Holy hell am i lucky to have got a crowler of this to myself.

Literally the most gorgeous orange juice appearance with pure, bright white foam.

Slight hoppy and grassy smell. With weak tangerine smell. Was a little skeptical of how it may play out.

Perfectly tart mimosa is what this tastes like. Pillowy carbonation makes it perfectly smoothe.

Wow i wish i had 30 of these.

Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a thick yellow color with hardly any head to speak of. Smell is sour grapefruit. Taste is a tart orange, very nice. It's a smooth beer and a nice sour. I don't see the IPA at all, but it's a real good mimosa-style beer.

Pours yellow straw in color with a small white head. Nice white head. No real lacing aroma of tangerine. Taste is really refreshing with a tangerine tones from start to finish. Hudson Valley is doing some really cool sours. They’re changing my mind on sours.

On tap at the brewery and round 2 from a crowler.
A- completely cloudy orange gold with a two finger fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Looks like straight up orange juice.
S- Aroma is orange, grapefruit tons of tangerine, some wild berry, hints of lemon, mild hop notes, some hints of funky yeast, champagne.
T- So awesome and juicy, tons of tangerine and orange, very light hint of sour white grape, very light hoppiness, very light wild funkiest going on. Just juice.
M- Clean and lightly tart, light in body extremely fresh and crisp, refreshing.
O- the only sour I have ever enjoyed. I could crush thus ll day every day.

Didn't really know what to expect here, but the description on the menu said tart, so I gave it a whirl. And man, am I glad I did. This was maybe the brightest, juiciest sour I've ever had, much more of a sour than a DIPA. If they bottled this up I would buy all of it.
