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.

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.
