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 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.

Im going to keep this short so I can enjoy this soley!

The pour was a nice golden, burnt orange color. Tall and heavy head stuck around for some time and leaves lacing as I gulp it down. First off, the nose is amazing. Potent hops, resiny aroma, strong pine, orange peel and some more of that medicinal marijuana smell. Not a big hop monster but definately a piney one. Very well balanced and ends semi dry. Medium bodied delight in a bottle.

A must have. I expected greatness from Stone Brewing, but they have brewed a top contender here.

A - Dark yellow to light orange. Super clear with a white head. Very carbonated and keeps the head looking nice.

S - Very piney and citrusy. A lot of hops in there. Not picking up much of the malts, but that's ok with me. The more hops the better.

T - Super smooth with a little bit of a bitter bite. Very well balanced with the malts. A lot of hops in there, very piney flavor mixed in with some orange peel, and flowers.

M - Very light, love the amount of carbonation in there. Dangerously smooth for nearly %7.

O - Excellent IPA. Quite possibly a benchmark for affordable, everyday IPAs. Great job Stone!
