Junkyard Biocumulus Sour IPA with lactose. 6.4 % ABV. Junkyard Brewing, Moorhead, MN.

Clear, bright golden hue, large and lace-leaving head atop. Looking lovely.

In the nose: Tart, floral, fruity. Citrus and pine.

In the mouth: Big sour from the start, with with a judicious dose of fruity. Nice brace of hoppiness, completely covered by the sour. Medium bodied, and fairly smooth and tasty.

Why the lactose, though? I can't even taste it. Not sure what it's there for. Are the brewers just going through the ropes, tossing in the lactose out of habit? Am I not supposed to taste it? Is it in there to stave off the hop bitterness I crave in an IPA? These questions and more plague my mind. If anyone wants to school me on this, go right ahead.

Sour IPA, eh? Well, I like this one. Refreshing and delicious. Can't argue with the results.

Poured from crowler into glass. Fill date stamped as '1/9/19'.
Slightly cloudy, straw colored body. One finger of white head, which fades but sticks around as thin cap. Leaves behind some scattered spots of lacing.
Aroma is tangerine citrus, along with the sweet lactose.
Taste is slightly tart, with tangerine citrus and grapefruit pith. Also has a sweetness element from the lactose.
Medium plus mouth feel, with a smooth, creamy like texture. Very good carbonation.
As labeled, this is a sour IPA which has a tasty flavor profile, and an inviting mouth feel. Not bitter at all, but expresses the tartness.

Sour IPA

Pours a hazy peach/tangerine colour. Smells like fresh citrus-hops, tangerine, a little funky and tart. Tastes slightly tart, fruity, tangerine/mandarin orange peel, citra-hops pithy-ness, crisp and smooth. Creamy-esque mouthfeel.
