Very pleased with this beer. Pours a hazy light yellow, good amount of carbonation, good mix of sour and hoppiness. Satisfies as a single beer but is very drinkable if you wanted more.

Poured into a tall tulip, the appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a finger’s worth of white foamy to messy head. Mostly messy lacing, semi-sticky. The aroma starts off with a big sour lemon flowing into a nice semi-sweet to bitter dry hopped grassy sweet hops. Lemongrass subtleties. Tweaked semi-white pepper spice underneath. Nice fresh/bright crispness all around. Some pineapple. Light Stonefruit. The flavor leans sour initially with a sly crisp sour lemon/grassy hops. Subtle malts, seem sour-ed appropriately. Fresh light smooth sour aftertaste flowing into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation. Overall, really nice dry hopped sour ale that I would preferably have again in the Summer.

Golden straw with thin white head

Smells of green apple and lemon rind

Crisp, refreshing, a little funky

The amount of tartness is very refreshing...not a puckering sour, much more crisp and balanced

Just had the Mosaic version, this one is pretty good but not quite on the same level.
Similarly tropical and juicy, aroma is a bit more earthy with a little bit of lychee coming through.
Pale golden orange coloration, thin froth around the edges, broken surface skim.

Taste is juicy and bright, lychee and lemon. Clean and dry finish. Light bodied, very drinkable.
I like this series, this one isn't a standout, but still very good.

Define a dream. Escape your reality. Be anything you want to be. Try it without screaming. I wanted until I had. I had until I needed. I needed until... I sip, and I.... and I...
