16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 12/18/2018. Pours very hazy/murky/cloudy deep orange/amber, light copper/reddish color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy raspberries, fruit skin/seed, tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, plum, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, green apple, blueberry, gooseberry, strawberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, light peppercorn, pine, vanilla, cream, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, floral, grass, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of raspberries, fruity/acidic yeast, citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, and moderate lactose/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy raspberries, fruit skin/seed, tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, plum, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, green apple, blueberry, gooseberry, strawberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, light peppercorn, pine, vanilla, cream, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, floral, grass, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, woody, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness; and fruity/lactic tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy raspberries, fruit skin/seed, tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, plum, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, green apple, blueberry, gooseberry, strawberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, vanilla, cream, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, floral, grass, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity/acidic yeast, citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, and moderate lactose/bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with no puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness, and lacto/fruit tang/tartness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, adidic/tangy/tannic, and fairly crisp/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an excellent fruited sour IPA. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity/acidic yeast, citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, and moderate lactose/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/acidic/tangy/tannic/drying finish; not overly bitter/lactic. Feels like a milkshake sour, with Galaxy/Citra/Mosaic. Awesome balance between jammy raspberries, lacto complexity, and juicy/vibrant/dank/earthy hops; with a great balanced lactose, and wheat/oat/malt backbone. Mild residual sweetness with crisp bitter/acidic dryness. A really enjoyable and highly impressive offering for an experimental brew. Not overwhelming on any aspect.

Smell: Much like analingus, it starts out with an aggressive smell, masking the pleasure to come.

Look: Upon first glance, the beer has a smegmatic quality--red with floating white particles. Gotta say tho... this shit looks DOPE if you throw it under a warm light. Save money on a lava lamp and buy this tasty boy of a sour. A snow-globe would be another apt comparison, but a blood snow-globe---like some inventive merch you bought at that shitty stoner metal show your loser friend convinced you to go to last month (I'm looking at you Eric [@BloodErik1993]).

Taste: Of course, this beer has a lovely raspberry flavor. Surprisingly, it is augmented by vanilla, strawberry, blueberry, chocolate, pomegranate, apple, cinnamon, coconut, cotton candy, sour diesel, purple haze, bubba kush, super lemon haze, mint, Virginia tobacco, creme brûlée, berry, mango, cool cucumber, and vinegar tones. It is truly a crown juul of sours.

Mouthfeel: This beer prompts one to feel the same tingles felt by a teenage boy just beginning his sexual experimentation. It isn't the first time: the tingles aren't that strong. But it's early enough---the 3rd time maybe---that this particular experience could rock his cosmovision forever. This beer is a strong older woman and a possibility... for renovating growth.

In all honesty, this is an amazing sour, give it a go.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on January 7, 2019. Look is thick and hazy with lots of floating debris. Nice tart raspberry flavors and aromas.

16oz can. Poured out a clear, reddish orange color with a small, white head. As I emptied the can, there were lots of floaties. It smelled of raspberry, vanilla, cream and lemon. Tart raspberry taste with a hint of sweetness. Vanilla is present, too.

16oz can, snifter glass. Bright slightly cloudy pink body, one and half finger white head, short retention, no lacing. Smell is raspberry, light lactic acid, a touch of earthy wet grain, touch of passionfruit, and perhaps a slight acetic vinegar aroma. Not much in way of hops, but the fruit and tartness is nice. Flavour is sweet fruity raspberry, sweet grain and perhaps a touch of lactose slickness, light yogurty lactic acid. At the same time, this isn't raspberry yogurt; there is a bit of a mildly herbal, overripe fruit on the backend, probably a combination of the raspberry and the presumed hops (since this is supposed to be an IPA beneath all this). But it's hard to tell that there is an IPA lurking beneath. Lighter medium bodied, good carbonation, refreshing, drinks more like a gose or wild ale than a sour IPA.
