Stone Brewing Adds Neverending Haze IPA to Core Lineup

ESCONDIDO, Calif. – Stone Brewing announces the newest year-round beer to join its lineup, Stone Neverending Haze IPA. This low-ABV beer blew away fans in early 2020 with its huge flavor and only 4% ABV.

Stone Neverending Haze IPA is the second success of Stone’s 2020 Pilot Series Program to earn its year-round keep. The Stone Pilot Series features unique and high-potential innovations as special releases for consideration in the core lineup. Stone Buenaveza Salt & Lime Lager was the first to graduate from the 2020 Stone Pilot Series program.

Visibly hazy and golden orange, Stone Neverending Haze IPA lets off dank aromas of orange peel along with floral notes. Citrus flavors of orange and lime are intense up front, followed by oats, pineapple, star fruit and sweet strawberry preserves. It’s pleasantly weighty on the palate thanks to the addition of roasted malts and oats. The finish is dry with the slightest bitterness and just the right tangy tartness to refresh and implore another sip.

For those tripping out on this intensity of flavor at such low ABV, here’s the skinny from Steve Gonzalez, senior manager of small batch brewing & innovation: “We’re always experimenting with different yeast strains. The one used in this beer produces intense orange citrus notes that complement the intense fruit aromas and flavors of Mosaic and Citra hops. This combination really stands out, and thankfully, at 4%, we can go back for more!”

Stone Neverending Haze IPA will be the first of Stone’s year-round beers offered in 16oz four-pack cans. It completed its successful Stone Pilot Series release in early 2020 and is now available nationwide and year-round. May the good times never end.
