Stone Ripper, an American Pale Ale by Stone Brewing

Share This Review

Stone Ripper is an American Pale Ale brewed by Stone Brewing, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a can.

Appearance

This pale pours a hazy copper and is topped by a very thick cap of off-white foam. Its head exhibits excellent retention and its slow reduction leaves behind patches of sticky lace.

Aroma

The aroma is pleasant with a hoppy scent of pine and citrus.

Flavor

The palate is decidedly bitter. Cascade and Galaxy varietals dominate with flavors of grapefruit, a splash of orange, and spicy hops. A backbone of malty caramel does little to balance this west coast pale.

Mouthfeel

The feel has a medium body with moderate carbonation.

Overall

Its appearance is superb and its aroma is nice. Even if it doesn’t quite prepare the taste buds for what is an assault of hops. The Stone Ripper is recommended for those seeking a Pale Ale whose taste profile more closely resembles that of an IPA.
