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.

draft. cloudy golden wheat body, small bubbled white head. musty cheese and BO nose, honey-tinged, green, raw and vegetal (onion, garlic, canned tomato sauce). similar flavor: musty, cheesy, stinky, almost putrid, with garlic, butter and onion thrown in for good measure. surprisingly soft texture, low sweetness, high bitterness, medium-high acid. but.... disgusting.

douglas88 (8942) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A very sweet orange marmalade nose, some lemon. The flavor is a robust orange peel and marmalade both bitter and sweet, some yeast and dryness, lively and easygoing. No heat. Well made. Leaves your palate with bitterness and fruity oranges. Nice.

gunnar (8783) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Strong,or megastrong hoppy aroma, fruity and grassy with a whiff of alcohol as well. Taste is strong bitter, citrus and hop tea, too much and unbalanced, almost like terpentine, dry and peppery. Strange finish, not in a good way.

b3shine (8675) - Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a hazy light light orange with sticky white lacing. Smells a little oxidized, but still sweet, hoppy (grapefruit), and malty. Tastes like it smells with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Decent, but definitely past its prime.
