look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A – Pours a deep gold and crystal clear, with a one finger head of white compact bubbles lasting to some extent until the beer was finshed. Nice lattice-like lacing.

S – Lots of west coast hops. Strong aroma. A little citrus as well.

T – Definitely a hoppy IPA with resinous, oily hops kicking things off but with some toasted doughy malt giving balance and backbone in the middle, then ending with lingering hop bitterness. Hops manage to be very present in the flavor profile and slightly mild in overall taste at the same time. Enjoyable.

M – Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Almost a creamy feel with a wet finish and opposed to the dry finish that is trendy in the style, and thicker than many IPA’s I have sampled. Works nicely.

O – A solid representation of the style from New Belgium Brewing, and I really enjoyed it. Nothing spectacular, but no real flaws either. The mouthfeel of this one bears mentioning again, as it’s superb. I’ll probably be getting this again when I want a smooth drinking IPA with some mild hop zing.
