330ml can. Can smell the hops a mile off, aroma rich with notes of toffee and banana, lovely golden colour and pours a big white head. Taste is cakeish, almost banana bread, with subtle hints of spice and lots of flavour in that Belgian yeast. Missing a real hop crescendo, but it hits the mark in a big way with the yeasty, almost wheat-like finish. Solid effort from a classy brewery. KennethArd (666) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2018

Clear yellow-golden, thick foam. Faint smell of ripe bananas.
Lightly bitter, lightly sour, very balanced.
Subtle aroma of bananas. TorbenJensen (1602) - Valby, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2017
Nice, continuous foam. Aroma is flowers, yeast and ripe banana. The taste is discreetly light caramel, which quickly transforms into a delicious bunch of ripe bananas, light flower, mango, orange peel, grape and passion fruit. The hop is medium and carry the malt balance in a good way. Half dry aftertaste where the malt is not lost, yet maintains the hop bitterness, like an IPA, and puts its footprint on the fruity way that American hops are known for. But why should it bear the name of a Belgian IPA? I have never understood what it means, besides that it also has the slightly indefinable taste of yeast and spices that are often characteristic of Belgian beer. So, at the same time as its clear aroma, yeast is probably the only Belgian touch I can find. Well, it's an elegant and tasteful IPA, whether its origin is American or Belgian.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2017 Positiv overraskelse her.
Masser af humle i næsen. På den frugtige måde.
Rund i smagen, mindre bitter og tør end forventet.
Virkelig en lækker ipa! miki74 (207) - Sabadell, SPAIN - DEC 10, 2017

Best before: August 2017.
Pours clear Tripel-like golden with a frothy, collapsing, white head. The aroma contains yeast, flowery hops, spices, banana (even some faint, undisturbing and hardly artificial bubblegum), mango, grapefruit and passionfruit. It tastes light fruity & malty sweet (more banana) and medium to heavy hoppy bitter; dry, hoppy, bit yeasty finish. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy to soft carbonation. Great cross-over!
Can at home. Pours deep yellow with a persistent bubbly head about one finger thick. Lazy light carbonation. Aroma almost wheat-beer like – spicy funky banana. In the mouth, some banana, spice and hops plus strong soapy/hoppy finish which is relatively short-lived. Punchy grass and some juicy fruit but a little soapy.
The mouthfeel of this is too hot – Admittedly not a huge fan of Stone beers which I often think are a bit unnecessarily brash, but knocking a percent off this would be much more palatable.
