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.

Dogbrick (11851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. I didnt 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!

hopdog (11774) - 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).

crossovert (11601) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2011
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 isnt 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

madsberg (11497) - Sborg, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 Bottled: Orange golden coloured. Has a medium lasting head. Aroma has notes of earth and flowers. Flvaour is hops, hops, hops, hops and ..... Boy oh boy. My palate was carpetbombed with hops. Quite pleasant, really, with this massive bitterness in the palate. If this is gonna be the standard of the 6 californian beers i've traded from herbjones, i'm gonna be a lucky man!

Rune (11488) - Troms, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle at Henrik l 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).

Sammy (11375) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2004
This is a new IPA, sporting a gargoyle emblem. A transparent bottle that really shows big bubbles in there. A bit dry aftertaste a surprise but otherwise a nice drink. Can be session starter or go with food. Hops and citrus. However bitterness.
