3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden orange with a clean, foamy white head. Aromas of flowers, oranges, pines, and dried mangoes. Flavors are sweet orange and mango at first, some floral, pine, and herb in the middle with a bitter bite and a dry finish. Honestly, I havenít had an IPA like this one yet. It is much more floral and piney than others.

Pours a straw color. I agree with my brother, has a weird vegetal thing going on with it. Lacked any hop or bitter complexity.

Pours a halt straw color with pillowy head. Aroma is light spice and vegetables. Taste is very earthy and vegetal. Blech. Bad bottle? Not enjoyable at all times.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a hazy golden orange colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dissipates within a minute, a fair amount of speckled spider web lacing.
The smell is floral yet there are elements of toffee that come through in a weird sort of way.
The taste is bitter but sweet, the toffee comes back fairly strong, super dry aftertaste and finish (wow, perhaps one of the driest beers Iíve ever had).
The palate is about a light to medium, and fairly sessionable. Carbonation is fairly subdued but still good for the style.
Overall, AIPA, wow, uh... ok, I guess it is, but I say pretty different than what Iíve had, the strong toffee coming through in the aroma and taste is pretty different, not sure where Iím getting that, but alright, good for New Belgium for trying something different, but I canít see myself wanting this again.

Golden brown pour with solid white foam and good lacing. The flavor of hops isnít overpowering like many IPAs, but the definite bitterness one would expect in the aftertaste. I would definitely go for this again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate caramel, lemon, herbal notes, and citrus. It pours a mostly transparent amber with a decent amount of sediment. It has a two finger soapy off-white head that has pretty good retention. A lot of soapy webbing is left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with caramel and light fruit. The finish has light-moderate lemon grass, citrus, and herbal notes. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.
