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.

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.

This pours a semi-clear golden yellow color with a slight head. The aroma is bold with hops. The taste is bitter, dry, and perhaps one of the best IPA brews on the market. Outstanding and a must try!

Slightly hazy straw colored body. Good amount of white fluffy head. Pungent hoppy earthy aroma. Very bitter flavor. Lots of citrus flavors. Tasty!
