Clear golden orange pour, large lasting poof of white foam. Sweet citrus aroma on it, mandarin orange, grapefruit, caramel. Malt body is a toasty, caramelly, but not dominantly so. Lightly sweet candied citrus flavors, resinous pine, cedar. Very solid, better than I initially expected it to be, but ultimately not terribly exciting.

12 oz. golden pour from bottle. Hops abound, with a citrus nose and bitter citrus / spice taste. Well balanced IPA. Cheers!

Served from bottle into a Spaten mug. Poured a nice golden yellow with a one-finger white head that contained a nice rainbow effect on it, but subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. There was nice lacing apparent throughout. The aroma was comprised of only hops. The flavor was only comprised of hops with a very slight spicy note to it. It was light on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a decent IPA that was very light on the hoppy flavor. It could have been a great brew if it either had something to balance the hoppy flavor present or had more hops present. However this one is worth a shot for any hop-head out there who has not tried it.

Wow, this one impressed me. Not being a huge fan of Fat Tire I wasn’t going into this one with great expectations. Poured a pale clear golden, nice lace eventually. Simcoe aroma, actually really nice. Taste is the same, mouthfeel isn’t thin but rather full. Subtle bitterness, finishes dry. Nice.

Great pleasure to find a quality beer in a great category (IPA) at a very fair price. The kind of beer I can put up a bunch when friends are coming over and serve something better than they are used to. Just a good, all around IPA.

Had this beer on tap in Evansville, Indiana. Poured out a light orange color with an off white head, good head retention throughout the entire beer. The aroma of the beer is very nice with light pine and grapefruit notes coming through. Taste is very bitter more bitter than I expected and the hops come off very fresh and bright. This is an excellent IPA, very quality stuff.

Pours a light amber color. Nice head. I smell spicy and very bitter hops. Slightly skunky too. Very smooth maltiness that is out shinned by hop flavor. Clean finish with huge hop bitterness. Flowers with a slight pine taste are in the finish. A super tasty brew. Very thirst quenching and satisfying. I know that New Belgium mimics Belgian styles pretty good, but this more impressive a brew than the others they offer.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Bottle pours a clear golden amber with a tall offwhite head that retains well and deposits lavish patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrusy pink grapefruit with some notes of orange and pine. Creamy light medium body is aggressively carbonated. Taste is bitter but not one dimensional.. Pink grapefruit with apricot hints open, followed by an earthy and grassy bitterness. Honey drenched biscuit notes add a tasty malt balance. Very well done.

Tap at New Belgium Hub in DIA. Pours a lightly hazy orange with golden amber notes and a creamy off white head that laced. aroma of floral and citrusy hops, light caramel and toasted malt. Flavor of pine, light grapefruit, floral hop notes and lightly toasted malt.
