pours golden orange with a small but dense stark white head. aroma is fantastic... fruity hops, some sweet yeast and grass, with a bit of caramel malt on the back end. flavor is overwhelmed by the Belgian hops but has a much smoother finish. Good beer.

The color of this brew is a hazy golden color with a large white head, and the aroma harmoniously blends Belgian yeast with floral and resin hops. The taste is slightly sweet and mildly bitter, and the palate combines an average carbonation, slick texture, medium body, and a bitter finish. This beer is overall a really nicely balanced beer that leaves me impressed with how the hops take a backseat here.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Bottle from Kris Wines. Mid amber colour, bright, didnít generate much head. I do like a good hoppy Belgian beer. This one has a curiously sweet body, with some fruity estery quality, maybe peach. Yeasty but slightly light in body somehow. Finish is bitter, hint of pine, hoppy. Tasty!

Lighter than the typical IPA, slightly hazy, and solid relatively creamy head. Drinks like a lighter, citrus IPA, with some good yeast notes as well. Mouthfeel is light with strong carbonation, and finish is slightly bitter. Itís a good mix, really enjoyable.

Hazy amber pour with an off-white head. Fruity hop aromas of citrus peel and some floral notes. Nice yeast aromas too. It smells like hoppy dough almost. Flavor is similar and very well balanced. Interesting concept and pretty tasty.

FROM NOTES: June 28, í12
From a 22 ounce bomber into a Stone pint glass.
A: An ultra-sharp yeast aroma right up front, like fresh dough. I donít get much IPA aroma, but I do pick up woody and earthy tomes.
A: Pours a dark golden-yellow color, clean and carbonated with a fluffy, white 1" head that settles a bit but leaves outstanding lacing.
T: Mild citrus notes to start and the Belgian Ale kicks in for a strong/powerful finish. A yeasty dance of flavors.
P: Full body and lively carbonation.
O: The Belgian yeast overpowers everything and dominates the IPA. This is an aggressive and ambitious effort and has that Stone signature, but for me, once in a lifetime was PLENTY.

Distinctive aroma of floral citrus and spicy yeast. Almost clear yellow orange, tones of liveliness abounds. Funky farmhouse tire taste that competes, with moderate success, against the signature bitterness that encompasses Stone Brewing. Sharp initial palate feel, but this mellows out pretty quick. Good beer that is unique even as every new style-twist is covered ad nauseum by a hundred or so extreme brewers.
