Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A citrusy IPA with Lemondrop & El Dorado hops
Crafted to reduce gluten
First Release: January 2015

While our beers are many and diverse, yet unified by overarching boldness, India pale ales are our undeniable bread and butter. The result is an intensely citrusy, beautifully bitter beer is worthy of the simple-yet-lordly title of Stone Delicious IPA. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops combine to bring on a magnificent lemon candy-like flavor that’s balanced by hop spice. It’s unlike anything we’ve tasted in nearly two decades of IPA experimentation, and another lupulin-laced creation we’re excited to introduce to hopheads everywhere.

Very citrisy and lemony flavor to this beer. Medium head to this one. More a summer beer tastes than anything. but over a decent beer to enjoy on a good day

Look - poured from a 12 oz bottle. Lemon yellow in color, and cloudy. A two-finger head that dissipates, leaving behind ~one finger worth of lacing.
Smell - candied lemon peels with light citrus hoppiness. very inviting.
Taste - hoppy, but not overly bitter initial taste, followed by a nice wave of citrus flavors rounded out with a sweet finish. really quite tasty.
Feel - medium bodied, medium carbonation, and modestly high ABV at 7.7%.
Overall - true to its name, this is a delicious IPA. it packs a nice hoppy punch but is mellow enough that non hopheads will also be able to enjoy it. i think i'll have another...

From tap; good half inch head, cloudy amber color, not much of a nose, lemon drops from the hops smack the tongue right away, second sip the bitterness comes through and helps to balance the prevailing lemon flavor. Good malt backbone rounds it out. Not my favorite, but a good solid IPA by Stone.

Appearance: slightly hazy, golden orange color; frothy white head that becomes a film

Aroma: grassy and earthy; lemonhead candies; hops; pine sap

Taste: starts with a hint of lemon and pineapple; moves into some nice caramel maltiness; the finish is clearly the star...big dank hop flavors; lemon; grassy/earthy notes; bit of pine; good hop bite that lasts awhile

Mouthfeel: medium bodied; perfect carbonation; very smooth

Overall Impression: this is a classic IPA that is bold and bitter; huge flavors; really downplays the citrus notes that are so popular in IPAs right now

Very nice. Tastes like a salted peach, or something. Very juicy with a bit of bitterness, but not too much. The look is nice with a clear copper color and some head and a bit of lacing. Smell is my favorite part. Very interesting and fragrant. Hard to describe at least for me. DRANKABLE at 7.7%. IMHO, 7.5% is the scientifically best level of alcohol for beer. Just my opinion and this sticks close to it. Very easy to get faded off.

Actually picked this up since the price was $6.99 for a six pack. Pleasantly surprised with this brew, Pours a cloudy gold color, doesn't look unfiltered to me. Hoppy with a solid malt backbone and a medium mouthfeel. Goes down pretty easily and the alcohol is pretty well hidden. I like it, I'd buy it again.
