Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Inspired by new experimental German hops, our brewing team is celebrating our 17th Jahrestag by taking palates on an unconventional tour of Deutschland by way of Southern California. In doing so, we used a grain bill comprised exclusively of pilsner malts and German hops with crazy awesome names: Herkules, Hersbrucker, Magnum, Merkur, Opal, Smaragd & Strisselspalt. Dry-hopping with Sterling, a U.S. hop with Saaz parentage, lends a bit of familiarity, but be forewarned, this is a unique beer that takes the IPA–a style we've already pushed far beyond it's previous limits over the years–to interesting new territory.

22 oz bottle poured into an IPA glass. Enjoy by date 10/17. Consumed on 8/30.

A - Golden in color. Clear/no cloudiness. Poured a light head. Distinct lines of carbonation.

S - Very fragrant. Hints of citrus and apricot.

T - Hints of lemon, honey, grapefruit, and pine. Delivers nice alcohol notes and good deal of desirable bitterness.

M - Appropriate carbonation. Clean and crisp.

O - Very nice taste, although pilsner hops were not apparent to me. Another good product by Stone.
