Can from Raynvile store, Leeds.
My first one from this brewery.
Banana aroma, tastes of more banana and fruit, maybe Mango. Does bring to mind the Belgian beers.
Really lovely IPA. I have a thirst for more....

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl. can, poured in to a Tulip. Brewed in Berlin. Hazy, golden-amber colour with a medium sized, fading white head. Fruity aroma where the Belgian yeasts is showing: Sweet exotic fruits, banana, apricot, peaches. Citrus fruits, bubblegum, floral hops. Taste is bitter - far less bitter than the regular IPA. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with sweet, exotic fruits, yeasts and citrus. An interesting take on the American IPA:. However, I prefer the original.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Parfümös illat, mintha belga sört innék. Ízében számomra zavaróan nincs összhang. Szerintem ez a belga stílus nem illik az ipákhoz.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Can from beer52 mail order club. Thin head on pouring and a strong banana aroma. The banana flavour is present in the beer too but not over powering. Pleasantly hopped, very enjoyable all round!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl can, brewed in Berlin, from Beer52.com. A pale amber pour with a loose white head; pleasant aroma of coriander and yeast; dry and crisp with a grassy bitterness and lots of corinader; then a long, dry finish with some warming spice and a rounded herbal bitterness. A definite Belgian influence.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, with distinct notes of yeast and spice. An enticing prelude. The taste is bittersweet up front with a candy bubblegum flavor defining the sweeter side. This is swept away going into the finish, which is defined solely by a hoppy bitterness that can feel astringent at times. As with the normal IPA from Stone, I am a fan of the palate which is creamy, sticky, smooth and yet not overly heavy. Apart from the finish, which is merely mediocre, a very nice brew.
