Stone ‘Enjoy By 9.13.13’ IPA Craft Beer Review


Brewed by Stone Brewing Co.


Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

9.40% ABV

Serve at 40-45°

Availability: Rotating

Enjoyed from a snifter

A: Pours a clear amber-orange with two fingers of off-white head. Nice sudsy lacing that remains to the end.

S: Strong fragrance of piney, resinous hops and crisp citrus tones. Grassy, floral notes burst in the background, providing a nice contrast for the peach, nectarine, grapefruit, and orange.

T: The taste undoubtedly follows the nose. Big waves of fresh and crisp West coast hops dominate the tongue. Fresh citrus and peach provides a sweetness in the swallow before finally settling into a warm throat-tickling alcohol burn. Hop bomb status = confirmed.

M: Medium bodied with low carbonation. Crazy amounts of hop oil coats the tongue – very sticky with a creamy mouthfeel.

O: Stone are constantly providing some of the best West coast IPAs and craft brews straight across the board. I have a fresh Growler of W00Tstout in the fridge, but the IPAs go down so easily on the hot late-summer days.
