Great sour on a par with some of Russian River's stuff. Nose is a little mellow but wonderfully sour. Weird thing is, I paid $25 for a bomber, while I could get 3x that amount of HopTart for $10 and HopTart's almost as good. I probably won't get it again due to the value prop but if you get the chance to try it, absolutely do so.

A-hazy orange amber color with e decent white head and a little lacing

S-grain, wheat, fruity, sour, funky

T-yeasty funk, hints of apricot, lemon, sour grapes, little oak

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, tart and puckering, but not astringent

O-happy to see domestic sours of this quality, wish it were more widely available
