New Belgium products are suddenly everywhere in the greater DC area.

A-Very nice looking IPA; nice thick cap with tons of chunky lacing that floats above a nearly clear, amber colored ale with no visible carbonation.

S-Grapefruit and pine, with some grass and a pinch of malt.

T-Like it smells! Not complex, but tasty and a super value.

M-Very mild fizz and not much heat, which leaves this as a slick ale that is more than refreshing and might be nice paired with fish & chips.

O-I'd buy it again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a 12 ounce Pint style tumbler, nice golden tawny hue, dense head 1 finger thick,

Nice piney aroma right off the bat, some citrus, Cascade and Chinook are right up front where they are supposed to be. I think one of the most aromatic American IPAs i have had.

Nice crisp attack, the piney, almost juniper across the palate, with a dry hoppy finish. It doesn't overwhelm the malt either.

Hoppy finish, with a beautiful original taste and feel.

Overall, I would definitely keep this on hand, and will look for it in the future.
