Our latest anniversary beer, starring an all-German cast of malt and hops, is yet one more glorious example of a Stone IPA brewed outside the box. Our brewers have brought their experiments with German hops to fruition, leaving convention behind to create this hefty IPA entirely with pilsner malts. These provide a superbly crisp mouthfeel, while a unique mix of noble and new-school hop varieties adds layers of bright, bitter flavors. Despite the daunting name, this beer isn’t designed to bring about the end of the world, but it just might destroy some of your preconceived notions of what an IPA can be.

    A bright golden colored beer with a big frothy loosely bubbled white head rising above. There's good hang time on the head. It settles into a rich lacing. Light-muted nose. Bold malted sweetness and citric hoppiness well crafted together. Refreshingly light and effervescent.

    Gifted bottle, Wish List beer. Golden yellow pour, tall tight white head, nice lacing. Huge earthy and fruity hops aroma and flavors upfront - Noble hops, pineapple, pine - big and bitter, offset nicely by abundant malt sweetness. This is like a Uber hoppy Monster Pils/IPA hybrid and I love it! Thanks to CascadeCandace for this great Stone beer.

    Sweet. Why'd it have to be sweet. OK, so the lines subject is "snakes" in the movie quote, but it just wouldn't do for this review. This beer is sweet, but it's also hoppy to. A good dose of pine needles on the sniff, a touch spicy, alcohol, but also lots of fruity cocktail syrupyness. I get a lot of tropical fruity character like mango and pineapple on the flavor, some underlying vegetal bitterness like carrots or bell peppers combined with pine sap and wet leaves. Finish is long and enjoyable.

    This is a top notch double IPA. Reminds me of their cali-epique but a little stronger. Sampled their Best By 10-25-13 IPA the week before which didn't seem as good as this one. 17th Anniversary has a semi-cloudy medium yellow/light orange apprearance, with strong pine and bitter hops flavor. Has a near-barleywine feel. Glad that I tried this one.

    A bright gold colored beer with a small head that fades quickly. The aroma is not too aggressive, but unusual in a nice way, notes of sweet malt and spicy herbal hops with some citrus as well. The flavor continues that theme, with very high bitterness and hops that are perhaps more grassy than I first thought. The malt is prominent but not heavy. Very clean, yeast wise. Mouthfeel is fairly full-bodied This is unique and interesting. It tastes more like an Imperial Pilsner than an IPA.

    I think its safe to say that stone can make a stand out ipa. The overuse of hops in everything they do is a bit droll however, its like you already know what it will taste like even before you try it. Good from a consistancy standpoint but lacking imagination.

    Stone has slowly been winning back my attention, and offerings like this are very much worthy of it. Pours a crystal clear golden color producing a huge frothy white head. Tight carbonation, blanketing lacing and the everlasting head make for a grand appearance. Light, smooth and crazy good mouthfeel. Extremely dry for a double IPA. Firm bitterness and amazing hop profiles. A touch of malty biscuit followed by some grassy notes, from here it's all about those beautiful, bountiful European hops. Fruity, mildly spicy, and grassy. A pleasing slow drawn hop punch. Haven't enjoyed a unique offering along these lines since the Imperial Hallertau Pils that Sam Adams used to offer. Wonderful Anniversary offering.

    22 oz bottle, bottled on 7/26/13. Pours clear golden orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

    The aroma is sweet malts, ripe fruits and floral, grassy, slightly resiny hops with some alcohol.

    The flavor is a little sweet fruity toasted malt (slightly soapy) with a big floral, grassy, slightly resiny bitterness in the finish. There are some notes of cream ale. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, an OK DIPA, I think going German was not a wise choice.

    I was a little apprehensive about the all German schtick, but if anyone's earned the right to tinker, it's Stone. Comes across as a delicious and incredibly hoppy yet soft imperial IPA/imperial pilsner hybrid, bringing the best of both into play. Unique yet familiar. Bready, sweet, yet piney and grassy and spicy and weed all rolled into one. Thanks ill have another. I imagine better now, after say September, it'll fade.
