COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle 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.

Kurtos (187) - Sydney, - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle. pours a light golden colour. Aroma. Mainly a citrus aromas. Taste. Very bitter throughout, with a nice combination of citrus and pine flavours, backed by a very slight maltiness. thanks to my dad for bringing this back to me from the states, very expensive and hard to find here. Overall. Everything about this beer is brilliant, dominated by a strong bitterness, complimented well with a nice citrus backing, and a maltiness that doesnt really add much flavour to the beer but acts to tame the bitterness and the overall flavour profile in general.

Faint aroma of tropical fruit (pineapple). Taste is faint citrus, pine and grapefruit with subtle caramel undertones and some grass. It is a lovely beer.

MikeBeermaster (490) - that guy from the internet, POLAND - DEC 9, 2016
[Can from Stone Berlin] A lot of citrus in the aroma with hints of mango and pineapple freshness. Earthy, malty punch in the background. Cloudy orange in the glass, frothy snow-white head. Taste is dominated by fruity dryness with some earthiness and malty core. Harsh hopiness is also noticeable. Full body and fizzy carbonation. Too aggressive in my book.

Grumpelmies (71) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2016
Can from Stone Berlin. Slightly cloudy orange/gold. Huge foamy head. Nice lacing. Aroma is pine, orange, lemons and grapefruit. Beautiful. Taste is oranges, grapefruit and some malts in the background. Grassy, herbal and a little bit spicy. Good balance between malts and hops (although this is of course a very hop-driven beer by design). Highly carbonated. Dry and very bitter finish. A lovely and delicious IPA.

Can 330 ml. Clear golden with medium head. Aroma of citrus and resin. Totally dry, medium and quite short bitterness, carbonation bit too high for me.

tfredvik (1798) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2016
Clear, pale amber body with large, creamy, eggnog head that reduces to an everlasting layer, excellent lacing. Sweet, surprisingly malty and strong aroma of caramel and a bit too overripe tropical fruits. Strong flavour of caramel, slightly overripe tropical fruits, grapefruit and bitter orange marmalade, with a floral and spicy background. Light sweet initial taste followed by a rather heavy bitter and long-lasting finish. Mid-bodied, dry, soft carbonation. A very nice one, but didnt feel as fresh as I had expected.
[35.5 cl can, enjoyed 5 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge, Oslo]

Hanoi (873) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2016
Can. Berlin. Nose is citrus, malt, slight dankness, lime, grapefruit. Taste follows, good malt body with grapefruit, dank, lime rind, tangerine, lemon, with a dry lemon grass finish. Looks beautiful in the glass with a pillowy head. A classic deeply drinkable modern IPA.

Dzoshu (151) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Kolor: Złoty, klarowne. Piana: Średnio obfita, oblepia szkło, redukuje się do warstewki na powierzchni. Zapach: Owoce tropikalne, żywica, kwiaty, mokre zboże. Pachnie przyjemnie, wyraźnie ale zapach trochę mdławy, mało agresywny. Smak: Słodkie, rześkie. Mango, brzoskwinie, zboże. Goryczka pojawia się po dłuższej chwili ale z dużą intęsywnością, mimo to jest krtka i przyjemna. Wysycenie: Średnie w stronę wysokiego, OK. Opakowanie: Zgrabna, stylowa puszka, niedokładny skład. Uwagi: Warka 16.04.17 Mocno chmielowe, klasyczne, przyjemne. Dobry przykład stylu.

33cl can (by Stone Brewing Berlin). Hazy golden orange with big white head. Citrus, caramel and grapefruit in the aroma. Taste is lightly bitter with fruity notes. Overall, a bit of a deception. Nice but not remarkable.
