strong aromas of fresh pine, citrus fruits lemon, grapefruit and earthy herbs. Taste is clean; pale malt body dominated by big hop flavors; bold but balanced bitterness. Slick mouthfeel medium body, with moderate carbonation. Very good west coast IPA.

Chock full of hops. Strong hop/floral aroma. I have never been a fan of I.P.A.’s Too bitter for my taste. Personally, this stuff made me choke. It looks really inviting., but it tastes bad. A good friend of mine who is an I.P.A. drinker thinks this stuff is great. So, there you go. Don’t listen to me.

Berlin version, just a pale replica of the original. Very bitter, not as "tasteful" as the other beers from Stone in the U.S.A.

A bit of sweetness and not overpowering despite the hoppiness. Tasted on tap at Brooklyn Waterfront Beer Festival, 6/16/2012.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 12 oz bottle. Pours hazy dark orange, small head, with a bit of lacing. Aroma of citrus, fresh fruit, hops, grass. Taste is also citrusy and intensely hoppy. Aroma and flavor both very fresh. Finish is bitter (almost a bit too bitter for me), but expected for a beer with 70+ IBUs. This is the beer that turned me on to IPAs. Love it.

22oz bottled poured a rich copper color w/ a mountainous off-white head. Aggressive hop aroma with a slight nuttiness. The flavor was wonderful! Nice bitter flavor with notes of citrus and pine. Very crisp and refreshing aftertaste. Hoppier than your average IPA, highly recommended.

On tap. Started out with aromas of hops and some background citrus and fruit. The finish was different, it left my mouth feeling dry. Overall I enjoyed it.
