Stone Enjoy By 07.25.16 Tangerine IPA

Stone Enjoy By 07.25.16 Tangerine IPA

Tangibly Fresh

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.

Appearance
Golden with creamy white foam.
Aroma
Orange citrus aromatics followed by peach and other fruits.
Taste
Hoppy and very fruity, with a tangerine kick on the finish – It’s found in both the flavor and the aroma.
Palate
Dry, hints of alcohol warmth and a nice bitterness on the back end.
Overall
Although still very similar to our classic version of Stone Enjoy By IPA (it is the same recipe, after all), the tangerine adds a more intense citrus element to the beer. We first made this variation in 2015 as a very small batch and loved it so much that we had to find a date for it in 2016.
