Tried this (on tap) last night at the bowling alley (it was the most interesting beer offering they had!). Colour... golden amber with a thin head. Nose... can certainly tell thereís simcoeís in there! Palate... decent hops up front that are somewhat sweet, with a bit oí cut grass and hay to round it out. Better than any of the "six pack" beers Iíve had from New Belgium, but certainly not the level of a La Folie!

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Gold with fluffy white head. Hoppy floral citrus aroma. Taste is strong floral-grapefruity hops with a solid biscuity malt base. A bit resinous. Very nice IPA.

Sweet hop aroma. Crisp, clean taste with a bitter finish. Slight citrus. Overall a solid IPA.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2010 22 oz bottle from Binnys South Loop (Chicago, IL). Pours a dulled golden orange, lightly hazed and very bubbly, an eggshell white decent sized with decent lacing. Aromas are earthy hops, florals and bitterness, a bit dank and dry, not too citrusy. A bit of grainy malt, but largely dry hop forward. Initial is medium bitterness, florals and grass, faint citrusy, with dough and biscuits, typical NB malt body, but a dry and fairly decent hop bite. Finish is dry and malty, telltale malts that I donít care for too much. Bit more smicoe comes in which really I like, but it isnít enough to save it from the typical NB Maltbill. Ok, not my kind of IPA. A decent effort.

pours a filtered crystal clear yellow orange with a thin yellow head. Nose is light hoppy with citrus and pine. taste is the same without much malt backing. The malt sweetness is more a hint of honey, but a thin flavor that doesnít fill out this beer. Mouth feel is more creamy than I expected and more suggestive of a beer of greater substance than this one. Finish is dry and a little too sharply bitter. Thanks for leaving the bottle, Mike. Sorry I didnít share. Iíll treat next time.

This came in a 12 pack, so it was a pleasant surprise. Letís see. It is a light golden color with a good head. Smelled really strong of hops. The hops in the taste dominates. A really strong, thick hop flavor. Nearly unbearable. There isnít much to smooth it out. If you enjoy hops and only hops, then this is it.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light amber with a thin head. Aromas of pine and bread. Good hop flavor up front with just the right amount of sweetness to balance it out. I was hesitant to buy a six of this, but Iím glad I did. A suprisingly well-crafted IPA.

Mora2000 (5930) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Pours orangish-yellow with a large white head. The aroma is pine and orange, but is not as strong as I expected. The flavor is orange with medium bitterness. Some grassy and flowery hop aromas as well as some grapefruit notes in the flavor, but there is a slight soapiness that distracts from the overall beer. The finish is bitter orange. Thin-medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
