ABV – 6.9%

IBU- 77

 I’ve personally enjoyed many of the beers I’ve tasted from Stone Brewing Company, but I never understood how they’ve garnered such a devoted following. I honestly went into this review with a much more critical eye…hoping for some flaw…but it was not to be.

Stone IPA is golden in color with a frothy white head.

It had a floral hop aroma that is intermingled with what smells a bit like toasted malt.

Stone’s IPA is crisp and satisfying. The grassy hop notes hit immediately while a subtle malty sweetness fades in behind it. The finish is bitter and leaves you longing for the next sip.

Stone’s IPA is a well-balanced ale. It’s quite tasty actually. I think now I finally understand the hype. I enjoyed the experience from first sip to last…and I think you will too. So…if you haven’t had the opportunity to try Stone IPA, what are you waiting for? Get off your butt and go get some!

Cheers.
