Had on tap.
Pours a clear light gold with a great head and head retention. Plenty of lacing as the drink progresses.
The aroma is very weak and disappointing. There is a minty and overripe fruit character that I don't really care for and it is just very one dimensional and shallow.
The flavor is a bit better but not much. More mintyness along with some overripe tropical fruit. Biscuit and that signature New Belgium taste that I assume is from the yeast. Moderate bitterness with a sticky finish.
Overall, I am not impressed at all with this effort. I don't care for the hop character and it is too sweet. Ranger is a much better beer.
Serving type: on-tap

13 oz bottle from Tipples. Pours a beautiful golden orange color with a fluffy white one finger head. Nice floral hop aroma , bready malts, citrus peel, grass, pine. Flavor is nice bitter pine, floral notes, lightly sweet bready malts. Body is medium to light, somewhat dry, bitterness on the tongue, with medium plus carbonation. This goes down very easy. A slight dirtiness on the finish is my only complaint, and it is very strange. But an otherwise solid DIPA that’s easy to find, and nice and light for the style. Just a weird flavor here and there that I can’t put my finger on.

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.
