The Brü Revü – Stone IPA
I got a case of the Stone IPA from CostCo, and although they don’t store their beer cold, which is a big no no, I couldn’t pass it up. The Stone IPA is the definition of a West Coast IPA, and it’s all hops! The hops are fresh and citrusy with a slight malty sweetness. It poured a nice golden body with a creamy head. This is an easy drinking IPA which I will have no trouble taking down a case. While I don’t hold it up there with Alesmith’s or Ballast Point’s IPA, it’s a close second. I have a lot of respect for Stone as a brewery and their IPA lives up to their great reputation.
