BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing

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.

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.

Very nice citrus IPA. Citrus aroma is light but the grapefruit aroma stands out. Good balance beer, overall good beer but the bitterness is slightly high which for my preference slightly strong but overall it is a good beer. No problem purchasing it again.

Bottle consumed at Buffalo Wild Wings Casper.

Pours a slightly hazy pale gold, small head of foam, good lacing.

Smells of grapefruit, tropical fruit, lemon.

Taste is the same, hoppines is kinda dank and resinous. Cracker malt is there but overwhelmed by the hoppy goodness.

Nice mouthfeel, nice IPA.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. IMO it tastes better once warmed and as you go along. Only tried IPA and this one from Stone. They both hit hard at first and then get softer as you go. Overall I enjoyed it and would purchase again. A little sweeter than the flagship IPA. I enjoyed the smell more than anything.

12oz bottle in a nonic pint glass.

Pours a copper-orange color with a 1F off-white colored cap with staying power and heavy ring lacing. It's just slightly cloudy.

Modest aromas. Some light lemon citrus, clean malt, a bit of alcohol and there's the note of onion that I seem to find in Stone IPAs.

Alcohol soaked malt with a touch of lemon.

Medium body with a silky feel. There's hop bitterness and alcohol bite.

My numbers are scattered because the beer falls short on flavor.
