Dont judge a book by its cover. The olive green and dookie brown lable detered me for the longest till I actually tried it and I was amazed. Its for sure one of my top IPAs that I enjoy drinking. This is not for the weak but for those of us who enjoy quality, you wont regret it.

This is a solid, easy to drink IPA. Golden pour into a New Belgium goblet, the fragrant, citrusy northwest hop aromas hit right away. A fair portion of hop bitterness without too much balance, so no real concession to the non-hopheads. Ive seen better looking beers, and it seemed a little light on the body for my personal preferences. Regardless, at 6.5% ABV this is a quality rendition of the style at a pretty reasonable price.

Pours clear golden with a creamy off-wite head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus and grape hops. Taste is light sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long fruity bitter finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

onceblind (8200) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2011
On tap at New Belgium Brewery. Dark gold with a medium laceful head. Very resinous aroma, pine, some grapefruit, but definitely piney. Hops are both bittering and flavorful. Pretty intense brew for 70 IBU. Very resinous and piney with some floral flavors shining through. Quite hoptastic. Just too imbalanced for me to really enjoy.

iugrad93 (265) - Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Pours a clear copper color with white, soapy head and tons of lacing. Aromas of pine, grass, and citrus. Taste is light sweetness, some sourness and bitter on the back end. Medium bodied with a dry bitter finish as with most IPAs. Overall, this is a nice session beer that is true to its style. But nothing that makes it stand out and say wow.

a blueprint of a session IPA! copper colour, huge hoppy arome with hints of oranges. Very balanced, cascade stand a bit out. This 6-pack went down fast! very nice

Shag (2881) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2011
This poured a copper color with a white head. Aroma is pine, perfume, citrus, and a hint of caramel. The flavor is bitter but well balanced. Oranges and grapefruit stand out. A hint of sweetness as well. Overall a well done IPA.

For a mainstream ipa this one is very charming, excellent hop flavors up front with a light bitterness allowing the malt bill to shine. Loving it.

Poured on draught into a shaker at Trappeze in Athens, GA. This poured pale straw-yellow and gently laced the glass. Aromas of grassy hops combine with sweet malty flavors to make this is good but not great American ipa. Tasty, and definitely something I would drink again, but not something I would seek out in preference to other interpretations of the style.
