BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The IPA That Launched Generations of Hop Fanatics
First Release: August 1997

By definition, an India pale ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale—and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well-respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy, piney hop flavors and aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- pours a clear golden color with a two-finger foamy white head that has great retention and leaves some lacing behind

S- citrusy hops lead the way with grapefruit and orange zest, along with grassy notes and pine resin, light undertones of toasted malt

T- citrus grapefruit zest and tangy orange up front, followed by pine resin and grass. Mid-palate gives a hint of honey sweetness, the finish gives more citrus hops and toasted malt

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a slightly creamy finish, high drinkability

O- the quintessential west coast ipa, and one that never gets old
