4.3/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Light creamy 1 finger head fades slowly with lacing over hazy amber wheat orange colo.

Nose of fresh hops, some light pine and citrus, floral hops. Light malt backbone.

Taste has more light hops with some bitterness. Some light astringency, pine, citrus, light grapefruit, tangerine, juicy fruits, light sticky hop oils pungent. Light sweet malts too. Finish is long and bitter and semi dry.

Mouth is medium with a crisp demeanor and decent carbonation.

Drinkability is good, pretty drinkable for sweetness with dry finish, no real booze, but a slight sticky finish.

Served in a Devil's Backbone willibecher.

We'll see how long it takes me to die during the Leaving Falls Church uber-bender. My guess is not much longer. This co-defendant pours a clear golden straw topped by a finger of white foam, complete with a decent amount of etch-style lacing. The nose comprises plenty o' pine, grapefruit, honeydew, and rich toffee. The taste dilutes the pine up front in a wash of grapefruit, followed by a nice smattering of toffee, but then, in the finish, the pine returns for some always-enjoyed vengeance. The body is fairly light, with a moderate carbonation and a pretty dry and crisp finish. Overall, a very nice, easy-drinkin' IPA. Get some!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The body is a hazy deep peach in color, topped by a frothy white head that holds well and leaves some excellent "sticky" lace. The aroma is of a fruity, sweet (almost sugary) malt, and bold floral & citrus hops (that combine with the sweetness to offer alot of pineapple - but also some lemon). The body is medium/full with a very fine, moderate carbonation that gives a light zest on the tongue and then becomes quite creamy in the mouth. The flavor offers a blend of rich, sweet, fruity, and lightly caramel & bready malt, and loads of citrusy, floral, piney & grassy hops backed by a solid bitterness. It finishes with a lingering combination of sweet floral malt flavor and dry bitterness. Although the bitterness is hefty, it's not overwhelming, and the sweet malt remains evident throughout the glass. The alcohol is beautifully cloaked, revealing only a light touch of "spiciness" in the flavor. This is a really unique and exceptional beer that's well worth seeking out. Well brewed. Outstanding.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Served on draught into a generic beer glass at The Lab in Los Angeles (by USC). Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a two finger head of nice soft cream, fair thickness, and decent retention. Colour is a hazy light gold.

Sm: Light floral and banana notes, some bubblegum, and orange peel. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Admixtures of the notes on the nose form a bad balance. Structurally, it's problematic, with no satisfying climax. Poorly built and balanced.

Mf: Sharp, coarse, and wet. Terrible. Doesn't suit the body at all. A classic example of the problem with IPAs.

Dr: I was disappointed having heard such great things about Stone Brewing. I paid 5 USD in LA, which isn't terrible, but I won't be having this one again.


12/05/13: It's been over 2 years since I sat down with this beer, and I figured I'd add some truncated notes since my palate's probably developed.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle served into a conical Guinness pint glass in low altitude Castle Rock, CO. Reviewed live. Enjoy by: 12/24/13.

Served cold. Side-poured.

A: No bubble show.

Pours a 3 finger wide head of white colour. Fluffy. Okay creaminess. Decent thickness. No lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Retention is above average - about 4 minutes.

Body colour is a clear textbook copper of above avg vibrance. No yeast particles are visible. Translucent.

Standard fare for an IPA overall. Not unique or special.

Sm: Plenty of generic floral hop character. Pale malts. A hint of grapefruit. Pine. Some mango. Maybe even passionfruit. Fairly grassy. Plenty of hop bitterness is detectable, and the malts seem inadequate to balance it. I'm really concerned about the balance. There's maybe a brief hint of crackery malts.

A clean aroma - no yeast character or alcohol presence is noticeable.

T: Hop character: primarily floral, with some lighter notes of pine, mango fruit, grapefruit, and some tropical fruit. The pine is nice I guess. As it warms, I pick up a stale orange juice note - one of the off-notes that indicates a subpar IPA.

