Stone is always a pretty safe bet, so I was extremely excited to try their classic India Pale Ale.
Pours a golden citrus color. Smells of hop and bitters, a little citrus in there as well.
Taste is a wonderfully balanced pairing of hops and bitters. Although Stone claims its filled with hops, I didn't find it to be overly hoppy like so many other IPA attempts.
Goes down very smooth and it's a very easy drinking beer as far as IPA's go. Highly recommended.
Serving type: on-tap

This is my favorite IPA and a goto beer for me.
Pour - excellent voluminous, frothy pour; leaving a gorgeous three finger, frothy, sea foam head.
Appearance - Very nice, clear amber. Lacing is outstanding.
Nose - The nose is not powerful, but does bring up a nice light grapefruit/pine/resin scent.
Taste - Yummy. Not thick and or over the top; but rather a perfect balance. Ruby Red grapefruit juice, pine resin, yummy sweet malt.
Finish - perfect. Bitter, long lasting, citrus sour.
This is truly a world class beer.
