3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Resinous, piney hops over good malt in the aroma. Nice yoked bottle, good label. Clear, orange-tan brew with a fluffy white head. Twangy kumquat zest up front, great bittering, very light diacetyl. Pineapple tones. Zesty on the lips. Satisfying mouthfeel, lingering bitterness. Best of several new beers tonight. Pretty good. World Market.

This powerhouse hits first with a sweet smell. Peach is very dominant in the taste, which is then promptly obliterated by the hop bomb and bitter parade.

Easy smooth drinking IIPA from new Belgium. Very well balanced, thin in body, smooth. Aroma muted. Typical new Belgium brew where I taste traces of fat tire in every style they put out. Can always tell its a New Belgium product.

Pours a clear golden color with a two finger white head. The aroma is hops and citrus. The taste is similar. Up front you get a hop oil flavor with a bitterness kick and some citrus throughout. On the back end you get some breadiness.

Pretty good imperial from New Belgium...well worth a try. High alcohol content doesn't affect the taste either
