Stone Brewing (Escondido, California) recently announced that it is expanding packaging options for Stone Tangerine Express IPA by now offering this new Year-Round beer in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans.
After being introduced just six months ago as Stone Brewing’s newest Year-Round Core beer, Stone Tangerine Express IPA has made such an impression with fans that the brewery has decided to now make it available in 12 oz. cans. Developed to be “an express ticket to a beach hammock getaway with refreshing drink in hand”, this golden-colored India Pale Ale is brewed with “whole tangerine puree to capture the essence of the bright flavors of the fruit with the addition of whole pineapple for a subtle, yet lingering tropical backnote.” Combine that with a “marked dankness” supplied by eight different hops, and it is no wonder why this brew has been such a hit with hop heads. Now that Stone Tangerine Express IPA has been given its new aluminum digs, Stone Brewing “now offers four of its year-round core beers in cans as well as select special releases.”
“We brew beers we like with hopes that our fans will like them too,” said Dominic Engels, Stone Brewing CEO. “In this case our co-founder Greg Koch had fallen in love with an experimental batch of Stone Tangerine Express IPA and insisted we bring it to market. Turns out our fans have loved it too, so that leaves us with the important task of making this beer as widely available as we can. There’s nothing quite like cracking into one of these cans and drinking in that complex tangerine aroma before the first sip.”
Stone Tangerine Express IPA is available now in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans in California only, but the brewery will eventually expand the roll-out nationally in January 2018. Until then, you can still find Stone Tangerine Express IPA available in 22 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Virginia and throughout the rest of Stone Brewing’s distribution footprint. Prost!
