Stone IPA Clone Comparison - You pick the real one!
 
I brewed an All Grain Stone IPA Clone back on March 20th. Today, I put a cobra tap on the keg in my keezer in the garage for a taste as well as to compare to a chilled Stone IPA just purchased 15 minutes ago.

My beer was dry hopped by dropping a stainless herb ball containing 1 oz. of Centennial into the keg on May 15th. I compared the two and my beer has a much better nose and hop taste. The real Stone actually tastes a bit sweeter.

Guess which one is the Real Stone IPA.

Mine is on the right. The left was a bad bottle of Stone.

Is yours the one on the left?

Not saying till we get as many posts as in my Apfelwein thread......Just kidding. :D

I'll wait till we get some more guesses. Perhaps tomorrow. In the mean time, I'm gonna enjoy my kick ass IPA, my first beer after my liver had a 3 week vacation (Doctors bloodwork came back normal).

I'm glad to hear your tests came back OK. :mug:
The least you could do is give us a taste test of the two so we can compare. :D

At first look I would have to go with RichBrewer and say left, but since I think this may be a trick I vote the one on the right.

I don't want to offend in any way, but I'm presuming the one on the left is yours...if you got a bottled Stone IPA that's that cloudy (or maybe it's the lighting?), there's something wrong with it.

Which isn't meant to imply that there's something wrong with it if it's yours :D

I cast my vote for the one on the right -- that is one very nice, thick, creamy head there. Gotta be homebrew.

Regardless, both look good!

One on the right, his Haus APA is crystal clear so I wouldn't assume he would have haze issues.

The one on the right looks like 12oz in a pint glass so I'd guess the one on the right is the real Stone. :)

Voting for the one on the left as your's just because of the slight Chill haze, just needs a couple more days in the keg and you won't be able to telll the diference. I bet it tastes great, love me some Stone Beer.
Cheers
