4.13/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Growler into tulip.

A: Pours a cloudy dirty lemon color with a finger or two of white head that faded into a fuzzy film and collar. Stringy lace was left down the glass.
S: Earthy yeast and dry oak barrel mix with sweet tropical and citrus hops expertly well. The nose is hoppy and vibrant with perfumey hops, earthy light funk, pineapple, and a touch of mint.
T: More tart than nose let on. Lightly acidic with a sharp lactic bite. Lemon and grapefruit juice with a touch of peach. Lemon and dough in the finish, with a buttery oaky funk in the aftertaste.
M: Medium body, tart, greasy mouthfeel. Not super dry, not super tart. Good bite to it though. Mellow carbonation.
O: Delicious. I was expecting a touch more hops but this is balanced and works well. Easy drinking, but could be drier. I dig it. Solid bitterness.

EDIT: Had batch 2 on tap a few times and I'm getting a lot more tropical and floral hops. The sweet and fragrant hops are working better with the sour than my above review. Overall, I enjoyed it much more than the first time I had it, and have bumped up my review as such.

Serving type: growler

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Served at the brewery in a tulip glass.

A: Slightly hazy gold. Little to no head.

S: Mmmm. The Amarillo hops are apparent. Strongly aromatically hoppy. Very bitter. Lightly fruity.

T: Incredible. Great blend of light tartness, hoppy acidity, and well-bittered. Smack worthy finish with hint of Hoppiness.

M: Tart and refreshing pleasant.

O: interesting and unique. I love this. Highly recommended. Will have again.

Serving type: on-tap
