Didn't know what to expect from a Belgian IPA with California balls, but I gotta say, this beer kicks ass. It's like drinking a spicy pilsner, but in the style of an IPA. It looked great on tap at Stone, smelt slightly clovey-belgian-y and tasted awesome. Really quite balanced, and actually, when compared to the house IPA at stone, very clean. In fact, the sag you get out of a worn out California yeast compared to this is strikingly noticeable. I'd recommend this to anyone as an interesting beer to try out. Really drinkable too!

Picked this one up from the factory. Split this one with a buddy and I found it to be more pleasant than I was expecting. The mouth feel is smoother than you would expect from stones IPA tag. I like this as much as the Vertical Epic Ale which is a tough comparison for some. Overall this a heck of a beer. A must try for any Stone fan.

A: Pours a golden hue with nice head with minimal lacing throughout...very visually appealing.

S: Smell is amazing with strong citrus and spice notes not to mention the strong hop notes as well.

T: One of the better beers I have sampled as of late. Taste is very citrusy with strong spices throughout every sip. The hop combination with this is something that I haven't experienced before but it one of the best tasting offering you will experience this year in the world of beer.

M: Very mild and easy to swish around and get all the flavors.

D: I could drink this all night. It makes me wish I had bought more at the Greenlife in Asheville. Big ups to Asheville!

Color is orange-gold; the pearl white head is huge with plenty of lacing on the glass. Citrus scents are wonderful, but a bit weak. The taste is an exquisite blend of citrus - tart grapefruit and apple, lemon and orange. There is also a slight clove and banana flavor that is a bit reminiscent of a hefeweizen - this is what makes it different from the standard Stone IPA. Both are absolutely delicious, and among my all-time favorites.
