Notes/Commercial Description:
Inspired by new experimental German hops, our brewing team is celebrating our 17th Jahrestag by taking palates on an unconventional tour of Deutschland by way of Southern California. In doing so, we used a grain bill comprised exclusively of pilsner malts and German hops with crazy awesome names: Herkules, Hersbrucker, Magnum, Merkur, Opal, Smaragd & Strisselspalt. Dry-hopping with Sterling, a U.S. hop with Saaz parentage, lends a bit of familiarity, but be forewarned, this is a unique beer that takes the IPA–a style we've already pushed far beyond it's previous limits over the years–to interesting new territory.

3.88/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into my New Belgium 16 oz snifter, fairly vigorously to tempt the bouquet

A: Pours a brilliant clear golden/orange color with about a finger and a half worth of soft billowy head that recedes rather quickly leaving traces of spotted lacing behind. Mildly carbonated and looking like a typical IPA should.

S: Nose is of big sweet ripe fruit. Melon, cantaloupe, honeydew, some light minty spruce, and even a bit of refined sugar....very sweet tropical nose. Some malt nuttiness is showing at the end, but the sweet fruit juice is predominant.

T: Wow, definitely not what I was expecting. Taste is of some tropical notes, melon, sugar covered berries, and some light mint.

M: Mediun mouth feel, very light cracker-like mouth feel with some mild carbonation. It usually wouldn't work, but the bitterness is actually at the low end of the spectrum. The ABV is dangerously concealed at 9.5%. Overall I like what Stone did with their German take on an American IPA. Please drink this fresh as these delicate fruit notes will diminish with time. Cheers!
