A: Traffic light amber.

S: That familiar New Belgium yeast spiciness with a dose of syrup sweetness.

T: A confusion of hops, residual sugars, and heatless chilies.

M: The hops pull the moisture out of the mouth, the sugars coat the tongue, and the small amount of capsaicin finds its way to the back of the throat.

O: What a disappointment. The Lips of Faith series is worth following despite there perhaps being more hits than misses. The familiar base is there but there's nothing interesting to wrap it in.

A - Poured golden, with a white two figure head.
S - Dried fruit, yeast and spice, citrus.
T - Fruit and sweet upfront with a warming chili flavor. Noticing wood flavors as well.
M - Medium body and carbonation with a smooth finish.
O - Interesting idea and I expected more heat; It was good, I just expected more.
