COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: Originally tap only and listed at 8.3% abv and 116 IBUs.

While our beers are many and diverse, yet unified by overarching boldness, India pale ales are our undeniable bread and butter. We’ve brewed many over the past 18 years, from double-down bitter bombs to piney session sippers. Whether it’s big IBUs or a precise ABV, there’s usually a target we’re shooting for. The same is true of this, our latest IPA, but we gave zero thought to any acronyms. This one was all about packing as much unique and, you guessed it, delicious flavor into a glass as humanly possible, regardless of oomph or octane. This intensely citrusy, beautifully bitter beer is worthy of the simple-yet-lordly title of Stone Delicious IPA. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops combine to bring on a magnificent lemon candy-like flavor that’s balanced by hop spice. It’s unlike anything we’ve tasted in nearly two decades of IPA experimentation, and another lupulin-laced creation we’re excited to introduce to hopheads everywhere.

Bottle description: Great beer is for everyone and anyone with the good taste to recognize it, not just a niche group like us über beer geeks. So, when we developed this pleasantly bitter, deliciously citrusy, hop-driven IPA, we took it as an opportunity to go a step further and do something we’d spent over a year researching and perfecting: creating a beer that makes it possible for nearly everyone to experience our aggressive, no-holds-barred approach to craft brewing. It’s a flavorful, cutting-edge, modern-day IPA for everyone. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops provide plenty of fruity citrus character and a burst of hop zing that sings on the palate. We’re proud to present it to those who already know us for our IPA prowess and to those who, so far, have only heard the legends.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 Love the flavor but feels a bit heavy on the tongue. Definitely not a session beer for me.

Super easy to drink for the abv! Pours a light gold, white head, heavy lace. Nose is citrus and hay, grasses. Pine shines on the tongue, zesty spice, traces of caramel. Nice creamy feel... Outstanding!

12floz bottle, bought as part of $10 mix-six, BOD: 06.21.2017, BBD: 10.04.2017, pint glass. Before imbibing I note that beer is yellow, has little head, and the aroma is fresh spearmint. I get the same aroma as the dominant flavor too, lemon zest, and orange rind in the back round out the bitterly full palate. I like a few things about this beer, but it has a harshness that counters the good. More like so-so IPA, amirite...

From bottle. Pours a clear light orange with a 1 1/2-finger white head. Aroma is a bit malty, but mostly citrus. The taste also has a hint of orange candy. Wonderfully nice. Medium mouthfeel. Perfect bitterness. This really is a delicious IPA.
