L) Pours a lovely honey color with a ruby tinge. The head is small and there is minimal lacing.

S) The nose has some acidity to it, but honestly it smells mostly like a juicy NE IPA. Lovely dry mimosa notes with some resin and floral notes from the hops.

T) The taste is quite nice, but it really is not sour enough to be labeled "Sour Tart N Juicy." Everything present in the nose is in the palate, and it is definitely a citrus bomb and juicy, but the sour could definitely use some cranking up.

F) The beer is delightfully light, with a nice prickly acidity and medium to high carbonation.

O) This is a solid brew, honestly my review would be higher if the name didn't have sour right in it.

Cloudy golden brown color with an off-white head. Aromas are fruity hops and a sour component like tart Granny Smith apples.

The taste features the fruity hops and a tart flavor that again reminds me of tart Granny Smith apples. An interesting and tasty take on a style I really enjoy.

The beer poured an interesting unfiltered , cloudy orange gold, with little head. It smells like promised, a citrusy, fruity with hint of sour. Not being a fan of Sours, I must say, i was impressed by the nice balance, between crispy fruity hop flavor and the typical tart of a sour.. It had also a good feel and is very drinkable and refreshing.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz can. Pours a hazy burnt orange with a decent off white head that falls quickly. It has lots of swimmers floating in it. Leaves a slight lace throughout. Smells very hoppy with citrus overtones. Very much an IPA. Tast is spectacular. Lightly piney and hoppy with hints of every citrus fruit imaginable. Has a very Ipa front end, tart in the middle, and finish of iced tea with lemon. This is a very good IPA. I hope I find it again.

The look is standard light orange/gold IPA color, with a modest amount of head. The smell is also what you'd expect for an IPA. juicy & citrusy. The taste is outstanding. There's the sour flavor, as promised on the can, but also with the citrusy & slightly sweet IPA flavor. It's a great combination, balanced and not over-hopped. The mouthfeel is Medium bodied, but very drinkable. I really enjoyed this one.
