Stone IPA

I’ve had this before, but never made an official review. Reviewed here on 7/8/2020, bottled on 6/3/2020, so still fresh.

Notable aroma of hop bitterness and malt. Crisp bite of hop bitterness, decent malt flavor without caramel sweetness. Lingering hop bitterness that is notable but not overpowering. But still don’t venture here unless you definitely like hop bitterness!

4.5 out of 5 stars.

Great aromas like sniffing a bag of hops. You can even get the aroma while holding the glass a good 6-8 inches from your nose. Phenomenal. Nice sweet hop bite that’s very flavorful and not bitter. A good chunk of caramel malt sweetness rushes in for attention, but generally gets pummeled back by hops flavor. Notable, but not overpowering hop flavor in the aftertaste that lingers a long time. Great beer, but I don’t think my taste buds could handle the onslaught of more than one.   

4.5 out of 5 stars.

Strong sweet hop aroma, very succulent. Initial flavor has hop bite, then quickly changes to a mixed hop bouquet of flavors. Backed up by a hearty malt backing, but left with a hop bitterness than lingers. Very powerful flavors going on here, but excellently balanced and doesn’t give me any hints of its massive ABV.

4.5 out of 5 Stars.
