Stone Brewing (Escondido, California) has officially launched Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA as its newest Year-Round release.
Here to prove that you can load a massive amount of juicy fruit goodness into an India Pale Ale “with absolutely no addition of fruit”, the brewers at Stone Brewing gave Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA the power to pack “a mouthwatering fruit punch to the palate” with only the use of floral and citrusy Mosaic, Loral and Mandarina Bavaria hops. “Refreshing but with just the right amount of bitterness”, Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA (7.5% ABV) stays true to its tiki roots thanks to that hop bill supplying “hints of passion fruit, pineapple, tangerine, guava and mango . . . as well as strawberry, blueberry and subtle herbal notes.”
“Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA was initially brewed with the intent to add fruit,” said Jeremy Moynier, Stone Brewing senior innovation brewing manager. “However, once we brewed it, we couldn’t believe the amazing fruit aroma and flavors we’d coaxed from the hops alone. To heck with the fruit!”
Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA is available now in 22 oz. bottles and on draft. You can expect to find this new Year-Round brew at craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Virginia and throughout the rest of Stone Brewing’s nationwide distribution area. Prost!
