Skinny dip pours a bronze color with a nice small but lacing head. There is a mellow but still noticeable spice note. The taste is crisp and spicy, hints of pepper. Great feel, and nice strong flavors. Overall its a stronger spicier blonde ale.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/30/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, lime, orange peel, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops, spice, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, lime, orange peel, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light earthy/peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, lime, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, and light pepper on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of citrus hops, spice, and bready malt flavors; with a nice crisp hop/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Flavors are definitely on the light side, but it does not feel watery. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly dry mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice and pleasant blonde ale. Well balanced citrus hop, spice, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
