COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stone 10th Anniversary IPA harkens back to our earlier Anniversary Ales, with abundant hopping at many stages of the brewing process. Appropriately, the aroma is over-the-top, with pronounced piney and resiny hop flavors combined with tropical fruit esters and more subtle notes of toasted malts and alcohol. Our Stone 10th Anniversary Ale weighs in at 10% alcohol by volume (perfect for a 10th anniversary beer), and has a little more color and malt character than our other IPAs. In addition to using the new Summit hop variety in the brewhouse to provide the powerful bitterness, we went back through our records and found some of our favorite hops over the years, and used them to flavor this brew, including Chinook, Crystal, and large doses of Simcoe in the dry-hop to provide a huge, complex, piney, fruity and floral hop character. This is a colossal beer, big in every sense: hoppy, malty, rich, and strong! Right up our alley.

Re-releaase as part of the 20th anniversary encore series in 2016

ACHops (1550) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2016
On tap @ Monks Kettle. Pours clear bright orange amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, dry herbal lightly citrusy hops. Taste is thick syrupy caramel malt, hops are vegetal, herbal, lightly dank and citrusy. Really malt-driven for a Stone DIPA, interesting evidentiary take on how styles have progressed in the last decade.

Bomber. Tropical fruit hop aroma with floral and piney hop and sweet malt notes. Pours orange-amber colored with a huge off white head that has excellent retention and some soapy lacing. Starts with sweet malt and sweet tropical fruit hop flavors. Finishes dry and smooth with some piney hop bitterness as well as some floral hops. Pretty nice IPA.

Slightly hazy orange pour with a single finger white head. Tons of lace present. Aroma is full of tropical fruits, mango and passion fruit with a hint of pine. Taste is full of mangos, just oozing, ripe mangos. Medium bodied. Slight alcohol bite on the finish as well as a bit of estery yeast. Really nice beer.

Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Lagunitas mason jar From: Costco in Fashion Valley (San Diego), Calif. Price: $19.99 (for a variety 4-pack) Purchased: Oct. 20, 2016 Consumed: Oct. 22, 2016 Reviewed as: American Double / Imperial IPA Misc.: Bottled Aug. 18, 2016; 2016 release, 2006 label Had been wanting to pick up this Stone 20th Anniversary 4-pack and finally saw it for the first time at Costco for $19.99. Done. I did know that Chris H. loved this one from back in the day and the new release as well. Hoping this one was better than the fifth, which I thought was just above average. Poured a copper amber-to-red-brown amber hazy color with two fingers of khaki frothy white head. Could see a few bubbles coming up along the sides of the glass. Very good spiderweb foamy lacing. Good retention. (Sight - 3.75) Kind of different on the nose, getting sugary caramel, toffee malts, papaya, mango rind, light orange blossom, cantaloupe, melon, herbal, menthol, peach and a touch of minty leaf. (Smell - 3.75) Tasted better than the nose. Getting juicy tropical and malty at the same time. Bitter mango rind, papaya, cantaloupe, melon, sugary dark orange blossom, peach, apricot, some red grapefruit, herbal, menthol, pineapple, honey, some grassy notes and sugary pine. Boozy, but not 10 pct. ABV boozy. (Taste - 4.00) Medium body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Lively-to-average carbonation. Long, boozy finish. (Feel - 4.25) This was a pretty good double IPA and probably really good for 2006. Still good now, but not great. (Overall - 4.00) 3.95 89 B+

Chock-full of tropical and candies citrus goodness. Some sweet light malt. Slight resin in the aroma. Full, slick body. Orange with a tall white head that leaves quite the lacing in the glass. A pleasure.

DialSquare (4802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Draft from Whole Foods in Upper Arlington: Amber pour with eggshell white head. Aroma of floral and caramel malt. Tastes are perfect citrus, grapefruit, floral, malty, pine mix. Little resiny late. Insane balance and drinkable for 10abv. Can still wow me with their ipas after all these years.

(Bottle) Clear orange body with a medium, creamy, eggshell head. Aroma of citrus (orange, grapefruit), caramel malt, light pine. Silky smooth medium body; oily mouthfeel; chewy. Nicely balanced sweetness, bitterness, and alcohol. Fruity and slightly floral; some bubblegum, orange, and grapefruit; very sweet but strong bitterness cuts through, and alcohol blends everything together nicely. I really enjoyed this one.

Solid hop and banana aroma with a chewy malt profile with a bit of nut flavor within. Nice IPA.
