22oz in pint glass.
A = Clear and crisp, Light amber. Nicely carbonated. Little head. Foam slides down the glass.
S = Floral and sweet citrus, & some hops. Kinda like an IPAish Belgain.
T = Pleasantly malty, then some floral & fruit, ending on a clean hoppy finish. Suprising light for a Stone.
M = Crisp and bubbly but with a satisfingly solid maltiness.
D = The carbonation limits it for me.
Very good beer. I'm usually go for an IPA or stout but I really enjoyed this. Try it if you can get it especially on limited production.
Serving type: on-tap

I was looking for something a bold and different and went with this unique brew.
color:7-9 SRM, a beautiful rich golden color.
Appearance: poured thick like tripple, nice thick head, and slightly effervescent.
Mouthfeel: thick, heavy
Smell: yeasty, hints of orange, lemon.
Taste: yeasty and bread like with lemon and slight citrus notes.
Experience: was stoked at the thought of a Belgian/American IPA hybrid beer. Poured a great golden color and nice long lasting 1 finger head. From the first taste I think Belgian all the way. It's heavy mouthfeel and bready/yeasty flavors soak the palate, only to be cut by a slight lemon citrus finish from those west coast hops.
I expected more of a hop presence, but I'm disappointed in a good way. This beer is descriptively complex and is a must try for hop heads and Belgian lovers alike.
