Notes / Commercial Description:
AVAILABLE: November 9, 2015
We make no apologies for the fact that we love brewing bold, flavorful, hop-centric beers. Naturally, we welcomed the opportunity to work with two amazing craft breweries that share our lupulin-fueled dedication: St. Louis-based 4 Hands Brewing Co., known for its innovative IPAs; and Bale Breaker Brewing Co., whose owners’ family has farmed hops in Washington’s Yakima Valley for generations. Since theirs was the first hop farm to commercially grow the beloved Simcoe variety, using that piney, stone fruit-like hop was a must. Puréed peaches upped the fruit factor, while experimental hops HBC 342 and HBC 344 introduced notes of stone fruit, tropical fruit, berries and citrus to this IPA. Yes, we made another IPA. We concede it’s not surprising, but we are who we are: an unapologetic band of hopheads psyched to explore the ever-expanding IPA universe.

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

22oz bottle with my Stone IPA pint glass
Notes from 11/19/15

Clear burnished golden body with some definite fining agents in use here. Sparkles with streaming bubbles in action. The khaki foam head is massive and dense as it settles in for a while and never fully subsiding. Random and tattered looking lace all strewn across the glass. The nose is incredibly fruit forward with lots of peach juice (go figure) and distinct Simcoe hop traits of grapefruit-citrus zest, pine, and dank leafy green notes. I get a bit of honey and caramel malt to the aroma as well as some old spiced alcohol. Fresh green pine and citrus hops seem to really flourish on a wave of sweet peach nectar. There is lots of grapefruit notes with dank herbs and lemony sprigs of pine. Has a moderate to upper amount of peppering bitters reserved by some honey graham cracker like malt. Lightly sticky mouthfeel and some decent drying efforts leading into a crisp finish. Fairly clean in the retreat with some residual lingering hop oils and fruit sugars on the palate.

Far from my favorite hopped offering from a Stone Collab. You basically have a really nice base DIPA with peach juice added. Not sure that one side really promotes the other here but I would consider this as well executed in an attempt at making a Peach IPA.

Bottle to pilsner glass. Gold color, nice white head. Aroma is lemon, pine. Taste is a typical ashy, citrusy ipa; underneath I get some peach, and a woody taste. Feel is a touch flat, but smooth. Good beer, but not great."
