In this special beer blog, we are going to get into limited release beer from Stone Brewery. It is their Sorry Not Sorry Double IPA. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this California base craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this West Coast craft brewery. Let us get into this Double IPA.
It has a clear copper color with a white constant head. The aroma has a citrus to peach notes. The taste of this full body beer has a smooth peach to citrus notes with dry bitter aftertaste. It is a sipping beer but can be a drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.stonebrewing.com):
We make no apologies for the fact that we love brewing bold, flavorful, hop-centric beers. Naturally, we welcomed the opportunity to work with two amazing craft breweries that share our lupulin-fueled dedication: St. Louis-based 4 Hands Brewing Co., known for its innovative IPAs; and Bale Breaker Brewing Co., whose owners’ family has farmed hops in Washington’s Yakima Valley for generations. Since theirs was the first hop farm to commercially grow the beloved Simcoe variety, using that piney, stone fruit-like hop was a must. Puréed peaches upped the fruit factor, while experimental hops HBC 342 and HBC 344 introduced notes of stone fruit, tropical fruit, berries and citrus to this IPA. Yes, we made another IPA. We concede it’s not surprising, but we are who we are: an unapologetic band of hopheads psyched to explore the ever-expanding IPA universe.AVAILABLE IN:LIMITED 22OZ BOTTLES & DRAFT

Closing, I am always interested in what Stone Brewery is up to in world of beer. They are always looking at pushing the limits of craft beer. I will say this beer is no different. It is Peach IPA. Fruit IPA’s are making a run into the beer market of late. It is the new trend now. I believe it will not stop until late in 2017. It is different but really good. I love it. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
