Stone Presents a Blending of Hops & a Blazing Volcano

Trends in craft beer rise and fall, but through the dank, the fruit and the haze, one constant remains: Hops. Spotlighting this wonderful plant, Stone Brewing presents Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA, a beer packed with all the fruitiness of some of today’s favorite beers, with absolutely no addition of fruit.

“Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA was initially brewed with the intent to add fruit,” said Jeremy Moynier, Stone Brewing senior innovation brewing manager. “However, once we brewed it, we couldn’t believe the amazing fruit aroma and flavors we’d coaxed from the hops alone. To heck with the fruit!”

It is certain that this week’s nationwide release may inspire a Tiki escapade. Seven straws and a blazing volcano may be the best way to share a scorpion bowl cocktail, but not this 7.5% ABV island inspiration.

Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA pours deep gold and bright with a thin white head. The aroma is as juicy as its name implies, with hints of passion fruit, pineapple, tangerine, guava and mango. Layer upon layer give this beer its complexity with tropical flavors as well as strawberry, blueberry and subtle herbal notes. It finishes refreshing but with just the right bitterness. Straws not needed…or even welcome.
