Pours a very attractive hazy gold color with a moderate head that dissipates rather quickly. Tiny bit of sediment floating around. Smells fruity and hoppy, the yeast adds a pleasant note. Taste is impressive, a very flavorful mix of sweet fruit, citrus, and rather bold hoppyness. It is also slightly grassy, and the sweet aspect falls off in the finish to leave a satisfying bite. Medium body, active carbonation. A very pleasant, enjoyable spin on an IPA. I'll probably pick up another bottle in the near future.

Stone IPA + Belgian yeast = Awesomeness. Moderately hazy, golden with foamy white head. Nice lacing that stays put. Bready aromas, slight fruitiness. A nice mellow hopiness flavor with that subtle hint of banana bread from the yeast. Pulls together nicely. Lightly carbonated with subtle stickiness that works.

I know this beer is rated well but it's not for me. I need more of the classic american ipa flavors. Too much "European" influence for my taste. Sorry Stone, but this is the first one of your beers that I will not be trying again.
