#stonebrewingco is my first guest beer on this blog! Stone does about seven Enjoy By IPAs a year and this one happens to be their Christmas IPA, so I couldn’t resist. These brews are small batch and are meant to be drank by, you guessed it, the date printed on the bottle! This one was bottled on 11.19.15, and couldn’t wait for Christmas to enjoy it! I haven’t had too many from Stone, but this definitely has me wanting to check out the other brews they offer.
This double IPA has a combination of a dozen hops which offers a very intense and expansive hoppy taste. On top of the hops, I experienced those peach notes and many other fruits, which helped balance out those twelve hops and give it a night balance. With the combo of hops it’s also dry hopped! Which is a beer I’m becoming more fond of. Definitely grab this beer before the best by date! Totally worth a 22, and you don’t even have to share! Cheers xx
