2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bomber. Clear amber gold with a tall rocky head. Upfront attractive hop scents of citrus, spice and pine… against a backdrop of dry dog food, marigold, tea, oily burlap and roasted corn. Clean, sharp citric hop flavor followed by toasty malt, then a damning combination of biscuit and honey malts (which taste nothing at all like biscuits or honey) and burnt circuit boards. Estery with "sweet" alcohol, diesel and "train track" taste. Faint aura of crusty sunbleached dogshit. Fullish creamy body, more oily than syrupy. Tarry and vegetal finish with lingering rough Chinook bitterness, and house fire and eucalyptus aftertaste. I love IPAs but holy fuck, this is messed up.

Aroma of very fresh hops, earth, flowers, citrus, caramel backbone. The appearance is clear amber, white head. The flavor is floral hops, grapefruit, some caramel, malt. Definitely hop forward. The finish is flowers, citrus, grapefruit. Medium in body. Nice beer overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh hop aromas, grass, citrus, pine resin, light peachy stone fruit, some bread and caramel. Clear orange with a mostly fading white head. Dry, bitter hops with a simple, bolstering malt structure. Light-medium bodied, crisp, clean, quite refreshing, some sticky, lingering piney hops.

Really good, easy drinking IPA. Props to New Belgium for putting an easy to read date on their bottles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is citrus hops with hints of clove. Taste is a distinct bitterness that is perfectly balanced and finishes exceptionally smoothly. Sweet maltiness manages to present itself through the bitterness which is impressive. Appearance is a clear gold body with a lace head that retains well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle promised citrus and pine and I am getting 1/2 of the deal out of this bottle. Aroma of hops and pine. Drinking out of the bottle. Taste of hops (cascade hops are very prominent here, and even though Fat Tire is just as mass produced as brands like Keiths it blows their piss attempt at using cascade hops out of the water), also strong notes of pine and some floral notes. I am getting almost no citrus whatsoever, but the flavors that are here are well balanced and tasty and pretty much make up for it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks cards04 for this one. Light apple amber colour with foamy white head and nice lacing. Slight citrus hop aroma. Taste is sweet malty with a touch of bitter hop aftertaste. Lightish palate. A starter IPA, but a decent one.

12oz bottle. Not a fan of IPAs. This isn’t horrible but not my favorite. Nice floral scent and taste but it’s a little too hoppy on the finish for me.
