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.

Bitter to the max... no, really! :D Medium head with lacing. Amber orange. Palate little dissapointing, but still decent. Aromas of pine, citrus, fruity... Nice "on the glass" printed bottle.

Tolle Perligkeit, frisch aus der grünen Dose. Ordentlicher Schaum, da bricht nix weg. In der Nase cremig feine Mango. Ebenso im Trunk, mittig kommt etwas der Alkohol, dann holzig, bitter, süffig. Geiles Ding.

Dobra IPA w stylu West coast. Niezła piana drobnopecherzykowa. W smaku dużo chmielu, żywicy. Klasyk stylu.

Has a light aroma of citrus, floral and fresh brewed tea. Very hop forward blend, hard to pick out individual flavors on this one but its a nice balance and mix of citrus, pine and dark fruit, none stand out more than the other. Finishes off with a long dry, bitter finish that lingers for quite a while. Very tasty and one I've been wanting to try for a while now, glad I did.

Erzengel (9087) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2017
33cl can brewed in Berlin. Great fresh fruity nose. Lots of floral hops. The beer starts fresh and fruity. Intense and mild in one. Sticky with herbal parts, great depth with lots of hops. Long fruity bitter herbal aftertaste. Great.

macior (15) - POLAND - SEP 12, 2017
Puszka do 27.01.2018 Aromat: żywiczny, w tle trochę cytrusów. Trochę jak leśna kostka toaletowa. Nic specjalnego. Wygląd: obfita, średniopęchrzykowa piana, dość szybko znika. Barwa złocista. Klarowne. Smak: Jak w aromacie - głównie żywica, trochę cytrusów. Goryczka średnia do średnio wysokiej, lekko skontrowana słodyczą. Trochę zalegająca. Ogólnie: Poprawne, ale nic specjalnego.

Grumbo (3486) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2017
Tap at Mel's Craft Beer & Diner, Vienna. Pours clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, malt, hop and caramel. Moderate sweetness, medium plus bitterness.. Medium body, slight oily texture, average to soft carbonation

12floz bottle, stamped BOD: 07.17.2017 and BBD: 10.30.2017, $1.75 unit cost, tulip glass. Appears a glowing golden yellow color with foam, blah, blah, blah...Smells like cut up citrus fruit sprinkled with garden herbs. The palate is hop centric, thin on the malts. Plant stems and green leaf flavors linger on the palate. At one time, I thought this beer was well composed. Now it it just seems like a run of the mill moderately bitter AIPA and nothing else. This is to say it is okay, but I used to remember a touch more juicy sweetness as a counterbalance. As is in this review, it lacks a malt backbone. Not that great, I suspect the high rating here is based largely on legacy and before the flood of one-dimensional IPAs. Unfortunately, Stone Pale Ale has somehow become scarce in my area,. I'd like seek it out to see it if has held up to past memory (for better or worse). Stone brewery has really lost it's luster in the last ten years. They are no longer a highly regarded beer maker in my book. Just one of the crowd.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2017 About as good and reliable as beer gets. West Coast style, fruity and piney. Love it.

0.33L can. Cloudy amber color with huge white hat, stays few minutes. Egg white, rotten orange nose. Disturbing alcohol taste is coming first, single hop, and strong grapfruit seed taste. Pleasant, messi, strong bitter finish. Grapfruit mouthfeel stays some time.

3.7
Grima (2499) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2017
330ml can from Kaufland Merzig, Saarland, Germany!
Pours clear golden with a high white head. Aroma has lots of hops, grapefruit, orange peel and pine. Taste has tons of grapefruit, orange, exotic fruits, pine and spruce. Finish is dry bitter, fruity, again massive grapefruity!
