Shakesbeere (219) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2010 12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold. A promising aroma. Smells of hops , citrus, and pine. Taste is bitter -- a lot of hops with some pine flavor. A minimal citrus flavor. Overall, the taste is not very complex. Palate is smooth. A fine brew, but not the best ipa.

Clear, light copper pour with a decent frothy head. Nice earthy hoppy aroma. Strong citrus notes in the flavor, as well as a good kick of hops. A different beer for New Belgium. I like it!

Bottle - I like it. A nicely hopped IPA. Not too aggressive but - that signature hop pallete is there. It has that signature New Belgium flavor to it - if that makes sense. There’s a malty quality too - similar to what I taste in the Fat Tire. It’s a good solid IPA. I’d buy it again.

Pours a yellow/orange, a bit lighter than most IPA’s, also fairly transparent, with a good bit of dense white foam. Aroma of hops and citrus fruit, and strangely, just a bit of a burnt kind of smell, maybe roasty malts or something. Taste is hops, grassy/wheaty, not as complex as I’d like but not bad at all.

Rich amber color with white frothy head that disappears a bit too quickly. Mild hoppy aroma. Well balanced hoppy profile that is flavorful without being too bitter. Very enjoyable IPA.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Tap...orange-hued body w/white head that became a ring and laced many rings around the glass. Hoppy aroma of floral grassy piny hops. Medium body with light carb and a bit dry. Lightly sweet front followed by a fairly bitter finish of pine and flowers. A decent IPA.

12 oz. bottle. Nice thick head that leaves good rings on the glass. Aroma is floral and very hoppy with slight citrus. Taste is pretty bitter, strong hop flavor. Medium body that is on the thicker side for IPA, though it has a lively carbonation. Finish is all hops though. Overall, a nice hop rich beer. If you like Hops, you’ll like this, but there are some better IPA’s out there. Better as I went through it.

12 ounce bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar ($1.79). Pours a yellow-orange, a little on the pale side for an IPA. Two fingers of off-white head leaves good lacing. Aroma is on the weak side but includes grassy/hay hops, light citrus, and a note of maltiness. Flavor is also more "earthy" hop flavors (grassy, soapy) that is lightly but pleasantly bitter along with some caramel maltiness. Rather light mouthfeel with a dry-ish finish. Okay IPA. (444, 322)

dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Strong bitter hop aroma. Pours a deep amber, clear, with a slightly brown head. Starts off with a nice toasted malt, grassy, bitter hops, and finishes with a nice bitter tail. A good IPA overall. New Belgiums’ delcious malt evident but could afford to use a more original hop blend.

Had on tap with the Chicago team at Timothy O’Tooles. Bottle while watching Lakers/Celtics final. Loved this beer. Delicious medley of hops, smooth drinking, one of the best single IPA’s hands down.
