3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very drinkable IPA from the brewers here. Wonderful aroma of pine, some floral citrus, and biscuit malt. Beautiful clear gold pour with a dense white head. Super clean taste that is’nt overly hoppy, just the right hop bite. This is the kind of beer to give a novice beer drinker to introduce them to the joy of hops. Very aromatic, clean crisp hoppy taste, and a long bitter finish add up to a very nice offering from New Belgium!

Decent IPA, but missing that certain something according to my taste. A tad lighter and more bitter than Great Divide’s Titan (my fav IPA).
