This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at New Belgium's Citradelic- Tangerine IPA.
A few days ago I walked into a Target and while browsing for some Fiber One snacks, I wandered through the beer aisle (OK, I intentionally perused the beer aisle) and saw something that I was not expecting - New Belgium!
I had never (officially) seen New Belgium products for sale in New York (a certain Suffolk County beer store has been known to stock some out of state beers in special mix cases, but that's another story), so this was quite a shock for me. The beer was on a shelf which did not even list New Belgium so I asked a stock clerk and she told me that it had just come in that day.
I took the beer home and chilled it before trying some with char-grilled chicken and meat as part of our Friday Night dinner. The beer poured a light copper with nice carbonation and some lacing. The first sip was some pine and citrus with a little added tartness from the orange peel and orange that was added to the brew process. The beer is not a classic IPA as you can taste the additives, but they are not cloyingly sweet and work nicely with the finished product.
New Belgium Citradelic Tangerine IPA is under the Kosher Supervision of the Scroll-K of Colorado. Although the beer does not bear the kosher symbol on the label, the Scroll-K kosher symbol can be found on the bottom of the six pack holder.
