look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Nice bottle art. Silk bottle with both Bodebrown and Stone logos. Pours a slightly cloudy orange color forming a medium creamy and thin bubbled light yellow head. Great retention and lots of soapy, molasses and lingering thin lacings left in the glass

S: Awesome in the nose. Traditional American IPA perfectly combined with notes of cocoa and chocolate. Sweet malts, caramel malts, dry fruits: Raisins, mainly. Citrus and grassy hops profile, I would dare to say that there's Centennial. Notes of orange zest and grapefruit

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of caramel, chocolate, raisins, grapefruit, orange zest, caramel malts, crystal malts. Intense but absolutely pleasant bitterness. Great bittersweet balance. Less aggressive than Perigosa. Hops are quite grassy and citrus with some light pine notes

M: Heavy and creamy body. A bit molasses. Medium to high carbonation. Caramel and citrus bittersweet in the aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. Definitely, the best Brazilian beer I've had so far followed by Perigosa and Invicta IIPA

Although I have had the pleasure of drinking this beer on tap from the Bodebrown brewery tasting room, my review today comes from a bottle procured from my good friend Jose, visiting from Paraguay. It pours a medium to deep amber with a delicious, creamy and full white head. There is a slight haze, but to be colloidally expected from an IPA that has made an 8,000 mile journey to Denver. The aroma is sweet, but not cloying, with fantastic bouquet of caramel, cocoa, and earthy hops, and just a touch of heat coming through with the 6.1% ABV. The taste is brilliantly balanced with the bitter sweet flavor of the cocoa, the caramel from the malt, and the bittering level the of hops. The flavoring hops are suggestive of a slightly more fruity variety that compliment the cocoa and adds to the complexity. Overall I love this beer because not only is it different from any other beer I've tried, but it is extremely well done, and is a real pleasure to drink, and even makes me wish I had a whole case of this stuff.

Tive a oportunidade de prova-la logo após o seu lançamento. Achei bem interessante. Normalmente esperaríamos a mistura de cacau com outros estilos, e não com uma IPA. Recomendo que a provem também. Infelizmente hoje em dia já é difícil encontra-la disponível, espero que façam mais uma leva na produção.

Bottle obtained in a trade. Thx! 33 cl. bottle split. Very cool looking bottle. A Stone colab. Made only for the Brazilian market? Pours clearer amber with a big white head. Nose is sweet, sweet cocoa, caramel, sweet malts mixed with some pine & grapefruit hops. Taste is sweet cocoa, mixed with bitter herbs, sweet, caramel malts, bitter herbs & pine hops in the back. Bit fizzy body. Cocoa is pretty sweet which makes this a pretty sweet IPA, the combination doesn’t really work in the aspect. Still it tastes very interesting & overall this was a nice brew to try.

Very awesome to be vacationing in Brazil when they release a collaborative IPA with Stone! IPA brewed with cocoa nibs, on tap at Hop n Roll Beer Club, Curitiba, Brazil.

Pours murky orange, with an off white finger of head that leaves loads of lace in its wake.

Aroma bursts with cocoa and citrus fruits. Its not aggressively hoppy, which lets the nibs shine too. A very nice marriage.

Taste is again quite chocolaty, with some tropical notes and citrus. Its very good, but the ibus could use a boost, bitterness is light.

Feels great, medium body, creamy.

Very interesting IPA, but definitely in a good way!

Serving type: on-tap
