Stone brew new to Alberta number two, bomber poured into a tulip. Nice looking brew, light bronze amber with a fluffy, resilient off-white head rather like meringue. Leaves nice concentric rings of lace around the glass. Aroma of fresh grapefruit, burlap sack, cloves, a little orange as well, light caramel. Ample rustic Belgian yeast and sturdy citrus and pepper hops. Palate is quite wonderful, one of the better compromises between yeast and hops I've observed in this rather murkily defined style. Impressive resinous green bitterness coupled with grapefruit, lower key orange and pineapple, green banana, medicinal phenols to a surprising degree. Moderate body with some heft and similarly robust carbonation. Finishes intensely bitter and dry, decent pucker power that recalls more citrus rind (lemon with no juice to sweeten things), floral tobacco, herbal tincture and flinty minerals. I am enjoying this brew's bucolic intensity and unapologetic spicy edge. Smooth mouth feel despite these traits. Stone may be old news down south but this ought to make waves up here.
