The IPA excites as soon as you pour it with its clear, golden color and the great contrast of the white head. Immediately, a fresh citrus scent paired with tropical fruit notes and a grassy hint of pine rises to the nose. The Stone IPA promises summer refreshment and can certainly keep that promise: The pale ale comes across as intensely lemony without being too sweet. The citrus note is balanced by a light malt aroma. Clean bitter notes run through the entire drinking experience, the hoppy finish keeps its promise and remains clearly hoppy and discreetly floral in the finish. The pearly rez makes the Stone IPA the perfect companion for hot summer days. Stone Brewing's Stone IPA is one of the most popular IPAs in the United States, and it enjoys great popularity in this country as well.
