4.49/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look - Hazy, dark orange with short-lasting head, just some light white bubbles remaining.
Smell - Citrus, vanilla, and a little funk.
Taste - Lots of citrus mixed nicely with stone fruit (I believe guava). As it warms, sips start sweet on the tongue, then I get a light tart as it goes down. The vanilla and lactose balance the tart well, giving it a creamsicle quality. I'm enjoying it - reminds me of a frappe IPA.
Feel - It's brewed with lactose, so that softens the tartness one might otherwise expect from a sour. For all of the flavor and the ABV, it is much lighter in body than I anticipated. I'm not perceiving any alcohol for the size.
Overall - An excellent sour/frappe IPA, full of fruit flavor and a tart finish.
