12oz bottle poured into pint glass.
Bottle dated 10JUL11
A: Pours a perfectly clear golden straw color with a nice 2in. thick tight white cap of foam that lingered nicely.
S: Bright aromas of sweet candied fruits come through like apricot and mango. Pick up some biscuity malt notes and slight yeastiness.
T: Rich with sweet candied apricot, mango and a touch of pine. Considerable peppery hop bite across the palate. The 70IBU's are present and forward in this beer. Maltiness is nice and light but signature New Belgian biscuity flavors present.
M: Overall slightly sweet and nicely bittered. Finishes light and dry.
D: Very nice. A well balanced hop forward brew that finishes nice light, crisp and dry.
A really nice & affordable offering for IPA entusiast's by New Belgian which maintains that Biscuity malt flavor and aroma abundent in their Fat Tire. Not my personal favorite for the style but overall a well crafted brew with nice hoppiness. One of my favorite releases from NB thus far.
