Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A citrusy IPA with Lemondrop & El Dorado hops
Crafted to reduce gluten
First Release: January 2015

While our beers are many and diverse, yet unified by overarching boldness, India pale ales are our undeniable bread and butter. The result is an intensely citrusy, beautifully bitter beer is worthy of the simple-yet-lordly title of Stone Delicious IPA. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops combine to bring on a magnificent lemon candy-like flavor that’s balanced by hop spice. It’s unlike anything we’ve tasted in nearly two decades of IPA experimentation, and another lupulin-laced creation we’re excited to introduce to hopheads everywhere.

On tap. White head with lace.

Earthy, piney, bitter. Grapefruit citrus. Floral. Very hoppy, very green. Some resin. Very sticky and dank aftertaste.

Not my jam.

Looks hazy straw color with decent lacing. Smells of citrus hops. Tastes clean and crisp with nice lemon hop bite. Feels smooth and silky, not viscous at all. Nice dry snap finish.Very little malt presence. Overall a decent West coast style IPA. Not my favorite, would have again for free.

Amber color with a little haze and a nice clingy, foamy head. Didn't pick up much at first on the nose besides the malt, but digging deeper, got some subtle tropical fruit and pine notes. Orange peel, pineapple and grapefruit mark the good flavor characteristics on the front palate, with a nice, smooth malty base. Very balanced, not bitter on the finish at all. Feel was medium, with a decent coating of the palate. Overall a solid IPA, nothing too noteworthy. Could slam a bunch of these on a hot Vegas day.

Looks light yellow gold
Smells like tangerine orange peel lemon rind
Tastes thirst quenching and citrusy, slight bitterness
Mouthfeel is light and juicy
Overall not bad. Doesn't really mark itself as uniquely memorable but overall decent

The name definitely fits. A light colored beer, pours easy, and goes down easy. It has a light citrus smell. A great summer beer for a hot day.
