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 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.

IPA pours a darker copper color, with a big lacing and long lasting head. Balanced aroma, but aggressive. Flavor is the same, balanced, but aggressive, lots of malts and lots of hops that are not overpowered. Good body and feel. Overall, well constructed, balanced, but strong and aggressive.

What a great IPA. Bought in a Costco sample pack, poured easy into a pint glass.color is light Amber, light white lacy foam. Laces nicely on the glass.
Smells strongly of hope, not as much as a double but more than many IPA, piney resinous and a touch of citrus. Very well balanced, just a touch of biscuit malt flavor hiding behind the hops. Big bitter without being overdone. Great beer!

I recently had a Stone IPA at a Pub here in Oklahoma City but I've had it many times before. It is without question a moderately hoppy but good IPA.

Look: golden yellow/orange hue with a pretty good white foamy head

Aroma: caramel sweetness and citrus

Taste: caramel sweetness, grapefruit, moderate pine resin that remains

Feel: light to medium body

Pours a clear golden color. Head is 1 finger, white, frothy, and retention is excellent.
The nose has a nice citrus aroma.
Taste is citrusy. Grapefruit, and just a very slight pine taste on the backside.
Feel is decent. Some feel of the hops on the way down.
A delicious IPA overall. Nothing wrong with it, and we'll made.

It pours orange golden color with white lasting head. Good retention. Smells strongly of citrusy, resiny and grassy hops with slight caramel. Taste is biscuity and citrusy at first, but it finishes fairly bitter and overly dry. Highly crisp on the palate. Medium bodied and carbonated.
