What I’m Drinking Deux

Good lord, I hate session IPAs.

IPAs have a tendency to need a high alcohol content. Well, at least for me to enjoy it. I like my Pales to have a hoppy bite, so a high IBU is enjoyable.

Unfortunately, three good IPAs can lay me on my ass.

So now Stone goes and makes this.

Needless to say, I was a little leery. I have never had a session IPA that hasn’t tasted like rank garbage water. Could Stone change the trend?

Yes…yes they did.

By all means, this IPA ain’t toppling my top ten, but it’s fantastic – and check this out:

Alcohol: 4.5%
IBU: 65

65 IBU! It’s got quite a bit of that hop bite I like. Nice faint citrus too. I’m 100% impressed.

Kudos, Stone.
