Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Smell: Smells of floral and slight citrus right after popping the cap. The smell after you pour into a glass is sweet as if crystal malt was used. Also there are several other hop smells that are nor immediately recognizable. I guess that's because most micro beers are using the four Cs.

Taste: Starts of sweet like a barleywine then taste likes its has been in a bourbon barrel and then finishes bitter from the hops. Amazing.

Color: copper in color. crystal clear.

Overall: My current favorite non: IPA, Barleywine, or Stout

This is an excellent crafted beer. For me it's really a grail beer. I love German Pilsner and I love West Coast IPA's and Imperial's. So this is really great combination. I also love Weihenstephaner Pilsner; and so Stone has really done something that I personally would have dreamed of. Taking an excellent Pilsner and making it better. This is definitely a champion Imperial Pilsner and will be a constant in my beer fridge.
