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!

Finally a seasonal from New Belgium that isn't hop-focused! This is basically just a lighter version of Fat Tire, really, but in the summer there's nothing wrong with that. You get more of the malt flavor than anything, with just a bit of hop bitterness mixed in but not enough to dominate. And at 4.2% ABV, you can enjoy a few of these without much trouble if you're having a relaxing evening at home. This is one of their better seasonals.

This lager had a nice golden amber look to it with a perfect white head. Had a malty smell with a hint of citrus. It only had a malt taste to it, no citrus taste as hinted in the smell.

16oz. draft at Blue Pete's in Sandbridge (Va. Beach) Virginia.

A- a nice light amber, clear, and a rather impressive bright white head that's almost nitro dense.

S- Not much. Lager malt, some pale malt. Maybe a bit of citric hops

T- Light. Again, not much going on. Some light citrus and peach. Odd metallic aftertaste.

M- It's a lager. Crisp, slightly dry on the finish.

O- it wasn't bad, but it just didn't do it for me.

Wasn't expcting much out of this one but was pleasantly surprised. Nose is fantastic. Malt, citrus, stone fruits, and floral hops. Touch of peach on the pallet makes this a very enjoyable Summer beer. I would definitely drink more of this.

Draft. Pint. Nothing special. Not a lot of flavor. Just sort of there as an IPA. Maybe I have a head cold.
