Stone IPA

always on the hunt for something new to taste, a family friend was spotted saturday night with one of these in hand

and i couldnt help but ask him – sooo, where’d you get that from? are there more?!

to the fridge i went where i was happily surprised to find, for one of the first times EVER, i didnt have to go to the manufacturer’s website to check the ingredients list!!

printed clearly on the bottom
“Ingredients: Nothing but Barley, Hops, Water & Yeast”

SCORE!!! and yes, i did do a little jump for joy, then quickly popped the top off to enjoy the tasty hoppy-ness it had to offer.

THANK YOU Stone Brewing Company for making my life that much easier (other brewers, feel free to follow suit)

the write up on their page says it all:

An “India Pale Ale” by definition is highly hopped and high in alcohol – you’ll find our Stone India Pale Ale to be true to style with a huge hop aroma, flavor and bitterness throughout. If you’re a hop-head like us, then you’ll love our Stone India Pale Ale! Medium malt character with a heavy dose of over the top hops! Generous “dry hopping” gives this beer its abundant hop aroma and crisp hop flavor.

this one is for sure being added to the BEER PAGE

    If it’s the “Ingredients: Nothing but Barley, Hops, Water & Yeast” you are looking for you might want to research the German Purity Law of 1516 which was in effect for over 400 years. Some of the information, like in Wikipedia, is not quite as accurate as the beer and law sites
