A: pours a great, clear copper color. Nice frothy white head, with a great retention rate and outstanding lacing.
S: great aroma of spices from the Belgian side , very flowery and earthy. Great nose from the hops, slight citrus and earthy notes.
T: great IPA notes, some citrus and earthy flavors blend well with the Belgian sweetness and spiciness. Very well done.
M: full bodied brew. Nice bitter palate with some sweet malt backbone. Big carbonation level.
D: nice brew and well worth getting. A typically good brew from a good brewery. I love this style. skortila (6009) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2010
West USA trip 2010. On tap @ Stone Brewery. The aroma has citrus, some yeast tones. Clear, golden coloured with a white head. The taste has light bitterness, citrus, some pine, hint of orange, some dusty belgian yeast present. Quite soft taste, crisp mouthfeel. Nice one. marioc3 (3) - USA - AUG 20, 2010 does not count
soft, Flavorful IPA... Not a hop devil (good or bad depending how you like your IPA’s) You can taste the hops but doesn’t overpower the other grassy notes... Good for a wide range of beer drinkers not only IPA lovers. iNBe (100) - USA - AUG 17, 2010
While I am normally not a fan of IPA’s this one delivered. I had the 22 ouncer. Good stuff. 50belair (3697) - Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2010
On tap at Vine and Barley. I usually really like Stone’s beer, but this one sucked.

Not sure what I was expecting with this. I was pleasantly surprised. Thanx DK. Poured into a St. Bernadus Goblet, clear Honey colored pour with a foamy ivory head that leaves significant lacing on the inside of the glass. The nose is...interesting, earthy, some Belgian yeast character, spicy hops, Grapefruit rind. Nice bitter sweet flavors, a hint of belgian yeast, caramel, grapefruit and pine. Fruity bitter finish. Active carbonation. Delicious beer. Drinks very well. scoobysnak (333) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Nose is citrus hops with a hops backbone and some sweet cotton candy that fits nicely in the background. Looks slightly hazy with a golden tint. Taste is somewhat confusing. I get the spice nots of a belgian ale with some citrus and bitter hops breaking through. Finally finishes with a nice aftertaste. Just what you expect from Stone. rocbyter (2184) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Sweet with mild spice in the aroma. Clear dark golden color with a medium white head. Sweet hop beginning gets more bitter in the finish ending with a sharp hop bite. TonyDiUlio (679) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Enjoyed with Pat from Capone’s. Pour is a clear copper, Head lasted and laced well in the final pour glass. Aroma is a sweetr mix of maple and vanilla pancakes. Flavor is nice mix of hops and vanilla leaf. Palate give hints of flavor throughout the tongue. Something interesting that i can’t name. Nice brew. stchloe (1118) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Its an IPA, its a Belgian beer, maybe a dubbel, its both! Plus its ridiculously strong. It has a great aroma of a sweet Belgian and some slight hoppiness.
