I couldn't decide for a long time if I loved or hated this beer. It's just so different than anything I've had before... actually, no, it's really similar to two very dissimilar things I've had before (IPAs and sours). Some swigs feature an explosion of hops, while others are straight-up sour, and most are some crazy commingling of the two. Once I wrapped my brain around the dichotomy, I decided I loved it. The fruity notes in the hops provide a great layer on top of the fruity sour of the base beer. Will be seeking out more of this.
