Evil Genius Beer Company – Stacy’s Mom India Pale Ale – ABV 7.5 percent – IBU 85 – 12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass
Product Description – Stacy’s Mom is our American IPA dry-hopped exclusively with Citra hops. Soft on the palate with extremely low bitterness, this is a great example of a new-school American IPA. Citra hops provide an explosive aroma of tropical fruits, lemon peel, peach and mango, complimented by a clean and slightly toasty malt base. Think you don’t like IPAs? Give Stacy’s Mom a try!
Beer Dads Review
Named after the 2003 hit single by Fountains of Wayne, I couldn’t resist tasting Stacy’s Mom (you know what I mean).
The beer poured into a pint glass with a decent head and a hazy, bright gold color. I was expecting a citrusy and floral aroma but it was surprisingly understated.
For the record, I’m a hop head and I like my IPAs as hoppy as can be. Unfortunately, I found Stacy’s Mom lacking in the hops department. It was far more malty than hoppy to my taste buds.
The beer was also a little lighter than I expected. Although it checks in at 7.5 ABV, it didn’t feel that heavy.
As a bonus, enjoy a Stacy’s Mom India Pale Ale while watching Rachel Hunter in the official Stacy’s Mom music video. You might need a cold beer or two to cool off after watching it!
