In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from the Stone Brewery. The beer is a limited and rare release 22oz bottles. It is an unique Double India Pale Ale. The name of the beer is when the beer goes out of code. If you read my earlier beer blog on their Flagship beer, which is IPA, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read that beer blog post. Let us get into this beer.
This special Double India Pale Ale has a clear semi dark golden color with a constant white head. The smell is is a heavy piney but a touch of a tropical fruit. There is a ton going on in the smell. The taste is a piney but a dry hoppy tropical fruit. It is drinkable beer but careful drinking it.
Here is description from the beer bottle:
You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. Freshness is a key component of many beers – especially big, hoppy IPAs – but we’ve taken it further, a lot further, with this one. We brewed this IPA specifically NOT to last. We’ve gone to extensive lengths to ensure you get your hands on this beer within an extraordinarily short window, and we’ve sent a very clear message in the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right NOW to enjoy this IPA!
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Ending, this beer lives up to what it is which is “Live For The Now, The Present.” Stone Brewing is a doing good thing and making a statement in the Craft Beer World. I believe all brewers are looking for fresh product in the market. However, this is a solid beer, it is a big hoppy beer that has a nice and solid malty backbone. I love how they use social media to show where people are enjoying this beer. This will start a trend but it has to have a great beer behind it. This beer is an awesome beer and I am glad I had it. I will looking for more before the date comes to head. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
