4.13/5  rDev +0.5%

A: Hazy, tea-colored hue with a thin film of a head; pretty good lacing

S: Apricot, tangerine; a bit subdued but the hop profile is pleasant and balances nicely with a subtle bready undertone

T: Tart fruity flavors up front followed by apricot, grapefruit, tangerine; really a nicely balanced, slightly tart beer; funk comes out a bit in the finish

F: A touch thin up front but the creaminess and stickiness helps out in the finish

O: A fun, tart, hoppy brew

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Amarillo cum berliner weiss. Big flavour, primarily orange. Well hopped. Big flavour. Pretty good knowing something about it to appreciate what was done, yet the complexity and wildness is controlled. Nothing funky. SOlid stuff worth seeking out.

First had: on tap at the brewpub

Listed as a "sour IPA."

This came off a lot like a hoppy Berliner weisse, but like many of TH's beers, this really rode the loosely-defined borders between several styles. Berliner/IPA/wild...some combination of the three...who knows?

Opaquely hazy burnt orange color, topped with a small, creamy off-white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus--orange, grapefruit--fresh hops, and a touch of candy sweetness. If I wasn't told this was going to be a "sour," I probably wouldn't have guess it from the nose alone. On the other hand, there was a distinctive tartness right up front in the taste, again, comparable to a Berliner weisse, juicy orange and grapefruit peel, mid-palate bringing in a candied orange sensation (someone actually likened it to Chinese food; and once he mentioned that, I thought: orange chicken?). Near the end there was a big spicy hop presence, ensuring that this definitely underwent an aggressive IPA hoppage. The bitterness and the tartness melded well. Fuller medium body, very tasty, distinctive, and good enough for me to order another before leaving.

3.93/5  rDev -4.4%

On tap at Tired Hands 12/18/12, served in a tulip.

Pour: Dark hazy orange, with two fingers of off white, thick head. Leaves nice lacing and hangs around for a solid portion of the glass.

Smell: Tart cantaloupe, some grapefruit, and some oranges. Not very strong fruit notes, but they are definitely there. Some funks lingers in the background. A candy sweetness rises as well.

Taste: Follows the nose, but with a bigger caramel malt presence. All the same fruit flavors of cantaloupe, grapefruit, and oranges, but much more subdued. A lactic tartness, but is a reserved amount. Finishes tart and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Pretty drinkable, with a really nice velvety carb. Good tartness provides complexity, but isn't puckering or cloying.

Overall: Nice, but a bit too much of a malt presence for its description of a sour IPA for me. Perhaps I just expected it to be more hop and tart forward than as balanced as it is.

On tap at The Brew Cafe in Ardmore.

Good Good Things has a good look of deep burnt orange with a small tint of red towards the sides. The bubbles up top are off white/tan and form a solid cap that eventually fades, small clings of lace on the glass. It's a real pretty beer and a bit hazy. A very deep nose on this one, I get a lot of lemon, some orange, ripe melon, pale malt and some sour cherry. It smells like it has that tartness I've been feigning for. And on first sips im hit with a nice mix of sourness and bitter hop bite from the Amarillo addition. Bold with mellon, cherry, lemon up front blending nicely into a bitter end with some grapefruit and other tropic flavor. Tart on the tounge yet this goes down juicy as all get out. The body on good good things is pretty light, a bit lighter than the ABV would suggest, the tartness is pleasant, large but not eye popping. I am seriously thinking about getting a growler of this to take down to the head because it is that good good.

On-tap at the brewpub

A burnt orange body, slightly cloudy, with a firm off-white cap. Some clingy lace around the edges. Juicy oranges and nectarines with some mild sour notes of tart cherry and a bit of cantaloupe. Super clean pale malt underneath just pokes through a little bit. On the palate, a lactic tartness leaps first. A good amount of citrus follows through the middle; white grapefruit, nectarines, and oranges. The finish is a bit of clean malt followed by some bitter, juicy citrus and a burst of lactic tartness. Medium body with good carbonation. Good Good Things blurs the stylistic lines a bit, toeing on hoppy berliner weiss, but this is a winner. Just the right amount of hoppyness balanced by the right amount of sour. Amazingly drinkable.

growler poured into taster - thanks brad

Pours a clouded orange with a soft golden glow. Thick crop of white head slowly fades into patchy lacing on the glass.

Combination of aggressive citric hops and funky tartness in the nose. Oranges and citrus juice, bitterness with faint sweetness. Biscuit malts.

Hybrid of flavors which incorporate biting citrusy hops and slightly acidic sourness. Both components are driven by orange and lemon with some doughy, biscuit malts. Mild backbone, faint sweetness. Finishes bitter and dry with lingering tartness.

Medium body, decent carbonation, dry and lasting on the palate. Interesting experimental beer, although part of me felt like this was a mistake, even though this was the brewer's intention.
