The smell gets better as it warms: more Stone IPA-like and less yeasty. It's a unique taste but I prefer Stone's more traditional beers.

Appearance: Poured a clear light golden yellow color, with a big fluffy white head. Very nice retention and lacing.
Smell: Some nice citrus and spicy aromas, with some back notes of bubblegum sweetness.
Taste: Pretty close to the smell, with nice citrus and spicy belgian yeasty flavors.
Mouthfeel: fairly light bodied, slightly dry finish, quite nice.
Overall: Great addition to Stone's 12-pack, very nice IPA hoppiness and spicy yeast belgian flavors, good combination. I like this beer a lot.

Pours a light tangerine color with a two finger rocky white head. Aroma is yeast, bubblegum, and spice. Taste is balanced with mild hops, yeasty spice, faint bubblegum, and a bit of a bready or biscuity quality. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall a nice twist on the regular stone ipa, worth checking out for fans of ipa's and belgians.

3.79/5  rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Light golden yellow with a huge head of foam and good lacing. Lots of visible carbonation.

Smell: Yeast and fruit.

Taste: Citrus, yeast, fruit, spice.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, moderate hop bitterness in the finish.

The Verdict: Pretty good. Well balanced between a yeasty Belgian brew and an IPA, it's missing the usual Stone hop bitterness overload. Nice brew for an occasional something different.

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.
