Yet another 2013 collaboration release from Stone, this is a celebration of the homebrewing spirit; the beer was the winning selection at Stone's Spring 2013 Homebrew Competition. Stone-fruit aromas abound on the nose, with vibrant notes of apricot and peach alongside accents of melon, dried tropical fruit and toasted coconut. The mouthfeel is round and lush, loaded with tropical fruit flavors but balanced by bright orange and ruby-grapefruit hop notes. The finish is long and evolving, ending on a soft nutty accent.
