New Belgium Hoppy Bock

CIMG7754

This is apart of their (new?) Hop Kitchen series. The lager features Rye, Melanoidin, Munich, and Goldpils Vienna malts with Nugget, Hallertauer, Perle, and Fuggle hops.

Stats:
Helles Bock. 6.9% ABV. 70 IBUs. Colorado. Limited Release.

Golden color. Really fluffy head when first poured and quite a bit of lacing.

Interesting nose. It’s pretty hoppy but not citrusy. It’s more peppery to earthy. Hint of honey shows up there, too.

Mouthfeel is alright. Body is pretty light. Carbonation is medium-ish.

Some black pepper and earthy flavors up front, hint of honey and strawberry on the mid and ends on a fairly bitter finish.

It’s alright. Doesn’t blow me away, can’t say I hate it. Just a meh. 84 points.
