yellow-gold with an eggshell-colored head. Aroma is pine, moderate flower-garden, some cirtus, very complex. As it warms, a dry cereal (bran) comes out. Medium bodied. Clean pine flavor with a bit of dry maltiness and some grapefruit. I think this is an excellent IPA, right up there below dogfishead 60 in terms of quality.

Double dry hopped cask at Churchkey. Gorgeous amber pour, fantastic thick frothy head. Nose holds big grapefruit, orange zest, and pine. Flavor holds more awesome blood orange and woody sweetness, along with earth and manure. Bitter but soft and approachable. Excellent.

Drunkenpanda (6) - Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2011 does not count
Poured from a 22oz. into a Sam Adams pint glass with tulip rim, soft amber with a thick head and standard lacing. Steady carbonation gave hints of resin, grass, and citrus aroma. Flavored by a strong rush of caramel, followed by grapefruit, then earthy grass remanents. Overall a pretty decent IPA.

A slightly above average IPA. A bit of a let down for New Belgium. I put this in the "everyone else has an IPA so should we" itís not a donít try but itís not a must try either.
