Poured a bit chunky, as it has been in the fridge for a bit. The nose is a mix of astringent hops, something wet ( which I can’t quite identify) and alcohol. Flavor is mild, and not offending, if only it had a better smell. It does have that 7.5% ABV going for it.
Though a big fan of most of New Belgium’s Lips of Faith series of beers, I find their core lineup of beers pretty boring. I was hoping for a pleasant surprise, but it fell short.
