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.

Good citrus hop aroma. Has a light bitterness but kind of flat on flavor. Iím getting like a soda water flavor.

4oz draft from Hanger 9 in a flight. Pours a clear, light orange with 1 finger of white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste is medium bitter. Tastes like piney hops. Medium bodied with a slick yet creamy texture. Average carbonation with a long bitter finish. Overall, very good. Definitely something to drink again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is very hoppy with citrus, pine, and grassy hops. The malt is sweet and robust but not in balance. The appearance is deep gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and very bitter. The palate is smooth. Overall a well crafted beer but also very bitter and almost strong enough to be an imperial.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours from a bottle into a pilsner glass a hazy orange with a thick, frothy lasting head, with a faint but pleasant odor of bitterness and hints of fruit. Understated hoppy flavor with undertones of grapefruit and pine; thin and light in the mouth with a slightly bitter, carbonated finish. Overall good and easy to drink.
