New Beer Blog Stone Brewery Enjoy By Tangerine IPA


image

In this beer blog, we are going to get into another special release from Stone Brewery.  It is their Enjoy By Tangerine 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 IPA.

It has a clear golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a tangerine to juicey citrus notes. The taste has a nice juicey tangerine notes with a nice tangerine aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.stonebrewing.com):

Stone Enjoy By 07.25.16 Tangerine IPA | Stone Brewing

After brewing this intense double IPA with more than 10 different hops and consistently delivering it faster than any bottled IPA on the planet, we decided to do something different with this Stone Enjoy By IPA—we took it to another level, again. Puréed tangerines were added to the batch to create a devastatingly fresh IPA with a tang of tangerine. The flavors yielded by this addition to the recipe meld beautifully with the bitterness of the hops. True to this series, Stone Enjoy By Tangerine IPA is brewed specifically NOT to last, and should be enjoyed within 37 days.

In the end, the year of the fruit beer keeps on rolling.  Here is another fruit IPA.  It is coming from Stone Brewery.  I know this craft brewery never disappoints many of us craft beer drinkers.  I have to say they stepped up and made a better beer than New Belgium Citradelic IPA.  I am not saying it is better but if I had to drink this one.  I have to say Stone.  New Belgium one is a great beer and they make great craft brands.  I just like this one because of the ABV and that leads me to talk about a local one from Frankenmuth Brewery.  It is their Tangerinos IPA.  Just like the Stone, the ABV is around 9%.  Closing, there is nothing wrong with New Belgium along with these two beers.  They are all great beers and this is my thought.  I am getting more favor from Stone and Frankenmuth.  I highly recommend all these beers.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Stone Sorry Not Sorry Imperial IPA

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/

Cheers!

Stone Brewery IPA New Blog


While in Vegas, we are going to try another beer from the Stone Brewery and it is one of their flagship beers called India Pale Ale.  If you read my earlier blog on their other beer then you know about this brewery, let us get into the beer.

This India Pale Ale is copper with a constant head on it.   It has a heavy citrus smell to it. The taste of this beer is a sweet carbonation citrus kicking throughout the beer experience.  This beer is a very drinkable beer for being India Pale Ale.  I was stun to fine this beer on tap at a resturant on the Vegas Strip.

Here is a descripation from their website (www.stonebrew.com):

An “India Pale Ale” by definition is highly hopped and high in alcohol – you’ll find our Stone India Pale Ale to be true to style with a huge hop aroma, flavor and bitterness throughout. If you’re a hop-head like us, then you’ll love our Stone India Pale Ale! Medium malt character with a heavy dose of over the top hops! Generous “dry hopping” gives this beer its abundant hop aroma and crisp hop flavor

Last craft beer in Vegas,  this beer is very well made and has put mark on India Pale Ales in craft world.  I really enjoy drinking this beer but the one problem I have with this beer.  I believe this beer is very over price in the six pack bottles.  I cannot remember what I paid at this bar but I rarely see it on draft here in Chicago area.  I do buy it here and there but I do not put it in my regular lineup because of the cost.  Go get some!  Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
