==Introduction==

So, Steve Austin from WWE got together with one of my local breweries to brew a beer… I nearly lost my shit! This was some freaking bad ass news! I know the theme of different celebrities and bands getting together to brew beer such as Will Wheaton on W00tStout or Iron Maiden’s Trooper beer. Hell, even Cyanide & Happiness had a beer. So in the spirit of collaborations with other popular entities other than other breweries, I say keep them coming! Heck I hope one day I get to collaborate with an actual Anime or Manga artist that likes beer. I already make actual Anime themed homebrews and labels. Ofcourse I can’t sell them but my good friends and family seem to love them. Anyways, On with the show and let’s see if this brew is a Stone Cold Stunner!

Aromas:
Super dankness, grapefruit, herbal, floral, piney and grassy hops, tropical notes of mango, passion fruit, honey dew melon, dragon fruit, kiwi, raspberry, prickly pear tunas and biscuit bread.

Flavors:
Dank, herbal, grapefruit, floral, grassy and piney hops, Orange peel, lemon candy, lemon peel, starburst candy, honey dew melon, some tropical notes like dragon fruit, passion fruit, prickly pear tuna, raspberry, kiwi notes, biscuit bread, tangerines, mango hints, strawberry hints and caramel hints.

Aftertaste:
Finishes dry with some lingering herbal and grassy hop notes, tropical fruit hints and grapefruit peel. No alcohol in the taste. Light Straw Body, crisp, clean and refreshing mouthfeel with an easy to moderate drinkability.

Overall:
A very good IPA, and that’s the bottom line! Very refreshing and pretty close to easy to drink. Since Stone Cold helped with this creation, he definitely has good taste and has definitely moved on from the cheap cans he used to guzzle down in wrestling. Certainly a change for the better and definitely something that many IPA lovers will enjoy. This brew was limited to select markets so if you are able to find it before too long, give it a shot. Go find this brew! Cuz, Stone Cold said so!

Anime Corner:
Original characters were used in this pairing to go with the aspect of the Broken Skull from Steve Austin. Back in the WWF/WWE days of late 90’s and early 2000’s, it was the “Attitude” era and the black and red were pretty influential colors in wrestling. With that being said, I was looking for art would that would basically show a skull but was also bad ass. I think with this I was able to find a good pairing for the beer.
