Pours an amber-yellow pretty clear color with an average head and minimal lacing. Aroma hits hard at first and then mellows a bit. Aroma is first of pine resin and grapefruit and then mellows out some. Taste is hoppy with a nice bitterness, some citrus rind and just a touch of sweetness to balance it. Leaves a hoppy-citrus peel aftertaste which is pleasant

A 22 ounce bomber poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance - Bright yellow color. Hazy. Fine, minimal head. Good stickage.

Smell - Lemony scent with a mild whiff of Belgium sour. A beer with a big nose!

Taste - Citrus rinds. Crisp hops. Herbs. Mild Belgium sour note.

Mouth - Tangy. Fizzy. The mouth, like everything else about this beer, is prominent.

Overall - The beer is 2/3 California IPA and 1/3 Belgian sour. The result is one fine ale! Stone is to be commended for combining these diverse elements into one bottle.

In my opinion, this is a near perfect beer that pairs with all kinds of food and drinks well on its own.

The name says it all: Belgian-style IPA. Stone does so many beers so well, especially West Coast IPAs. Match that with Belgian yeast and you've got a whole new take on it.

One of my favorite beers of all-time that also happens to be readily available, and relatively affordable. Can't beat that.
