A- Yellow golden body, mostly clear with very small particles. Small white head. Very lively carbonation.

A- Belgian yeast aroma with bits of coriander? Cloves as well. Perhaps a mixture with some hefeweizen yeast. Perfumey grassy hops.

T- Grassy hops with a nice belgian flavored malt backing. Much of the nose is present in the flavor. Cloves come into play. Slightly spicy hit of alcohol.

M- Medium bodied beer, moderate to high carbonation. Very smooth.

D- This beer is delicious. I wish I could find it in a 6-pack. I found it in a 12-pack with four different types of New Belgium beer. It is definitely worth a try.

From notes, 4/29/11. Draft, City Beer Store. A very nice Belgian IPA. I rather like the Lips of Faith series. They mostly would make for excellent introductions to their various styles, since they’re friendly, enjoyable versions that still pack good flavor and some complexity. This isn’t quite competing with the best of the sub-style, but it’s nearly there and very good in its own right. Good citrus/grass/floral hop notes blend with Belgian yeastiness and a touch of earth. Taste is a bit sweet but finishes dry with a gentle bitter bite. A very pleasant beer and another win for New Belgium’s fancy line.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-pours a golden with a thick white head that dissipates somewhat quickly but leaves some great lacing the entire length of the glass.

S-floral, Belgian yeast, hoppy

T-tastes much like the nose with floral and citrus notes, Belgian yeast, a somewhat chalky aftertaste. It is light and refreshing but finishes very dry.

M-Somewhat thin with a good amount of carbonation

D-One could definitely drink a few of these in a session if they desired, but for me the dry finish cuts into the drinkability.

Overall, I'm not a huge fan of Belgian IPAs, however this one seemed middle of the road. I've had better offerings from New Belgium.
