4 Hands/Bale Breaker/Stone Sorry Not Sorry IPA

Stone is collaborating with two rising stars of American craft brewing who share our passion for the almighty hop. 4 Hands Brewing Co., with its slew of innovative IPAs, was called a “brewery to watch” by DRAFT magazine. Bale Breaker Brewing Co., another acclaimed newcomer, lies in Washington’s Yakima Valley, where the co-owners’ family has farmed high-quality hops for four generations. They were the first to commercially grow Simcoe hops, so leading with that piney, stone fruit-like varietal was a must. But collaborations are about uncharted territory, so puréed peaches were added to up the fruit factor while experimental hops HBC 342 and HBC 344 were selected to introduce notes of berries, citrus, tropical fruit and grassiness to this envelope-pushing IPA.
