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.

If this beer was still available. I would recommend anyone to go for it. Tasty and pleasant beer.
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing. Looks good. Pleasant and a fine intensity in the aroma. Nice hoppy and fruity touch. Some alcohol. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness to back it up. Flowery, some yeast, fruity, toffee and some alcohol in the flavor.
