It's been quite a long time since I've had anything from New Belgium. Oh. I did have that Abbey on-tap not too long ago. Okay. It's been quite a long time since I've had anything from New Belgium, on bottles.

Slightly floral and silky ipa. Leans forward with some perfume tones and fairly clear floral character. Salty pine body seems to dominate the scene. It's got a good consistent profile and an even flavor. I can dig it. As I tend to say with so many other beers: this might be interesting on cask.

Serving type: bottle

Poured into a pint glass, color is copper with a great fluffy off white to light tan head that sticks and laces well.

Smell is piney, lightly fruity with an undertone of pale malt with a light toastiness.

Taste is very resinous and piney, but not over sweet; there is mild malt flavor but the piney hops are up front with some citrusy undertones.

Mouthfeel is a little spicy and biting but expected for this type of ipa - it does not take away from the taste. Presence is lightly sweet but the bitterness comes through.

Overall, another great tasting brew from NB - just solid hop flavors and malt balance.

Serving type: bottle
