Beer God’s Notes
I hit the big leagues today. I had to have my @untappd #2500 unique be a Stone IPA – they opened my eyes to great tasting beer a few years ago and I never looked back.
This beer is incredibly well balanced. Stone beers aren’t known for being super balanced (they’re usually pretty hop-forward, which I love). But, the balance in this makes it really easy drinking.
Anyway, cheers and thank you to everyone that I’ve met along the way. I hope to meet many more of you.
Cheers to 2500 more!
STONE 20TH ANNIVERSARY CITRACADO IPA
A MILESTONE DOUBLE IPA BREWED WITH CITRA HOPS & AVOCADO FLOWER HONEY
FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD
For 20 years our passion for brewing and our obsession with hops have challenged traditional styles and expectations for beer. So it’s only fitting we commemorate this momentous occasion by crafting a liquid ode to bold brewing that satisfies your hop thirst and pays homage to our flagship San Diego brewery, located on Citracado Parkway (which itself pays homage to the citrus and avocado agricultural history of the region).
“Citracado” also teases the two key ingredients of this beer. “Citra” refers both to the juicy gem of a hop and its citrusy (and tropical) aromas and flavors. “Cado” inspired us to utilize wonderful, native avocado flower honey. Combine the two and the result pours like silk and abounds with enough hops to match our excitement for reaching this 20-year milestone. We thank you sincerely for the years of support and pledge that we will, as always, strive to live up to the reasons for your loyalty!
