Enjoyed while visiting my Mecca (Stone Brewery) and enjoying a meal at their Bistro (a must-visit if ever in North County San Diego)! The Imperial IPA appreared, smelled, and tasted true to form...in fact this little 8oz (due to the silly ABC rule limiting the size establishments can serve when ABV's reach a certain level) was very tasty! The Monkey Paw appears to only available in SD's area, which bites as I'm only out here once a year!! Nevertheless, if you're in the SD area, do,yourself a favor a check this out...you won't be disappointed!

On tap at O’Briens

A: Cornelius arrived a hazed over golden amber color. Has a nice glowing peach hue to it. Capped with a good finger of some stubborn white sea foam. Leaves sticky etches of lace clinging to the glass

S: Smell is pungently hoppy and redolent with citrus fruit. Grapefruit and gooseberries with a bit of tropical fruit mix. Some dank florals and a light lemony pine. Very clean, fresh, and aromatic.

T: An intense hop bitterness up front with flavors that seem to be showcasing Citra – dominant with grapefruit, orange, and gooseberry. There is a nice tropical twist of spiced guava mixed in and the finish brings forth more of a dank lemony herb note. Bitterness mellows as the drink progresses. Malt lends to a soft doughy bread counterpart with a light caramel sweetness. More than likely a dextrose boost here. The sweetness is providing a nice balance. Some warming alcohol noticeable but I would have never guessed as high as 9.6%. Hops linger long after the drink. This is quite nice.

M: Nice moderate body with a creamy texture overall. Even carbonation provides a good crisp dry snappy finish. Resinous with hop oils.

D: A Big west coast DIPA that packs a nice Citra punch. Yet drinks incredible smooth for the ABV’s. Bold hop flavors with enough malt character to really bring it all together.

This was definitely a stand out of for me.
