3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
aroma of dried apricot, pear, green apples, plums, mustiness. pours a beautiful orangish bronze, bordering on copper. large thick white head, almost whip cream. tastes of dried apricot, and tart apple, but bitter, to start, but finishes with a dash of peach and plum before the bitter aftertaste takes over. alcohol is present. palate is full and crisp, nicely carbonated, not too much. overall a stone fruit imperial which bares the alcohol; little malt flavor, creating a dry flavor.

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Sweet overripe fruit with floral/perfumey notes and a nice dankness. Lemon, pine, soap, light caramel, light light ginger, grapefruit... Not too sweet, nicely done.

One of the best IPA’s I’ve had without spending more than I’d want to. This beer is exactly what I look for in an IPA in all areas. Nice and hoppy with a great aftertaste. New Belgium has yet to disappoint me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear amber, foamy white head, decent retention and spotty lacing. Aroma is strongly floral, with hints of pine, resin and citrus. Taste is sweet caramel and nuts, with hints of lime and orange. Finishes with a lingering astringent bitterness, floral notes. Full bodied, soft carbonation, sticky texture. Quite nice.
