Enjoyed on tap at Freshcraft in Denver.
Pours a slightly hazy pale copper. Thin off-white head with poor retention gives way to meager lacing.
Smells of citrus, grass, orange peel, tobacco, honey and mint. On the weak side, presumably due to the lack of a good head.
Tastes like Stone IPA with a twist. Similar hop profile, but a good deal yeastier, bringing out a bready flavor. Honey, orange, and subtle pine notes are present. Delicious
Great MF. Crisp and clean; sessionable. A great, light bodied beer - awesome for summer. Very resinous; sticks to the teeth for quite some time.
A great twist on Stone's famous American IPA. I will most certainly seek this one out again.
Serving type: on-tap

Golden slightly cloudy with quick dissipating head.
typical west coast ipa smell of citrus and hops but also has just a hint of the belgian yeast maybe even a hint of cloves.
Taste is definitely just like the label says. It tastes just like a regular stone Ipa but with a distinctive belgian flavor.
First comes the fruity california ipa flavors, then a lingering spicy belgian flare.
Over all its not a bad beer I would be interested in tasting this when it is extremely fresh. I also think it tastes better at a slightly warmer temperature like a belgian instead of a ipa temperature.

22 oz bomber poured into chalice.
A - Pours a hazy dark gold with 2 fingers of off white head. Head dissipates somewhat rapidly, and maintains a thin ring around the perimeter for the entire duration of drinking.
S - A lot of grassy hops in the aroma followed by bitter grapefruit.
T - I get a lot more of the Belgian complexity in the taste than I did in the aroma. Grapefruit and grassy hops, characteristic Belgian yeast, a hint of honey, and a bit of herbal spiciness. This is quite dry and bitter.
M - Medium body with high carbonation. The carbonation is quite prickly and there is a definite dry finish to this.
O - An interesting Belgian IPA. Great for the price and great if you want something different from most IPAs, especially with how dry this is.
