Notes / Commercial Description:
With Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA we employ a bit of tropical mythology to pay homage to our ever present gargoyle. Since 1996 he’s had our backs, and yours, by representing an aggressive intolerance for commoditized beer. He constantly inspires us to forge ahead with resolve–even with the omnipresent forces of forceful evil. Vengeful spirits can be awesome when they’re on your side.

Slightly hazy pale orange and covered with a large and rocky tan froth that breaks down slowly.

Aroma consists of pine resin, grapefruit covered w/ sugar, tangerine

This one is light in body and super easy going down but quite tasty with big tangy notes of tangerine and orange orange along with cream, faint pine and other citrus zest.

Cooler beer for warmer weather and ain't nothin' wrong with that.

12oz can with a 1/26/2018 best by date stamp.
This delicious IPA somehow stays very drinkable even with a strong flavor and moderately high bitterness. An excellent fruity-hoppy mix with balance and depth.
Smooth, medium-full body and near medium carbonation.

Pours a cloudy yellow-amber with a half-inch head. Almost looks more like a juice than a beer. Aromas of pineapple, peach, and mango. Taste adds a grapefruit element to the fruitiness and juiciness. Nice balance of sweetness and tang; semi-dry. Medium bodied.

Really liked this beer because I thought it'd go the way of a New England IPA, but it had just enough bitter citrus to become something different.

Light copper to straw yellow with lots of minuscule floaties. There's a three quarter inch head of frothy off white on top. The nose is pineapple forward with some mango and peach in the mix. I'm tasting plenty of pineapple and some faint pear. The mouth is sticky and lightly chewy.

Hazy light amber pour. Dense, but thin, head. Tropical fruits come up from glass, not as prominent as some of the other Stone varieties in this series. Great IPA up front with the fruits coming in a little later. Nice not to be drinking hoppy tropical punch. Solid mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Right down the alley for a solid strike.
