12 ounce bottle. Aroma is very grassy, earthy, and herbal. Lightly pine-like. Grainy malt aromas. Transparent copper-orange body with a decent, medium off-white head present. Starts a bit grassy and herbal in the beginning. Piney hop notes come through in the middle with some tannins present. A little more pine to finish with a moderate bitterness. Tasty, but I am not sure if I like the grain bill on this. I prefer a juicier IPA.

Bottle, shared by NachlamSie. Pours a nice gold with whitish head. The aroma is unsurprising, with lots of grapefruit, slight lemon, and a faint honeyish waft. The flavor is much the same, with grapefruit being dominant. It finishes with a refreshing bitterness. This is a very textbook IPA, no surprises here. But it is very solidly constructed. Yum.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - MAR 24, 2010
This poured a lot lighter than I expected, almost straw color, with a decent white head. Plenty of hops in the aroma and taste. Nice finish. Very good brew.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2010
This is damn good beer, IMO. I tend to drink much more than I rate these days, so my ratings might be a bit dysfunctional. Beer has a nice fresh hop aroma. Really I could linger sniffing the glass, but that would deprive me of imbibing. Color is golden and clear and though this beer is almost crystal clear it doesn’t seem sterile. Flavor is lots of juicy, hop goodness and a nice subdued grainy backbone. I like my IPAs like this, hop bitch slap forward with some malt lingering in the background providing some tease. Very well done by New Belgium. One of my new go to beers.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2010
bottle. Pours a clear, light golden with an off-white head. Nose is of citrus hops. Taste is of citrus. Mouthfeel is crisp, sweet and bitter. Surprisongly better than expected.

19Ei8hty (1171) - Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Good looking straw body with a soft ecru head that is tall and lasting. Solid malt body with caramel notes that build a moderate sweet scaffolding for a very decent hop presence. Slightly floral and grassy with soft pine, resin, some herbal qualities and a dash of citrus. A tad watery and simplistic but very sessionable with mass appeal.

First, the smell. This beer has a great floral aroma that sets the stage for what you taste perfectly. I really like the smell of this beer. The head is moderate, with good lacing. The citrus/floral flavors leave the finish crisp. Nice beer.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - MAR 23, 2010
12oz. bottle. Pours a clear light golden yellow with a good sized fluffy white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is crisp citrus, grapefruit, some pine, and light caramel and bread. Flavor is well balanced, with more citrus, grapefruit, and caramel malts. A totally boring but sessionable IPA.

BelgianBeerGal (3240) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2010
12oz local bottle. Pours a clear, light, golden-brown colour with a surprisingly small white head. Moderate lacing. Very piney hops in the aroma plus some pineapple and malt. Nice flavour with some stronger bitterness in the finish. Once again, more of the NW resiny hops over sweeter, fruitier notes.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 Very solid IPA, had on tap at New Belgium during the tour. Would like to drink again to give it a proper rating. Re-rate, July 1st 2010: Light golden pour, fairly large white head. Aroma is citrus and floral hops. A solid body, if not a little light, good carbonation, and lots of hops. As i said before, just a solid IPA all around.
