One of California’s most well-known breweries may truly be embracing hazy India pale ales. At the end of the day, IPA is really what put them on the map. Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA debuts in cans nationally later this month.
An unfiltered IPA already intermittently exists in the brewery’s lineup, part of theEnjoy By IPA series. In the near future, Stone is releasing Nor’East Nod Double IPA, a hat tip to hazy, juicy “New England-style IPA”,
Now another unfiltered, juice-forward IPA is joining the brewery’s Stone’s lineup – Vengeful Spirit IPA. This hazy IPA will be bringing the juice, in the form of pineapple and Mandarin oranges.
We’ve often been inspired to brew beers on a theme. In 2007 it was black IPAs. 2008 saw Belgian influenced IPAs, and more than once it’s been Triple IPAs. It’s been fun to dive deep, and you’ve ridden those waves right along with us. But like you, we’ve also crave new breaks to surf. Right now, it’s tropically-inspired IPA’s as represented both by this flavored ale, Stone Tangerine Express IPA and others we’ve got waiting in the wings…. With Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA we employ a bit of tropical mythology to pay homage to our ever present gargoyle. Since 1996 he’s had our back, and yours, by representing an aggressive intolerance for commoditized beer. He constantly inspires us to forge ahead with resolve-even with the omnipresent forces of forceful evil. Vengeful spirits can be awesome when they are on your side.
Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft in late September 2017.
