COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stonefly India Pale Ale 6.8% ABV This is our nod to the time-honored vintage hops that made American IPA’s so great. Hops like Cascade, Centennial and even the long forgotten Chinook are showcased here for their unique flavors and aromas. The bitterness is moderate while supporting the direct burst of hop fruitiness throughout the beer. A delightfully quaffable American IPA.

I enjoyed my Stonefly straight from the bottle while kicking back in my backyard. Great beer, great flavor (ice cold) The label was interesting enough to draw my attention to the bottles, to try it. Way to go Kutztown, Pa. another great beer from Saucony Creek Brewery! You’re lucky to have them.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (sugar cookie, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, flowers, cantaloupe). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Solid IPA here for sure. Nice aroma with enticing fruit and virtually no raw resin stink or other unpleasantries...clean and succulent and balanced in the mouth as well, so very enjoyable to drink the whole bottle, which is a rare thing for me so yeah...kudos to the brewer on this one.

Draft. Aroma of citrus, grass. Bold copper body with thin head. Flavor is citrus, grassy hops and a little grapefruit. Mouthfeel is thin and disappears way to quick. Decent.

Bottle. This is a decent little IPA. Nothing earth shattering but I liked it a bit better than some others it looks like.

Saucony Creek Stonefly IPA has a medium, white head, some lacing, and an orange (milky orange, once the caked sediment is swished and poured), fiercely bubbly appearance. The aroma is a bit odd- slightly turned fruit, apricot, and white bread. Taste is better- tropical fruits, sweet, white bread, sugar, and moderate, mellow hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Saucony Creek Stonefly IPA finishes semi dry and pleasant. RJT

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of citrus and floral notes. Tastes of citrus, floral notes, malt, candied fruit. Medium body with a dry finish. Solid if you’re into maltier IPAs.
