Poured on tap at Life of Riley in PDX. I am hit or miss usually with New Belgium, but this was a good beer. Nice amber color, with 1 finger head. Found the smell to be a grassy pine scent...the taste was the same. Not overly hoppy, but a decent balance with the rest. Good carbonated beer, that seemed very fresh. Enjoyed thisa lot

Pours a clear light amber with good amount of off white head and good retention. Aroma is hoppy with citrus peachy, and herbal notes. Taste follows with some grainy notes in the background. Mouthfeel is puckering. Overall a fine beer. A read on the low end for an imperial I think though.

12 oz. bottle poured into nonic pint
A-Poured with a nice finger of bubbles which took their time dissipating. Crystal clear, golden in color.
S-Orange, pine and some floral notes.
T-Fairly bitter with some of the same characteristics of the smell. However, it felt more bitter than flavorful. I think the hop character was lost in this one (it wasn't clear on bottle, but this might've been sitting around for a while).
M-Nice medium-full body with adequate carbonation and lingering bitterness.
O-Not quite as good as I remember it. However, still not a bad drinking bigger IPA in a six. The bang-for-your-buck factor is certainly there. I might review again one day and see if I can get one a little fresher.
