BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States
stonebrewing.com

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.

Aptly named!!! I would never have guessed this is a gluten free beer. Lovely citrus orange/tangerine/pine hop aroma; bright, refreshing lightly malty hop flavor that lingers. Best gluten free beer I've had so far. Stone almost never disappoints!! :D

Being a home brewer my self I can say it definitely smells like I'm putting my nose into a 2oz bag of hops but with a candy lemony smell in there as well. The taste is exactly like the smell, starting with that piney herbal quality and then all of a sudden a rush of lemon candy flavor that tastes unbelievable. I'm very impressed a hop can taste like a lemon candy! For never tasting that in an IPA before and it tasting so good I have to give it a perfect score.

For a single IPA comparing to likes of Founders Centennial and Bells Two Hearted this one deserves a definite 5.
Poured into a tulip:
L: 2" cream head, hazy orange body, tiny rising carbonation bubble body.
F: tongue tingling, dank, medium to heavy, malty and hoppy.
A: citrus, pine, and lemons.
T: just how it smells: citrus, pine, lemon, earthy, spicy, and somewhat malty.
O: delicious just as it's labeled and well balanced. Has a mild tingling to tongue but more strong than other single IPA's.

Drank from the 12 oz bottle. Head started off with carbonation but quickly became creamy. A lemon zest aroma, not too heavy but just enough to get the mouth watering. Hops comes in midway and lingers afterwards. Lemon zest lingers toward the end and then shines through, ever so stealthily. Can't tell this is an almost 8% IPA, it is refreshing and tastes amazing! The El Dorado hops are beautifully brewed alongside lemondrop to give you what you want from an IPA, but with enough character and uniqueness that you are or should be craving from an epic IPA experience! 5/5

Just stop. Quit berating that west coast hoppy casue he wants to break out: take on the east coast, the germans. That Stone taste beats all. Their basic IPA is the standard bearer they've managed to carry forward 20 years. Ruination is the best I've had. Tasted their experimentals, admire their willingness to move on. Love the Oregon competitors, can't compete on awareness. Dominate local competitors: I've seen it in my local distro: central pa: Stone comes to drive them out. Stop dissing a great beer for success. No one here or anywhere can get those cliches VT beers.
