April 25th, 2014 - Sesquipedalian is a name that gets more fun to say the more you drink the eponymous beer. Dark, like a dirty brass, and clear with small curls of density, this is a classy looking beer, more akin to a whiskey than anything else, with a shy head on top. Served in the isolation of Stone’s South Park location, it is as quiet and calm as the draft room itself. This gives me plenty of room to suss out the pineapple and orange juice in the nose, as well as the Stone dankness that is, by now, so familiar. The citrus scents don’t give the aroma too much of an acid feel, but it’s still pungent with those fruits. The flavor is similar to the aroma, leading with a dank weed that starts in the mid-taste and dominates through the aftertaste. At the beginning of the spill I catch more of the pineapple and orange juice that previewed themselves in the aroma. On the sweeter side, this is still an IPA with plenty of dankness to balance against the sweet citrus notes, and makes a perfect balance for my palate. This might be the start of my conversion to San Diego style IPAs.

Keg at Stone Liberty Station, SD, 18/04/14. Clear golden amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is bitter hops, pine, bitter grapefruit, orange pith. Taste comprises caramel malt, boozey tones, bitter grapefruit, tangy orange. Full bodied, fine carbonation, agrressive hop bitterness in the close. Ok DIPA - a bit boozey and hot at times, I wouldn’t want whole lot of this one!
