3.94/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

16 oz can poured into a Weizen glass.

Appearance
Hazed-out, cloudy blonde. Head fizzles out immediately.

Nose
Grapefruit, orange zest, lemon, lime, and Sunny D.

Taste
Sunny D and acidic orange juice. Light lactic sourness that isn't overbearing. Lemon juice, grapefruit zest, and dirty lime pith. Some earthy bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, juicy, crisp, refreshing, lightly tart, and slightly bitter.

Overall
A very well put together Sour IPA. The restrained sourness compliments the hops but continues to let them shine.

3.7/5  rDev -3.1%

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is murky gold, head is thin and off white with a little bit of lacing.

Smell is blend of biscuit/wheat, tart sourness leaning towards lemon juice like, citric hopping profile.

Taste heads way down the tart, citric juice end of sourness, bittering hops are low to moderate but the flavoring seems to be strong because the citric flavor is high. Oats and wheat smooth this beer out just enough to moderate the sour and hoppy flavors.

Mouthfeel is sharply tart, not overly bitter but quite acidic.

Overall definitely a spin on the hoppy/sour beer that is interesting. Flavor nears hopped lemon juice, but the oats and wheat give it depth to balance that puckering potential.
