Poured from bottle into New Belgium globe glass.
A: Glowing amber with soapy head and nice lacing. Not much carbonation apparent.
S: Nose is exactly what I was hoping for from a New Belgium IPA, definitely has the distinct New Belgium quality. I still found the nose somewhat lacking overall for an IPA however.
T & M: Mouthfeel just slightly thin, . Malt base is there but the bitterness is dominant. Hop notes are quite fruity and the bitterness lingers on the tongue.
D: I was really looking forward to this beer to get New Belgium's take on an IPA. I was slightly let down as I just thought it would be a little more unique.
Serving type: bottle
