Pine, candy, coriander all in the aroma. Taste of gumball pine and citrus. Very balanced for its complexity. Not a fan of the Belgian IPA but I had to try it cause its Green Flash.

Bomber. Pours orange with a large white head. Aromas of sweaty balls and leafy hops. Taste is semi sweet and bitter. Flavors of Belgian yeast phenols coupled with west coast American hops. Kind of sticky. Pretty decent.

Delicious beer that has a nice light amber pour with a thick head. Hoppy and smooth, but not very alcoholic compared to the ABV.

On draft at B&B Burger & Beer Las Vegas. Pours a clear orange/amber with a head that coats the glass. Aroma is a mix of candy sugar, bubble gum, pine, and resin. Taste is balanced. Starts out with bubble gum and candy digress then moves to resin and pine, then ends with a mix of both for the aftertaste. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. A bit resiny/syrupy in the mouth but still really drinkable. Overall an interesting beer. Bubble gum and resin. Yum!!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange with big white head. Pungent hops aims, citrus, and floral, aroma of Belgian yeast. Initially, this is another green flash hoppy one, but this really really changes as it warns and opens up. Belgian yeast takes a front seat and itís pretty interesting, but not my favourite style.

This beer is great for someone, but not me. Has that weird phenolic belgian strong ale quality with a citrus American hoppiness and bitterness that is just kinda offputting. Well made but not my kind of beer.

"this one attacks the belgian IPA style in a different way than Stone. Where Stone added a yeast strain to an IPA, this starts as a tripple (and from what i can tell a darn good one) and adds a generous amount of big juicy west coast hops. Pine, citrus, yeast, spices and a touch of malt on the nose. Dear Lord this beer is big. The aroma is a good mix of the belian & hoppy characteristics, leaning towards the big hops...til it warms, then itís about 50-50. The flavor of this cloudy orange beer is a frontal assault on the palate. HUGE piney, citrus, and floral hops and a big belgian gumball sweet-spice presence as well. How they got that much flavor and still have a balanced beer, I donít know. The body is medium to full, with a very dry, mouth-puckering lingering finish. Overall, a very good beer, although I prefer the tamer (maybe more sophisticated Stone Cali-Belgique).
