As a huge fan of Stone Brewing, it’s great to see Stone Haze IPA, Stone Brewing’s 4% ABV IPA, hit the core lineup. This means you will be able to get this stuff year-round anywhere Stone is sold.
The beer features “dank aromas of orange peel along with floral notes” and, according to the release:
Citrus flavors of orange and lime are intense up front, followed by oats, pineapple, star fruit and sweet strawberry preserves. It’s pleasantly weighty on the palate thanks to the addition of roasted malts and oats. The finish is dry with the slightest bitterness and just the right tangy tartness to refresh and implore another sip.
“We’re always experimenting with different yeast strains. The one used in this beer produces intense orange citrus notes that complement the intense fruit aromas and flavors of Mosaic and Citra hops,” said brewer Steve Gonzalez.
It’s Friday somewhere, right?
