Just the Good Stuff
Stone IPA is a straight-forward example of a hoppy, crisp, West-coast style American IPA. The Malt and hop bill is the picture of simplicity that yields and extremely enjoyable, crisp, refreshing IPA.
From the Stone Brewing Website : "Light-medium malt character with a heavy dose of over the top hops! Two full weeks of "dry hopping" give this beer its abundant hop aroma and crisp hop flavor."
