Misc.: Collaboration with New Belgium

Poured a honey, golden, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki, white, rocky head when I got it. Serene setting underneath the head. Semi-layered spotty, spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Above average retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled skunky resin hops, Citra hops, floral hops, caramel, nectarine, nectarine rind, a tad earthy and pungent grapefruit. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted booziness right away. Also mango, orange juice, tropical hops, caramel, rubbing alcohol, sharp tangerine, vegetables and floral hops late. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter, somewhat astringent finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This beer had its’ moments, but not one of the top Alpine IPA’s I’ve had. (I know it was a collaboration). Still decent though. (Overall - 3.75)
