Like a prize after a long day of….stuff. Deceptively smooth for a 9.4% ABV IPA, with plenty of dank resinous hop characteristics.
Nose is nice resinous hop over malty base. Flavor has a herbal bitterness I’m not a fan of and the malty sweetness predicted smell. This is the second beer from Stone, that I’ve had on the last few weeks, that was made with Loral hops and I didn’t care for it.
Another Stone double IPA, this one made with Loral and Dr. Rudi’s hops and clocking in at 8.9% ABV. I got a strong nose of melon, sweet malts, alcohol and resinous hops. Melon less pronounced as it warmed, and couldn’t identify another smell I was getting….she smelled cauliflower, which I’m not getting at all. Flavor […]
It may have been murky when bottling and when first on draft, but by the time I poured to enjoy this unfiltered double IPA, it was chunky. An enjoyable West Coast double IPA, but nothing outstanding.
Scorpion Bowl sounds like something I should be smoking. First few sips I tasted melon. Not so much now.
Suffering through an old Christmas beer. Thinking it may pair well with the cheese and crackers leftover from the x-mas party that I haven’t gotten around to throwing out.
Partially obscured by some other promising options, it was noticed a tad late. Not quite as devistatingly fresh as it could have been, but pretty good.
I done did it…Happy 4th.
Possibly not as devistatingly fresh as it could have been had I drank the day I got it, but still pretty darn tasty. Plus it’s got that 9.4% ABV thing going for it.
Very happy with this 8.4%ABV collaboration beer from Stone, Odell and Marble.
