Bottle. Pours a smoggy sunshine color with a small foamy head. Flavor is initially a bit chewy and yeasty, but quickly forms a bouquet of fresh hops with lots of citrus zest. Finish is complex and lingering with hints of spice. Medium bodied, a bit chewy. Nicely done.

Pours a cloudy light haze with a thing. Some interesting notes of yeast and spice through in the nose. Flavor has tastey notes of tangy citrus, a bit of funk. The finish is rather dry and tangy. Overall, very enjoyable.

Bomber....obviously. Pours a resinous gold with not much head. Smell is of spice and barnyard funk. Very sweet flavor....to the point of being cloying. Malty, spices, some grass, and some toast. Finish is smooth and enjoyable, though this was better when it came out than it is now, for sure.

Pours a beautiful gold, with white head. Aroma of hops and sugars. Taste is hoppy with a mix of complex sugars. A Belgian IPA...very interesting. Thumbs up.

@ Alewife for Stone Tap Takeover Tour 2010. Aroma was malty and yeasty at the same time, had notes of barleywine for some reason. The appearance was a golden color with nice whitish head. Taste was notes of malt, sweet Belgian yeast banana notes with hops straight up in your face. The palate was medium with good carbonation. A nice interpretation of the Belgian strong ale style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear gold with a small white head, no real lace or effervescence. Strongly floral hops aroma nicely complements an abbey yeast backdrop and a little caramel. Flavor begins with a variety of fruit flavors, citrus, pineapple, apricot, apple peel, with some ginger-clove spice and heat. Lightly caramelized mid-palate, the grain is a bit husky, a slight flaw, finishing with more pineapple, more bitter here on the finish, lingering floral elements. Spritzy, stimulating palate, medium body, pronounced alcohol warmth.

Nice fruity nose with dancing notes of bananas and cloves intermingling with hints of citrus hops and a lingering spiciness with a touch of yeast. Hops were present in the flavor initially, and then seemed to fade into the background as the fruity esters came through. Alcohol is well-hidden.

Draft @ Stone bistro. Mild hoppy flavor. Sweet taste to it. Would like to try these with some age.
