COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stone 10th Anniversary IPA harkens back to our earlier Anniversary Ales, with abundant hopping at many stages of the brewing process. Appropriately, the aroma is over-the-top, with pronounced piney and resiny hop flavors combined with tropical fruit esters and more subtle notes of toasted malts and alcohol. Our Stone 10th Anniversary Ale weighs in at 10% alcohol by volume (perfect for a 10th anniversary beer), and has a little more color and malt character than our other IPAs. In addition to using the new Summit hop variety in the brewhouse to provide the powerful bitterness, we went back through our records and found some of our favorite hops over the years, and used them to flavor this brew, including Chinook, Crystal, and large doses of Simcoe in the dry-hop to provide a huge, complex, piney, fruity and floral hop character. This is a colossal beer, big in every sense: hoppy, malty, rich, and strong! Right up our alley.

omhper (19239) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2007
Bottled, thanks cquiroga! Cloudy reddish amber. Vast aroma of grapefruity hops. Solidly malty with predominant cookie malt character covered in an abundance o fsalty graepfruity hops. Lingering really bitter finish. Pretty straight forward beer, not the most complex in the world, but quality all the way through.

madmitch76 (14513) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009
11th September 2008. Cloudy brown beer. Rich and full IPA. Initially comes accross as a well hopped barleywine but then bitter grapefruit and sweet marmalade give it that extra IPA dimension.

harrisoni (13288) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2009
Bottle at Chris o New Year tasting 08/09. I think Phil l brought this, so thanks. Hazy cloudy amber colour, thin lasting beige head. Piney hop aroma. That’s a bit surprising. Perfumey. Not my favourite of the Stone beers. Very hoppy finish. I can see that it’s good, but it just didn’t do it for me.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
Hazy dark amber. Woody, oxidized hops in the nose. Big chewy flavour, herbal, minty hop notes. Caramel, lots of alcohol. Quite a bit of bitterness and residual sweetness. A big bag of intense.
