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.

Stone IPA - 12fl oz bottle

Look - Pours a golden with a slight copper tint. Small, foamy head. Minimal carbonation.

Smell - Smooth, hoppy aroma with hints of barley and malt.

Taste - Flavor-filled hoppy punch but not just hops, well rounded. More bitter than smooth.

Mouthfeel - Hinted hop reminder. Hop settles down but rests on the sides of the tongue.

Overall - No mistaking alcohol content in this one, definitely packs a punch!
