3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A beautiful hop aroma just like if you were brewing comes from this cloudy pale orange brew with a small white head. For the taste I get fresh wert with an aftertaste of green. Maybe broccoli or peas in the pod. It is grassy I guess is the best way to put it. Itís light bodied and refreshing with a decent carb. Buy it. Worth it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a straw color. I agree with my brother, has a weird vegetal thing going on with it. Lacked any hop or bitter complexity.

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.
