BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States
stonebrewing.com

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Came in the glass a cloudy yellow colour with a small white head.

Smell was very faint I could get hops along with grapefruit.

The taste with pretty bitter with some hops and malts.

Felt very smooth in my mouth with very little carbonation.

I tried this right after drinking a bear republic racer 5 for the first time and thought the racer 5 was slightly better. I want to try this again on a fresh palate.
