Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, California) recently announced that Stone Enjoy By 10.31.16 Tangerine IPA has officially arrived to take care of all of your Halloween libation needs.
To standout from a market that is currently overcrowded with pumpkin-spiced brews, Stone Brewing is taking a different approach by releasing Stone Enjoy By 10.31.16 Tangerine IPA as their Halloween-themed offering. This variation starts with a foundation of the 12 hop varietals found in the regularly released beers from the Stone Enjoy By IPA Series, and then amps up the citrus notes thanks to the addition of “a hefty amount of puréed tangerines.” This treatment creates “upfront aromas of citrus and fruit . . . followed by a nice hop bitterness and hints of alcohol warmth.”
“Nothing is better than our Stone Enjoy By IPAs tasted fresh, right off the bright tank, and we want our fans to be able to share that experience,” said Jeremy Moynier, senior innovation program manager. “Our brewing team is especially proud of this beer. Twelve varietals of hops are perfectly balanced with puréed tangerines to give this beer some serious aroma and flavor. This is a great spin on Stone Enjoy By IPA!”
Stone Enjoy By 10.31.16 Tangerine IPA officially headed out to distribution on September 26th and will be available through the month of October (while supplies last). Look for this one in 22 oz. bombers, 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer retailers in Alabama, Florida and throughout Stone Brewing’s national distribution area. This offering is meant to be consumed fresh, so be sure to finish these bombers off by Halloween. Prost!
