Stone 16th Anniversary IPA

stone_16th_anniversary_ipa

Stone’s 16th Anniversary IPA is a delicious double IPA brewed with lemon, and what it perhaps my favorite grain, rye.   They’re both noticeable in the nose, through the fluffy meringue like head.  The middle is heavy and sticky and has plenty of sweet to balance the bitter.  The finish is heavy with lemon and offers a lingering bitterness.  Overall, this is a well balanced double IPA that has a nice touch with the addition of rye, but isn’t particularly remarkable.

I give it a 3.9 out of 5.
