BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
To create a recipe so tropical and fruity without the addition of fruit was no feat our team of brewers would leave up to the gods. They took floral and citrus notes from Mosaic, Loral and Mandarina Bavaria hops to dish up a mouthwatering fruit punch to the palate. Get deserted on your own island or share with others. One thing is for sure: there is no need to light this one. It is already on fire.

This has been in my fridge for a week, but it almost seems like maybe it has taken a slow truck across the country to get to me, as it is not all that big tasting (which isn't a bad thing, it's just that the brewers created some hype which made me expect more).

It pours a perfectly clear golden, with very nice light pancake head that dissipates to lacing and bubbles. The aroma is weak but not bad in any way. Kind of fresh. The taste is somewhat bitter, with a bit of bite. Nothing too over the top, but not exactly easy drinking either. It does have a very pleasant burp (although it's mixing in my stomach - nicely - with food, another beer, and some cannabis edible candies).

Recommended. A good value too.

22 oz bomber 2/10/18 poured into a IPA glass, a clear orange with active bubblization and a three finger rising head. The aroma is floral and bready, not getting much fruit. The taste is again bready and floral/grassy. I get some faint lemon and blueberry, and maybe tangerine notes, more so as it warms. After the huge carb release on the not so aggressive pour, what's left is a light smooth IPA that goes down fast. A touch watery. Overall, an interesting, if tame, IPA for the earthy (f)loral fans. Just don't expect a hop blast.

Copper colored with excellent clarity. There's an inch of densely packed and frothy tan head. This one is a bit vegetal to earthy in aroma. I'm tasting vegetal, earthy, and a touch of grassy hops along with some crackery to marzipan malt. The mouth is resinous, dry, and crisp.

Appearance: light orange in color with a 1/2" head that falls quickly to some large surface bubbles.

Smell: pineapple and mango with some grassy notes are easy to detect.

Taste: caramel, pineapple, mango, lemon zest. and some green grapes. Grass and some mild bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp throughout with some dryness arriving at the finish. Mildly refreshing.

Overall: easy drinking and an interesting take on the mix of hops.
