On draft at New Belgium Tasting Room. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Nose is some light caramel, malt, grassy with hits of citrus interspersed. Flavor follows with grassy and herbal hops intermingling with some mild citrus. A nice, medium-bodied IIPA, that shows no sign of being so high in alcohol; drinks like a 4% IPA.

Pours a slightly hazed golden orange color with a white head. Sweet fruity hops, a nice tropical fruit aroma, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, and mango. Some toasted bread and a hint of pine. The flavor has a light pine bitterness, but is fairly sweet otherwise. Lots of fruit character to the taste, too. Some peach, pineapple, and grapefruit hops, and a nice floral quality, too.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at New Belgium. Clear gold pour, white head. Dank and grassy is all you need to know. Sniffing and chewing on a grass and weed liquid. I donít mind this style, but man is it ever dank!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery, GABF weekend
Appearance: Clear golden with a big white head
Aroma: Grassy and citrus
Taste: Grassy and piney
Decent. Turns out Iím not a big fan of wet hopped beers, seems to be a lot of them out this year. Most are so grassy it takes away from the rest of the beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 On tap at the brewery. Pour is golden honey with a small white head and good lacing. Pine, weed, grain, biscuit, grass, and bitter fruit peel in the aroma. Resin, weed, orange peel, caramel, and bread with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad, but needs more hoppiness for a wet hop.
