New Belgium To Offer ‘Citradelic Tangerine IPA’ Year-Round

New Belgium Brewing announced Monday the brewery would produce Citradelic Tangerine IPA year-round.

Citradelic Tangerine IPA is a blend of Citra hops, Tangerine-touched Mandarina Bavaria, tropical Azacca, and fruity Galaxy hops complement Citra, balanced with a touch of malty sweetness.

“This hop profile really lends itself to that big citrusy, juicy fruit nose, so the next logical step was to riff off of that with actual Tangerine,” said Assistant Brewmaster Grady Hull. “The result is a brightly citrus, slightly bitter, and pleasantly balanced IPA.”

Citradelic Tangerine IPA comes in at 6 percent ABV and 50 IBUs. It retails for a suggested price between $8.99 and $10.99 a six-pack.

Seasonal Release: Side Trip Belgian Style Pale Ale
New Belgium also announced their Side Trip Belgian Style Pale Ale hits shelves this January as well.

The pale ale includes Belgian Chateau Abbey, and Cara Ruby malts with Belgian Magnum, Saphir, and Target hops, providing a bready, caramel-sweet wash with traces of stone fruit and a dry finish. It has 22 IBUs and registers at 6 percent ABV. Side Trip Belgian Style Pale Ale retails for a suggested price between $8.99 and $10.99 a six-pack.

New Belgium will debut two beer from their Glütiny series, a line of gluten-reduced beers. For both Glütiny Golden Ale and Glütiny Pale Ale, New Belgium brewers used an enzyme to break down the gluten proteins. Glütiny Golden Ale, at 5.2 percent ABV and 20 IBUs, is a sessionable, flavorful ale that starts sweet and ends crisp. Glütiny Pale Ale, at 6 percent ABV and 30 IBUs, has a light sweetness that slides into a balanced bitterness. Glütiny beers retail for a suggested price of $9.99 a six-pack.
