Crash_the_dog (152) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Good-looking golden orange body. Crystal clear with a soapy head, leaving lasting lacing. Nose is classic west coast IPA, albeit in a subdued form - citrus and pine in equal measures. Taste matches the nose, with a crisp mouthfeel. A very nice, if unspectacular, beer for the money... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fresh leafy aroma. Roasted nutty start and finish with plenty of leafy bitterness that doesnt over power anything. Great flavor!

Salmoniform (825) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 8, 2014
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.

TheJestersBeer (2112) - SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2014
Keg @ Tarantula Billiard, Denver. Deep gold, white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma, saffron (!), resin, grapefruit, grass. 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)

slowrunner77 (5804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
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."

MeisterD99 (27) - Lansing, USA - SEP 26, 2014
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.

beerbaaron (1278) - Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2014
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.

bpatrick01 (6) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2014 does not count
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.
