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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours golden with a finger of foamy head crowning the body. Good retention & lace.

Smells of apricot-orange marmalade, flowers, grassy, a hint of soap.

Taste is orange-peach slightly sweet, pine, citrus pith bitterness..in that order. Then a washing of floral bitterness which is lingering. Medium body with prickly carbonate that's just right. Mostly dry finish with hint of sweetness, good drinkability. 9.5% ABV not noticeable.

I enjoyed this, somewhat unique pilsner-IPA. I'd buy another.

Wasn't sure I was going to bother to review this until I saw how underrated this is by others.
This is a fabulous change of pace to European malts and hops by Stone. Has a delicious Pilsner-like taste combined with Rye breadiness, but then a nice and unique complex of hops explodes mid-palate and in the finish. Like an English IPA on steroids in the best way you can imagine. Much better than the last couple of Stone anniversary brews.
