Draft from Growlerís Pub. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of herbal hops, vegetal notes, pale malts, straw, and pine. Flavor of pine resin, herbal notes, malts, vegetal notes, straw, and honey. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter mouthfeel and carbonation snap. Mellows as it goes down. Dry finish. Not bad, good summer IPA.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This balanced India Pale Ale presents citrusy and floral hops with lightly biscuity, honeyed cereals for a perhaps generic, but still competent and enjoyable pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy blond.
-The intensity of the hop aroma is levelled with the hop flavour and bitterness.
-The hop finish is mostly wooden and leafy.
-The mouthfeel is healthy; not too thin, not too bulky.

On tap at the Oakland Coliseum.

A decent IPA, if rather uninspired. Hops is the name of the game with this beer, but itís underwhelming in the aroma (which is nice....just a little weak) and also in the flavor (which is very one dimensional). Might make for a good crossover to IPAs, as the hops are kept in check. However, for a hophead this leave much to be desired.

Dogbrick (9156) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for sharing a bottle. This brew pours a clear yellow-orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops along with sweet malt and herbs. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Above average overall.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale Łber alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 6, 2010
bottle bb 11jun10 consumed 1/6/10. hazy golden colored pour with a foamy, rocky and clingy off white head. lots of drippy spots remain on the glass. there is a sulphur-y onion aroma in front of florals, light pine, orange pith and some malty sweetness. the palate is quite dry throughout but does have a nice maltiness to balance out the hops. flavors include onion/sulphur, orange, mild pine, malt and a prickly earthy hop finish. it has a really nice hop filled aftertaste. the body is medium with a creamy mouth feel and prickly texture from the hops. 7/4/7/3/16/3.7

Very good. I am a fan of New Belgium and always will be. I had this off tap during a show I played so I didnít have much time to dig into this beer. I will however say that it was highly enjoyable and took the edge off. I will look for this again. A very good IPA.

JaBier (5286) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Grassy hop nose with pine and a bit of malt. Grassy and piney hop flavor with a touch of malt before a lasting bitter finish.

Big pine and citrus hop aroma with some sweet malt in the background. Bright golden with a thick white head that leaves thick, sticky rings down the glass. Adequate bitterness for an IPA. Full bodied and soft. Finishes long and pleasantly bitter. One of the better widely available IPAs out there and my favorite New Belgium product.

This appeared at my local Safeway. Iíve had the Fat Tire lots of times, so I tried it. First response: this is a M.F. Very hoppy. I like it better than Fat Tire. My current favorites besides this are Torpedo and Lagunitas IPA, which also really hoppy. I must have a hops imbalance in my bloodstream and this is making up for it.
