First released in 2017, Stone Ghost Hammer IPA emerges again, its transcendent presence materializing through the Halloween season.

Liberally hopped with Loral, the hop’s name itself is telling of the beer’s unique flavors and aromas. It imparts strong lemony notes and an intense floral aroma. Stone Ghost Hammer IPA is crisp and clean with very balanced and subtle bitterness. Flavors of lemon sorbet, hard candy, spice and herbal undertones make for a truly unique and remarkable IPA.
