This is, by far, my favorite beer.

Take everything you like about sours... then add in the hoppiness you love about IPAs... and you have this unique, tart, delicious beer. If I had to send someone to try just one beer in the entire Tampa area beer scene, it would be this beer.

A sour IPA from St. Petersburg? Now I've seen everything.

Pours a lovely golden color from my growler.

Big, dank hop aroma is quite herbal. Very nice.

This is a sour beer, first and foremost. After the tartness washes over you you're hit with bitterness and big herbal hop flavors, with a hint of bread thrown in for the heck of it.

If you don't like sour beer, steer well clear of this one. Otherwise, it's a must try.

Green Bench is changing palates in St. Pete. Can Sarasota handle them when they start selling their beers here later this year?
