Stone Pataskala Red X IPAStone Pataskala Red X IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States
stonebrewing.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.30%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Pat-ASK-ala? Pata-SKALA? Pa-TASK-a-la? While those in the know favor the third pronunciation, no matter how you say it, this is a unique red IPA. The beer was first brewed in September 2015 to support music and arts education programs in Pataskala, Ohio, where Stone co-founder Greg Koch grew up. People there loved it, so we added the beer to our seasonal lineup. The deep crimson hue is courtesy of a fairly new special German malt variety by BESTMALZ called Red X. Dry-hopped with Mosaic, Cascade and Amarillo hops, this beer is incredibly citrus-forward, rounded out with biscuit and toffee notes. We think you’ll find this red IPA to be quite deliciously satisfying, no matter how you choose to pronounce it.

12 oz bottle that states bottled 2/21/17 enjoy by 05/22/17

Appearance- from a hardy pour into my sierra Nevada spiegelau ipa glasss. it's a transparent amber/ crimson red color with a super frothy off white head. leaves some solid lacing.

Aroma- smells like a lager. just biscuit. thought this was an ipa?

Taste- bitterness with a floral hop. expecting tons more from cascade and mosaic dry hop. biscuit. malty for an ipa.

Mouthfeel- solid medium bodied. alittle over carbonated if you ask me but still nothing worth complaining over.

Drinkability- can drink five out of the six pack tonight. don't ever see purchasing this again unless options are limited.

Overall- I was expecting a lot more hop action coming from this brew but it's definitely on the malty side of ipa's. as it warms up I pick up some more hop notes but still kinda weak. just a biscuit taste with some floral bitterness. stone to me has been slacking for awhile. what happened to their basic ipa with centennial Columbus and chinook hops? it's all new school hipster hops in every ipa they brew now.

It says it's a "red" IPA. To me this means it tastes like a more rough IPA. Tastes like a Torpedo or any other strongly hopped IPA. It has less of a floral range to it and more of a toffee range in the IPA department.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pretty amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is predominately of malts, some hops. Taste is malts, citrus. somewhat bready, light caramel, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a deep amber color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of off white, fairly long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A solid aroma of hops, malt, citrus, and a sugary quality.

T: Tasted of some malt content, a fair amount of malt (not as much as I expected, but still good), citrus (orange), light pine notes, a bit of toffee, and a light bready quality. A pretty well done flavor that's not overly hoppy, but still pretty complex. Quite well-balanced and tasty.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a solidly made, easy to drink amber beer. Worth a look.
