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.

Had on tap at Max's during Hopfest (8/16-18/13)

A: Golden copper lacing.

S: Citrusy and floral.

T: Super strong floral and citrus. Lots of flavor. Grass and pine.

M: Minor, even carbonation. Nice and coarse.

O: Top notch on draft. I love what the pilsner yeast does to this IPA.

Colors are very well done. When held up to light, I can see a strong blonde hue along the sides with a golden center.

Mango, grapefruit and pine seductively tickle the olfactory gland, hinting at an even greater bouquet within.

This is exactly how I imagined it. A harmonious cross between the pine-heavy East Coast IPA and citrus-heavy West Coast IPA. So much flavor to go around.

Bitter and dry, coating the entire mouth and leaving a tasty buttery malt imprint on the tongue, followed by pine resin. I believe that a spicy entree would benefit from this fine DIPA.

Stone have outdone themselves this year with this fine entry. It's definitely at the top for me.
