RedSox2004 (1554) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Clear bright golden orange, one-finger head that left nice lacing. Light grapefruit and pine aromas, with a biscuity undertone. Bitterness up front on the tongue, but ample bready malts for balance. Creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, and a well-balanced aftertaste.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Orange pour with white head with some sticky lace. Orange, lemon, pine, and a whiff of grass on the nose. Hop bite on the initial taste. Pine resin, orange peel, lemon.....nice. Not much balance, I think that was the point. There is a hint of malt sweetness in the background to keep things interesting. Medium mouthfeel. A bit oily. Dry long lasting bitter finish. This may be my go to beer for the summer. Great price at under $8/6pk.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Light amber with a large fluffy off-white head that quickly fades and leaves some frothy lacing. Aroma of pine, resinous hops, citrus, mild floral hops and some sweet malt. Taste of floral and resinous hops mixed with some malt. Long lasting bitter finish. Kind of bland, not a huge fan of this one.

Aroma is is mainly grapefruit and pine. Likewise the taste leans heavily toward the grapefruit end of the spectrum due to the large amount of hops used in this beer. I also taste hints of caramel and bread/toast. Hops linger on palate for quite a while after drinking one of these. Overall a pretty enjoyable beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3551) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 25, 2010
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 (774) - 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 (1448) - 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.

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.
