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 aleā€”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.

This may be my favorite IPA now! Stone Brewing makes some very good beers. Very assertive front taste and smooth finish. Nice golden hue coloring with very little head. Very crisp to taste, small bite at beginning and like I said smooth finish.

Pours a clear amberish with a solid 2-inch thick white head which leaves fine lacing. Pine and fruity aroma. Bitter and dry and slightly sweet. Good malt balance.
