On tap at Vine and Barley. I usually really like Stone’s beer, but this one sucked.

Not sure what I was expecting with this. I was pleasantly surprised. Thanx DK. Poured into a St. Bernadus Goblet, clear Honey colored pour with a foamy ivory head that leaves significant lacing on the inside of the glass. The nose is...interesting, earthy, some Belgian yeast character, spicy hops, Grapefruit rind. Nice bitter sweet flavors, a hint of belgian yeast, caramel, grapefruit and pine. Fruity bitter finish. Active carbonation. Delicious beer. Drinks very well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is citrus hops with a hops backbone and some sweet cotton candy that fits nicely in the background. Looks slightly hazy with a golden tint. Taste is somewhat confusing. I get the spice nots of a belgian ale with some citrus and bitter hops breaking through. Finally finishes with a nice aftertaste. Just what you expect from Stone.

Enjoyed with Pat from Capone’s. Pour is a clear copper, Head lasted and laced well in the final pour glass. Aroma is a sweetr mix of maple and vanilla pancakes. Flavor is nice mix of hops and vanilla leaf. Palate give hints of flavor throughout the tongue. Something interesting that i can’t name. Nice brew.

Its an IPA, its a Belgian beer, maybe a dubbel, its both! Plus its ridiculously strong. It has a great aroma of a sweet Belgian and some slight hoppiness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours yellow with a slight brown tint and a thick white head that quickly fades into nothingness. Very solid carbonation and nice lacing. Aroma is of flowers, hops, pine needles, and a slight orange tinge. Taste is quite mellow and leaves a lingering aftertaste of pine and citrus. Very warming and very good.

The traditionalist in me has a hard time putting west coast hopping schedules and the belgian ale yeast characters together well...this is the best example I’ve had yet. Another good beer in the "experimental" styles stone is show casing currently.
