Nice looking pour, medium golden body with small soapy head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, but also hints at the malts. Taste is more hops, very subdued, some sweet malt. Hops finish it off with some chalky bitterness.

355 ml can, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.5%. Clear golden colour, moderate white head. Fresh hoppy aroma of pine needles and spruce tips, hints of newmown grass and tropical fruits. Light bodied. Dry flavour with distinct bittering hops throughout, also piney and fruity notes. Bitter aftertaste.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-golden yellow color with a slight transparency about it. Some carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace to fill a semi-foamy white head. Dissipated nicely to leave some stringy sliding lace.
The aroma had some sweet to bitter onion bits, light danky grass, and a little bit of citrus, pine and biscuits.
The flavor was a fine blend of the sweet to bitter to dank pulling together the onion, citrus, pine and biscuits. Aftertaste of the danky onion, pine and biscuits.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation felt appropriate and non-distracting. Somewhat oily in the texture. ABV felt as projected, somewhat low and quaint.
Overall, what does UPS say "if it fits, it ships." Damn right it does, good job New Belgium for shipping a "quality" session IPA to the East Coast.

Pours a pretty nice amber color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy/foamy white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.
