Stone Brewing recently hosted their 5th annual AHA Rally and Homebrew Competition boasting the largest one yet with over 400 people and 30 unique beers on tap. Attendees sampled their way around the interesting varieties with the highest voted beers reviewed by Stone’s expert team of Stone Co-founders Greg Koch and Steve Wagner along with Brewmaster Mitch Steele, Small Batch Brewer Laura Ulrich, and Craft Beer Ambassador “Dr.” Bill Sysak. In the end there can only be one winner, and this years selection is a Coconut IPA brewed by Society of Barley Engineers brethren and collaborators Robert Masterson and Ryan Reschan.
“Expect a brew with such a lusciously sweet, tropical aroma you’ll be challenged to break away from inhaling long enough to take a sip. Soft in tone and texture, it’s an elegant and restrained IPA that harmoniously marries lightly toasted coconut with Citra and Galaxy hops.”
