4.2/5 rDev +6.3%
Poured from a 500 ml bottle
Pour is a beautiful hazy amber color with a ton of thick white head. Took a couple pours to get it all into a glass.
The nose has a lot of lemon juice and lemon zest on it with some citrusy hops coming through. Great smell Tons of lemon sharpness similar to fresh lemonade.
The taste is incredible and unlike anything I've ever had. Anyone thinking this will be like a shandy or some beer + juice hybrid will be mistaken. It has such an overwhelming amount of clean lemon flavor that has a great amount of sour/tart bite to it. The lemon takes the wheel in this beer with the sourness rides shotgun.
Mouthfeel starts with a big bite from the carbonation that just adds and compliments the taste so well.
Overall a very different and surprising beer that I've been waiting to try since I first got to try it at the Worthy Burger last fall. Drinking it I would never think it was 9.1%. Maybe the lemon sharpness covers it up but I thought it was in the 5%-6% range.

A very lemony, but otherwise quite dry and tasty IPA. The beer has so-so bitterness, but the lemon flavor more than compensates for that. This a very easy to appreciate IPA, and frankly, I was stunned by the 9% abv. This drinks like an IPA in the 7% range, if that. A very nice, easy to appreciate IPA.

Not at all what I expected, but in a very good way. The beer is deeply hazy, looking like it will be a hoppy imperial IPA. The clean nose with a slightly sour note should have been the hint that calling this beer an IPA is a mis-nomer. The full mouth feel of sour lemon is nearly overwhelming, but manages to work really well.
Fans of sour beers and surprising flavors will like this.
