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.

Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. I didn’t think this stacked up to Ruination but it is still a contender. Dry, biting hops keep it interesting but it is still easy to drink. Keep ’em coming Stone!

12 oz bottle, enjoy by 05.03.10, I wish they had the bottled on date since it is an IPA. Pours into my american pint glass with a nice gold color and a foamy and rocky white head that takes a bit to recede leaving gobs of lacing. It has a decent smell though not overly intense. It is very citrusy and zesty with also some herbal grassiness. There isn’t much malt to the scent of this beer. It is smooth and hoppy with a good amount of biscuity malt backing and a nice bitter finish. Luscious but insanely drinkable. This is the quintessential quaffing IPA. The mouthfeel is nice and medium bodied. This stuff is so easy to put back, it is like drinking water, far higher drinkability than a light beer especially when it is nice and warmed up. Overall a great pick for American IPA if you want a superb quaffing beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-26-2010 02:27:58

Bottle at Henrik Øl og Vinstove in Bergen, shared with Elisabeth. Unclear golden. A few patches on the surface. Sweet and bitter aroma of citric hops. Well blended flavour of grapefruit, lemon and orange shells. Malty sweetness beneath. Decent dry bitter ending. A real pleaser to the palate (18.06.2009).

hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Poured a deep amber/orange with a large frothy white head. Strong floral hoppy smell with hints of citris and malts. Smooth to drink. Bitterness after taste is almost done to perfection (not too much and not too less).

Bottle. [thank you, after4ever]
Hazy darkish golden with a staying, frothy, off-white head. Good lacing. Nice hoppy aroma. There is pine, grapefruit, caramel, malts, grass. Great frothy mouthfeel, wonderful dryness, medium to high carbonation. Elegant hoppy flavour. There is a great deal of pine, sweet maltiness behind it. Some grapefruit and grassy notes. Long, lingering, dry, ashy, hoppy aftertaste.

j12601 (12622) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow amber color. A little lighter in color than I generally like in my IPAs. Medium large white foam head. Piles of citrus hops on the nose backed up with a sweet malt. Soft pine background. Medium body but almost empty in the middle. Finishes lighter than the aroma would suggest with a lingering grapefruit bitterness.
