Poured from a pint bottle into a tulip glass. A little over seven months old. On sale at Liquor Mart in Boulder, CO.

L- Coppery red color, half inch white head

S- Passionfruit, hoppy, citrus, almost like candy

T- Straight passionfruit, some lemon tones, nice balance of tart and bitter, no hint of alcohol for a 9.1% IPA. Very tropical and pleasant.

F- Finishes dry, which I like. It has a bright and vibrant mouthfeel, probably due to effervescence and slight tartness. The finish seems to dance upon the palate; very lively.

O- Insanely drinkable and reminiscent of a Brettanomyces fermented IPA, but without the blue cheese semi-funk that oftentimes finds its way into such beers. I honestly can't fathom why it's a poor seller and on sale. Non-hop-heads seem to find it delicious but a tad overwhelming (based upon my roommates' impressions; they were enamored over the aroma, to note). Add into the equation that it's a collaboration betwixt three outstanding breweries, from three different countries with wildly different brewing traditions, and you've got something special. I will buy this again, and I would absolutely recommend to anyone who is into IPAs or dry hopped sours (though I wouldn't call this sour by any means). Solid, well-balanced, delicious brew.

Tried this at The Farmhouse in Burlington. Have to say I am not a fan and this was really offputting. Just kind of boozy and like drinking liquor. I guess that's what's intended, but who wants a bomber full of this?

Pours into an oversized wine glass a slight hazed tangerine color with a nice large fluffy white head atop.Not alot of sourness in the nose more like a sweetish lemonade with a hint of grass.The sourness comes thru on the palate with pithy lemon rind and oils with a strong lactic finish.Not a fan of all things sour...(except for vinegar based bbq) but it's easy to see the quality of this beer.
