Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Stonefly IPA has been refreshed with the addition of Citra Hops and introduction of a new dry-hopping process we call Alle Zeit Hopfen. A new dry-hopping contraption we custom built called HopfenKubel that we designed to slowly release dry-hops continuously for 48 hours into the fermentation tank. This will allow more surface contact time with the hops and beer fully maximizing the aroma and flavors from the hops. The addition of Citra Hops deliver a spicy, floral, strong citrus and tropical tone of grapefruit, melon, lime, gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee. Stonefly IPA will continue to support the efforts of the Schuylkill Action Network and donate a portion of proceeds to the Berks Watershed Restoration Fund to protect the source waters and health of the Schuylkill River watershed.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a burst of grassy hops bitterness. Then some mildly sweet flavors of citrus and a caramel come in. The malt character is on the thin side and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

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

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent IPA but there plenty of others in the style that I would pick first.

Cloudy, darker gold color. Decent bar poured head which leaves some streaks of lace.

The nose started with cream and weedy smelling hop.

A straight up IPA. The malt begins the taste with a bit of white-bread toast. It lasts until the swallow when the black pepper hop bitterness kicks in. Long lasting aftertaste. High carbonation with a moderate body.

Poured into a pint glass from 12 oz bottle.
Golden orange in color with medium whit head.
Good citrus smell with hints of hops, not over powering of either.
Get a good amount of orange and lemon taste. Might be lacking a little on the finish. Very nice balance and VERY easily drinkablele.

Poured a cloudy orange with a thick foamy white head. Good retention leaves small soapy lacing. The aroma is floral and fruity, with a nice malty bread quality to it. The taste is mostly malt with ajust a non-descript bitter note on the finish. The body is light with a light carbonation.

12 oz bottle. Hazy pale gold, finger white head slowly dissipates leaving plenty if lace. Bready malt aroma with some tropical fruit notes. The up front taste is a malty sweetness with orange citrus. The hops come in late, grapefruit peel and pine, turns to a wood sinless that stay on the palate waaaay after the swallow. Semi dry finish with a medium soft mouthfeel. Overall decent ipa with good balance, hops linger too long for me.
