Jindia Pale Ale: The Finest DOUBLE IPA

Stone recently brewed Jindia Pale Ale, "The Answer for Boring Beer Fatigue." To create this "lupulinicious liquid," they infused juniper, ginger and lemon and lime peels into their base double IPA. 8.7% alcohol. Bottled On 01/19/17. Enjoy By 05/19/17.

Spicy aroma full of ginger, lemon, a little floral. Nice base beer shows first. Sweet caramel, hoppy bitter answer. Then BLAMO on the ginger! Orange, citrus, a little spicy with some juniper in the background adds some interest.

Love Stone and their creativity. Their IPA is one of my favorites and is always in my house. And some of their other IPA treatments (like that Enjoy By 10.31.16 Tangerine IPA) are fabulous. But Jindia has entirely too much ginger. That heavy handedness overpowered everything else going on in this beer. Not a fan at all, but definitely not boring.
