I've seen how nicely your beers clear up Ed. I've also seen how lame the commercial head retention is so I'm going with the one on the right.

How was the taste. I've got to get my first IPA under my belt and I'm torn betwen the DFH60 and this recipe (Stone Ruination is it?)

OK guys, you need to be clear now.

Which one is the real Stone IPA?

Mine is fricking awsome! It's actually a Stone IPA Clone, but it tastes more like the Ruination. Much better than the real thing. I'm so stoked, I'm brewing it again tomorrow.
Here's the recipe.

Single infusion 60 minutes at 153 degrees.

10.5# Pale
1# Munich
1# Crystal 20L

1 oz. Warrior 60 minutes
1 oz. Centennial 15 minutes
1 oz. Centennial 5 minutes

Dry Yeast - Safale US-05

O.G. 1.066
F.G. 1.010

Dry Hop with 1 oz. Centennial. The stainless herb ball in the keg works great!

Yours is on the left, the real Stone is on the right, by clarity and volume reasons stated previously.

"...You only think I guessed wrong! That's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!"


Seriously I think it's the one on the left.

Well if I said that the one on the left is yours then I guess the one on the right would be the Stone.

You said that you had it on tap and the Stone was from a bottle.. My guess is that yours is on the right. The head looks to me to be like a draft head.
