A - Pretty, slightly murky orange/gold, nice fat off white head, leaves slowly to disk with lots of cling lace.

S - Ok, this is where things get a little different. Not much malt in smell and there is some pretty prevalent hop action, but there is also a sour, tangy element to it.

T - Nice malt, good hops, but that lemon tart element is there. Doesn't remind me of a IPA in that sense.

M - Medium body, malt upfront, bitter back, then that tart lemon lingers.

D - Interesting beer to try. Not what I expected, but not bad, either.

Pours a fluffy two fingers of head on a cloudy dark straw colored body.
The aroma has lots of danky lemon, barnish smell, but nice.
The taste has bold lemon bitterness but lots of malt to hold it up. I like it.
The texture is thicker with moderate carbonation.
Enjoy it.

A - Ow damn not up to a good start the color is decent deep amber yellow but the head is all wrong, way too carbonated making over two inches of head that is way too bubbly and fades out fast.
S - Ow man its very medicinal smelling with a sour tart cherry smell and some fruity hops.
T - Pretty terrible ugh why did they bottle this? It has some hops in the finish with some balance but the overall taste is sort of sour almost infected. I may pour it out.
M - light to medium, very on par with the style.

Overall I wish this beer was more "jagged edge" on hop bitterness and not infected sourness. Please don't buy this.

A - Cloudy orange gold with tons of head, about 3.5 fingers, big and fluffy, some of sediment on the bottom.
S - Sweet malts that give off a sour scent too, definitely astringent, grapefruit, under-ripe tart cherry, some weird spices too, some clove?
T - Extremely tart, some mild spicy traits, a hint of diacetyl, really sour grapefruit and cherry flavor.
M - Tart and clingy.
O - Bleh, this is not good at all, really weird and unbalanced IPA, too sour.
