Poured from the tap into a pint glass
A: pours a golden amber with light head and flecks of lacing
S: hoppy pine resin with peach and nectarine rounded off wh spices cloves and anise
T: follows the nose hops are mellowed though comparatively. Peach and pine make a great mix
M: smooth with lingering bitter spiciness make it very refreshing
O: great brew. Belgian twist makes it mellower than the OG Stone IPA maybe I even prefer it!
Serving type: on-tap

A different beer. Don't expect a strongly hopped IPA or you will be disappointed. Don't take me wrong, the hop is definitely there but saves room for the yeast. One can definitely taste a Duvel type yeast. (dry finish and pear like flavor) I really like the Chinook, it gives a really dry type of flavor (similar to the the APA by schlafly, almost like sucking mint leaves: almost hairy in some ways). The dryness of the hop flavor and of the body (the beer is well attenuated) really complements the Duvel yeast well. A different beer but that worked well for me.
Serving type: bottle