Pale malts. Maybe some caramalt.

The hop bitterness overwhelms what little malty sweetness there is, resulting in an annoying imbalance. I do like some of the fruity notes here. It has a loose cohesion, but feels a bit thrown together. Too bitter on the finish. Not gestalt, unique, special, nuanced, intricate, complex, or subtle. Average depth and duration of flavour. Above average intensity of flavour.

Mf: Smooth, wet, rough, unrefreshing, and overcarbonated. Suits the flavour profile okay. Doesn't seem at all custom-tailored to the taste.

Dr: Downable but problematic. Stone, as usual, displays little awareness of balance with this beer. I won't be buying it again, nor would I recommend it to friends. I remain shocked by this beer's high ratings. It's by no means world-class, or even above average. I stand by my initial rating.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A: The beer is a light and mildly hazy amber color with a thick white head, which doesn’t fade too quickly and a thick lace.

S: Nice hops smell, but not too strong, with a little bit of citrus.

T: Good hops bite to start out, then gives way to an orange/grapefruit sweetness. Then the hops come back to stay in the after-taste with a slight hint of the alcohol. Although the flavors are distinct, no single one overpowers you. An excellently balanced taste.

M: Very crisp and very smooth (Stone Brewing Co. tends to put both of those qualities into their beer very well.) with a medium body and light carbonation.

D: This beer has all of the qualities that it needs to make it drinkable. It’s very tasty, smooth, not-filling, well-balanced and goes down VERY easy.

This is the 4th beer that I’ve had from Stone Brewing Co. and each beer that I try expands the respect that I have for them. This beer is an excellent representation of the style and while maintaining the Stone signature.

I had this IPA on tap at the Batdorf Restaurant in Annville, PA.
Served chilled in a standard pint.

A - a mango nectar hued ale w/ 1 1/2 fingers of smooth snowy suds cap the beer. Mild haze w/ moderate lace on the glass the IPA has a fine bead

S - The scent of apricot + lychee w/ a floral note and grapefruit accent. The nose has a light herbal odor w/ a lot of citrus carrying the smell into west coast hop realm that is familiar and fragrant

M - A sharp hop bitterness is abrasive at first, but in a good way. Well seasoned w/ a spicy, highly bitter, focused feel but hey it's an IPA

T - A sweet tea like malt followed by a grapefruit rind w/ mellow tropical elements and grassy hop acidity that is lasting. The balance is not a word this Ipa ever heard of. The taste of dry apricot w/ a dry herbal/spiced taste that is crisp and allows for a lasting bitterness in the taste. The alcohol flavor comes forward as the glass nears 1/2 full, but still in check w/ a gently creamy malt layered under a dense array of hop flavors

D - A great West coast IPA one of the best w/ a dry and highly drinkable quality. The taste is still not intense for the sake of intensity -this is a classic example of an American IPA w/ a more bitter hop focus. I enjoyed this IPA it is easy to take large gulps of this, it is refreshing.

Presentation: 22 oz brown bomber with a silk screen painted label of the "Stone Brewing Gargoyle" which wards off impurities that would otherwise taint the sanctity of the brew.

Appearance: Rich golden hued brew that has a very frothy white lace which sticks all over the glass.

Smell: Very aromatic ... raw hop and hints of fruity ester. Nice dry-hopping!

Taste: Intense hop character, both flavour and bitterness. A bit smooth and a bit crisp with some malt flavour ... a little biscuit and grain, some malt sweetness and fruity ester. Though the hops are very dominant and push their sweet and bitter oils onto the palate. Amazingly the after taste cleans up a little leaving some grain and hop leaf flavour in the finish. Gulp after gulp this brew seems to warm the body more and more.

