A: poured from the bottle into a tulip to a nice golden orange with a dense finger and a half white head that slowly fades
S: smells intensely of the dry hops with bits of pine, citrus and some earthyness
T: starts off with a hint of tartness followed by some piney, resinous and earthy hops. Slight oakyness from the beer as well sweetness tries to come out but the hops and tartness keep it at bay. Swallow is a huge smack of acetic sourness, with some funk, citrus and oak. The sourness comes out a bit more in the following drinks but that dry hopping is still very forward.
M: Lighter side of medium in the mouth with soft but apparent carbonation. It has a semi slick feel in the mouth and a drying finish
O: I don't know who thought to dry hop a sour but it works and it works very well. This is a phenomenal beer.

This was a perfect sour, very complex, and right to the point. You get so many different flavor profiles from this. You get lemon, Granny Smith Apple, just a bitter/sour fruit bomb. The dry hopping of this beer works perfectly, and the low malt profile balances this beer out.
