Since I’ve been so busy at work, I really fell off doing reviews, so I had about a month that I didn’t have anything scheduled. Work is still crazy, but I’m going to try to do a better job at scheduling posts. So, let’s jump into it.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to beeradvocate.com, “First Release: February 2014 India pale ales harness the inherent flavor characteristics of hops to bring forward familiar flavors of pine, resin, spice, and citrus. In some cases, those botanicals are so potent, they exactly mirror specific edibles. Such is the case with Centennial hops, which hail from the Great Northwest and come across on the palate like a mouthful of citrus fruit. That sensation is amplified with this, the first beer introduced via the Stochasticity Project–a double IPA brewed with Centennial, Chinook and Magnum hops as well as an immense dosing of fresh grapefruit peel. The result is over-the-top bittersweet grapefruit intensity that is at once refreshing and bracing in its citrusy bitterness.”
Random: I like Stone’s rebranding a lot. It makes them stand out more.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated rather rapidly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy yellow with no visible carbonation. The nose was filled with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. It had a note of flowers as well. The taste was filled with intense grapefruit with flowers. It had a moderately thick body with a lot of carbonation. The finish was lengthy and sticky. I enjoyed this one, but all I got was grapefruit juice. I wouldn’t rush back to have this again.
