Light honey in color. An ok cream colored head. Has a good body and seems to hold well enough.

American citrus grape fruit hopes mixed with Belgium yeast. The end result is a fruity assault on the nose that then finishes with a touch of spice. So expect orange, lemon, bubble gym, clove, and other spices in this one

This beer is a touch past the best by date but with stone this happens so often I find it hard to demand the freshest beers. Anything fresher than 6 months I'll accept unless it's Ruination since that's just awful "aged." As a result the hops are not dominating this beer like they should and I believe normally do. The end result is bitter but not hop flavored belgium spice. It doesn't work that well. Sadly this doesn't stand up to the 08 vertical epic even aged. I have to give stone credit for what they're doing here, but the malt profile just wasn't done well enough.

Medium body with a clear alcohol presence. A touch heavy imo.

I can't see drinking too many of these either. It's just too thick and the taste is enjoyable but nothing to force you back to the glass for another sip over and over again.

this one was just ok for me. im starting to get into the belgian ipa thing but lagunitas little sumpin wild is alot better. maybe this bottle little old the hops are not the usual stone in your face, the bubblegum flavor not as tasty here, too refined. pass on this one.
