I had a hard time locating a good brew for this evening and i realized i have never picked up this beer. I am very suspect of this brewery seeing that i feel they are very over rated. I love Imperial beers and especially ipa's. I cracked open the bottle and it had a very nice resiny smell to it and i found myself not so Leary of this beer. It has a very piney,earthy no so tropical fruit smell to it which is fine but i do prefer the fruity IPA's myself. The taste was good but not great, it reminded me of a tame Six Point Resin with its very piney, grassy bitter notes..The mouth feel was pretty good, it seemed to coat my mouth gently and it went down very smooth. Overall this was a pretty decent beer by New Belgium and i would probably drink this again if i were in a bind and could find none of my favorites or beers on my to drink list.

12oz bottle (best by 3/30/14) into tulip. bright white 2 finger head took time to settle. color is clear golden
aroma has some grapefruit, floral, pine
taste starts of with some hops balanced by a good amount of malty sweetness. grapefruit, peaches, blood orange. alcohol is well hidden, slighlty bitter finish
mouthfeel is great, smooth medium body, carb is on the lower side of medium, dry finish. definitely drinkable given the abv
overall - ive been wanting to try this for a while and finally picked it up in a mix-a-six. not sure how fresh it (based on the best by date) but still drinking good, would like to revist when I'm sure it's more fresh
