Enjoyed at the New Belgium pub at the Denver airport. This one is hot off the presses!!
A - golden, clear with lots of rising bubbles. Fluffy white head that hangs around and coats the glass with some chunky lacing.
S - nice, clean grassy hops nose; slight floral hints
T - nice subtle hops bitterness with a slightly resinous quality. Exceptionally smooth with just enough malt. Initial attack is a bit like a Pale but finishes like a subtle IPA.
M - this has an exceptionally creamy mouthfeel; medium bodied with just a hint of carbonation
D - easy and delicious fall drinking
I think this is my new favorite from New Belgium. It's a bit subtle but hits some great notes with the moderate hops and creaminess. Highly recommended.
Serving type: on-tap
