Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA

CIMG7958

Happy 17th Stone. This is an interesting brew. It’s got a Pilsner malt profile, with a bunch of interesting German hops, and an American attitude and style. Pilsner malt base with such hops as Herkules, Hersbrucker, Magnum, Merkur, Opal, Smaragd, and Strisselspalt.

Stats:
Imperial India Pale Ale. 9.5% ABV. 102 IBUs. California. Limited Release.

Dark golden color. Nice fluffy head when it’s poured, but it calms down pretty quick.

German hops maybe, but the nose is all American. Heavy hop aroma that’s fairly earthy and floral. Some light fruits show up here, but I’m getting this really great tobacco component.

Mouthfeel is actually pretty light for this kind of beer. Probably a little too easy-drinking.

Interesting flavors on this beer. Earthy and floral with the hops. A little bit less fruit than on the nose. bitterness is there, but decent balance for the style. I’m drinking this beer room temp, and I do get just a bit of alcohol, but you really got to look for it.

This is what Stone does best, and this is no exception. This is a beer to buy. 91 points.
