Our first Stony Creek beers are (203) India Pale Ale and (860) India Pale Ale. Each mildly different yet truly American IPA’s. Packed with Cascade hops from Washington’s Yakima Valley, Stony Creek IPA’s have a thirst quenching citrus flavor and aroma. We balance this with light crystal specialty malts to bring you a deep golden beer that drinks easy, and won’t leave your taste buds wanting for anything.

Aroma: There is a definite breadiness to the aroma, with citrus present leaning towards orange w/ floral notes. There is a roasty, smell - not strong just sitting right with the other flavors as far as balance. Mild alcohol scent, not jumping out of the rest of the aromas tho.

Appearance: SRM is about 4-5. Clarity - slightly cloudy, & a golden copperish color. Head size was about 1/2 an inch at first pour and then very quickly dropped to a quarter of an inch with good amount of thickish lacing as you drink. Head texture is foamy, not too dense w/ an ivory to cream color.

Flavor: The flavor has a dark, toastiness to it. There is a dryness & crispness to the flavor that works. There is a citrus quality to it I would say grapefruit and mild floral tones. In terms of balance I would say it definitely skewed to the bitter end w/ some sweetness- not much.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and with medium to slightly effervescent carbonation here. Definite creaminess w/ no real trace of astringency & perhaps slightly slimy residually but not much at all. Finish - medium dry IMO.

Overall: The alcohol content is in the pocket for an IPA @ 6.10% ABV. Has a lingering bitterness, carbonation, citrus with hints of toast overall. Pleasant beer & good for a pint of something different.

Pours a light yellow with a thin head. The smell is mostly hops, seemed a bit one dimensional. The taste was very bright with a lot of floral bitterness from the hops but with some balance from the malt. The only thing I really didn't like too much in this one is the aftertaste is not very good and it sticks to your mouth and lingers far too long.

David really are diversified. It's like being in Massachusetts and knowing that you're going to know all types of people. But you don't really don't know who they're from Japan or Thailand or Korea. It's a normal typical ,very plain IPA but it's tasty to the top nice mouth feel nice love.

Thor probably wouldn't smash the glass and scream I'll try another. He probably say what else do you have an IPAs. And gentle hand the glass back to the waiter/ bartender

Definitely worth a try though
