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.

Poured from a Bomber into a Pint Glass.
Aroma- A knockout of hops, floral essence, citrus and grass.
Appearance- Poured a copper to amber color with a large white head.
Taste- A fantastic flavor! Citrus and hops perfectly balanced.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation, nice dry finish.
Overall-A world class IPA. This is the gold standard for IPAs.
