The Stone IPA is the definition of a West Coast IPA, and it’s all hops! The hops are fresh and citrusy with a slight malty sweetness. It poured a nice golden body with a creamy head. This is an easy drinking IPA which I have no trouble taking down. Very impressive for a standard line-up IPA.

Pours a crystal clear, orange-tinged straw with a big pristine white head that settles down to a nice inch-plus cap of foam with a constant stream of champagne-like carbonation shooting up from the base of my tulip. Great retention; beautiful gloppy lacing. Nearly perfect.

Crisp and cool, a bit sweet at the beginning and pretty bready throughout. Rich cereals and a touch of warm malt but citrusy hops are the predominate aroma I detect. Very good.

Dry and bitter with a lingering medicinal twang in the back of the throat. Pepper, oats, grass, hops, orange rind.

Clean and bubbly. Good strong carbonation, light-medium body, lingering bitter finish/aftertaste.

Excellent IPA!
Gorgeous to look at, the smell is probably the weakest point of this beer and even it is quite nice and very subdued. The hop flavors are relatively one-note, but they are quite good and manage to dominate the beer without overpowering you. The aroma is much maltier than the taste is; however even the taste has some very strong cereal flavors which kind of form a nice backdrop for the medicinal hop notes at the end.
Would definitely have again; worth seeking out.
