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

22oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Moderate bitterness, floral/fruity hops, some pepper and spice. So drinkable. Wow they nailed this one. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours light-amber IPA color, huge hop aromas - grapefruit, pine, limeade - beautifully balanced sweet malt and hops at 10% ABV/102 IBUs, finishing refreshingly with pine-scented tropical flavors. Another gem from the kings of high-gravity beers!
