Stone IPA

Checking in on Google Webmaster Tools is hilarious sometimes. For the last month, it shocked me that "fat pu**y" and "britney spears pu**y" were the top two search queries for my site, at least for impressions. And the one with Britney's name in it was third overall for clickthroughs. Amazing! (BTW, I only starred out pu**y because I am already getting quite a bit of that quality traffic based on that word.)

Digging a little deeper, I see that all of those pervert Spears Hoo-Hoo searchers were finding one of my high-quality postings, the one where I questioned why anyone would listen to the ridiculous antics of celebrities and rock stars. I hope they got what they were looking for. Not surprisingly, there were tons of other similar search terms, too. Very funny!

I was actually writing that post over a beer that Stone Brewing calls the identical twin of the Stone IPA I'll be drinking tonight. I am of course referring to Stone Cali Belgie IPA. Go check out that post. I laughed out loud to myself. Tell me if you did, too. Also tell me if you didn't! Coincidentally, I saw the Cali Belgie back on the shelves at Total Wine today. And you should for sure try that beer--spectacular!

Tonight I'm drinking me a bottle of Stone IPA brewed by Stone Brewing Company in Escondido, California.  I originally reviewed this beer back in February of last year. Wasn't much of a review, so let me try to do better today. "Stone IPA" is painted on the front and back of the bottle. On the front of the label is a gargoyle and on the back is the definition of a gargoyle. Also on the back, Stone modestly calls this a "gem of an IPA". Enjoy by 04.22.10. Whew!

Hoppy, pine aroma, very nice. There is a terrific grapefruit flavor to start, accompanied by lemon and other citrus flavors. Also a very strong pine flavor with some herbal qualities in the background. The bitter bite is great, refreshing, cleansing. Flavorful, for sure on the bitter side but not overly so. Not super complex, yet an awesome beer. Moderate carbonation and a medium body. You finish with some stickiness in your mouth! Yeah, I said it. Wonderfully drinkable!

1. I am still getting at least 5 hits a day from cute bunny search terms. I considered removing the offending alt tag, but then I decided it'd be funnier to replace the bunny picture with a picture of satan.
2. It bugs me that my posts that incidentally mention celebrities always get more views than the ones that are just about beer and running.
3. I LOVE Stone's copywriting. Their newsletter blurb about the Double Bastard had me in stitches. http://cheaperthantherapy.me/2010/01/15/roll-me-to-bed/

If you went back and read that old post, I did put "Britney Spears" and "crotch" in the same sentence, but it wasn't a porno or anything.

Very funny.

I must say that I don't get any odd search terms. I'm a little jealous.

As for the beer I really enjoy this one. I love the big grapefruit like taste in it.

Hey Mike.

I bet it's mostly because you stick to the beer review and don't digress into some of the nonsense you find over here. Although, you did drop a little attitude in that rant a few weeks ago. That could get you some weird ones.

Anyway, yes, this is a great beer to drink with Britney Spears or anyone!
