This is one proggy label. Pours a cloudy amber with one finger of soapy white head, streaky lace down the glass. Smell: a whiff of the JP house funk to start, then lemon-lime, straw, ripe apricot, floral perfume, vague tropical fruit. Taste: at the base there's the usual JP brett plus bugs.. it's not sour per se but there is a mild tartness on the back end. Atop that, lots of flavor...tangerine, guava, lime leaf, dried mango, cracker, a bit vinous, grassy and tart citrus in the finish. Light-medium bodied, low but creamy carbonation, drying finish. Very tasty soured IPA.

Bottled 1/17/17

Hazy saturated orange; drippy lacing, cirrus skim.
Hoppy aroma of sandalwood and dried papaya.
Taste is lightly tart and tropical, mango, lemon, brett, white wine, dry grassy bitter finish. Medium bodied with ample carbonation, balanced tartness and bitterness. Overall this was pleasant and enjoyable, could use a touch more amped up sour fruitiness.

@ Sam's Quik

Thick hazy orange appearance with a dense layer of white froth on the surface. Smells of lemon and grapefruit, grassy greenness, apricot, and woody spice. Leathery JP funk and a touch of cereal. Bright hoppy notes along with a dry woody spice and flowery funk results in a tasty, yet somewhat harsh flavor. Citrus rind, juicy tartness, pineapple, flower petals, dusty leathery funk, and hay. Medium bodied, dry feel. Nicely funky - I wish the hop flavor was a bit deeper.

Short Review. I thought this one was pretty nice, it had that typical jolly pumpkin funk with just enough hoppy flavors and it had bitter and tart combo on the finish. It was slightly rough around the edges, but I liked it and I thought it was just a little unique for a JP beer. I would get it again.

Cloudy golden pour with a white head. Nice juicy citrus and apricot aroma. Taste has a really nice balance between fruit and funky sour flavors. Can taste some tropical fruit, orange juice, barnyard funk and light grass flavors.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/17/2017. Pours lightly hazy medium orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple, mango, melon, guava, berries, peach, apricot, pepper, pine, oak, hay, straw, herbal, wheat, biscuit, light leather/lacto funk, and yeast/oak/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, citrus/tropical hops, oak barrel, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple, mango, melon, guava, berries, peach, apricot, pepper, pine, oak, hay, straw, herbal, wheat, biscuit, light leather/lacto funk, and yeast/oak/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy/citrus peel bitterness, yeast/tannic oak spiciness, and light lactic tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple, mango, melon, guava, berries, peach, apricot, pepper, pine, oak, hay, straw, herbal, wheat, biscuit, leathery/lacto funk, yeast/oak/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/funky/acidic yeast, citrus/tropical hops, oak barrel, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/tart/spiciness balance; with no astringent hop or puckering flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from tart/bitter/spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/tannic, bready/grainy, and lightly acidic/resiny balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.5%. Overall this is an awesome sour IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/funky/acidic yeast, citrus/tropical hops, oak barrel, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, despite the increasing bitter/tannic/drying finish. Well rounded sour/wild complexity with balanced hop presence. Nicely funky and tart all around; not overly bitter, tannic, or drying thanks to the malt presence. A really enjoyable offering.

Hooped up, hazy and slightly sour. Well, this collab is hopped up, for sure, but it feels muddled and the sour/funky-notes can't seem to break through the pounds and pounds of hops that have been sacrificed for this brew. Pours a murky (beyond hazy) orange color out of the bottle - looks like freshly squeeze tangerine juice; thin bubbly head reminds us it's actually a beer. Aroma is tangerine, orange, mandarin orange, peach and (barely) some green apple. I can't pick up much tart/sour flavor beneath the pile of hops; it's there, just a little, but can't quite surface and the funk is non-existent. Finishes with a juicy bitterness more akin to a fruit-forward IPA. I suppose that's how I would describe this beer - it doesn't resemble a dry-hopped sour but is more akin to a juicy IPA with a shade of tart. Pretty good beer but it's way hoppy and not what I expected.
