Stone ReVengeful Spirit, like”drinking a ray of hoppy sunshine”

Stone ReVengeful Spirit Can

In 2017, Stone released Vengeful Spirit IPA with the intention of showing off fruit in what the brewery is best known for – IPAs. Two years later a bolder version of that beer returns.

Stone chose pineapples and Mandarin oranges that compliments the tropical Mosaic, Loral & Mandarina Bavaria hops.

Revengeful Spirit is more aggressive than the 2017 release, in both alcohol by volume, hops and citrus fruit. Consider picking up this bold pre-summer beer. The nose is heavy on oranges, and each sip bursts with trop-hops and pineapple, finishing smooth and slightly bitter. Stone struck a nice balance with real fruit in an imperial IPA without being, cloying, heavy or sticky. It’s like drinking in a ray of hoppy sunshine.

Stone ReVengeful Spirit is available nationally in 12-ounce cans, 22-ounce bottles, and draft.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Mandarin Oranges. Pineapples.)
Hops: Loral, Mandarina Bavaria, Mosaic

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal Release.
Debut: May 2019

Creature Comforts Pineapple & Lemon Tritonia debuts this month

Creature Comforts Pineapple & Lemon Tritonia

Creature Comforts Pineapple & Lemon Tritonia debuts later this month, a new rendition of the brewery’s popular gose. 

Back in 2017, the Athens, Georgia based brewery started releasing the ‘Tritonia’ series in cans, starting with Cucumber & Lime Tritonia. The base tart gose is brewed with coriander and sea salt plus fresh cucumber juice and limes. 

As Christmas approaches, Creature Comforts will add a second Tritonia to the series, this one highlighting crisp pineapple and tart lemons. 

“We’re excited to add another Tritonia version to the roster. The pineapple and lemon additions perfectly complement the base beer creating a tart, refreshing, an overall balanced experience.

David Stein, Head Brewer

Hi-Wire Hop Circus Tropical White IPA opens new year-round IPA series

Hi-Wire Hop Circus Tropical White IPA

Hi-Wire Hop Circus Tropical White IPA will lead off new “Hop Circus”, a year-round series of rotating India pale ales.

The Asheville, North Carolina based brewery has found great success with their Hi-Pitch Mosaic India Pale Ale, as well as their hazy Hazy&Juicy&Hoppy&Fresh series of IPAs. Instead of departing too far from these hoppy successes, Hi-Wire is opting to tack on a rotating series of beer’s most popular style – the India pale ale.

Hi-Wire Hop Circus Tropical White IPA is the inaugural release in this “Hop Circus”, a white (wheat heavy) IPA. The “tropical’ is thanks to mango and pineapple fruit, plus a blast of white grape and citrus from Hallertau Blanc and Citra hops. “With the Hop Circus series, we get to meet in the middle by experimenting in the wide range of IPA styles, but keeping the beer at a more affordable price point,” says brewery co-owner Chris Frosaker.

Tropical White IPA, as well as all the Hop Circus releases, are available in 12-ounce cans and draft across the brewery’s entire distribution footprint.

Style: IPA (White IPA) (w/ Mango. Pineapple.)
Hops: Hallertau Blanc, Citra
Malts: Rolled Oats

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. One-Off Release.
Debut: September 2018
