Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

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.

12oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Dain!

Pours into an imperial pint glass, forming a 3 1/2" beige head over the same depth of clear coppery brew. Head is the Energizer Bunny, on and on it goes, eventually deflating, with plenty of chunky lace. Aroma is floral hops.

Taste starts sweet, clunks bitter in the middle, and balances some through the close. Kind of generic bitterness with little complementary notes. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. Not a standout for me, but a solid brew.
