Appearance: Semi-clear golden amber with creamy head of off-white foam. Attractive and detailed lace.

Aroma: Yeasty and fruity. Very Belgian as promised, no doubt from the Belgian yeast used here.

Taste: Bitter, spicy, yeasty, fruity — definitely on the Belgian tip, this hopped-up ale brings a bitter, tangy counterpoint to the complex Belgian yeast content. A solid and faithful collision of classic Belgian and American IPA. Enjoyable, and one I’d enjoy again, no problem.

Pours with very little head. Smells more Belgian than Ipa with some bready and sweet tones to it dont expect any smell of hops in this bad boy. Excellent malty taste with a good clean creamy finish. The hops were ever subtle but added to the overall great tasting experience. Overall a good solid 9 out of 10 Great Brew from the ever astounding Stone Brewing CO. This is a hybrid worth buying!

Served in a tulip glass from a 12oz bottle

A: Light golden, two finger head
S: Yeast forward, little hops and a little caramel
T: Citrus, grapefruit, yeast and little pop of bitterness
M: Slight bite from the carbonation, finishes up with a lot of yeast and hop flavors left on the palate between sips.
O: Very enjoyable take, little beligian and a little IPA that make for a very unique experience.
