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.

wow, Stone Brewing, you go !!!. Great color and head with nice lacing. Hops is awesome and flavor is awesome with hops, and citrus and finishing with more hops and some citrusy-grapefruit finishing. Great balanced brew and one of the top 20 IPAs I have had. Probably top 10. The balance, as I stated before is incredible with the perfect amount of grapefruit and hops, its hard to believe !!!
