Pours nicely into a tulip glass with some traces of lace. Color is like bright piny finished furniture. Aroma is quite appealing. Taste is uniquely Beguim, fruity and malty. Its a smooth feel with pleasant aftertaste. Overall, this brew is one to enjoy. Cheers!

Pours clear, golden. Smells like a Belgian ale. Malt taste, citrahop. Creamy finish. More a Belgian than an IPA.

Taste not like a Belgian saison than anything. Mild hop. Presence in the beer.

Had it about 70 days from the best-by date

Appearance: Beautiful golden-amber with a wavy, long-lasting head that settled into a sea of lace.

Smell: Piney hops and Belgian yeast.

Taste: The nose made me brace for massive bitterness, but that never came. Lots of Belgian yeast with moderate bitterness up front, into a bready malt backbone, and finishing with a long-lasting dry, bitter hop aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Moderately thick with low carbonation, giving it a slick feel.

Overall: This was different than what I was expecting. Stone decided not to go overboard with the hops? Either way, all of the components went together well to create flavorful IPA.
