Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.90%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is no IPA. This is a San Diego Pale Ale. How did we get here? Easy! Take out the the sweet caramel malt backbone and intense bittering of classic IPAs and replace them with a light biscuity malt profile and intense flavor and aroma hop additions. We then dry hop the bejesus out of it and get it out as fresh as possible. Be careful, this 7.9% ABV beer drinks like a pale ale and thats how we like it in America’s Finest Beer City.

A quintessential San Diego pale ale. Full of hoo flavor form American hops, medium body, high carbonation, and extremely drinkable.

On tap at the Stone Bistro. Poured into a flute glass. Pours a interesting hazy pale caramel amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lot of lacing. Nice aroma of herbal citrus hops, slightly floral. Medium bodied with active carbonation. The aroma promises a herbal hopped IPA and the flavor Is a bit of a surprise, nicely hopped but with a very mild biscuit malt backbone that somehow still presents the hops very nicely. Slightly dry, but flavorful, exhibiting well selected hops. I am usually not a fan of low malt IPAs, but this was very nicely done and I'd get it again in a heartbeat.
