12 oz. bottle from Randall’s. Pours a clear, deep gold color with a thin white head. Aroma of floral, herbal hops, honey, citrus peel, and mild spices. Flavor of floral and herbal hops, pale malts, honey, spices, citrus peel, and corn flakes. Light-bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a spicy, sweet, and fizzy mouthfeel. Good APA, and interesting. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2009

This light amber ale poured with a fluffy off-white head and an intense floral aroma. The flavor is chock full of citrus floating upon a solid caramel malt base. Quite refreshing and fairly tasty. onceblind (10862) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Sampled at Denver Winter Brewfest 2011. Clear light amber in color with sweet flowery grassy hop aroma. Taste profile is typical of a pale, but watered down somehow. A bit too floral and bitter and lacking body. A big fat "meh" DuffMan (10751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden, foamy white head that leaves some delicate lace. Nice pine and grapefruit hop aroma. Light malts, generously hopped with flavours of grapefruit rind and light pine, light in the body despite the 6%. Very good.

Tap @ brewery. Golden yellow orange appearance with a white head that disappears pretty quickly. Bushy hoppy nose. Pretty bitter hoppy flavor. The hoppiness is a mild bushy, piney flavor. Pretty mild yet refreshing IPA. sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2009

Props to New Belgium. Finally an APA that stands out.
Pours a golden/copper with thick off-white head.
Aroma of herbal/grassy hops.and some citrus notes.
Taste, floral hoppy with thick mouthfeel light sweet honey malts and spices. Some pale malts and tittering fruit notes of grapefruit and some citrus. Overall it remains rather sweet and extremely drinkable.
This is one fine beer, well balanced between the hops and the sweetness.
