Not sure this is still retired as I had it on tap recently (11/2013).

They called this a tart IPA on the beer menu at the Mikkeller Bar and that about summed it up.

This pours a hazy wheat-beer-ish gold with caps of white foam. Great vibrant aroma that made me think of freshly picked Meyer lemons, zest, juice, and flowers all in full bloom. The flavor is hoppy with a citrusy lemony character but what really stands out is the slight puckering tartness that makes this beer interesting and unique. Delicious. No idea it was 8%!

Serving type: on-tap
