Stone's I.P.A. has all the quintessential aspects of an I.P.A., and has a light enough body to appeal to a broad audience. That's not to say that it's not complex. First impression is of peaches, with a follow up of pine. There is a healthy, bitter bite as it finishes. When I poured it, there were massive amounts of head, which subsided eventually. This gave off a sweet aroma. A very refreshing beer.
Overall, this will probably become one of my first choices for parties/BBQs. This is a rather bold I.P.A. with a lot of hops. Still, I think it's well-balanced enough to appeal to anyone who likes the style. Unless hops scare you, you'll probably enjoy this beer.
