Notes: This super juicy sour New England style IPA pours opaque, with heavy aroma of fresh juice and drinks with a danky, tangy distortion that will leave you wondering if that all just really happened.

4.01/5  rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: Hazy, pale yellow, tinged with a little bit of green. Tall, rocky head with large bubbles.

Smell: Peach, grapefruit, grapes. Smells sweet, sour, and slightly hoppy. Hints of banana and wheat.

Taste: Sour and lightly sweet up front. Light, dry juice flavor that's a bit generic and indistinct. A little bit of lingering vanilla lactose flavor mixed with light hop bitterness.

Feel: Light/medium-bodied, with the sourness and dryness making it feel light and crisp.

Overall: An interesting, well-balanced mix of sour, dry, and juicy. This feels like a more restrained version of Victory Juice Boost -- a little less sweet and sour. Definitely worth checking out.

As a fan of sour monkey I was glad to find this on the shelves. Color and smell are not really throwing me off by the taste quite exquisite has that distinct Brett the character that takes edge off of the bitterness that is the IPA style. Body is crisp and clean and it's quite easy to finish. Overall this is one of my favorite IPA experimental beers one I will be sure to buy again.

16oz can into a pint glass. Best by June 2020. Split with a friend.

Hazy yellow/orange body. Small white head dissipates to a ring and faint covering. No lacing, but carbonation bubbles continue to pop on the surface.

Light citrus aromas

On tasting, there are aspects of both sour and the ne IPA. Neither are strong, and it's quite well balanced.

Mouth a little above medium, finish a lightly sour tang.

Overall, an interesting and fairly well executed concept. Doubt I could deal with more than one of these at a time though.
