Light brown to dull copper penny in color with moderate clarity. A minuscule layer of thin white head partially covers the top of the beer. Aroma is a complicated mixture of tart Brett and earthy citrus like hops. The taste is initially very tart and yet quickly the citrus like hops follow and help keep the tartness in check. The fade is an interesting tango of the ultra sour Brett notes and more fresh citrus hops. The mouth is dry and earthy. This a very refreshing roller coaster ride for your palate. Not for the meek tongued!

2013 batch.

A: Pours a cloudy orange with a good sized and frothy light tan head. Head fizzes out somewhat quickly but with an almost completely solid wall of lacing. Decent retention.

S: Interesting. Sour citrus, orange peel and grapefruit? Hoppy, fruity and tart at the same. Very nice and crisp and refreshing.

T: Huh, hoppy grapefruit up front. Tart citrus follows, mostly a combination of grapefruit and oranges. Quite sour and a kick from the bitterness at the same time in the finish. Lingering bitter oranges and grapefruits.

M: Medium bodied, sharp and crisp.

O: Interesting sour, never had a hopped sour before. The hoppiness enhances the fruitiness and gives it an edge that's really nice. Overall a very crisp and drinkable sour.
