2013 Vintage

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down slowly and leaves lovely lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of loads of citrus, mango, peaches, some lemon zest, barnyard funk, some earthiness and a touch of sweet caramel.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a big sour /tart character upfront, citrus, lemon zest, some peaches (very tropical hops), definite barnyard funk and light caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Wow, IPA meets Sour executed perfectly. I would love to have access to this year round.
