Handsome orangey-amber brew with plenty of foam in the clear plastic glass. Sort of a citrusy, acetic odor. Not much for aroma. A fain sweet malt comes through the tart slash. Not very drinkable, but not terribly sour. Not much flavor either, but it could be some sort of unripe fruit lurking, like iced tea with too much lemon.

I suppose adding the sour dimension is another way of making lower-alcohol beers more interesting. But it renders the hop aromatics invisible. From the 12 oz can in the Colorado mixed 12 pack.

Poured out a clear, golden-orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled juicy - lots of sweet and sour tropical fruits. It has that IPA bitter punch with sour tropical fruits.

Tart n juicy pours a bronze color with no head. Fruity aroma. Taste has a lemon sour, light with hints of good. Good body and feel. Overall, this came together very nice beer.

Color is yellow amber. Head and lacing is minimal. Aroma is a bit off putting at start- urine, vegetal- but has notes of tart lemon and grapefruit- pretty intense. Not a huge fan of the palate as well unfortunately. 80/100.
