We’ve often been inspired to brew beers on a theme. In 2007 it was black IPAs. 2008 saw Belgian-influenced IPAs, and more than once it’s been Triple IPAs. It’s been fun to dive deep, and you’ve ridden those waves right along with us. But like you, we also crave new breaks to surf. Right now, it’s tropically-inspired IPAs as represented both by this flavored ale, Stone Tangerine Express IPA and others we’ve got waiting in the wings....With Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA we employ a bit of tropical mythology to pay homage to our ever present gargoyle. Since 1996 he’s had our backs, and yours, by representing an aggressive intolerance for commoditized beer. He constantly inspires us to forge ahead with resolve–even with the omnipresent forces of forceful evil. Vengeful spirits can be awesome when they’re on your side.

Tasting Notes

Appearance
Hazy gold. Fine bubbles and a white head.
Aroma
When you open the can, you immediately get the intense, fruity aroma of this beer—anyone in the same room will! Massive aroma of pineapple with orange, citrus, passion fruit, guava, and also very floral. The aroma is intense and wonderful!
Taste
A medley of tropical fruit juices including pineapple, orange and citrus. There is a hint of malt to support the massive fruitiness that comes from both fresh fruit and hops.
Palate
This beer is super refreshing and smooth. It has a nice medium finish with just the right amount of bitterness coming from the fruit and the hops. The finish lingers just long enough to beg for another taste.
Overall
Another exploration into fresh fruit with a nice array of fruity and floral hops. This is about as refreshing as it gets with just the right amount of malt and bitterness to carry this beer through to another sip, taste, pint, etc.

Pairing Notes

Overall
A massive fruit bomb with nice structure that pairs well with dishes made of fresh ingredients. It especially shines alongside a variety of fresh fish.
