12oz bottle. I would consider this a crossover IPA. This is the IPA that I would tell a friend to try who doesnt care for IPAs in an attempt to enlighten them to how great this style can be. Super smooth but with a nice little bite. Hop character is real nice, medium bitterness and a lingering aftertaste that I have no problem with. I could kill several of these easy. If youve never had an IPA before, or one that you liked, give this one a try. You might just have an epiphany....

Pours a clear yellow with relatively thin head. Some grassiness in the aroma and in the flavor, along with the usual citrus and pine flavors. Has a very dry finish that complements the whole package quite well. One of the better IPAs out there.

gsteph (324) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Pours a watered-down iced tea color. Very clear. Super pillowy, white head. Looks like marshmallow cream....and just as sticky. Aroma is slightly funky but for the most part it is very clean. Pine, grapefruit and herbs are prevalent in the nose. Grassy flavor, grapefruit pith and pine juice flavors are strong and fresh. Super hoppy. I would like to see more malt. Medium body with a lingering pine aftertaste. It is also a little dry. This is by far the best New Belgium Ive had. Superior quality vs. their grocery store line.

I like the few beers Ive tried from New Belgium, but this one is the best Ive had. The aroma is very clean with hints of grass in the hops. The flavor is nice and hoppy and the aftertaste is delightful as well.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
Pours a crystal-clear gold with a half-finger head and great lacing. Aroma is grainy and floral, lightly bitter. Strong, slightly grassy pilsener malt taste, more floral and bitter hops - spicy, even. Nice warm bite to the finish. Creamy, thick body, crisp carbonation. Very nice!

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Does the job but the simcoes dont seem to shine above the other leafy hops and it has a rather dry citrus overtone with a bitter asparagus like tone in the end. Nice to see beers like this everywhere on the East coast of N.C..

williamherbert (1525) - Syracuse, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Aroma is sweet pine-oil, with just a touch of oak. Touch of cooked veggie, but not bad. Very pale malts. The appearance is beautiful copper gold, one finger of white head; head retains a slushy character. The flavor is piney hops, again, some sweet bready malts. Grassy flavors; very balanced. Of the two flavors, the spice really lasts. The palate is gritty and creamy, works with the flavor. The hops of an American IPA, the malt of an English bitter.

jlieber17 (201) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 25, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours a golden amber with white head; good lacing. Aroma is pine and mango. Good citrusy bitterness which is also present in lingering aftertaste. Considering the price, this isnt a bad beer.

Pours a clear amber with great carbonation. Tall, foamy head and fruity hops aroma. Large hops taste, mostly fruit and citrus on top of a carmel malt base.
