Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

On tap at Romas Restaurant in downtown Pottsville PA.

Bought to the table in one of those pint glasses with ads all over it, which made it difficlut to judge the appearance. Appeared to be somewhat cloudy, with a thin head. Head did maintain to the end however, and there was some lacing, again difficult to judge due tothe glass (I realize that this is out of SC's control)

Smell gave off a good strong whiff on hops.

Taste was very good, which I confess was a bit surprising since I've never given SC much credit. Full hops flavor in the entire mouth. Did leave just a bit of an odd unpleasant taste right in the back of the mouth. However this did not linger, and did not much hinder my enjoyment of this beer.

Mouth was above medium, very slightly syrupy.

Overall, a good beer to have with my wings. Nice and hoppy. I see it's only a limited one time release. Pity, I'd like to have this again. Oh, well, back to Romas later i guess.
