Had this both on-tap and in the bottle. The tap wins.
A - Clear orange-yellow, good carbonation. Just what I like in my belgian-style IPAs.
S - Orange and grapefruit steeds with hops at the reins.
T - Kinda like the smell, minus horse flavor. Citrus fruits, twangs of lemon with heavier hits from orange and grapefruit. Hops aren't so heavy, but duke rather duke it out with the fruits, and pulls away from the 3 vs 1 as victor. A nice struggle and great flavor profile. Me like. A lot.
M - Clean. Pure. Crisp. Drying, leaving your tongue begging for more.
O - Great stuff here, a fantasic american take on a belgian take on an IPA. Yeah, you read that right. Get a glass.
Serving type: on-tap

More Belgian than IPA, most of the facets of this brew lean towards Belgium. Starts with a funky, yeasty aroma, lightly hazy golden body and small, thin silky head. Taste brings on the yeast again, but the Stone hops come in to bite at the end. Finish reminds me of some French cheese. Interesting!
