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. Its definitely all IPA, but its 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 doesnt really matter. What matters is that it exists and that its here for you now, thanks to our deliberate disregard for brewing norms. Some things are not meant to be known, just enjoyed...thoroughly.

[email protected] hki. Darker orange hazy. Pretty strong mocha coffee on npse, ripe fruits, ripe red apricots, caramels. Med full bodied, well bittered. Long long coffee beany apricotty finish. Really tasty. Strange. But tasty. Keep switching my mind between that coffee-indulgance- mode and the ripe fruity socal dipa thing. Intetresting, not the total fuckup id imagined.

rand (1620) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle 12 fl.oz / Amstein - St-Lgier (CH). Hazy coppery-orange beer, with an average ivory head. Aromas of coffee and citrus, lemon and sap, dark chocolate. The taste is soft malted, roasted with coffee, dark choc, a lot of citrus, rose and pine. Bittersweet balance with tones of alcohol and a long finale on the bitterness with notes of green coffee and its bag. You really have to like that.

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, pine, sweetness, coffee, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had hops, coffee, tartness and bitterness. A rather nice spiced hoppy brew. The coffee was mild enough.
