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 IPAsbeers that had taken a cue from the U.S. craft brewing movement and inspired us in return. Its a big reason 2008s 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, its our West Coast take on hop-driven Belgian beers.

clear golden... nice ribbons of lace. The aroma has a really fruity quality along with some pine...amarillos?? Flavor is bananas and pink bubblegum.. very fruity.. not as much pine and citrus as expected... actually fairly balanced IMHO. Dry finish.. tropical fruit as it warms.

Scopey (13314) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Keg at The Hay Merchant. It pours clear rich amber - brown with a thick white head. The aroma is rich, sweet, toffee, brown bread, candied fruits, orange peel, pine, resin and varnish. The taste is smooth, bitter, piney, resin, leather, peppery spice, toffee, dried fruits and juniper with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2016
Keg at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens Berlin, today. The first time I had a Stone Anniversary beer was in Downtown Johnny Browns in San Diego in 2008. Sadly, I dont have my book on me, so I cant confirm that it was this beer, as it could have been 2007s. Either way this is a glorious example of American IPA meeting Belgian yeast. Harmony.

kespecial (239) - - SEP 4, 2016
Bomber aged a year. Pour is clear orange, medium white head, moderate lacing. Nose is intriguing: sweet peach, pine, Belgian yeastiness, banana, light booze. Taste is full bodied and complex to the point of confusion: vanilla, pine, apricot, biscuit, grapefruit, yum. A bastradized style but success as interesting and compulsively drinkable.

Drank with Marijn, Bram and Lennart in the Stone brewery bar (awesome place!) in Berlin. Reminds me of a triple. Taste is okay, but not that compelling.

Bomber. Pours a clearish pale golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is peach, pear, grapefruit, lemon and vanilla. Flavor is loads of peach and pear, sweet cake, bubble gum and vanilla. Finish is grapefruit, lemon, lime, pine and melon. Lingering strong bitterness, citrus, peach, pear and melon. Medium to full body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Whooaaaa!
