22nd Anniversary Anni-Matter Double IPA
Stone Brewing: 22nd Anniversary Anni-Matter Double IPA. Each year Stone holds an internal competition pitting pairs of brewers against each other to create the next bestest thing. This year, that beer was created and named by brewers Jason Smith and Jose Flores. 9.1% alcohol. 81 IBU. "The NO HAZE DOUBLE IPA." And while this was bottled on 7/20/18, I drank it only a month later. Hey, I've been busy!
Big aroma with citrus, orange and pine. Terrific from the first sip! Super creamy with terrific orange and tangerine citrus. Tropical pineapple also shows up.
A little spicy with a great pine bite and bitterness. Well balanced overall. Dry at the finish with a hint of alcohol. Fruity and pine flavors linger long after each sip. Very nice!
