Amazing hop aromas. Flavor is full of bitter hops. It definitely tastes fresh but I'm sure what date it was produced. Color is pure gold and mine had a nice pure white head.

Biased review here as I was having a beer brewed in 2013 (2 years old) and I can imagine that the hops had diminished significantly. I'll try to pick up a younger bottle and re-review to provide tasting differences

Look: This beer was relatively clear wtih a good 2 finger head.

Smell: Slight hop aroma present, nothing distinguishing to note

Taste: Balanced which is not what I was looking for. I was hoping for some grassy fresh hops to shine through on this beer and it just wasn't the case. We were comparing to another APA side by side with this one which was Draught fresh brewed on premises. you could tell the difference in freshness right away. Some major oxidation was present in the tail end which was to be expected given the age.

Feel: a bit thick which I didn't really care for.

Overall: I've got to try a fresh beer. Having this beer in Norway, I don't know what conditions it was exposed to on its route. This was the last bottle at a beer bar, so I know it was kept well by the bar prior to serving it to us.

Handsome yellow color with plenty of foam in the New Belgium snifter. Sudsy mouthfeel with loads of carbonation.

Weedy, dank, and herbal. Not overly bitter, but plenty of the resiny stuff. LIght body, fizzy, and fresh tasting. Some slight maltiness with a bitter tang for the finish.

This is the lighter version of the dank IPA. A decent quaff. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Victoria Market in San Clemente.