Notes: Wow now this is an IPA! Well attenuated and very bitter, yet still a little malt character to balance. Seriously ... if you don't like hoppy beers than this one might not be a good pick. If you are a hophead ... than buy a case! There was only one thing this beer said to me "Don't be a whimp, drink a hoppy beer!" Also this a quite deceiving brew topping out at 6.9% abv.

First had: on tap at ?

Poured a hazy peach-orange with a finger of foamy white head that retained decently and left a bit of lace on the glass. Mainly citrus hops in the aroma; piney. A base of sweet maltiness in the taste is overshadowed by piney hops; notes of grapefruit and orange. Hops are in command, but there is still a pretty decent balance happening. Medium-bodied and easily drinkable for the style.

Had this on tap at Mt. Dragon in snowmass, co last weekend. Very nice

Poured amber to bronze in color with a tight/white 1 finger deep head that stuck around most of the pint, bubbles cling to the side of the glass and dance of the head with every pour. Good lacing

Smell: Fruitiness/biscuitty smells and piney hop odors

Taste: Fruitinesss and citrus and pine hops war for your attention, but in dignified manner. Not as in you face as most stone ales I've had & I appreciated the subtle yet powerful tastes showcased. Dry sweet/piney finish with hints of alcohol as it warms

MF: Extemely well balanced with good carbonation. Smooth and moreish

Extremely quaffable, drinks about 2abv lower than listed. Will get some bottles soon to compare, don't remember it being as tasty. I usually like draft better most of the time

22 oz. bomber

Pours a cloudy gold with a one finger head. Smell is highly sweet with a touch of lemon. Flavor seems somewhat light but thick with personality at the same time. Starts off slightly in citrus and delivers a high level of bitter into your mouth. Gets smoother as time goes on. Smooth, but a bit strong on the mouthfeel. Highly drinkable.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, best by 2/28/2012. Pours slightly cloudy golden straw color with a nice 2 finger off white head with fantastic retention that reduces to a thick cap that lingers. Some nice lacing down the sides of the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, pine, herbal, floral, honey, and a bit of biscuit. Nice and well balanced aromas with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, pine, herbal spiciness, floral, caramel, honey, and biscuit. Good amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pine, herbal, floral, and honey notes on the finish for a while. Very hoppy, but still has a nice malt balance to even things out. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy and very crisp mouthfeel. Very drinkable, with hardly any alcohol warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely incredible IPA. Very hoppy, yet still has great balance; and is very drinkable at 6.9%.

Magnifcant, how do they do it? Stone just knows how to make amazing beers that's all they make. I have never tasted one of their brews that I wasn't satisfied with. Pours a lucious copper tone with a screen of haze over it. My two finger head on the is a great complement of white clouds, and the retention is good here with lace already lining my glass I am ready to hop in. The hops are diffusing through the air coming for me like a trained asassin. Huge hop aroma with earthy tones I love it, some citrus and floral scents also intrigue my senses. First sip I love it, I am going to say right now this is my favorite all around IPA!!!! Yes, it's that good with the hops consuming most of my palate, the malt sweetness comes to save me from making a bitter beer face instantly forming a smile on my face. The hop resins make the mouthfeel a bit oily, but in a good way lubricating my palate to partake in one hell of a beer. Medium to light rediculously drinkable in every way imaginable. No off flavors only a hop head's dream beer is sitting in my pint glass right now.

Golden in color, slightly cloudy in clarity, this brew lent itself to an awesome two-finger, cream colored head. The aroma is excellently balanced between the flowery (not bitter) hop and the coy, slightly sweet malt. Interestingly, this beer tasted opposite of most--the hop was up front followed by malt. The beer was balanced throughout the tasting.

This is a full body ale with wonderful carbonation. This may be the best IPA I've ever enjoyed. I am drawn to getting another even though I prefer variety.

A pint on tap. Arrived with a billowing head that was exceptionally thick and creamy. It left loads of sticky lacing.

Citrus hops with traces of alcohol and malts in the nose.

