On tap at The Brew Cafe in Ardmore.

Good Good Things has a good look of deep burnt orange with a small tint of red towards the sides. The bubbles up top are off white/tan and form a solid cap that eventually fades, small clings of lace on the glass. It's a real pretty beer and a bit hazy. A very deep nose on this one, I get a lot of lemon, some orange, ripe melon, pale malt and some sour cherry. It smells like it has that tartness I've been feigning for. And on first sips im hit with a nice mix of sourness and bitter hop bite from the Amarillo addition. Bold with mellon, cherry, lemon up front blending nicely into a bitter end with some grapefruit and other tropic flavor. Tart on the tounge yet this goes down juicy as all get out. The body on good good things is pretty light, a bit lighter than the ABV would suggest, the tartness is pleasant, large but not eye popping. I am seriously thinking about getting a growler of this to take down to the head because it is that good good.

First had: on tap at the brewpub

Listed as a "sour IPA."

This came off a lot like a hoppy Berliner weisse, but like many of TH's beers, this really rode the loosely-defined borders between several styles. Berliner/IPA/wild...some combination of the three...who knows?

Opaquely hazy burnt orange color, topped with a small, creamy off-white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus--orange, grapefruit--fresh hops, and a touch of candy sweetness. If I wasn't told this was going to be a "sour," I probably wouldn't have guess it from the nose alone. On the other hand, there was a distinctive tartness right up front in the taste, again, comparable to a Berliner weisse, juicy orange and grapefruit peel, mid-palate bringing in a candied orange sensation (someone actually likened it to Chinese food; and once he mentioned that, I thought: orange chicken?). Near the end there was a big spicy hop presence, ensuring that this definitely underwent an aggressive IPA hoppage. The bitterness and the tartness melded well. Fuller medium body, very tasty, distinctive, and good enough for me to order another before leaving.
