New Belgium’s Hoppy Blonde Ale is their spring seasonal release, and is an easy to drink beer. It takes a leap into the tropics with its hop-nose and ends with a light and refreshing finish. The malt base selected for this particular brew combines notes of mango, lemon, blueberry and pine. Hoppy Blonde is medium bodied and pours golden, with a toasty sweetness, tropical fruity aroma, and an approachable bitter end. Ultimately, a sessionable blonde ale with a head rush of hops.

I am a adventure-seeker, dog lover, and beer enthusiast from Honolulu, Hawaii who is now enjoying life in San Diego. My interest in craft beer began in Belgium during my time studying abroad in London, England, and was only furthered after I returned to the States. Since moving down to San Diego, I have enjoyed many new experiences with my pup, including visiting pet-friendly tasting rooms and the city’s great outdoors. I enjoy her daily cup of coffee and quality time spent at the gym. As someone always looking forward to trying something new, being an Alien will open doors to new experiences.
