Light in color for a stone brew but delicious. The aroma is pleasing with hints of Belgian influence. Taste is surprising light but still complex. Lived up to my expectation.

Can from Beer52. Gold with a white head and a pleasant frothy fizz. Smells of Belgian banana yeast and lemon. The banana yeast is to the fore in the flavour as well, with orange, grass, mint and spice too. It’s very dry and mildly bitter. I just don’t like that banana in an IPA; although I appreciate it’s well executed it’s really not my sort of beer and my least favourite of the 6 Stone beers that Beer52 sent me. victorsampson96 (103) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2017
(330 ml can) Pours a slightly hazy straw-golden beer, with fine carbonation, and a large dense white head. The Belgian yeast aromas come through straight away: banana, cloves, and sourdough bread. This is backed by a strong base of fresh malt. The classic west coast aromas come through just behind: lemon, caster sugar and grapefruit.
The flavour is medium-sweet, but has a distinctive dry-tart finish, enhanced by the light, slick mouthfeel of the beer.
This is an interesting Belgian-Californian crossover. The Belgian yeast clearly adds a new dimension to what would otherwise be a fairly ordinary APA. Overall, it’s a happy marriage - characterful and refreshing. sebsky (88) - ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2017

Can at home. A very nice beer that I would describe as an American IPA, but with more body and interest. Which is probably what they were intending. A very nice, bitter hop flavour with a smooth mouthfeel. A dark colour, stong hop aroma and a welcome hit of alcohol. This is definitely one to revisit.

Puszka z datą : 08.2017
AROMAT : Intensywny. Chmielowe. Głownie nuty ziołowo-karmelowe. W tle nuty cytrusowe, mniej drożdżowe (fenole).
SMAK : Mocno drożdżowe (fenole). Niezła podbudowa słodowa. Dosyć wysokie nasycenie Posmak cytrusowy z domieszką drożdży. Goryczka wysoka, nieco zalegająca.
WYGLĄD : Barwa jasnozłota, opalizujące. Piana niska, krótka.
OGÓLNIE : Po raz kolejny sprawdza się zasada, że piwa mocno chmielone (nawet te w puszce) należy pić świeże.
