Stone Fear. Movie. Lions Double IPA
Style: Imperial/Double IPA
Format: 470ml Can
New England-style IPAs are all the rage. Fans of Stone repeatedly ask for our take on the style, which can be met with some criticism. Rooted in West-Coast style IPAs for decades, how would we do it? Fear no more. Our brewers took the approach to deliver incredibly hoppy and aromatic flavour while keeping it very balanced, and upping the alcohol unnoticeable - nailing this astounding one-of-a-kind creation.
Overall, this unfiltered double IPA is juiced up with massive Loral & Mosaic tropical & citrus notes. The mild bitterness and relatively dry body compliment the style, and the residual maltiness nicely rounds it out. Lingering lime peel and tropical fruit derived from the hops stand out on the finish, begging one to seek out more.
