Stone IPA ....

Tonight I will be having an India Pale Ale from Stone Brewing Company.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 6.9% ABV.  The Stone web site shows 77 IBUs.

This IPA poured with a small to medium, bone colored head.  The beer itself is a lovely golden shade.  The aroma is not overly intense, with citrus and pine, maybe a little sweetness.  Medium bodied.  The taste is heavy on the hops, with the citrus and resinous pine there pretty much throughout the sip.  I get some malt at the beginning, then again towards the end, which fades into a nice bitter aftertaste.  No real hint of the somewhat higher alcohol, as this one seems like a beer you could drink several of.
