Come in and enjoy the Stone 17th Anniversary IPA, a very hard to find draft beer that is sure to go quickly. Starring an all-German cast of malt and hops, it is yet one more glorious example of a Stone IPA brewed outside the box. Stone’s Brewers have brought their experiments with German hops to fruition, leaving convention behind to create this hefty IPA entirely with pilsner malts. These provide a superbly crisp mouthfeel, while a unique mix of noble and new-school hop varieties adds layers of bright, bitter flavors. Despite the daunting name, this beer isn’t designed to bring about the end of the world, but it just might destroy some of your preconceived notions of what an IPA can be.
This full bodied milk stout delicately balances roasty flavors from the grain bill with subtle sweetness from the lactose addition. Pom Pom teases with a nose of dark chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, raisinettes, and subtle vanilla beans leading into a balanced palate of chocolate milk, hazelnut, with roasty flavors and moderate sweetness.
