markwise (5348) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2010
On draft at Taco Macs. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Nose is malt, some grain, some slight citrus and pine. Flavor is similar with small malt character and a bit of pine and citrus. Mild, standard IPA- good starter beer, a bit potent for a session beer. I would have never known it was a 6.5% beer.

This is a good IPA. Its just nothing super special, although above average. Good hop aroma and pleasant bitterness. Relatively dry so its easy drinking.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2010
[Tap] Pours a light amber color with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma of pine, some bread and grains. Hightly bitter/hoppy taste. Subtle malty backbone of caramel malts and some fruits. Lingering bitter finish. Average body and carbonation. Pretty good, but an ordinary IPA.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 26, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle. A - Quite clear and crisp looking copper color. Pretty large, rocky, foamy, sticky, soapy white head. Good retention leaving a sticky, foamy layer of lace. S - A lot of fruity/citrus hops with grapefruit, mango, orange, and a touch of tropical fruitiness. Some lemony and spicy aromas as well. Some pale malt in the background. A hint of resin/pine aroma, but citrus dominates the nose. T - Similar to the nose, but with a bit less citrus and a bit more herbal hop flavors. Citrus hops are still strong and pretty dominant. Some pale malt in the background and a buttery flavors. Fairly bitter tasting and it lingers. M - Medium body with just above average carbonation. Kind of crisp and zesty feel. D - Pretty drinkable IPA with a pretty bitter taste that lingers. Good body and a nice taste, but nothing outstanding. Notes: A good IPA, but nothing outstanding. Good amount of citrus with some pine and herbal flavors in the taste. Fairly bitter tasting IPA. Enjoyable, but nothing world beating.

OzarkElmo (317) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Pours a mostly clear light amber with moderate head and good lacing. Pine, floral, citrus on the nose. Well balanced and lighter on the malt, which is fine with me in an IPA. Good dry finish. Good offering from New Belgium.

keepersj12 (3083) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Clear yellow with a creamy lasting head. Citrus and pine and some spring flowers, grass, I dont know. Flavor is quite balanced with a sweetness up front and a very nice hop bitterness to follow. Very nice after taste.

degbert (1763) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Poured from bottle. Strong floral and resinous nose. Pours a dark gold with a huge head that just sits there and does not go away. A lot of citrus on the palate; strong lime and grapefruit leads into a touch of malt then closes with an astringent bitterness. Good feel on the tongue. Nice.

This is a great-tasting IPA. At 70 IBUs, its quite hoppy, but very well balanced. Wonderful.
