Stone Brewing Co.’s latest IPA might seem a bit familiar to long time fans.
That is because the Escondido, Calif.-based brewery is releasing Grapefruit Slam IPA, an 8 percent ABV double IPA brewed with grapefruit peel as well as Centennial, Chinook and Magnum hops. The double IPA was released as a draft-only option in 2014, but this is the first time it has been packaged.
“We’ve made a hell of a lot of beers since 1996,” reads a post on Stone’s website. “Occasionally stars, planets and brewing schedules align and we bring back one of these ephemeral creations. In fall of 2014 we created a draft-only version of this delicious double India pale ale. We never stopped thinking about it, so a long five years later, we’re bringing back Stone Grapefruit Slam IPA for round two.”
According to Stone, Grapefruit Slam IPA is packaged in 22-ounce bottles as well as six-packs of 12-ounce cans that are being released at retailers nationwide today.
