Stone Ghost Hammer IPA

Ghost Hammer? What exactly is a ghost hammer? Since putting out their first brew in 1996 San Diego-based Stone Brewing has released hundreds of seasonal, special release, collaboration, and small batch beers. And they have to come up with a name for each one. This latest, crafted for the summer season, is called Ghost Hammer in honor of the midnight knocks and clangs the night crew hears in an otherwise empty brewery.

It’s a light India Pale Ale coming in at 56 on the IBU scale — their standard IPA comes in at 71, whereas something like a Budweiser is a 7 — so the bitterness here is tame but lively. The beer is heavily hopped with Loral, a trademarked breed of hops from Hop Breeding Company that lends a floral, citrus element. And at 6.7% alcohol by volume, it’s not a one and done kind of brew, but still wields a decent hammer. Learn more at Stone Brewing.
