Notes / Commercial Description:
Skinny Dip is a full-bodied, figure-friendly tribute to the lightly attired summer months. This guilt-free lager’s frisky character and sunny flavor make it the perfect choice for kick-starting seductive summer fun. Lively Cascade hops and complementary peaches brighten a wash of bready malts with sunny citrus flavor and a slight fruity pucker, creating a crisp sip as invigorating as a frothy dip in a mountain pond. Shed your inhibitions this season and take the plunge: Grab a friend, go bottoms up, and share a Skinny Dip.

Skinny Dip makes its returns as the summer seasonal in 2015, and to celebrate we're supporting swimable waters by donating $1, up to $10,000, to Waterkeeper Alliance for every use of the hashtag #WaterkeeperDip. Post and donate!

Pours a light colored yellow with ample clarity, heavy carbonation and 1/2" white head. Aroma of nothing.

Taste gives you those happy its warming up spring notes, floral, high carbonation keeps it even more light on its feet. Tiny bit of lemon in there. Its a clean blonde ale, pretty much exactly as you expect, part palate cleanser, part segue from macro lagers.

Aged in the fridge for around 3 years (not by design). Still tasted crisp. Had a nice lemony and fruity smell, as well as with the taste plus some bread. Great summer drink. Works in the winter as well.
