Stone Enjoy By 02.14.17 Chocolate & Coffee IPA

Flirtatiously Fresh

A rich, decadent IPA to fall in love with now

It’s not unusual to see pronouncements of “I Heart Hops,” “I Heart Chocolate” or “I Heart Coffee” throughout #socialmedia, printed on T-shirts and, natch, emblazoned on coffee cups. Over the past couple of decades we have helped add “I Freaking Heart IPAs” to that lexicon. Today, passionate people can’t imagine a world without all of the above. For this special edition, we added chocolate and coffee to make this devastatingly fresh IPA even more seductive to the palate. We humbly suggest that you use this libation to proclaim your love for someone... and we suggest that someone be you. Loving yourself is exactly what this libation is all about. Love now; remember forever.

Tasting Notes

Appearance
Golden with a creamy white head of foam
Aroma
Coffee and chocolate meld with intense dank hoppiness, resin, peaches, and hints of tropical fruit
Taste
Distinctive coffee up front with hints of chocolate lead to an array of hoppiness, dank, tropical and fruit that rounds out with more coffee and chocolate on the finish
Palate
Smooth, hints of warming from the alcohol, and a perfect balance of bitterness and dryness on the back end
Overall
The best of both worlds! A hoppy beer that also has nice coffee and chocolate components. These aroma and flavors blend together nicely to create something unique in the Stone Enjoy By IPA series. Still a hop-lovers dream with the added bonus of a cup of coffee and a bite of chocolate. Perfect to share with someone special leading up to or on Valentine’s Day—or enjoy it for yourself!
