Poured from a 1 pint 6oz bottle with a good foamy head.

This is a Belgian twist on Stones' IPA made with Belgian Hops. the beer pours with a good foamy head and has afruity but not too fruity taste with Grapefruit and Pineapple. there is a mildly spicey presence but not too obtrusive.

6.9% ABV but very deceptive while drinking, i felt like knocking back several bottles but unfortunately only had one!

An interesting twist on Stones IPA, very drinkable and worth checking out!

Got it in the 22 oz bottle, and pairing it with a Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 cigar.

Has a pleasant, slightly fruity aroma. Pours well into my pint glass, without too much froth or foaminess. Hops hit you up front when you first sip it, but then they fade very nicely into the background as you continue to sip. As it warms slightly, it gets even better as the aromas and flavors begin to release.

A very nice blend of an IPA and a Belgian.

This is my first Stone beer outside of Arrogant Bastard. It's nice to see they're not a one trick pony.

Really enjoying this brew.

A- Clear yellow with a 3 finger head that sticks around for a while, kinda foamy.
S- Butter biscuit and Sweet smooth malts. There is definitely Belgium yeast in here but its not too obvious. Fresh floral hoppiness.
T- Sweet and malty Belgium yeast. Bitter hops but not really that strong of flavors, Kinda flowery. Buttery biscuit malts
M- Easy to get down, A good all around feel. A fairly wet mouth after feel.
O- Not surprisingly, this is a very good beer and the best of its style that I have tried but Im not crazy about Belgium IPA's. This one is very good and may get again, just not over stones other IPA's.
