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.

A - pours a golden yellow color which a small, off white head which leaves lots of lacing on the way down

S - mild citrus, hints of wheat.

T - mild maltiness followed up by an absolute assault of hops. Deep piney, resiny bitterness.

M - thick with ample carbonation. Very resiny

D - huge beer that is a complete hop bomb. Unbalanced but delicious

22 oz bottle poured into an IPA glass. Enjoy by date 10/17. Consumed on 8/30.

A - Golden in color. Clear/no cloudiness. Poured a light head. Distinct lines of carbonation.

S - Very fragrant. Hints of citrus and apricot.

T - Hints of lemon, honey, grapefruit, and pine. Delivers nice alcohol notes and good deal of desirable bitterness.

M - Appropriate carbonation. Clean and crisp.

O - Very nice taste, although pilsner hops were not apparent to me. Another good product by Stone.
