Beer Review: Stone Stochasticity Project: Grainiac

So Stone Brewing decided to make a batch of beer using 9
grains and 4 hops and that mix created what is now the known result of
Grainiac. This Red Ale or American Amber is part of their Stochasticity Project
and comes in with an 8.5% ABV and 60 IBU. Let’s see how it goes and read more
about this beer under the commercial description.

Commercial Description:

This hoppy, deep amber-hued beer was created to shine a
light on rare, unexplored grains seldom used in the brewing world. In addition
to barley, wheat, rye and triticale, we added malted millet and malted
buckwheat to bring the total unique grain count to nine. The earthy, nutty
notes of granola found in this experimental multigrain malt bomb are
complemented by the citrusy, piney flavors of four classic American hops. We
dry-hopped the beer with Cascade and Centennial hops at the end, adding more
citrus notes and rounding out the grain bill’s rich, bready character.
