It's been quite a long time since I've had anything from New Belgium. Oh. I did have that Abbey on-tap not too long ago. Okay. It's been quite a long time since I've had anything from New Belgium, on bottles.

Slightly floral and silky ipa. Leans forward with some perfume tones and fairly clear floral character. Salty pine body seems to dominate the scene. It's got a good consistent profile and an even flavor. I can dig it. As I tend to say with so many other beers: this might be interesting on cask.
