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.

LesArgen (330) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2013
Very hoppy, and yet very smooth. The nose is dominated by grapefruit, honey, rockmelon and pine. Theres also a nice dusty finish. The mouthfeel is incredibly hoppy and yet not overbearing. A nice achievement.

Had several bottles of this at a science function in California this week. Big hops in the nose and the taste. Dry, crisp, refreshing bitterness.

BLADT (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 18, 2014
UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 From bottle. Nice, hazy gold in glass. Super fresh. Dank hemp perfume with mango and citrus spritz. Inviting. Like sticking your face into a bag of hop pellets. Taste has plenty of tropical fruits, tons of green hops and a orange grass follow up. Wonderful. Fresh throughout.

eRock_2013 (422) - South Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2014
A standard-setting IPA, heavy on the pacific hops with a strong but enjoyable bitterness. The appearance was surprisingly golden clear and luminescent, included a solid white head. Smell and taste were both of a strong flavorful intensity. Very satisfying and fresh hoppy flavor, hoppiness seems intentionally out of balance with malty or sweet flavors. Some floral hop accents. Finishes clean and appetizing for another round. Worthy of its reputation, although not my personal favorite IPA.

Stone IPA is no doubt a classic craft. Just slight fresh hop aroma coming from this amber pour with a nice head. Taste is big malt character followed by the hops -- mostly pine notes -- and a bitterness that complements the flavor. Not much complexity, just a solid hop character. Finish is nice without a lot of lingering bitterness. Stone IPA definitely blazed a trail, but now have lots of competition. Still it is a nice quaff with dinner.
