COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 2008, Stone Brewmasters Steve Wagner and Mitch Steele traveled to Belgium, where they enjoyed a number of hop-forward Belgian tripels, pale ales and IPAs—beers that had taken a cue from the U.S. craft brewing movement and inspired us in return. It’s a big reason 2008’s summer season came to be known at Stone as our “Summer of the Triple.” Upon their return, they crafted Stone 08.08.08 Vertical Epic Ale, the seventh beer in the 11-beer Stone Vertical Epic Ale series. Packed with floral, spicy essence from Belgian yeast plus plenty of hoppy New World character, it’s our West Coast take on hop-driven Belgian beers.

Samuel214 (446) - SWEDEN - APR 26, 2016
Flaska från SB. Provning med ölsällskapet. Näst intill klarorange med vitt skum. Belgoton i doften, åt det sötare hållet. Subtila toner av mango och passion. Lite svårplacerad. Ganska lätt kropp och märkbar alkohol. Även här belgotoner, men också lite mer IPA-karaktäristisk kåda och citrusskal. Svår att ringa in, men bra hur som.
