3.99/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

10 oz. on draft at the brewery.

Appearance: Slightly hazy straw with minimal head.

Aroma: Mild funky aroma with some citrus and lemon.

Taste: Nice sour/citrus mix. Orange, mangoes and lemons with a whiff of barnyardish funk. Sour finish. Refreshing for a sour beer.

Mouthfeel: Very drinkable. Not a face-puckering bomb of lemon. Enjoyable.

Overall: A well executed sour beer. Not particularly hoppy for a beer termed an IPA, but definitely a nice offering.

4/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Some tartness up front along with citrus and bready malt. Solid

T: Starts off with the sour and citrus notes and then picks up some grassy undertones. Lemon and grapefruit stand out. Bitterness is well balanced by both the tartness and bready malt. Finishes with lingering citrus and tartness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very well balanced and drinkable sour IPA. I was a little skeptical going in, but this one works well. Don't be afraid to try it out, especially if you like sours and/or IPAs
