Stone Brewing (Escondido, California) has announced that it is officially launching its Hop Worship Seasonal IPA Series with the release of Stone Exalted IPA.
In an act of continued devotion to the divinity of hops, Stone Brewing has established the Hop Worship Series as a lineup of seasonally released India Pale Ales that challenges “Stone’s zealous brewers . . . to take their passion for hops to the next level.” Emerging as the first offering from this new series, Stone Exalted IPA (7% ABV, 55 IBUs) has been bestowed with the “divine qualities of Loral and Citra hops [to give] this beer beautiful aromas of fresh citrus, elegant floral notes and mild grain and wheat characteristics.” These ambrosial aromas carry over into the flavor with notes of lemon and lime that are “accented by Thai basil and a big floral component, resulting in a beer that is crisp with lingering citrus flavors and bitterness.”
“Our brewing team really knows a thing or two about their hops. Stone Exalted IPA is an exemplary display of their ability to create entirely new flavor profiles with the careful execution of hop blending. I certainly find myself on higher ground thanks to their incredible work.”
– Greg Koch, Stone Brewing Executive Chairman & co-founder
Stone Exalted IPA is officially available now and has plans to hang around through May. You can expect to find this new Seasonal offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Virginia and throughout the rest of Stone Brewing’s nationwide distribution footprint. Prost!
