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

Draft at Jerry’s / Orange with good, foamy, white head, fair lacing / Bright nose of fresh-squeezed oj, cream, pine, resin / Medium to full body, lush, sweet but with excellent balance and hop bite, bitter finish / Flavors of orange peel, grapefruit, pine, caramel, cream / Just great, with spectacular body.

if you’ve ever had your hands sticky with pine sap and smelled them, that’s the exact same aroma. Taste is also pin-heavy, but with some citrus and tropical fruit thrown in as well. Another amazing IPA from Stone.

Bule (2255) - California, USA - AUG 16, 2013
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a pale golden color. Strong hop flavors that start out really mellow. Bitter aftertaste that lingers. Very unique hop flavor.

22oz bottle. Pours pale gold in color. Buttery hop aroma. Very unique hop aroma, spicy and bitter. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not much more to say on this one, one smooth double IPA. Buttery, velvety texture and taste. Malt comes through, not covered by, but in concert with the hops. Very well done indeed.

tobias (208) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2013
22 oz bottle: pour is an almost clear bright golden color. Tight white foam. Hoppy aromas comprised of citrus, herbs, resin, and pine dominate. Hints of bread and cereal. Favor is intense hoppiness up front with a malty backbone to balance the bitterness. Herbal, floral, citrusy flavors explode forward with toasty malt flavors playing the support role. Clean flavors. As someone who prefers American hops, i am a fan of this beer. Well balanced and easy drinking.

Crash_the_dog (181) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Beautiful blonde color with creamy head. Nice lacing and a gentle hoppy aroma. Balanced full flavor without being overwhelming. Really amazing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.4
DiarmaidBHK (5898) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Draft at World of beer Raleigh. Pours orange with an inch of white foam. Leaves a bit of lacing in the glass. Has a kind of fruity sweetness on the nose. The taste is pure tropical fruit with a hint of maltiness. Finishes clean. One of the more drinkable DIPA’s I’ve had so far.

4.4
obguthr (6656) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Powerful lilly and marigold aroma, with rosehip accents. Hazy amber, thin head. Drinks as divinely as it smells, marigold and lemongrass. Finishes with whole grapefruit. Intense and well balanced. Medium bodied and easily drinkable for 9.5 ABV. Very special.

4.4
kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Golden bier with lots of bubbles and a lasting, white head. Aroma is a little bit of earth and straw. Its very crisp on the palate and has a decidedly bitter taste with a little hoppy sweetness near the finish. Fresh and refreshinly unique.
