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 at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, and herbal hops with melon esters, cookie and biscuit malt. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with light malt, spicy alcohol, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium to full body and carbonation.

This beer pours a clear pale orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and minty spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and spice. The finish is moderately bitter with a zesty citrus and spicy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 9, 2014
"I was a little apprehensive about the all German schtick, but if anyone’s earned the right to tinker, it’s Stone. Comes across as a delicious and incredibly hoppy yet soft imperial IPA/imperial pilsner hybrid, bringing the best of both into play. Unique yet familiar. Bready, sweet, yet piney and grassy and spicy and weed all rolled into one. Thanks ill have another. I imagine better now, after say September, it’ll fade."

Big orange taste, high abv hoppy beer. Big carbonation, along with very good drinkability. Orange colour, with lasting head. Slightly above average DIPA.Fresh from Premier Gourmet.
