3.8/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Pours a pale golden color with a one inch white head. Body has a slight haze and a good amount of effervescence. Lacing and head retention are above average.
Smell is of lemongrass, citrus rind, belgian yeast found in trippels. Light piney hops linger through out. Aromas are similar to a shandy.
Taste is light and refreshing. A light lemon peel bitterness solidifies that this beer is an IPA. Pale straw malts lighten the flavor and at 6 percent, alcohol is slightly there.
Mouthfeel is also light and well carbonated. Head dissipated halfway through unfortunately,
Overall this beer is a good APA/IPA but im really puzzled as to why New Belgium chose to brew this as a Winter Seasonal. 2 below and Snow Day were some of my favorite winter seasonals and to replace them with a lighter bodied/flavored pale ale is unfortunate. Would have preferred to see this one as a summer seasonal but its still a solid beer.