The beer also has a strong citrus component on reaching the tongue, but this becomes more piney mid-taste. Sweet when it hits the tongue, with no immediate hop hit following ... this does appear in the surprisingly hoppy finish. Thus, this IPA creates a striking and unusual (well, exaggerated) flavor dynamic.

Had on tap at the Galaxy Hut in Arlington.

a - Pours a golden color with one inch of white head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus and floral hops, fruity hops and malts, also some earthy malts. Hint of pine.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, tropical fruits, and some citru/grapefruity malts.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

d - A very nice IPA. Had it many times and is a definite go to for me. Will have again.

The grim, growling gargoyle glares at you from the label, both offering protection from all things bland and dire, and also daring those not ready to indulge in a torrent of flavor to begone, and be untroubled by these blissful beers.
Appearance: a perfect, peachy hue, and a good, frothy white head.
Nose: somethin' else! A panoply of fruit, a citric cornucopia! Peaches and apricot, grapefruit, pineapple, melon, berries, and more, all in one little aroma!
Alert and lively, zesty, generous, and gorgeous!
Taste: superb! Fantastic flavor, yet none too bitter. A huge blast of hops jumps on the tongue, but not so severely. A firm body, also, excellent balance and malt backbone.
More of a piney feel comes through as we drink, but it's a minor note among so many others. Finish is medium, but tasty and satisfactory.
This is an IPA the way they are supposed to be!
If these excellent ales were available in my area, you can be sure that my fridge would be stocked well with these! Tasty, and drinkable, and rewarding!

Reviewed from notes. Bottle poured into a Hair of the Dog tulip glass.

A - Pours hazy orange with a nice frothy pillow of one and a half finger tall white head leaving light rings of lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of pungent hops; most notably citric and pine; sweet caramel malt, and some fruity esters. Good overall balance of sweet and bitter.

T - Starts off with a nice punch of pungent citric hops slowly giving way to a mix of sweet caramel malt, pine, and some fruity esters. I like how no one flavors dominates the others, it makes it very easy to drink. The finish has some light hop bitterness, lingering for a short period of time. This is one easy drinking, enjoyable, IPA.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Very smooth, crisp, feel with some lingering bitterness in the finish.

O - Pretty good. I could drink this regularly but when you compare it to some of the other offerings available locally it really comes up short. Still a good beer tho.

Reviewing an all-time great here. I'm admittedly biased, as the first time I had this was on my honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas. Picked up a single at Discount Liquor on a recent trip and poured into Stein.

A - Pours liquid gold. One finger of creamy head that dissipates quickly to a complex lace. I was hoping for a little more head, but perhaps the bottle was old.

S - A delicious combination of hops, grapefruit, mandarin orange, pine, and the tiniest bit of malt. My only knock is that it may be a bit pedantic when compared to all the other IPAs created since.

T - Sweeter than it smells - starts off like tangerine citrus candy, then fades into a slightly bitter hop aftertaste. There's also some floral notes in there a well.

M - Just thin enough to be eminently refreshing, just creamy enough to match the depth of flavor. A bit of carbonation to tickle the mouth.

D - Highly sessionable, even at 6.9%. I wish this could be my staple beer like it is in so many other parts of the country. Whither art though, Stone?

Awesome, cheap, and available (outside Illinois) - what more do you want from a brew?

Poured orangish/copper with a thin, but well-retained white head.
The smell was of citrusy hops. Very clean and inviting.
The taste was of crisp, citrusy hops on a background of creamy malt. It was medium to thick bodied. Although hoppy, it was very well-balanced for the style. The hops were smooth and tasty.
(Were it not for a touch too much salt, it would be perfect tasting.)
The feel was a bitter sharpness balanced by a creaminess that left a refreshingly bitter feel.
The alcohol is very well-hidden. Overall, it is a smooth, hoppy - but, not ridiculously so - so the balance is wonderful - A great brew and a near-perfect example of the style. Very enjoyable!

