look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
12oz bottle poured into a tulip.
A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big, fluffy two finger head. It leaves some decent webbed lacing.
S: Lots of pine and citrus aroma from the hops, with some sage and rosemary, little bit of thyme. There's some biscuitiness, grapefruit, lemons, slight banana/plantain aroma and some esters and phenols.
T: Pine, tonic, thyme, some rosemary and sage, grapefruit and limes, Belgian-type sweetness, slight yucca. Tastes like a one-off Stone IPA, definite spiciness to it, but it flows both outright and subtly. There's a hanging bitterness at the end like you'd expect from all three brewers. There's definitely something I can't place though.
M: creamy, not thick, smooth, light carbonation, sweetness up front, spiciness at middle and bitterness at the end.
S:Pretty similar, more medicine smell, some added banana.
T: Sweeter, more subdued hops, more banana/cloves, slight underlying notes of hot chocolate for some reason, some spices show through more while some show less.
M: Creamier than before.
D: Nice on a hot day - refreshing. Bit odd overall, not sure if I could drink too much in a sitting. Warmed up a bit, and with the yeast it gets a good deal better and easier to drink.
