Body and bitterness is not so different from other Stone IPA’s, but this had some unexpected notes of tropical fruit. More on the nose, but definitely there.
Nice piney and resinous nose, unfortunately the flavor doesn’t follow thru. A bit watery. Could be that I chose poorly to try after a full flavored, 7.5% ABV, west-coast IPA. I really should have a drinking plan establish before I start, instead of fumbling through it as I do. But…at 4% ABV, you can almost […]
A tad late on this one…more dry than most January’s delayed consumption of a few. This 9.4% ABV unfiltered IPA sat a bit longer and poured quite clear. Notes of melon and citrus with pronounced lingering hop bitterness.
9.4% ABV Enjoy-By today IPA. Not quite as spooky when it’s still light out, but worked just fine.
…to find that Stone Brewings 23rd anniversary beer is an IPA. I’m sure the words on the back of the bottle would tell the story of the “uncanny anni”, but don’t want to dig into the recycle bin, and, truth be told…I don’t really care. The beer itself is ok. Resinous hoppy nose, malty base […]
Stone Brewing’s 8.1% ABV imperial IPA made with pineapple and mandarin orange. Fruity up front, somewhat sweet while in my mouth and with just enough lingering hop finish to encourage another sip. Whoa… that was gone fast… who drank my beer?
A day late and typing whilst drinking in hopes the Stone Enjoy-by Police won’t remove the drink from my hand before I finish. Tastes fine to me. The 9.4% ABV is like a party in every sip.
Surprizingly good. It has a big sweet malty base I normally not a big fan of in my IPAs but with strong notes of melon and fruits it is quite enjoyable…and may be the perfect breakfast beer. It’s even got the 8.5% ABV going for it. Her Stone Berliner Weisse…not so much. Finish is bone […]
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
