Poured from a bomber into a New Belgium tulip. You know it's a good ipa when you get a whiff on pouring. Nice slightly off white head with good retention and very good lacing. It seems to coat the inside of the glass. Clear slightly burnt orange color. Looks like an ipa.
Smell is really nice. Malty slightly hoppy sweet. Orange tangerine seem to dominate.
I really like the taste. Citrus hops to start with a muted orange slice candy taste in the middle and a lingering citrus hop finish. Very different from the ipas I usually like. It doesn't whack you in the head with hops but it is a really good different taste. The alcohol is very well hidden but certainly there.
Mouthfeel is very good. Oily hops and good carbonation. A perfect match to the taste.
Overall this is my favorite New Belgium beer. I really like the taste and mouthfeel. It's a very different but great ipa.
