On tap at the Torrey Pines Lodge. Pours a glowing yellowish orange. Little to no head. Carb is low. The body comes off as a bit heavy. Extraordinary sourness that makes the salivary glands go crazy. My stomach hates me after 8 ounces. Not much funk. Just big lactic sourness. Hugely acidic. Burning acidity. Decent fruit presence. Reminds me of an underripe white peach actually. Certainly a phenomenal beer that comes up just short of the top echelon of Lost Abbey sours.
