4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle. Crystal clear amber with an inch of white foam in a tulip glass. Foam dissolves to a film with great lacing.
Smell is clearly Belgian. Nice banana/clove with some juicy hop.
Taste is a little less Belgian and more IPA. Still plenty of banana/clove but also a citrus hop flavor. A little more citrus as it warms.
Palate is medium with good carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a slightly murky dark blond beer with a medium sized, almost dense but not enough to be creamy, ivory coloured, medium long lasting head. A nice fruity mandarin hoppy, coriander like spicy and slight yeasty aroma fulfill your nose and gives you good expectations. I might recall a scent of ripe bananas. Not very complex but really pleasant. The flavor is first malty sweet, fruits which will turn into a hoppy grass above average bitter. Finish is almost long lasting and leaves you thirsty for some more. In Sum this beer is like advertised, an IPA with a Belgian twist that does not deliver the complexity of belgish beer but adds a interesting component to a good IPA. I like it more than Stones original arrogant Bastard and can recommend it. Cheers!

Bottle. Lemony and spicy aroma. Tangy and spicy, finishes with a stiff bitterness. Piney hops. Pretty much what youd expect from a belgian IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2016 Can from Alko, Helsinki. Pours clear golden with a little white head that leaves lacing. The aroma showcases the promised Belgian attributes; Belgian style fresh fruitiness and yeast combine with American citrusy fruitiness and a touch of malts – nice. Taste is dry, medium bitter and tart; flavours include sour apple, citrus fruits, herbs, earthy notes, grain. Definitely a combination of American and Belgian features, and nicely balanced one at that. The palate is medium bodied, average in carbonation. A much needed original take on IPA.

33cl can (by Stone Brewing Berlin). almost clear golden with big white head. Yeast, barnyard, grassy aroma. Taste follows with some hoppy and herbal notes. Overall, a bit of a deception.
