BottlePours out a crystal clear light orange/amber with a small off white head. I did sneak it in tothe glass though. Classic pine and citrus hop aroma, but not the overpowering, in-your-face strength that a "Macro-Micro" like NB would dare. Light malts and modest hop flavors. I had hoped for a little more. Slightly astringent and bitter. Papery, woody and not the fresh classic west coast IPA style I expected. Actually am surprised to see the hop bill on the comm. description. I wish I tasted more of the Simcoe and Cascade that I typically love. Nice long lasting bitter bite trailing. Pretty light bodied, and dry, which is good for the style. Decent but I didnít expect anything crazy from NB

branspra (293) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a larger, frothy white head. Aromas of grapefruit, citrus, and malts. Very crisp start on the palate and very refreshing, such a nice IPA for the summer. Flavors of malts more than hops but a nice refreshing finish. Very good summer beer!

A surprisingly strong IPA, full of hops. A nice "wilderness" beer, Beer Ranger Nob approved.

AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2010
I wasnít expecting much out of this because of itís wide distribution and the tendency for the hops to drop out of these things if they donít move through any stage of the distribution process quick enough, and I have to say that Iím pleasantly surprised. Clear golden orange with no head, the aroma is bright and full of sticky icky hop cones, aromas of chinook grapefruit, flavor is citrus hop rind, the chinooks really dominate the flavor and aroma. Very nice affordable IPA here... from a brewery thatís working pretty hard to be responsible in its environmental practices none the less.

Suneson (58) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2010
Nice golden color with a solid foaming head. Good smell of citrus and mango with a hint of hopps in it. It has a bold taste with a strong flavor of grapefruit to blend with the hoppy flavor. It is a nice easy drink for a sunny day on the golf course or just to enjoy on a hot sunny day.

KCBrown (20) - Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2010
The smell is a bit strong for an IPA, it taste good for itís type, but has a bitter lingering effect that is a turn off.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2010
Bomber. Appearance is a deep golden color with an inch of milky white head. Aroma is pine, mango and resinous hops. Flavor begins with bright floral hops and orange citrus along with toasted malt sweetness, sour grapefruit and bitter notes. It finishes toasty and slightly boozy with a bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a little creamy with a fair amount of hop bitterness and dryness throughout. Hop profile is relatively mild in comparison to some other American IPAs but the overall flavor is very light, refreshing and drinkable.

ORHomebrew (1) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2010 does not count
A solid IPA from the famous Belgian emulators. Not as good as several other beers in this series, but light and crisp nonetheless. If you want light and crisp.medium body, lightly bitter,

arondee (598) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2010
Pours a golden clear yellow with a small white head, not unlike a lager. Small amount of carbonation and a little bit of lacing. Aromas a floral hops, bread, pine, and grass. The taste is bitter pine hops, dirt, and citrus. Really good and really surprising.

On tap at Pizza Port San Clemente, I thought that this was a nicely balanced and tasty IPA. Good hop flavor with malt in the background.
