As a rookie double IPA joins a Hall of Fame lineup.

Hopping up for March Madness, Stone Brewing has announced a brand new player to its lineup. While rabid fans of basketball will soon gather to make predictions about who their big winner will be, craft beer fanatics will hoist a pint as Stone Doublicious Double IPA takes to our court along with Stone’s all-star lineup of IPAs, including:

  • The Aptly Named: Stone Delicious IPA
  • The Tropically Inspired: Stone Tangerine Express IPA
  • The Hop Mosh Pit: Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0

  • The Heavy Metal-themed Collaboration: Marble / Odell / Stone Megawheat Double IPA
  • The Iconic: Stone IPA

…all delivering fanatics more than enough amazing IPA choices this March to create a fantasy team.

Then, making its debut this March is the draft-only Stone Doublicious Double IPA, a more aggressive double dry-hopped version of Stone Delicious IPA, with an amped-up ABV. Loyal fans will recognize hints of citrus, herbs, lemon candy, melon, and fresh-cut grass. The flavors of kumquat, peach and lemon culminate in what tastes like a hard piece of “Hop Candy.” Overall balanced bitterness and sweetness make this highly drinkable beer a round-the-back-through-the-legs-reverse-slam-dunk.

“Stone Delicious IPA is a beer we really love,” said Jeremy Moynier, Senior Innovation Brewing Manager. “El Dorado and Lemondrop were two hops we embraced early on and were blown away by the intense flavors and aromas we got when using these hops together. Last year we started to toss the idea around of making an even bigger version of Delicious. When we tried Stone Doublicious Double IPA for the first time off of the tank, we knew we had a winner!”

A playful series of events to celebrate Stone IPA Madness and engage with fans will be taking place at several Stone Brewing locations as well as select accounts across the nation during the month of March. The kickoff event, Stone IPA Madness – Festival of Hops, will take place from 11am-5pm on Saturday, March 5th, at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Escondido.
