Stone 16th Anniversary IPA


I’m guessing you’ve never had an imperial IPA quite like this before; neither had I until I cracked open a bottle. Stone’s 16th Anniversary IPA is a fantastic showcase of how a brewer can lean toward non-traditional ingredients (in this case, lemon verbena and lemon oil) to further accentuate the natural brightness of hops. This brew bursts with lemon, tropical fruit, spicy alcohol warmth (10% ABV) and the kind of bitterness you’d expect from a Stone IPA. It’s out now in limited quantities, so don’t miss out.
