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.

This is a very solid, hoppy IPA. Generous hops on the aroma and in the flavor. Notes of pine and citrus in the aroma. The flavor and finish are also quite bitter and floral and not too sweet, with at most medium carbonation. I like the Ruination IPA more, but this is a good IPA.

4 month old can > wine glass, 1 week until Enjoy By. A: Cloudy light orange gold pour with 1/4" of beige foam that quickly fell to a film, leaving tracks of lace. S: Light scent of mainly pine, tangerine and toffee. A little alcohol and wood. T: Bitter grapefruit pith and orange pulp with caramel and wood malt notes. M: Medium body with crisp carbonation and wet resinous finish. O: Pretty good all around IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 Lekko zmetnione, trwała piana. Aromat słaby, trochę żywicy i owoców, zboże. W smaku fajniej, dość sporo owoców i iglaków, półwytrawne. Goryczka średnio niska jak na IPA, dość krótka, owocowo pestkowa. Nie czuć tego 7% alko. Trochę przereklamowane

12 oz bottle at Il Birrificio Camberwell Vic. Pours hazy apricot with small white head. Aroma is big, tropical fruits with a little citrus. Flavour is dominated by bitter hop hit. The solid malt backbone provides plenty of support for the hops. Taste is strongly bitter with reasonable sweetness underneath. Palate is thick with a slightly creamy or oily mouthfeel. Lasting residual bitterness on the front and mid palate. Overall a very good big IPA. Not easy to find in Australia but worth the hunt.

Orange brass in color, medium carbonation. Too much pine and lingering bitterness for me, the bitter aftertaste will stay with you a while. Decent carbonation and retention with the lacing. Not enough smoothness and fruitiness, straight pine and bitter. While I will call it a very good IPA it's just not one I come back to very often. I did today and so the review. Still very good if you're a fan.

Sweet aroma of herbs & clementine. Clear golden with long lasting low white head. Light sweet & medium bitter taste. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation & a bitter finish.

De Stone Brewing Co.(E. U. A.)esta iconica IPA sandieguina, bautizada simplemente como “Stone IPA” tiene 6.9% ABV y 71 IBU's, contiene una variedad de lúpulos tales como Magnum, Chinook, Centenial, Azacca, Calypso, Motueka, Ella y Vic Secret, una de las primeras IPA's con ese punch de amargor que desataron la fiebre por los lúpulos, este año está popular receta cumple 20 años en el mercado, probemos esta IPA de la vieja escuela para juzgar como a evolucionado el estilo y como a envejecido la misma receta. En apariencia mantiene una corona de espuma delgada con mediana retención formada por perlas medianas, actividad de carbonatación mediana, color dorado claro de aspecto filtrado, cuerpo ligero al ondearlo en el vaso. En nariz presenta una intensidad bastante clara y enfocada a los cítricos, principalmente aromas a toronja, naranja, piña, resinosa, quizás no tan compleja pero si muy marcadas todas las nota, lo suficiente para dejar claro que por lo menos en este aspecto es una IPA cumplidora. Ya en paladar presenta un  amargor potente hasta algo desbalanceado creería yo acompañado de astringencia que si puede llegar a molestar, ligero dulzor, los sabores encontrados son a cáscara de toronja, naranja verde, piña, resinosa, satura el paladar de inmediato, presencia de cuerpo ligeramente mediano, retrogusto de permanencia basta en donde predomina la toronja, como dije algo desbalanceada permanece en el mercado como un clásico y es buen ejemplo del enfoque o balance que se buscaba en una IPA hace 20 años, hoy en día el mercado pude IPA's con amargor marcado pero una buena base de malta que las haga más balanceadas y se pueda apreciar más claramente todos los componentes en el paladar.

Luneylane (282) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JAN 21, 2018
A bottle from Jasons, near NCCU. Aroma: rather indistinct yeasty, surprisingly uncitrusy. Appearance: clear amber, 1mm. off-white head. Palate: Medium-bodied, rather thin, average carbonation,pretty astringent at the finish, but less so than the 'go to...'. Taste: heavily bitter, much less grapefruit than the 'go to...'., higher ABV unnoticable, not my cup of tea.
