3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from tap to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head that settled. Aroma is grapefruit, melon, pine, grassy. Taste is dry sweet with a nice hop bitterness following. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Overall this is a good brew.

Dry, medium bodied, mid to high bitterness, balanced CO2.
Hoppy, resiny taste, caramel, orange peel, spruce, apricot, grass, malt. And the saffron from the aroma - there’s loads of it!
Quite good and sessionable. (2014-10-04)

for an everyday drinker, they hit the nail on the head with this one...fresh pine and floral hops in the nose, light bodied but ridiculously easy drinking. flavor is nice balance of malt and hops, with a bittersweet finish. great session beer. NBs best beer in 12 oz bottles? label says 70 ibu."

Draft. Light amber. Small white head. The hopping on this IPA is more pine than citrus. This is actually a nice change as most IPAs seem to head towards grapefruit. The best beer in New Belguim’s stable. Blows Fat Tire out of the water.

Clear golden amber with a great frothy off-white head. Nicely hopped. Fruity. Citrus. Little spicy, some grass and light pine. Just enough malt. Dry. Quite bitter but not harsh. Smooth medium body. Plenty of character. Well made.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pine and earthy grass aroma. Off white average, never diminishing head. Straw in color. Good lacing. Full body. Earthy assertive bitterness initially. Finishing with strong hop flavor which has above average lingering affect. As with most craft beers it is most likely better on draft.

Taster at brewery. Pours golden with a thin white head. A bit of floral on the nose. Some toasted pine cone on the tongue. Finishes clean. It’s like drinking the Tour de Fall at 3/4 strength.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours gold with a small head.
Nose shows pineapple, super spicy hops, green pepper and a little sweet clean malt. Really interesting.
More green pepper and spicy, herbal hops as flavours. Nicely balanced by sweet clean malt.
