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

8.1% ABV
