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.

Solid IPA with good amount of tropical fruit scent. Bitterness is just right. Not too many layers of flavor in this IPA, but it is indeed easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass, small layer head, but decent retention. Lacing dissipated quickly. Color is gold with slight tint of orange, maybe a smidge cloudy. Smell is sweet and citrusy, like a lemon peel, but subtle for an IPA. I love the flavor. Sweet like life saver candy, but crisp and bitter finish, underlying west coast maltiness.

Strong sweet citric hop nose on this beer. West coast malty centered flavor with mild bitterness. Alcohol totally hidden. Medium and medium carbonation. Decent.

Delicious IPA | Stone Brewing. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's two fingers thick, with lateral lacing, and a translucent deep gold body.

I smell pine and citrus hops with a cracker malt base.

The taste mirrors the aroma, with more of that citrus ringing through mid-palate Very clean and crisp finish.

Medium-light mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll give Delicious IPA | Stone Brewing an overall 4.25
