Stone Go To IPA

Stone Go To IPA

NAME: Stone Go To IPA
TYPE: Session IPA
ORIGIN: Escondido, CA
ABV: 4.5%
REVIEW: Light golden honey color, fresh hoppy grapefruit and lemon zest smell, thick, foamy head, nice fruity taste, white grapefruit and tangerine. Light body, but the bitter finish still packs a punch. I think I could get used to this session IPA thing. What do you guys think btw… Is the session IPA here to stay or just a passing fad?

Stone Enjoy By 2.14.14

20140228-220907.jpg

NAME: Stone Enjoy By 2.14.14.
TYPE: American Double IPA
ORIGIN: Escondido, CA
ABV: 9.4%
REVIEW: Golden color, foamy head, lots of fruit on the nose. Definitely smelling some pineapple and mango in there. Sweet, refreshing, very fruity IPA with a nice bitter finish. Methinks it would be a great summer IPA. Too bad it’s still the dead of winter. Oh and don’t worry, this photo was from a couple weeks ago, I enjoyed it well before 2/14/14.

Green Flash Imperial IPA

NAME: Green flash Imperial IPA
TYPE: Imperial IPA
ORIGIN: San Diego, CA
ABV: 9.4% ABV
REVIEW: Light amber color, rich crisp pine on the nose, very fruity IPA with hint of peach and a sticky, bitter aftertaste. A little fuller mouthfeel but not too heavy. A nice spring beer, wouldn’t mind having this with some good BBQ, I think I prefer their traditional West Coast IPA though.
