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.

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.

3.53/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a thin creamy off white colored head, with brief retention and good lace, cloudy (yeast?)

The arome has some light hops followed by distinct malt, with a nice toasty/grainy quality. The malt is too dominating which is a shame as there is some hops here

Medium crisp entry on the palate, with medium bitter hops, followed by distinct malt, toasty and grainy as in the nose, ale yeast
The body is full, with a fine carbonation and light to medium sweetness

The finish is long of bitter hops and predominate malt. The hop oils linger long, with the malt hanging on to the end

Overall a good IPA, somewhate out of balance as the malt dominates the hops.
Best at 45-50 degrees
