Notes: Brewed for our 3rd Anniversary, this is the imperial version of our Passion fruit, Orange & Guava (POG) kettle sour ale. We effectively doubled the amount of fruit, you might mistake this for a Kerns or Hawaiian Sun.

Sweet and tart, tropical-fruit punch nose on this one.Taste follows with an initially sweet note, but then turns tart with Passionfruit and Guava on the finish. Citrus from the orange lingers on the back of the throat at the end of the swallow. It has good depth and gets more viscous as it warms. If it had slightly less carbonation, this would feel like drinking a sour/tart Kern's Nectar! Good!

Hazy yellow orange sunset look. Aroma is passion fruit orange peach and guava. Makes sense it was done on pog puree. Flavor has the same tones but slight grapefruit tart as well. This was a great balance of sweet and sour. Carbonation and acity cut through the tart and feels unbelievably easy drinking for a 8+% beer. Unmatched for me in sours so far!

For those who want a bridge between sours and dipa. Too bad it was an anniversar bottling. Should be made again!
