BB 13/10/10 alc 6.5 Poured medium amber w/not much head or lacing. Crisp citrus (lime) nose. Pleasant hops bite on the tongue. Light body I get an orange sweetness in the center. Good crisp hop finish. Not much malt evident. Surprisingly complex, well crafted American style IPA. This joins my list of session beers 

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2010
12oz bottle, best by Sept 19, 2010 (bottled June 19?). I think this is right at one month old...pretty fresh. Pours crystal clear yellow, lightly amber with a two finger white head, leaves nice rings of lacing and holds a good foamy cap. Aroma is citrus and pine with a noticeable amount of yeast and bread. Average. Flavor is nice blend of citrus, pine, earthy/grassy hops, touch of sweet malt in the middle, fair bitterness on the finish. Doesnít really feel like 70 IBU. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick, medium carbonation. Solid IPA, nothing groundbreaking, but solid.

12oz bottle. Starts with a slightly sweet grapefruit taste deep in the palate but finishes with a strong dry, hoppy bite. Nice carbonated feel. Good IPA.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Beautiful golden color with lots of effervesence and a huge pure white head. Nose is all hops. Taste is hoppy with enought carbonation and fullness to make for a very enjoyable beer. Pairs well with corned beef on pumpernickel.

vulcanmeister (193) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Pours slightly translucent amber with an abundant frothy head. Aroma hints of resin and sweet malt. Flavor has a definite sweet malt with some roasted malt and a firm undercurrent of citrusy hops. Aftertaste hints of fruit and sweet toasted malt. Iím not really an IPA fan, but this is one civilized brew that I can enjoy.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
2010-07-01. Crisp golden yellow with a nice off-white head and great lace. 3+ Flavour is fairly bitter, leafy green hops, grassy notes with just a bit of astringency at times. Muted underlying malt, glimpses of grapefruit. 6+ Very grassy hop aroma. 6+ Smooth average palate. Decent but a bit one dimensional and simple. I would drink it again but not sure I would buy it again. On tap at Seattle International Beer Festival

A decent offering, well worth the money and iíd possibly get it again. Just didnít knock my socks off. not the most memorable IPA, but pretty damn good for it being new belgium. focus was on bitterness, but decent flavor and aroma.

[3078-20100702] Sample. Fresh evergreen Christmas tree hops aroma. Clear, orange yellow body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head and thick lacing. More evergreen in the flavour with hints of citrus lemon. Medium body. Nice hops, great evergreen profile.
