3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
light amber pour, slightly cloudy - aroma of sour apples and malt - the flavor profile is all over the place from the Belgian yeast (I am not a big Belgian beer fan), sweet, fruity, and finishes with that characteristic Belgian yeast taste

650ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, courtesy of Konstantinos. Unclear golden color with off white head. Hoppy aroma, grassy, citrusy, light pine, light spicy and some yeasty notes when it gets warmer. Sweet, heavy bitter taste like aroma. Light to medium body oily with soft carbonation.

12oz bottle pours a clear dark yellow color. Getting some banana, biscuit, malts, and hops in the aroma. Tastes fantastic with the bitterness of the hops balancing out the sweetness of the fruits. Lightly carbonated and quite drinkable. Smooth on the palate with some bite. This belgian-ipa really hit the spot for me and I thoroughly enjoyed this offering!

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Dannysir. Aromas of malts and slightly of alcohol. A nice crisp flavor of malts super light, great taste! Slight flavors of hops towards the end.

22 ounce bomber. I love Stone beers but this is the 1st time I’ve had this one. Tastes fruity, hoppy and refreshing going down then a huge bitter fruit aftertaste then the dryness. I couldn't find a date on the bottle. To be fair, I would like to try this fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow with fine white head. Nose is citrus zest, Belgian yeast, grass, a little banana. Taste is a chaotic mix of spicy hops, white pepper, some pine, a very very bitter finish. Tastes as advertised but bitterness and yeast character too overwhelming for my palate.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Bright yellow pour with good clarity, lots of small, rising bubble steams. Super soapy & foamy eggshell cap leaves nice lacing as it recedes slowly. Aroma is just as advertised; fairly equal mix of American style hopping with a Belgian yeast underbody. Semi-dank, green & grassy hops with modest pine pungency, over top a peppery/spicy yeast blanket. Undertones of peppermint, pear, & light caramelized sugar. Flavor is more zesty & spicy with a strong waft of white pepper, pine, herbaceous & earthy notes, a touch of rose, & a small splash of soapiness in the back-end. Herbal/spicy finish with a strong yeasty & bready overtone. Light pine sap & oily resins flow into the aftertaste from time to time. Not a bad IPA, though I can’t help but think this would be better without the Belgian twist.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber bottle. Slightly floral aroma. Pours a cloudy dark amber, with a thick white head of tight bubbles. Pleasant bitterness with a slight "funk" from the Belgian yeast. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with high carbonation leading to a fizzy mouthfeel. Pretty good IPA actually.
