Pours a clear, straw color. One inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of earthy malt, floral hops, hint of sweet malt, slight yeast, hint of pine, slight citrus hops, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a strong bitterness. Tastes of earthy malt, citrus hops, slight pine, hint of sweet malt, alcohol, and a hint of yeast. Overall, very pale appearance, great lacing, good blend, but too much earthy malt for my taste.

A - cloudy yellowish in a goblet glass, a little like apple cider.

S - citrusy and hoppy

T - marketed as a winter white IPA, but tastes more like a summer brew. Strong hops flavor but not overpowering.

M - nice aftertaste due to the smooth hoppy flavor.

I picked up a 6 of this last winter and forgot about it until 5 months later.. Nice mix of hops and fruit with a fairly high ABA. I'm impressed with New Belgium's IPA offerings and look forward to sampling more.
