A- Pours a golden amber color with an off-white head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is pretty typical of an IPA with some citrusy hops and some malt in the background.

T- The taste like the aroma is highlighted by the hops bitterness in the finish with some malty sweetness up front.

M- The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, this is a pretty good IPA that is worth a try.

First time I had the occasion to drink this IPA. By the beach @ Myrtle Beach for vacation, this bacame my week long beer on hot august days by the see...
Shirt and sweet review:
First impression of this IPA: very good, but drinking it for the entire week, i do found it a bit thin, a bit more malt whould have boosted its backbone. Nevertheless, this IPA gave me what I've wanted. Crisp and sharp, bitter and not to long aftertaste so you do not ruine your palate after a few ones! Nose and flavor reminiscent of most IPAs tasted so far except a funky nose and taste of weed...
For my first New Belgium beer, I'm having a really good impression. Comming accross their other products, I'll give them a try...
