You may recall the herbaceous, bitingly hoppy fund-raising IPA Stone Brewing Co. brewed four years ago to help provide relief for Japanese earthquake and tsunami victims. It was originally brewed Baird/Ishii/Stone Japanese Green Tea IPA with Toshi Ishii, owner of Ishii Brewing Co. in Guam, and Bryan Baird of Japan’s Baird Brewing Company. Well, it’s back with the original crew on board. The recipe has been updated slightly, using a new Australian hop variety, Helga, in place of 2011’s New Zealand Pacifica hops, but the 2015 version is still packed with all of the unique flavor combinations from the previous batch.
This spectacular, tea-infused IPA will set sail beginning Monday, January 12. You can prepare for its arrival by reading up on the tasty details on the official webpage. Check the Stone Beer Finder for help finding Baird/Ishii/Stone Japanese Green Tea IPA at a retailer or bar near you.
