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.

Seems more like a pale ale than an IPA to me. Average.

No visible bottling date info but the Wegman's pasteover label suggested it arrived at the store Sept. 30th. So it would be at least a month old.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Lawson's Finest Liquids tulip.

a: Slightly hazy amber with a two inch tall white head which receded to persistent heavy surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Floral, pine and citrus.

t: Follows the nose with medium hop bite over a bready malt base. Rather bitter finish.

m; Medium, good body, plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: An exceptional medium strength IPA, tasty with no shortage of hop bitterness or initial flavor. Inviting durable head and lacing too. Main drawback is the hop flavor fades and bitterness builds. However it is hard to say how old this bottle was when I bought it in a mixed six, and age tends to cause the hop flavors to decline.

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.

Very very mild IPA. Lacking the strong hoppy / bitter taste an IPA should have. Taste more like a pale ale. One of the poorest tasting IPA's I have had

IPA is my go to beer. Therefore I have had a lot of good IPA and a lot of want to be brewers that think they can make a name for themselves with a bold and distinctly hoppy tasting IPA. This tasted more like badly brewed pale ale. This is no where close to what an IPA should taste like. In addition I have been to hundreds of brewery's across the country and Saucony Creek Brewing has remained at the bottom of my list.
