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.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a pint glass. The color is a very light yellowish gold color with a foamy white head. Also has some nice lacing. The smell is sweet, a peppery, floral hop feel. The taste was sweet as well, a nice malty flavor. with some nice hop feel. A great floral flavor. The mouthfeel is really even, smooth and is quite easy drinking. This is anther good Stone beer. It is full flavor and it really great beer.

A very citrus aroma. Orange, lemon and lime. This is a great hopped-up triple. Thick with a good spicy and hoppy flavor. It seems to start like a triple and finish like an imperial IPA.
