Now on Tap: Request IPA
We just tapped a specialty beer that we almost don’t want to tell you about- cause we’re not quite sure we want to share it yet.
Move over Twin Plunge Double IPA, there’s a new sheriff in town.
Request IPA is a brand new beer for us here at Standing Stone and brewer Larry Chase has out done himself. This juicy IPA is a tropical hop bomb. It’s smooth mouthfeel and lingering finish makes it thirst quenching yet extremely difficult to put down. Brewed with Sacchra 50 Carmel Malt and dry hopped with Citra hops, this IPA will cause your taste buds to sing in harmony.
The shining star of this beer, the Citra Hop, originated in the Yakima Valley and has become extremely popular in recent years. The high alpha acid content this hop varietal contains does an excellent job of providing both hop aromas and flavor and has a distinct tropical/citrus fruit characteristic that is both complex and very enjoyable. With such a dual purpose hop, it’s no wonder many brewers have made it a choice ingredient in their Pale Ale/IPA recipes.
We’ve heard many of you hop-heads ask for us to brew a single IPA and guess what, we listened! Send us more of your requests and you never know, it may just be on tap the next time you visit us.
A little about the beer:
Medium bodied IPA with lingering bitterness. Amber in color with a slight haze, pours a thick foamy head. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel with aromas of guava, citrus and passionfruit. Strong flavors of citrus, pine and tropical fruits
