BEER INFO

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

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Kick back and crank it up as we’ve done all the brewing…the we being us and the special guest appearances of two heavy hitters in the indie craft beer industry: New Mexico’s Marble and Colorado’s Odell. Credited with 58 years of brewing chops, our trio built their wheat ale foundation on the classic “C” hops. Then, we rocked a pure hop triad of “M” hops to achieve a supercharged succession of orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, spice and dankness. The undulating riffs of Motueka, Mosaic and Mandarina Bavaria hops slash through the wheat haze with equal footing, never playing over one another. The cacophony of flavor is what fans would expect with a name like Megawheat. So join us as we forge ahead on a path that directly leads to the main stage…and then off the front of it, into the crowd!

If you feel the urge to smash the bottle afterward, don’t. That’s what guitars are for.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a bright amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains piney hops, wheat, citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong burst of piney hops bitterness that is quickly followed by sweetness from flavors of citrus and caramel. The malt character is heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid 2IPA to drink for a long time.

eyes...
2 fingers of craggy white head, the head shrinks back within minutes and remains as an O-ring on the edges of the glass, slightly cloudy orange hue, active bubble-ation (yeah I made that up), decent enough looking thing but not half as cool as the bottle

nose...
citrus-y effervescence, banana bread notes, other tropical tones float on by, like a hefe with more of a back end bite of hops

taste etc...
strangely the carbonation is rather absent from this in the mouth... I really think that would help here if it had that 'fluff' of a good hefe.. but what do I know?
medium mouthfeel, kind of subdued notes all around, this drinks like it sounds in theory, kind of an over hopped wheat with lots of trops hops notes, so like a wheat you get that 'soft' finish but then you get bitterness kind of mixed with that... hmmm ?

verdict?
not for me, I don't like the combinations here, the beer is well executed and has its merits but I am not sure this was a match made in heaven, or california for that matter. the lack of carbonation on the mouth really brought this down for me.

Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip. Cool artwork.

L: Semi-opaque medium golden copper pour. 1.5 fingers of frothy white head. Outstanding lacing.

S: Citrus and sweet tropical fruits... dank and bready.

T/F: Malty and bready... very rich with definite sweetness which largely masks how bitter this beer is. The hop profile strongly tends towards the citrus... grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, and mango. Some grain character... sharp and dank... medium to thick in body, especially for a beer this hoppy. The finish is sweet citrus with some bitter resin.

O: A nice collaboration... a tropical juice bomb and erring slightly on the sweet side perhaps. Pretty delicious though, and criticism feels like nitpicking. In general I really enjoy the Stone collaborations and this was no exception.

L - clear copper color, nice 2-finger head fades slowly to a thin layer

S - whole grain bread, citrus, and that resiny smell so common in Stone IPAs

T - maltier than most, fruity mid-palate, rye bread, piney finish with medium plus bitterness

F - nice small bubbles with medium plus carbonation, slightly oily after the swallow, you can feel the ABV

O - really nice, lots of late hop additions compared to older Stone brews, but I still prefer my local Brooklyn options
