Stone “Encore 08.08.08 Vertical Epic Ale”

      So, it’s almost been 6 years since I started this blog. I really didn’t start getting in to Craft 08.08.08Beer until 2008-ish. So I most certainly missed most of the Vertical Epic series that Stone released every year from 01.01.01 – 12.12.12. I’ve only had 09.09.09 – 12.12.12, and (This is starting to look like a math problem.) I may have even reviewed a couple one of them. Now one has been re-released, and luckily for me it was one I missed out on the first time!
      Stone Brewing 20th Anniversary “Encore 08.08.08 Vertical Epic Ale“. It pours a golden orange color with a small white head. The aroma is full of citrus fruits and piny hops. The taste follows the hoppy, citrusy aroma pretty closely with the addition of a peppery bite. The mouth-feel is medium with sharp carbonation, and the 8.9%abv adds another layer of sweetness. The finish is hoppy and dry. I’m glad Stone chose this from the Vertical Epic Series to do an Encore. Hopefully the will re-release more from the series. Don’t miss this. Here’s to Good Beers!
