Growler poured into a New Belgium glass

A- A hazy straw color with a small white head.

S- Sour with some nice hops, getting sour lemons, tropical fruits and a nice herbal tea smell.

T- Sour lemons, tropical fruits, nice barnyard funk, some piney/herbal hops in the finish, great mix of flavors very well balanced.

M- Smooth, crisp, dry, light body.

O- Wow, a very well done sour, love what the dry hopping brings to it.

On tap at the Malt and Vine.

A - Glows a gorgeous deep apricot. Snow white foam piled on top. Feeling optimistic.

S - Fruitiness of stone fruits: apricot and peach. Sourness of passion fruit. Grapefruit notes from citra hops. Crisp, and the aromas mix wonderfully.

T - Pleasantly tart up front backed by juicy passion fruit and wooded funk. The hops come on the finish bringing the grapefruit from the nose. I was sceptical about the dry-hopping but it really adds an added level of interest and complexity. This is very crisp and refreshing. Delicious.

M - Medium-bodied. Juicy, woody and dry. Compliments the flavour.

O - This beer really surprised me. I didn't think I was going to like the dry-hopping but I did find it elevated the experience. I would have liked a little more wood and funk but, taken as it is, it's a very clean and refreshing beer.

Serving type: on-tap
