3.82/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.75

32 oz. half growler filled at Gogh Gogh Coffee in College Station, TX, around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017
poured into tulip at home around 1 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017
(a little online research says this beer is likely over a year old ... possibly 14-15 months old)

L: pale gold, over 90% clear with just a hint of mistiness, pushes up a thin cap of offwhite foam for a head; enough activity helps it keep a very thin collar of offwhite foam; no stick or lace

S: classic Jolly Pumpkin fingernail polish/remover, sharp, acidic but also sweet; citrus fruit peels, kumquats; as it warms, peach and apricot, watermelon, tart cherry cheesecake

T: tart lemon, lemon peel, orange peel, a little of the vinegar/fingernail polish remover from the nose and then a ton of grain midswallow through the finish ... like a corn tortilla chip stuck in your farmhouse ale; cantaloupe, watermelon rind; a hint of the salt hangs around, gives it a slight gose feel (only slight)

F: waterly, light, running pretty low on carbonation and I don't think it's from this half growler, which is my best in terms of saving carbonation

O: impressive considering this beer is old, at least 12 months old; it has the overall feel of a good Jolly Pumpkin farmhouse ale with that added grain note in the flavor; the tartness is sharp at times, but the beer hasn't turned to vinegar ... not even close; the range of notes in the nose is a big highlight

Bottle stamped 06/30/2016 BL001

Hazy gold with a thin bubbly head that dissolves to nothing. Aromas of straw, barnyard, spicy wood, lemon, and flowers. Sour funky flavor...orange juice, damp wood, lemon, light peppercorn, and a little trailing salinity. Pretty light bodied, puckering acidity on the gums. Good...
