Bought this one on a whim. The store I was in, ran out of the "Better IPAs". I was supprised.
New Belgium delivers a real IPA, that is well balanced, hoppy enough and has the piney, citrus taste one expects from the west coast IPAs.
The body and hop prescence work really well.
I gave a poured pint to a friend who normally dishes on New Belgium, and he thought I gave him another Nor Cal IPA like RR IPA. He changed his toon.
Pours a brownish red with a white cake head. Retentions is very good and the balance and hop prescence are spot on.
It could have more hop bouquet but that is my only knock on this well made IPA. at >6% it is a good dont drive home after a 6 pack IPA.
