4/5 rDev -7%
Last bottle of this beer - had it when it was first released in the Spring - lets see how it has aged.
A - Looks a bit like a DIPA - muddy orange and honey-color with a finger or so of head that dissipates quickly. Fair degree of lacing.
S - Not nearly as vibrant as when fresh - unfortunate. Still has remnants of the fruitiness from Amarillo hops, along with apple tartness and overripe fruits.
T - The fruitiness of the nose is up front, followed by pretty puckering sourness. Finishes with more of the apple cider vinegar notes. Solid sour - doesn't compare to what I remember from March or Russian River's offerings.
M - Medium bodied, crisp carbonation almost soda-like in effervescence. Nice and refreshing.
Found this beer to be much better and fuller in flavors and aroma when it was fresh. It has definitely mellowed and balanced out a bit but I miss that fruit-forward character it had a few months ago. Still worth seeking out.

Poured into a pint glass at Barley and Hops
The beer is a hazy amber color with a thin coaster of white foam atop it. The aroma is lemon zest and light funk. Taste features big citrus notes, bitter hops and acetic tartness. Starts out sweet and fruity followed by a very nice hoppy bitterness and a sour, tart finish. Feel tends toward the lighter side with a nice level of carbonation. Overall I found this to be a very enjoyable offering from New Belgium. Light, refreshing and very easy drinking.
