this is excellent wild ale, my first from wicked weed. it has a cool pinking orange glow not unlike its label, and it holds an inch of white head pretty well. the nose has some great acidity to it, citric and clean, mouthwatering. they call this one a sour ipa, but i don't think its the best example of that. the hops are really aromatic and tasty, fruity and high alpha, but they are really subtle, and definitely take a back seat to the wild aspect of this beer, the brett and the tartness. an interesting candy-like flavor arises in the middle of this beer, almost like a watermelon or strawberry candy, not super sweet, but that odd artificial fruit thing. hops don't give much bitterness as the finish is really bright acidity and a bit of oak. good brett complexion and an extremely flavorful beer not missing anything. as an ipa, i don't love it because its not robustly hopped enough, but as a unique wild ale it is a great success. i like the fruity middle and the puckery finish. delicious offering from wicked weed here, with excellent carbonation and light medium body, something i could really drink a lot of. thanks to drlovemd87 for sharing this and several others last night.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is a slightly hazy, amber-tinted copper coloring with a frothy, low profile, sparse, off-white head. Aromas of herbal spices and vegetation forward, with oregano, basil, and thistle, and some tart berry and grape fruit notes, subtle citrus notes, pine and resinous hops notes, and a toasted grain backbone. Flavors are very tart sour forward, with a spiced and herbal undertone immediately. Grape must, lemon, sour cherry, and grapefruit notes throughout, with an acidic and astringent overtone, followed by dry grass, oregano, pepper, and thistle, all on a toasted grain backbone. Very dry and crisp bodied, with a minimalistic floral and spiced aftertaste. Subtle citrus linger in there, too. The finish is effervesced from the carbonation, with an overall dry feel, and a tart and bitter linger. This is a great beer. It really works your taste buds out.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours without much of a head atop a hazy deep orange body.

Smell - Kinda oaky. Definitely getting a fruity acidity. Citrus hops. Has some sweet maltiness, too.

Taste - Tartness is stronger. Lots of grapefruit hops. Makes the tartness taste grapefruity, too. Woody in the very back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body and medium carbonation. Moderate to low sourness.

Overall - I have little to say about this. It is what it is.

Pours a hazy, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus, tartness, hint of alcohol, hint of hop, strong yeast, floral notes, and a hint of grass. Fits the style of an American Wild Ale. Mouth feel is tart, sharp, crisp, dry, and average carbonation level. Tastes of strong yeast, alcohol, slight citrus, hint of sweet malt, floral notes, and a hint of hop. Overall, weaker appearance, but great aroma, body, blend, and complexity.
