Citrusy, resiny, kind of catty. Very clear, light copper, foam dissipates pretty quickly. Fairly thin bodied, not much depth. Not a great IPA.

Beautiful color and aroma. Easy to drink while retaining its high hop qualities. One of New Belgiums better offerings. http://beerhatesme.blogspot.com/2011/02/new-belgiu

ContemplateBeer (2052) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Aroma of big pine/citrus hops, sweet caramel, white sugar and a tough of tart apple. Appearance of tinted gold with beautiful foamy white head of about an inch. Flavor was a letdown- the caramel aroma did not translate into a malt backbone, and the hops were pretty much the whole show. The mouthfeel was thin and the palate was lightly bubbly. I expected a little more here, especially after the nice start.

Bottle. Bouquet of hop greatness off the nose. Lots of citrus and plenty of pine. Taste is bitter citrus and pine. Some nice lemon and a hint of spice in there too. Very good. I would by this all the time if I could.

Beautiful white head offset by its orange-golden hue. The medley of hops brings out a rich pine/citrus -like aroma while dancing merrily in your palate. Definitely my go to beer when its available in 12 ers. Ive had it on draft &in bottle. Draft, of course, cannot be equaled!

Bottle @ hotelroom, Denver. Pours golden with a nice fluffy head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, kiwi. Taste much like aroma, though abit sweeter, nice bitter finish tho. Medium body, soft carbonation. 180211

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - FEB 18, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a clear pale orangish yellow with a large white puffy head, and good lacing. Smell is of grapefruit, hops, malt, floral notes, and some caramel. Taste is smooth with citrus, piney hops, and dandelion. Ends a little tangy on the tongue and nicely bitter. Has session IPA written all over it, with the taste to back it up.

Beerman6686 (6543) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2011
This poured a cloudy orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of lots of piney resinous hops, light citrus and caramel too. Flavor was bright piney hops upfront, but followed by a somewhat hollow stale malty finish. Lacking a bit.

mctous (131) - Herndon, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2011
A citrus hop aroma invites further exploration, along with pronounced hop lace. The flavor is very gentle for 70 IBUs, with plenty of resin, pine, and citrus notes and a light malt sweetness with almost no yeast artifacts. The hop resins create an oily/sticky texture offset by abundant carbonation. Overall a full-bodied, clean, and well-balanced IPA.

Pretty decent IPA with a subtle bitter taste. Has a carbonated kick to it...
