look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

I found this beer in a folly pack at the grocery store. Review is based off of 12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A- Somewhere between light amber, burnt orange, and copper. Thin head with web-like lacing and poor retention.

S- Smells of grapefruit, orange and pine. No traditional "pine-y" scented hop characteristics.

T- Here, there is a pronounced pine taste, along with citrus and a little bit of pineapple. The hoppy early palate gives way to a malty sweet finish, more so than the typical American Pale Ale IMO.

M- Medium-light body, seems to lack bubbly/effervescent character. On the plus side, does not have that "gritty" feel of sediment, very clean.

D- Well above average. Although not my first choice, a solid pale ale and a quite drinkable one.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle, with best by date June 15, 2014 printed on the label. Another new beer to me from New Belgium, acquired as part of the spring folly pack.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a brassy golden orange colored body with excellent clarity and two fingers of fluffy white head. Nice stringy scattered lacing. Looks very nice.

S - Smell is of bready biscuit malts and some pungent grapefruit / pine / citrus hop presence. Subtle peppery yeast presence also noticeable. A tame, but pleasant aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready honeyed malt paired with a light earthy / piney / grapefruit hop bitterness. Lightly grainy. Nicely balanced. No alcohol detectable.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, and clean. Light honeyed breadiness lingering on the palate. Lightly sticky. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a very nice easy drinking pale ale from New Belgium. Nicely balanced, with a well-hidden, moderate 6.00% abv. Nothing spectacular or groundbreaking here, but it is good solid drinking.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Clear gold color, small white head but nicely bubbly with some sticky lace. Aroma is lightly sweet, saltine crackers, soft floral hop, hint of pilsener-like spice, bread dough, and a smidge of lemon. Flavor is very similar. No surprises. Mouthfeel is smooth, lightly resinous and a weeee bit syrupy over a light body. Bitterness is light but does exist just enough for some added excitement. Not bad. Nice clean flavors.
