Stone 20th Anniversary Encore Series: 14th Anniversary Emperial IPA | Beer Geek Nation

For our 14th Anniversary Ale, we traced our inspiration to British IPAs of the 1800s, creating an imperial, nay, Emperial IPA using all-British hops, malt and yeast. We even adjusted our Southwest U.S. water to summon that ageless IPA chemistry and royal sense of place. Cheers to an Encore reign for this mighty British-by-way-of-California-West-Coast IPA.

Stone 20th Anniversary Encore Series: 6th Anniversary Porter | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

We celebrated our first five years in business by releasing anniversary India pale ales, with each subsequent IPA brewed to be hoppier and more intense than the previous. For our 6th anniversary in 2002, we extended this concept by making an intensified version of Stone Smoked Porter. We cranked up the malts and hops a notch or three and conditioned it on French and American oak, which accentuated our porter’s distinctive smokiness and amplified its chocolate and roast coffee flavors while also adding subtle notes of toffee, cherries, dried berries and vanilla. We’re proud to give those who missed out—as well as those who didn’t—a fresh shot at experiencing this smoky, dark-as-night wonder. Read More »

Stone 20th Anniversary Citracado IPA | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

For 20 years our passion for brewing and our obsession with hops have challenged traditional styles and expectations for beer. So it’s only fitting we commemorate this momentous occasion by crafting a liquid ode to bold brewing that satisfies your hop thirst and pays homage to our flagship San Diego brewery, located on Citracado Parkway (which itself pays homage to the citrus and avocado agricultural history of the region). “Citracado” also teases the two key ingredients of this beer. “Citra” refers both to the juicy gem of a hop and its citrusy (and tropical) aromas and flavors. “Cado” inspired us to utilize wonderful, native avocado flower honey. Combine the two and the result pours like silk and abounds with enough hops to match our excitement for reaching this 20-year milestone. We thank you sincerely for the years of support and pledge that we will, ... Read More »

Stone Enjoy By 05.30.16 Tangerine IPA | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

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. Read More »

Stone Enjoy By 01.01.16 Imperial Black IPA | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Bottled and consistently delivered faster than any other IPA on the planet to ensure the ultimate in freshness. Stone Enjoy By IPA facilitated a paradigm shift in respect for and enjoyment of hoppy beers. Stone Enjoy By Black IPA is the onyx yin to the freshness-envelope-pushing yang. It similarly rewards hoppy beer enthusiasts with the amazingly in-your-face dankness that only an über focus on now can bring. Cracking open a bottle allows one to experience this beer’s vibrant hop aromas and flavors to their fullest against a perfect symbiotic, complex, and roasty canvas. Stone Enjoy By Black IPA is proof that its never too soon to experience the now; its far better to be early than late with this deep dark wonder! Read More »

Stone Punishment (Hottest Beer Ever?) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

What do you call it when you take a sip of oak barrel aged Double Bastard Ale that’s had the other half of the bounty of chili peppers from Greg’s home garden ceremoniously added in, resulting in a punishingly intense level of hot pepper heat to an already overly intense beer whose elevated alcohol level caused a significant transference of pain-inducing capsicum?” A: “Punishment.” Punishment is 2013 Double Bastard Ale brewed with freshly harvested peppers and aged in bourbon barrels. Brutally hot and unyielding in its imposition, this intensely hellish spawn of Caribbean red hots, fatalis and Moruga scorpion peppers is a just dessert for any spice-taunting masochist who dares to engage it.
