4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big Witbier aroma. Kind of overpowers the IPA citrus aroma. I do get a little bit of the cirrus aroma at the end. I would consider this more of a witbier than an IPA. The finishing citrus hops compliments this beer wonderfully.

Love the bazooka joe bubble gum aroma, then you pour a pint of pure golden goodness. And get a fruity, hoppy drink of this IPA. Love this beer!!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle in a Stone variety pack.
Normally I wouldnít get a Belgian IPA because I donít like them.
Aroma - definitely can smell the Belgian yeast in this...not horrible just not my thing.
Appearance - Super clear yellow-ish color.
Taste - Is it a Belgian - Yes. Do I like that style - No. Donít care for the style, but Stone does a good job of it.
Overall - not my style...wonít see out again...just donít like Belgian beers...Nobodyís fault but mine.

A definitive yes on the bubblegum smell alluded to by the label. Smells like bazooka Joe, bubbleyum. Sweetness on the nose like your grandma's electric blanket. Great balance on the tongue. This is the best of both worlds. Could smell more complex, but the flavor makes you forget. Attenuation for days, great carbonation pop. Flocculate me timbers

Iíve always felt like a didnít like belgian beers, turns out I just donít like belgian yeasts.... I dunno maybe Iím undignified in my tastes, but yeah.... I donít really care. I do not like this one bit. Iím going to choke down this glass and store the other one to give to someone who comes over with more class than they have taste... I only hope that they like fancy foreign things more than they like delicious flavor.

Ive always disliked Belgian beers but felt bad because I didnít know why. Now I know why. Stone makes great beers and great ipas, so what happens when you take their IPA and add Belgian yeast? You want to through up... Its pretty gross and now I know why I donít like Belgian beers... Their yeast is pretty bad...
