Had this on tap at palmer’s Beer Garden in LaGrange Park, IL, and then picked up a 6 pack as I was heading out of state. A little lighter in body in than typical IPA, but packs a fine aromatic and citrusy (grapefruit) hoppiness. Very refreshing on a hot day and full of flavor an character. I *really* wish New Belgium would expand into Michigan…

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2010 Poured from 12 oz bottle. Aroma is like a slightly hoppier version of Fat Tire. Appearance is like Fat Tire, with a little more of a creamy head. Taste is like Fat Tire, but a little more hoppy. Eh, probably won’t have again, not bad just average...........Re Rate w/ second bottle. Maybe the first one was an accidental Fat Tire they threw in there, the 2nd bottle is hoppier in aroma and taste is much more crisp.

Bottle from a six pack. pours a light amber color with a medium white head that diminishes quickly. Fizzy with carbonation. Bitter aftertaste, which is normal for an IPA, but this is a little more than usual. Taste is roasted malt.

phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2010
12oz. bottle. Pours golden bronze and sparkling. Aroma has citrus and malty. Taste is very livily with somewhat of a high IBU count, but the flavor is full. Great taste overall...very satisfying.

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Light orange almost yellow body with a standard white head. Aroma is citrusy hops with some caramel malts. Flavor comes through as a bit subdued compared to the aroma. Just a hint of hops up front with a finish that isn’t too wholly remarkable and is perhaps a bit astringent. All right beer for the most part.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours an orange gold color with off white frothy bubbly head which lingers as a nice film. Aroma of sweet resiny hops, slight citrus but in a sweeter way, like tangerine, and cake. Flavor is nice resin-pine like hops, sweet and pungent, which then reveals a cake like malt consistency, back to a slight bitterness of the hops on the finish. Medium to full bodied, not too thick or syrupy. Overall a pretty solid IPA, great flavors, not TOO big (read: sessionable). Good good stuff.

Draft. Clear golden orange color, slight white head. Aroma of subtle hops. Taste is slight bitterness not overly bitter. Very little lacing. Lingering on bitter. Decent but nothing spectacular. Decently balanced. Light/medium mouthfeel.

daknole (10112) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Gold pour. White head. Resin, citrus and herbal hops galore. Flavor hits with a pretty good hop bite followed by a bit of malt to balance and finished with a good juicy bitterness. Not bad!

piscator34 (2088) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 3, 2010
Bottled sample via mnurda. Light copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of grapefruit, pine, mild caramel malt, and a bit of toasted malt. Pine is a bit more upfront in the mouth, backed up by light citrus, earth, and a bit of vegetal character. Slightly chalky dry finish. Light bodied with a firm bitterness. Not bad overall, but the vegetal element diminished my enjoyment a bit.
