COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Cloudy yellow-gold color with a med head - fades quickly. Heavy lacing. Excellent complex hop nose: grapefruit, lemon rind, pine and grass (new mown hay). Tingly grassy lemony flavor with med malt balance. Malt is clean and straightforward (not even any caramelly notes). Very nice beer, if more than a bit one-dimensional. Followed by some seriously long hoppy belches.

A truly great IPA. Strong notes of citrus in the malt and a moderate orange/tangerine flavor in the finish. Very hoppy finish as well but remarkably smooth. Impressive.

One of the best IPAs around. Huge hop aroma and flavor. There's a brief hint of maltiness up front (and you have to watch for it) and then the hops hit with a 1-2 punch to the palate. A top IPA in my book.

Fantastic beer. Leaves a wonderful dry aftertaste. Pretty expensive for an IPA, but worth it.

I can honestly say this is one of the best beers on the planet. The aroma is pure earthiness. The taste is pure nirvana. If I had to choose one beer to drink for the rest of my life, I would chose Stone IPA!

I was amazed at the maltiness of this IPA. The aroma was incredible and the hoppiness show up in a big way to balance the maltiness. Very good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 This should be the mark that all ipa’s are judged by. This beer’s got more hopps than a freakin rabbit. Good stuff.

possibly the best IPA on the market. Great hoppy aroma and crisp hop flavor. A tad sweet but I'll over look that. Great beer Stone!

I usually dont buy too many IPAs or American brews...but this is probably the best IPA I have had. Very good.
