COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest anniversary beer, starring an all-German cast of malt and hops, is yet one more glorious example of a Stone IPA brewed outside the box. Our brewers have brought their experiments with German hops to fruition, leaving convention behind to create this hefty IPA entirely with pilsner malts. These provide a superbly crisp mouthfeel, while a unique mix of noble and new-school hop varieties adds layers of bright, bitter flavors. Despite the daunting name, this beer isn’t designed to bring about the end of the world, but it just might destroy some of your preconceived notions of what an IPA can be.

Hops bill: Bitter-hopped with Magnum Late kettle additions: Herkules, Merkur and Opal Whirlpool: Emerald (aka Smaragd) and Strisselspalt from the Alsace region of France, which is just a stone’s throw across the Rhine from the German border. Dry-hopped with a 50/50 blend of German Hersbrucker and Sterling

Malt bill: Weyerman Pilsner Malt, Briess GoldPils Vienna

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a huge fluffy white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Hoppy aroma, lots of citrus, with malt, sugar, grass, and a hint of pine. Taste is smooth and bitter, of citrus and pine hops, malt, grass, sugar. Lingering smooth bitterness. Nice IPA.

Bomber - light orange in color with a medium head. Nice citrus hop flavor and extra dry all the way through.

NikkTwist (3101) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy orange pour with white foam that left some sporadic lace. Fuzzy tangerine notes. Tons of flavor! Slight tartness. Apricot fuzz. Peach pits. Crystallized ginger. Peppercorns. Passionfruit. Starfruit. Quince. Apple seeds. Chanterelle mushrooms. Oak planks. Nice deep flavor palate. Juicy amber fruits with a big dry spicy finish. Great stuff!

BelgianBeerGal (4020) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from Sun Devil Liquors I found lurking in the back of the cooler. Clear gold-amber color with a long lasting, foamy white head and decent lacing. Big aroma of pine needles and sap but also some sweet malt mixed in. Pretty nice flavor where the bitterness is not overpowering. You can tell the German ingredients do make a difference compared to the bigger, typical west coast IPA. Very drinkable.

Corrinado711 (80) - - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours orange /golden color, clear, very thin, fine white head. Aroma hops, bread, light citrus. Taste is mostly hops, bread, sour, acidic with a nice bitter, wet hop finish. Mouthfeel us nice and full. Rare lacing. This ipa has a strong wet hopped character without the usual super bitter finish.

ttutony (892) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Slightly hazy golden color in the glass. Complex hop aroma with floral, slightly spicy, slightly fruity components. Rich and smooth mouthfeel. Pleasant sweetness. Excellent beer.

jb (3193) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Got in Niagara Falls. Dark yellow, a bit of haze, not much head. Meh on the appearance. Nose is dominated by malt, and mild citrus. Taste is very well integrated. Subtle. Surprised by the German hops, these did not taste or smell like I recall. Nice.

Ron (3887) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden with a small white head. Has a fresh floral herbal hop nose with citrus and clean biscuity malts. Starts with good citrus fullness and sweet pale malts well-balanced with an assertive piny flavor hop profile and a healthy dose of bitterness. Finishes drier with lingering bitterness. A unique and well-made brew. Thanks for sharing JB.

IndianaRed (4402) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle shared by Pinkzambia. Slightly hazy golden light orange. Moderate citursy and resiny aromas and flavors. Didn’t taste as big as it claims. A tasty and manageable DIPA

pinkzambia (1931) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle: Gold color with a nice white head and sticky lacing. Basic hoppy earthy aroma with a solid backbone of hop flavors. A worthy beer of praise this is!
