BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States

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.

Pours an unfiltered looking light gold. Barely a head even with a hard pour. Lemon fragrance and good citrus taste you expect. Felt very sharp with a little more carbonation than was necessary. Overall a good change of pace from the regular Stone IPA.

I can’t believe this is rated above a two. Bought a six pack of bottles and will use the last five for cooking. No hop taste and it tastes metallic. Hard to believe this is classified as an IPA. Blah....

12 oz. bottle - freshness date of 05/17/18:

Pours hazed golden with a thin white head that becomes a wisp. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus.

The taste is citric with leafy/herbal spice. Wet cracker-like malt keep hop bitterness refreshing and smooth. A touch of lemon in the finish.

It hits full-bodied. Alcohol reasonably well-covered. Smooth overall.

A well-named brew. It is delicious.

I like this beer... Very well balanced and knows what it is going for. Tight, crisp flavors and feels that compliment and challenge each other. A very nice resident beer in my fridge that most of my beery friends like. Give this one a try!

Prefer a lower abv in an IPA. Picked this up in a six pack on sale. The Stone balrog is not my friend on this bottle. He rasps - "mistake" as i sip it down, and ponder all this useless beauty.

12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Great price point at $9 and change at Safeway for 6 pack. I love that the crafted on and enjoy by dates, 3/26/18 and 7/9/18, are clearly printed on the bottom of the neck.

L: A beautiful filtered tangerine colored beer, fine bubbles streaming up to the top
S: Citrusy, lemon, hoppy goodness
T: Classic west coast style IPA with big citrus, lemon hop profile, with bitter finish. It’s delicious.
F: There is nothing abrasive about this beer, a very palatable and refreshing brew
O: Unique, and well crafted IPA. Stone does it again

This is another tasty IPA from Stone with a wonderful citrus aroma. Albeit it’s good, it’s a bit bitter on the back end and in my opinion, not as good as the regular IPA.
