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.

Golden straw color, nice appearence. Nice hoppy aroma. One of the better IPA’s out on the market. With out a doubt would recommend.

12 oz. bottle. Piney and citrusy taste but very smooth and didn’t seem as bitter as some other IPA’s I’ve had. A beer that is very enjoyable to drink and I could drink all day.

Pours a hazy pale copper shade. Drank from a tulip, and had almost no head. Nose was hoppy citrus and pine. Flavor is smooth, and would probably be considered a IIPA from some other brewers. A really good beer with a clean finish.

I wish I could get this beer in Illinois since I have to drive to Munster, Indiana to get it. Solid IPA. Smells and tastes great. A very smooth IPA that isn’t too bitter.

From a bottle poured a nice amber color with a good amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a good lingering aftertaste.

Poured into standard shaker glass. Very piny and fragrant citrusy aroma full of lemon zest notes and Colorado winter skiing. That was the highlight for me though. Taste is smooth but not enough malt balance a la Dogfish 60/90 Minute IPA. Refreshing but a bit standoffish with the finish. Mouth feels cottony and too dry after sips. If you enjoy the bitter hop finish then reach for this. It was fun to enjoy a bottle but I won’t make extra effort to purchase this.

Pours orange/gold with a small off white head. Aroma is huge citrus and pine. The flavor is equally big, huge hop flavor, with a nice balance between sweet and bitter. A buttery resin finish that stays with you. Very nice IPA.

22 oz. bottle. The smell of fresh cannabis bud took me back to the days of yore with hydros and grow lights. Poured with no head. The taste was grapefruit bittersweet with enough of a malt presence to keep the hops from overwhelming. The full body of this brew carries the flavors nicely. Probably the best of Stones widely availible beers.Jan 2002

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 The pine taste is a lot more evident than the citrus taste but that is why I bought it I guess. Always refreshing, I’ll welcome it whenever I can get it.
