BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing

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.

This is a delicious, super smooth IPA. Very drinkable with only a little bit of bitter aftertaste. It smells and tastes pretty grapefruit-y. The bitterness is well balanced with some sweetness, like fresh citrus zest and pith. It's surprisingly refreshing. I could drink this one every day.
