New Belgium Brewing - Lips Of Faith Series: Cigar City Brewing X New Belgium [Ale Brewed With Anaheim And Marash Chilies] (22oz ---> Stemless wine glass : 8.5% ABV)

Many "LOF" brews have caught my eye, but this is the first one that I've come across that nobody I immediately know has tried... It poured a medium looking body with a exuberant orange hue and brilliant clarity, also producing a nice rocky 1.5 inch head... A decent amount of carbonation helps the head retain a decent cap as is dissipates, leaving a solid amount of lacing just from the head... A light hoppy note is the first to introduce itself with the spiciness close behind... Boasting a small amount of earthiness also, but no one aroma jumps into the spotlight... Immediately the spiciness hits the palette accompanied by a sweetness as well as a decent amount of carbonation... Midway it develops some smoky, almost nutty characteristics with a nice bitterness keeping my palette on it's toes... The finish is bold, with an almost creamy mouthfeel, all adding to a very well rounded brew... The spice I assumed this beer would have is definitely there, but is very well balanced by the sweetness and (mostly woody) earthiness... It lacks an intrinsic complexity I assumed all LOF series brew would possess, but in this case, "less is more" was classfully pulled off in this delightful ale... Another good brew - Cheers!!

Solid beer with good malt backbone and nice, but somewhat subdue citrus hops. Chilies are subtle but detectable without adding much in the way of intense heat. Great with Indian food.
