Happy to find a six pack of this in our local store; hadn't tried before.
Glass bottle poured into pint glass.
Gold with slight orange tint; 1/2 foam, good lacing.
Smells appealing, rich, boozy without harsh alcohol smell
Great hop flavor and surprisingly smooth for alcohol content; well done. I am not a huge fan of New Belgium's Fat Tire and so wasn't sure if the IPA would have a familiar taste note, but would not have guessed this was New Belgium.
Rich feel and holds up well. Mouth feels a little coated at the end.
Overall I was very happy and impressed with this. I'll admit I haven't tried too many offerings from New Belgium other than Fat Tire and I will have to give them another look, this was very good and enjoyable. Almost 'too rich' (hence, the 'Imperial' IPA) for just having with dinner or while watching a game; more of a destination beer than I was expecting. looking forward to trying the Ranger now.
