Bomber into snifter glass, faint amber-hued golden color with off-white head. Aroma of herbal straw, malt sweetness, pepper, faint spices, fruity and citrus/pine hops. Taste adds notes of white pepper, yeast, grain, lemon, candy sugar and pine hop bitterness. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, crisp, dry with pine/citrus bitter finish. More Belgian pale ale after 3 months but still quite tasty.

Pale, clear golden color with thin white head. Aroma of hops and a strong presence of fruity Belgian ale. A bit of grapefruit flavor. Definitely more IPA than Belgian.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle purchased at Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida. Clear golden, very large white head, excellent lacing, very good retention. Aroma of citrus, yeast, light sweetness. Flavour is of lemons, yeast, lots of citrus, lightly bitter. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, bitter, lots of citrus and yeast. Itís ok but Stone isnít my favourite maker of Belgian ales.

Love this style of ipa, where the Belgian yeast gives an added complexity to a great ipa, maybe not quite as good as raging bitch, but still a stunning beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Iíd prefer this to have a much bolder aroma. Peaches, mango and sweet grapefruit, dough, caramel, orange. Tastier than it smells but not high end stuff. Subdued sweetness before getting pummeled by some mean bitterness. Pine sizzle, tang, unsweetened grapefruit. Dry. Well carbonated. Pretty good but need to go up against others to figure out where it really ranks. The last half tasted better and was more enjoyable after I stopped analyzing.
