Appearance: Skinny Dip pours a rusty orangish-brown color. The tall head is not fluffy, it's more solid than that.
Smell: The aroma indicates a good amount of malt for a blonde ale and a touch of hops.
Taste: That signature New Belgium toasty, biscuity malt dominates the taste, producing a crusty bread quality. Hops are present but not prominent.
Mouthfeel: Skinny Dip has a heartier body than expected for the style, and is a tad rough on the way down.
Drinkability: This makes a good summer beer that is meant to consume multiples of, but also is not lacking in substance.
Notes: I found Skinny Dip to be similar to New Belgium's polarizing flagship beer, Fat Tire. One could easily mistake Skinny Dip for Fat Tire if they weren't paying attention. That's not a problem since I'm in the camp that says Fat Tire is a decent beer. In fact, Skinny Dip might be a slightly better beer overall because it contains the positive attributes of Fat Tire while having a higher drinkability.
