Stone Viking Space Probe Hazy Double IPA
A hoppy cosmic nebula
Crafted to be enjoyed on earth.
In the spirit of all the exploratory missions deployed across the galaxy — be they spacecraft, Viking or other — we’re constantly probing the world of beer back here on Earth. That quest has brought us to this latest creation, which comes from our brewing team at Stone Brewing – Napa. With a haze reminiscent of some far-off nebula, and further complimented with the juicy flavors of Ella and Citra hops, this beer is most definitely out of this world. Crafted to be enjoyed on Earth, but if intelligent life does exist out there, we’re pretty sure they’ll like it too.
About This Beer
Ella & Citra
A huge mix of tropical fruit, especially pineapple and sweet guava, along with lime zest and a hint of cilantro
Creamy and smooth with some warming on the finish from the higher alcohol content
Dark gold hazy, fluffy white head
Pineapple, peach, lychee, watermelon, papaya and marshmallow
One of the early beers brewed by Steve Gonzalez, Senior Manager of Small Batch Brewing & Innovation for Stone Brewing – Napa. It was received very well in Napa and continues to be a favorite. We knew at some point we would target it for a special national release and in 2020 we found a good spot for it to kick off the year. It’s not your typical hazy DIPA by any means. The use of Ella and Citra hops together, combined with Belgian Candi Sugar for added sweetness, definitely make this beer unique.
