Similar to clove, it smells and, the taste Belgian yeast. It's very fascinating compared with Stone IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours mostly clear golden amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits, floral notes, cereal and toasted malts, Belgian yeast notes, and faint spice. Flavor is sharp hop bitterness atop a dry, mellow malt profile that gradually smooths out with the Belgian yeast esters buried beneath the lingering hop notes. Medium body and carbonation.

Aroma is clove, lemongrass, honey and slight earthiness. Taste is a very well balanced malt/hop profile.also yeast and slight funk. Taste is like aroma with additional sweet maltiness, slight sour notes and light tanin. Appearance is a slightly hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Solid beer and an interesting idea. Fruity yeast notes overpower malt and hops

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.
