Thanks to JodiB for this one. 16oz can (of course) poured into 14oz teku. Poured a solidly turbid brownish orange color, with barely any head, thus no retention or lacing. A solid layer of sediment sank right to the bottom of the glass, and there were a lot of floaties in suspension.

A very tart scent took the lead on the nose, with some citrus hops in the background. No malt, grain or yeast. Pretty similar on the tongue, nice tartness, citrusy hops is what ya get.

The body is the typical light of the style, and had a nicely dry finish. Drinkability was good, but don't know that I'd drink two in a row. Overall, a nice enough brew that hits the aroma and flavor notes they were aiming at, but, damn, this beer is ugly.

Apricot pink-yellow, no head.
Smells tart and fun.
Overwhelmingly tart and fruity. Points for being super full-flavored, but ultimately a little intense to what purpose? Dial back the lemon dial up the rhubarb, maybe we'll have something interesting.
Spritzy and bright.
Drink if you like sours. Not if you like IPAs.
