Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JTSbeerislife on 03-30-2013

Stonefly IPA has been refreshed with the addition of Citra Hops and introduction of a new dry-hopping process we call Alle Zeit Hopfen. A new dry-hopping contraption we custom built called HopfenKubel that we designed to slowly release dry-hops continuously for 48 hours into the fermentation tank. This will allow more surface contact time with the hops and beer fully maximizing the aroma and flavors from the hops. The addition of Citra Hops deliver a spicy, floral, strong citrus and tropical tone of grapefruit, melon, lime, gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee. Stonefly IPA will continue to support the efforts of the Schuylkill Action Network and donate a portion of proceeds to the Berks Watershed Restoration Fund to protect the source waters and health of the Schuylkill River watershed.

I poured this into a glass, it has a murky gold color body with a nice foamy creamy head. The aroma has a bitter hop smell. The taste has a bitter hop flavor that hits the tongue first. Then it has a little malt on the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel is good and overall a good ipa. (292 characters)

Poured clean with a light white head.

Aroma of citrus hops and mild malt.

A well balanced IPA that presented the hop bitterness without crushing the palate. Good overall body and presentation of malt. Enjoyable IPA that raised the desire for another. Nice job Matt. (268 characters)

Actually live near the brewery. Tried Stonefly on tap several times during the past few months and also buy cases at the brewery.
First time trying it, it was very good. Bought a case and it did not taste the same as the bottle. Late last year they changed the recipe a bit and it is much better.

Good appearance since they do not filter it is very cloudy, but I like that item. Pretty carbonated IPA with nice hop smell. It became my standard beer to have around this year. (477 characters)

Pours a cloudy golden amber with a medium off white head, mild lacing. Aroma and Taste is of floral citrus hops upfront, some grapefruit, yeast and bready notes and mildly fruity, caramel malt. Palate is a medium body, smooth with good carbonation. The finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast and bread notes with some grapefruit citrus and floral hops bitterness. Overall a simply good solid all around IPA. (404 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: A billowy light tan head forms above a canyon clay colored body with a heavy protein haze within. Broken soapy ring lace, faint misty rise of effervesce.

A: Aroma was light to moderate in strength, a bit sub-par in complexity, very sweet caramelized citrus best describes this with a leave of pine hops.

T: The flavor was sweetly toasted specialty grains meeting juicy wet citrus and pine hops. Lightly dry hopped, lemon straw with only a moderate hop bitterness.

M: Light mouthful, lacking in crispness, light carbonation and mildly unexciting.

O: Overall middle of the road offering that lacks stand out features. Malting is decent, a bit heavy handed on the speciality grains, but the hop strength and complexity lacks anything more then entry level appeal. (771 characters)
