A tasty American IPA from New Belgium, quite a change for them! Citrusy Cascades mix with other aromas of flint, mint and onions? Smooth and bitter, not as malty as I’d like. Nice hop flavors in the finish. Kind of middle-of-the-road, not in the NW, CO or CA IPA style.

On tap at PB Bar & Grill (Pacific Beach, CA): Pours a clear gold with amber highlights and topped with a light white head, thick lacing. Aromatic notes of freshly ripened orange and grapefruit, florals, light earth, and a dusting of light sweet malts against a bitter backbone. Spruce and pine wash over the tongue, as well as bubblegum, butter-soaked citrus, light bread malt, and a little spice at the back of the palate. Sweet creamy mouthfeel, in no way that’s cloying. Moderate carbonation. Nice sweet finish. Drinkability: Opulent and fresh. Underrated! Pairing: $2 tacos on Tuesday. Rebuy: Yes. #345 on 16032010, DG.

Sampled on 1/29/2010. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with decent retention. The aroma is floral and citrusy hop, malt and fruit. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and citrusy. Touch of esters and yeast. Yup it tastes like the New Belgium house yeast. This beer would make a nice session IPA. A nice hop bite, but not all that bitter. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

brokensail (11077) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
A: The pour into a pint glass gives a clear golden amber color with a thin layer of cream colored foam which sticks to the wall of the glass. S: The nose is quite a bit better than I was expecting. Some pleasant grapefruit and pine aromas up front along with the bready malt on the back end. T: This one is surprisingly bitter, much more so than I thought it would be. The citrus is more of an after thought with plenty of resinous pine on the beginning and the finish. Not too much in the way of malt. M: The body is a touch thin, but still in the medium range with a fairly high level of carbonation. D: An easy drinking IPA, but there are certainly a lot better examples out there. That said, it’s nice to see New Belgium putting some more beers out there.

CanIHave4Beers (3321) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2010
pours an orange color with a good head and some nice lace along with some nice display of very slow steady bubbliness. The aroma is faint which is sad because there are nice things happening, like dank notes and orange peel, but sadly just a bit of cat pee. The flavor is biscuity like Fat Tire, there is no mistaking this one as a New Belgium creation. There is a nice big herbal and fruity hop presence and the beer is dry with just a touch of metallic character. Not bad overall.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is a wonderful boquet of floral hops, citrus, touch of malts. Flavor is fantastic. Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy. Nice, bitterness, but still retains a solid, clean mouthfeel, refreshing.

The beer poured a nice amber body with a thick head. The smell is bread and citrus. The taste is not a bitter as most ipa’s but it is very good. carbonation.
