Rod J Beer Review: Talking Stone IPA

The Stone IPA is an iconic IPA from Stone Brewing and is also listed in the book “1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die.” It comes on at a nice 6.9% ABV and 77 IBU so bitterness is to be expected. However, while it tends to present bitterness on the front, there isn’t much harshness on the finish. It displays a nice balance between the malts and hops, and sits well as a medium body beer. It may be a little too bitter for the IPA beginner, but to those that love hops it is a nice fit. When drinking it, there should be an expectation of a good duration of flavor that is highlighted by tropical and citrus notes in the aroma as well as the taste. This golden orange colored beer is definitely one of a delight and always seems to deliver.

Check out my review to gather my other thoughts on the Stone IPA.
