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.

dresden (1566) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
Clear golden, slightly orange.Aroma is belgian yeast, slightly fruity hops. Smooth candi sugar, yeasty, with a light bitter hop bite. Overall, pretty good but it was probably a lot more out there in 2008.

zoucrew102 (1721) - - MAR 4, 2016
Bomber. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with light clove notes as well as citrus hops and some banana also. Pours clear golden colored with a thin white head with good retention and lacing. Starts with spicy Belgian yeast and a bit of clove. Finishes dry with citrus hop flavors unfortunately though the banana is hidden by the bitterness of the hops. Very nice, but miss the banana of most tripels.

neongolden (1445) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2016
(650ml Encore Series bottle from Systembolaget, shared) Pours clear dark gold with an average white head and lace. Nose is semi-sweet, floral, grapefruit peel, white pepper, orange flesh, biscuits, bready yeast. Flavour has semi-sweet orange, grapefruit, apricot, floral, phenolic, leafy, bready, white pepper. Semi dry finish with light bittering hops, herbs, grass, grapefruit peel. Medium-full bodied with fairly high carbonation and a little alcohol warmth. Hop fade definitely going on here, par for the course with Stone at SB. An ok tripel behind it, but nothing awesome. Maybe better fresh.

Pedro_Pinho (233) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2016
Nice and fresh aroma of citrus and hops. Clear golden color with a lacy white head, looks like a lager (scarry). Taste a bit light, could be somewhat more hoppy and some bitternes is missing for me. Nice overall, but slightly disapointing, or maybe I was expecting too much.