Served on tap at Idle Hands in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with light amounts of visible carbonation. A two finger tall foamy off-white head is present and there is excellent head retention with about 75% of the head remaining throughout the drinking of the beer. Significant lacing is also observed.

S: The aromas I typically associate with a west coast IPA, citrus and pine hops and a lot of it.

T: Wonderful hop flavor to this beer and a lingering bitterness in the finish. Lots of citrus and pine notes.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp.

O: Easy to drink and very refreshing on this unseasonably warm evening in early March in NYC. Definitely a session drinker and one that I enjoy - and plan on having again in the future. Great flavor and a lovely aroma.

Stone IPA is one of, well, it is my favorite beer. I can drink a Stone IPA and completely change my mood. Stone is probably the best example of an American IPA available. I've made IPAs a focus of my beer drinking and sampling and I can say without hyperbole, this is a great beer. Of course it is better on draught than in the bottle, but I had a 12 oz bottle of it served in my Stone IPA glass. Medium head, strong aroma of cascade hops, dark yellow, clear (although sometimes the bottles are cloudy). Excellent mouthfeel, a great amount of hops but the bitterness is not overpowering.

Poured into Sierra Nevada Tulip pint glass.

Pours a 2 finger beige head. Pretty good retention once it faces down to 1/4 finger. Leaves some lace patches. Color is a clear golden orange. A lot of carbonation bubbles floating to the top from the etching.

Aroma: At first I was smelling something I didn't like. But after a few minutes the aroma changed. Seems to be a nice smelling IPA. Pineapple citrus, very light floral hops. Now I am getting some grapefruit citrus. A big pine aroma as well.

Taste: A lot like the smell. Pineapple and grapefruit citrus, floral and pine hops, and a biscuity malt flavor. A pretty solid IPA. A huge hop flavor going on here.

Mouthfeel: Bitter, very bitter, but it is creamy at the same time when you let it roll around your mouth. Medium bodied. A fair amount of carbonation. Leaves the typical sticky hoppy aftertaste. A person really can't expect much else from these hoppy beers.

Overall, this is a pretty solid IPA. I have been going through a lot lately and this one seems to be one someone would consider a standard for an IPA. Definitely one to keep readily available for those hop heads. I could easily drink more of this.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a DFH snifter glass

A: Pours a cloudy golden body with a large chunky head. The head dissipates slowly, leaving white splotches on top. Some really nice lacing down the sides of the glass.

S: A blast of hops as well as some pine and grapefruit. Also a little bit of malt on the back. Really nice and strong, expected from Stone.

T: A lot of hop flavor on this one! A nice combination of spice and a grassy/earthy component. The hops are nicely balanced by the malts.

M/D: Creamy and smooth, very easy drinking. A great IPA that I could drink everyday.

I take this beer for granted. It is seemingly always available and ive drank it countless times yet failed to review it until now. Draft offering at the Batdorf, served in a standard pint. The brew pours a clear golden with a white cap that fades to a thin white film. Some webby lace hangs on the glass.

The aroma is dank, pine, herbal and citrus rinds like grapefruit are also thrown in there. Grain is hardly an afterthought, this nose is all about the hops.

The taste is bitter with floral hop flavoring. Some herbal grassy and dank aspects. Somewhat pithy to rindy with little to no grain inclusion. Just like the aroma suggested, the flavor too is all about the hops.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Overall ca crushable IPA that is nicely done and worth throwing a few back.

Pours a dark, hazy yellow with 1/4" of dense, foamy head. Good retention. The smell has barley malt notes, yeast, and faint citrusy hop aromas. The taste is bready malt followed by some pineapple and grapefruit with just a slight earthiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and refreshing.

Not overly bitter so it's drinkable and refreshing. The alcohol content is moderate but warms the palate. Overall balanced and solid.
