A friend brought this back from Florida and had it home for quite a time. Enjoy by 5/16/14 so about a month past.

A - Nice hazy golden pour. Two finger pillowy white head. Good carbonation. Wicked lace rings and a finger of retention. Good looking stuff.

S - Bubblegum, fruit, lot's of hops, grass. Belgian yeast is obviously there with pale malt base and a hop note that clearly has faded but is still there.

T - Strong Belgian yeast, grass, honey, pale malt, some spice.. Quite delicious actually.

M - Strong carbonation, medium body, yeasty finish with bubblegum and spice.

O/D - Quite complex and drinkable. I imagine this would be much better fresh, but it's still quite tasty and has a nice mix of the Belgian influence and IPA character. This is one I've been waiting to try for a while and it was the wait. Well done.

This will forever be remembered as the beer I was drinking when the winning USA goal went in against Ghana, so forgive me if I was a bit distracted from how it tasted. Slightly hoppy, but not too much. Some floral notes as well. Some IPAs will beat you over the head, but not this one. Another great Stone offering.

08/22/12 On tap. Part of flight of Stone's stuff, this is the lighter entry at a mere 6.9%. Much lighter mouth feel than the others. I swear as it passed under my nose I caught a hint of Bologna/Bratwurst...I know...I know, but that's what I got.

Research leans toward Belgian yeast & saisson styling and who am I to argue?
