BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trinity Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A wild and sour session IPA. Brewed with three heavily fruity hops, coriander, and tangerine zest the profile is definitely American in focus. Aged in French Oak Chardonnay barrels with souring Lactobacillus, funky Brettanomyces yeast, and dry-hopped in each individual barrel. This beer is a definite wow moment.

This was a citrusy sour explosion that I personally enjoyed very much. It lived up to the hype. I didn't understand it as an IPA other than that it had plenty of citrus. The sour was awesome and not too puckering. Excellent!
