This appeared at my local Safeway. Ive had the Fat Tire lots of times, so I tried it. First response: this is a M.F. Very hoppy. I like it better than Fat Tire. My current favorites besides this are Torpedo and Lagunitas IPA, which also really hoppy. I must have a hops imbalance in my bloodstream and this is making up for it.

Draft at Taco Mac. Pours hazy orange with thin white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste is grassy hops and grapefruit. Smooth and easy drinking. One of my new favorite IPAs. Very good.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2010
22oz. Bottle (from trade with phaleslu): Faint aroma of hops, slight grain, and crystal malt. Poured gold/amber in color with a small to medium-sized, creamy, rocky, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, and crystal malt. Medium body. Tingly, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly bitter, slightly sweet, crystal malt and hop finish is a bit dry.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Pours a copper golden color with bright white head. Aroma is reminiscent of a mango pine tree. Sweet fruity flavors of mango, pine, and the finish is a little short.

Shakesbeere (212) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2010 12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold. A promising aroma. Smells of hops , citrus, and pine. Taste is bitter -- a lot of hops with some pine flavor. A minimal citrus flavor. Overall, the taste is not very complex. Palate is smooth. A fine brew, but not the best ipa.

haddon90 (1423) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Clear, light copper pour with a decent frothy head. Nice earthy hoppy aroma. Strong citrus notes in the flavor, as well as a good kick of hops. A different beer for New Belgium. I like it!

Bottle - I like it. A nicely hopped IPA. Not too aggressive but - that signature hop pallete is there. It has that signature New Belgium flavor to it - if that makes sense. Theres a malty quality too - similar to what I taste in the Fat Tire. Its a good solid IPA. Id buy it again.

BenDover (201) - Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Pours a yellow/orange, a bit lighter than most IPAs, also fairly transparent, with a good bit of dense white foam. Aroma of hops and citrus fruit, and strangely, just a bit of a burnt kind of smell, maybe roasty malts or something. Taste is hops, grassy/wheaty, not as complex as Id like but not bad at all.

Rich amber color with white frothy head that disappears a bit too quickly. Mild hoppy aroma. Well balanced hoppy profile that is flavorful without being too bitter. Very enjoyable IPA.
