COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When you get three hopheads together to collaborate on a beer, it’s only natural to expect some hopped up liquid incarnation of their lupulin lust to spring forth from such a session. Maybe it seems passé to some—three masters of hoppy beer once again exploring the familiar territory of the India pale ale. After all, who needs yet another IPA, double or otherwise, right? It’s all been done. To those who feel this way, this trio’s reply is: “So what?” In birthing a double IPA made bitter and fruity care of a mélange of new and experimental hops (Azacca, Belma, and yet-to-be-named varieties from Washington’s Yakima Valley), they aren’t staying in a comfort zone—they’re hitting a sweet spot in the name of all that is good, delicious, hoppy and forward-thinking to create an IPA that’s both like and unlike anything they, or you, have ever tasted. Rife with essence of pine, resin, and fruits both citrus and tropical, there’s no need for apologies with this beer. All that’s necessary is a yearning for hops, a sturdy constitution and an empty glass.

A beautiful pale orange IPA. Bursts with hop aromas of big tropical fruit, stone fruits and a blend of pine, citrus and a hint of weed. The flavor profile puts hops in the forefront without the need for a huge amount of bitterness. This is a great example of a modern IPA.

mmargarucci (343) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Pours a nice pale color little or no head. Aroma is filled pine and some hidden tropical fruit. Taste has a nice malt profile but still hop forward. Strong pine at start which dissolves to lychee and tropical fruit. 8.8 abv is dangerously well hidden. Not as sweet as your typical double IPA. Excellent.

Tap, Whole Foods, Ann Arbor, MI. Hazy apricot colour. Sweet honey resin aroma. Thick and syrupy. Sharp citrus resin syrup finish.

hkkiwi (19) - HONG KONG - NOV 26, 2016
Draft pint at Roundhouse Wanchai. Sweet citrus on the nose. Beautiful light amber, quickly dissipating head that clings to the glass. Citrus, sativa, lychee. Sweet and sour goodness.

Golden with white head. Dank hop aroma and taste, a bit on cantaloupe melon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tightslice (1438) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 2, 2016
On tap at Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is pine, citrus, marmalade, stewed fruits (less fragrant than the Fieldwork Swash IPA I’m drinking). Taste is big hops and big malts that meld together so well and that you’d expect from Stone. A citrus bouillon, marmalade, fruit stew. A great beer from Stone...although nothing that unique or new, probably something a little more nuanced from them.

3.4
mjs (7685) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2016
(Keg at OlutExpo 2016) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, herbalness and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good one-dimensional hoppy brew.
