4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light copper body and wonderful ivory head in retention. The aroma is undeniably STONE IPA, but a twistÖ. Spicy esters, mango, guava, grapefruitÖ the dry-hopping is SO fresh and aromatic that itís near euphoric! Yet the phenols are a bit shrill.
The flavor is tropical fruit and citrusy zest. Sticky palate, AhhhÖ. Iím in love!

Bottle from ipa sampler. Nose is hop and flower. Pours clean and light. Starts with dry hop taste then some floral and banana sweetness. Not bad but not amazing either. Like their other iPas better.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle best by June 20, 2015.
Glass: Dogfish Head signature.
Appearance: Crystal clear vibrant amber body with a sparkling body. The head is frothy, a bit rocky, with a very light tan hue.
Aroma: The aroma is pleasant, a bit restrained though. Lemon is prominent with light yeasty phenols, sweet mango and apricot jump through on swirling with some honeydew as well.
Taste: Nice blend of light malts, honeydew, lemon, mango, peach, and orange zest along with notable peppery phenols. Dang this drinks great.
Palate: Full-bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This is a surprise, I donít even generally like Belgian IPAs. This is a cut above any Iíve had, the yeast is restrained enough to not clash with the west coast hops. Dang.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at BrewDog Dundee. Poured golden/amber with a white frothy head. Aromas of grass and slightly piney, with almost fruitiness about it. Tastes resiny, grassy, (maybe even a bit floral) with the feel of a Belgian ale. Absolutely blew me away!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

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.
