Give Me IPA Or Give Me Death – Stone Brewing

So, I had to try this… you know, because IPA.  This one clocks in at a solid 8% ABV with 75 IBUs.  This has a great flavor. The hops character is on the floral side of things.  Apparently, this is brewed with raspberries and blackberries (according to the bartender), but I personally don’t get the fruit notes to it.  There is a nice balance to it, so it’s not “punch-you-right-in-the-face” hoppy.  Maybe the sweetness from the fruit balances that out a little bit, but that’s speculation.  

This brew is definitely worth at least checking out.
