Loved the aroma of this one. Very distinctive grapefruit aroma and hop taste. Nice bite to it. Enjoyable! well done.

flatmatt (1187) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with lots of grapefruit and florals. Flavor has a lot of floral hops with some citrus and pine notes; biscuit malt backup with some grassier hops toward the end. Palate is a bit on the thin side. Clean, but fairly unexciting.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Bottle from Midtown. Pours golden amber with a diminishing white head. Nice citrusy and floral hop aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Pale caramel malt backbone to a nicely balanced bitterness of citrus and pine. Moderate bitter and semi dry finish with a slight amount of clinging resin. Nicely done. Pleasantly bitter without going over the top. Worth a repeat purchase.

mrmekon (100) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Clear, golden pour with a thick white head, moderate lacing. Strong hoppy aroma, evergreens and pineapple. Light body, medium to low carbonation. Caramelized malty sweetness up front quickly fades to a bitter, hoppy bite. Quite a bit of pine. Mild sour aftertaste. Good, but the flavor is fleeting.

sethdude (704) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Pours very clear gold with a pillowy white head that lasts. Great lacing. Aroma is predictable, medicinal hops, with a faint orange funk. Flavor is a hesitant dark toast malt backbone and an overdone hop profile. Not as finely balanced as others in the category. Another example of "more is more", not "more is better".

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2010
12fl.oz bottle pours orange with a medium head. Grassy, floral aromas dominate the nose, with initial tasting showcasing a medium carbonation for the style and a middle range bitterness. The beer finishes well with a short lingering bitterness on the palate. It’s good to find such beers widely available if no other options present. Good work new belgium brewing.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - MAR 30, 2010
March Madness tasting -

Aroma: Floral, full of citrusy and piney punch, it takes some of the greatest hops and makes a great smelling beer.

Appearance: Clear golden body, 1" off-white head, decent lacing, head stuck around for awhile.

Taste: Herbal, grapefruits, with a nice showing of malts for balance. Finish has an herbal/spicy quality to it.

Palate: Slightly sticky, medium bodied, nice carbonation.

Overall: Very nice, affordable IPA that was long overdue from NB.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
mmmbeer (1275) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Draught served in shaker @ local resturant: Served with a half finger with head that laced nicely, low carbonation, aroma of grapefruit and pine. Hit the mouth with a high-medium body, malt is there but gets a little lost in the sensations from light spices, grass, and hop wave. Middle has the latter of those sensations come into play, finish is lingering and acidic. Wouldn’t mind getting some more of this.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - MAR 29, 2010
From a 22 oz bomber purchased locally. Aroma is hoppy, slightly flowery. A clear gold color with a nice tight white creamy head. Clean malt with a bit of biscuit/toast character and a firm bitterness in the background, not overpowering. Hop flavor is more on the earthy side, and again not over the top. Crisp and dry, and very easy drinking. Not an over-the-top beer, but well made and sessionable.

Is this a mere single IPA? It’s commendably resinous. Perhaps brewers as of late are blurring the hard and fast distinction between single and double IPA.
