Where: In my apartment
Other notes: Bottled 3/2013. Poured into pint glass from 25.4oz bottle. Crazy carbonation overflow upons opening the bottle

Appearance - 3/5
Pours a dark hazy red-brown color. The carbonation was crazy in this bottle, so it't hard to tell what the head for this bear would normally be like. Very hazy, but you can still see some of the carbonation bubbling up through the brew if you hold the brew up to a light.

Smell - 3.75/5
Classic JP tart smell. Smells of sour apples, lemons, maybe some cherry. I do love the JP style, but there is nothing to the smell that really sets this apart from their other beers.

Taste - 4/5
A combination of bready and tart tastes. The tartness in this brew does not seem as strong as other JP brews.The tartness tastes like the smell (sour apples, lemon, cherries). Quite sweet, with a tiny bit of spiciness. Overall a good taste if you like tart beers. But again, nothing in this brew taste-wise which sets it apart from other JP brews.

Mouthfeel - 3.75/5
Medium body, quite smooth, a little bit creamy. A strong carbonation presence.

Overall - 3.5/5
I do love the JP sour taste, which this beer has, however the sour taste seems to be weaker in this beer, and there is really nothing else which improves on any other JP beer.

Weighting: Appearance 15%, Smell 15%, Taste 35%, Mouthfeel 15%, Overall 20%
