Leftovers from a party we hosted. Hopeful this beer isn't as bad as it reputation labels it to be. Trying not to let this get to me, but it might factor in subconsciously (could benefit the beer though). Poured into a pint.
Freshness date March 2014.
Questionable move producing a white IPA as a winter beer but here we go...
A&S: Good head, pours about a finger and hangs around in a foamy half finger layer that has a nice cling in the thick lacing. Semi-lively transparent very pale yellow colored beer. Aroma consists: of spicy hops, bready pale malts, a slight lemongrass tone.
T&M: Spicy hops dominate the taste as well as they did in the smell. Midway through there is a pretty substantial boast of grapefruit tones accompanied by grassy tones. Pretty smooth, carbonation has a bite, but doesn't get too intense. Very easy to drink.
Overall: I have to say, not as bad as I expected it to. I still question the move by new belgium to release this beer as a winter seasonal, it seems to be more fitting as a spring time or very early summer beer. One of the more solid beers from new belgium, I still wish they didn't do away with snow day. Idk to each there own. Wouldn't buy this beer (unless on some-kind-of super sale), but wouldn't turn it down.
Serving type: bottle
