More information about Stone Brewing Scorpion Bowl IPA
Taking a cue from a classic of American cocktail culture, the creative brewers at Stone Brewing have brewed a beer that's like an explosion of tropical fruit.
A Scorpion Bowl is a Polynesian drink traditionally served in a large, richly decorated ceramic bowl. Several straws allow the drink to be shared. Typically, the Scorpion Bowl contains rum, brandy and a syrup made from barley, almonds, orange blossom and rose water. Orange and lemon juice give the drink a fruit kick. Because the guys at Stone Brewing prefer beer to cocktails, they developed a recipe inspired by the fruity cocktail. The result is a juicy IPA that delights with a truckload of fruit, crisp bitterness and nice hop notes.
Stone Scorpion Bowl presents in an almost clear sunshine gold in the glass and is topped with a good amount of snow-white foam. An enticing aroma of tropical fruits rises to the nose: juicy pineapple, sweet tangerine, guava, mango, passion fruit and an exotic hint of hibiscus make your mouth water. On the palate, the IPA delivers what it promises olfactorically. Manifold layers of fruit unfurl on the tongue and delight the palate with notes of tangerine, strawberry and blueberry. Fine notes of hoppy herbs and a wonderfully tart bitterness round out the aroma interplay.
