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.
