COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
20th Anniversary Encore Series: Stone 14th Anniversary Emperial IPA is a dry-bodied ale thats powerfully spicy with an earthy aroma. On the palate, peppery hops assert themselves early and often, with malt sweetness and a light biscuit flavor making a brief appearance before a long, complex and decisively bitter finish. There is one thing decidedly San Diego about this beer, and thats its aggressive dose of hops. 20th Anniversary Encore Series: Stone 14th Anniversary Emperial IPA is brewed to enjoy fresh but true to its origin, ages especially well on a six-month long ocean voyage.

Ungstrup (35903) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2010
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a yellow head. The aroma has notes of hops, grass, ane yeast. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of orange peal, combined with a medium hop note, leading to a dry and bitter finish, where a note of straw appears. Thanks joergen for sharing.

[email protected] (as Stone This Beer Tastes Better On Tap!). Goldeny orange colour with no head. Aroma is fruits, quite citrusy, earthy and has some mild acidic hppyness to it as well. Flavour is sweet fruits, some mild acidic notes. Brutally hopped and very bitter. Too hoppy acidic for me...

Bottled. Cloudy golden, mid-sized head. Rich citric grapefruit aroma. Dry and surprisingly crisp with medium body. Citric and aromatic, getting even drier towards the really bitter finish. Grapefruity hops with hay as a sidekick entertain on the way. Tasty stuff!

5th August 2010. GBBF.
As This Beer Tastes Better On Tap. Hazy gold beer with a tiny suddy head. Rich hops - not too bitter mind. Rich marmalade orange, strong pine notes. Underpinned by a litte sweet pineapple and traces of mango and peach. Some spice. Well joined up. Pretty good stuff. A very interesting beer - Stone takes all British ingredients and brews an IPA that is well beyond the reach of 99.9% of UK breweries! Really hope the rumours of Stone opening a UK based brewery are true!

Draught at Churchkey. Aroma of pine, citrus, grapefruit, grass. Decent malt balance, but this one is all about the hops. Straightforward. Bitter.
