I like Stone brewing a lot. Their IPA is sensational. This is their take on a West Coast Pale Ale, the Ripper. It promises cascade and galaxy hops, which are from here, Australia! I went searching for the promise of grapefruit and passionfruit but unfortunately didn’t happen. I suspect the travel distance doesn’t do a pale any favours. Poured a dark orange with a strong malty front and very resinous hops on the back end, almost IPA like. It’s ok but no ripper unfortunately, I’d love to try this one off the tap state side as I know it would be a very different experience. Oh well, you cant win them all.
