Orangish pour light head. This beer smells awesome. Hoppy and fruitastic. Here is where things go south for me. The taste punches you in the mouth. I'm not a fan of sours. The thing about this one though is that there is some tasty stuff going on after the initial kick in the pants. It has a complex taste that I think would grow on me if not for the sour kick. I think this is probably right up the alley of all of the sour drinkers. Not for me, but I think it has some tasty aspects to it.

22 oz bomber poured into a tulip glass. 2014 version.

A - Translucent orange with ruby highlights. Small half finger head that moves to a thin lace.

S- Aromatic hops! Peach, apricot. No hint of sourness.

T - And there's the twist. Sourness on a slightly below medium level. It does stay consistent with the nose at first, until the slight sourness and vinegar take over. You also some get some blueberry underneath.

M- For a sharp and dry and finish, it is suprisingly low on the carbonation.

O - A good tasting sour, great aroma.
