Stone going retro and releasing a non-hazy double IPA for their 22nd Anniversary ale. Maybe last year’s release was unfiltered, but I think the one before that wasn’t…though not sure. I could check on the interweb and get a whole list of releases…do some fact checking…but I really don’t care. I’m just going to enjoy […]
Pizza Port and Stone Brewing collaboration “Beer Friends Forever” is a 6.2% ABV San Diego Pale Ale with pale malt body with pronounced bitterness. Finishes dry with lingering notes of citrus rind. Cheers
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.
