COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously known as Liberty Station 2nd Anniversary Mocha IPA, now a distributed Stone brand.

Clearly, style lines have been crossed. Is it half-IPA, half-stout? Not quite. It’s definitely all IPA, but it’s also the best of both styles, making this love child of a beer simply just a beautiful, pleasure-seeking meld of imperial IPA and mocha indulgence. How did we come up with this inexplicably delicious creation? Well, that doesn’t really matter. What matters is that it exists and that it’s here for you now, thanks to our deliberate disregard for brewing norms. Some things are not meant to be known, just enjoyed...thoroughly.

Aurelius (5500) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2017
Standard longneck, faux painted label with the usual small-print blather from the Stone Dude. Clear, intense bronze pour, with a dissipating oatmeal colored head. Earthy, fruity, coffeeish-acidic carob aroma. Frothy milk chocolate up front, sturdy bittering takes a backseat initially but then emerges over time. Acidic, somewhat buffered. The beer then moves on to a coldbrew/blonde coffee cast. Bittersweet finish. Interesting, offbeat, warming. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

Cerveza color ámbar corona de espuma de burbujas compactas de baja retención. Al aroma se perciben las notas a café y un sutil amargor así como cacao. Al paladar suave, fácil y ligera para beber. Se perciben notas a café amargo inmediatamente, para ser opacadas por un amargor que perdura en el retrogusto. Excelente cerveza ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear red brown. nose is glazed doughnuts, Sweet malty backbone offset by cacao and finishes off with a relatively mild hop presence. Its not bad, but not nearly as good as most of what stone puts out there. I don't love the mocha- we can do better things with the IPA. Leave mocha to the stouts n porters. 9 % is heavy for a beer ya don't love. Could be toned down a bit IMO.

CObiased (527) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2017
12oz bottle - it pours a clear almost amber orange with thick fluffy off white home. A mixed aroma of goodness like pine, citrus, sweet malt and a whiff of chocolate. Interesting flavors...the initial taste is pine sap and citrus zest then notes of mocha arrive with a meld of smooth chocolate and a hint of coffee. Delicious and unique.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 A great beer with hints of coffee, chocolate nuts, hops, citrus and honey. Although a relatively mainstream gimmicky experience, it is able to pull it off with good flavours. Plenty of sweetness balance.

[2016-11-23, Rooster, Oulu] Kuparinruskea, kirkas, luonnonvaalea vaahto. Tuoksussa greippiä ja hikeä. Maussa suklaisuutta ja kahvia.

jmgreenuk (9872) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 3, 2017
Tap at Hair of the Dog, Phloen Chit, Bangkok. Poured a slightly hazy light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is chocolate malt, woody, light resin hop. The flavour is moderate bitter, light sweet with a crisp, sweet chocolate, resin, woody, alcoholic hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Bottle. Abundance, abstinence, and annihilation. Abundance to the poor. Abstinence to the intemperate, Annihilation to the wicked.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2017 On draught. Pours a light amber, with a smal white head. Nose is cocoa and hops. Taste follows. Very nice, well balanced ale. Blends IPA with coffee. Good stufg.
