This is an angry beer. This beer will ruin your life and everything else it touches. This is the best Stone I.P.A. you can hope to try.

This is the lightest I.P.A. I've ever seen. It pours a light golden color with a white, one finger head.

There may be a bit of citrus in the aroma, or at least their should be with the amount of hops present. This beer is an explosion of hops. You do not need to "smell" the beer smell them. At first crack, unless you are in an open field on a windy day, you are going to be bombarded with hops.

If you want to imagine tasting this beer, find a whole bud bud hop flower, drop it in a glass of water and drink it. This beer is pure hops. I'm sure there are malts and yeast in it as well, but the hops are overwhelmingly, and brilliantly present.

It's hard to describe the feel of this brew. It's very heavy and comfortably numbing. Your mouth will become entranced in the hops of this beer.

An amazing I.P.A. overall. This beer shows the true evolution of the I.P.A. a beer made out of necessity, at first to survive a long journey from England to India, and not a beer made out of necessity to combat Big Beer and all of it's evil doings. If you ever find yourself losing faith in beer, crack open this I.P.A. and even if you utterly hate it, you will plainly see that their is still a true craft in beer.
