4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Variegated golden brown color, thick tan head with good retention, solid lacing. Aroma of dusty brown bread and light citrus, with a touch of spice. Taste is an odd but interesting combination of bitter and sour that pretty much works, with a peppery finish that just a bit too bitter. Overall, a nice try that is certainly unique.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pour on tap at One Eyed Bettys, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of sour fruit, sourred hops, hints of caramel, some funky grainy notes with a touch of oak, not that appealing. Taste is a mix of sour grass, grain, biscuit, caramel into some weird chemical, plasticky note, hits of yeast. Bleh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2014 vintage bottling. Pours lightly hazy deep orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart cherry, green apple, lemon peel, tangerine, pineapple, red wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, light pine, leather, musty funk, light pepper, light vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, hops, and oak barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of tart cherry, green apple, lemon peel, tangerine, pineapple, red wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, light pine, leather, toast, musty funk, light pepper, light vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Good amount of fruity/oaky tartness and slight bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart cherry, green apple, lemon peel, tangerine, pineapple, red wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, light pine, leather, toast, musty funk, light pepper, light vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, oak barrel, and hop flavors; with a great malt/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately acidic, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Sour DIPA. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, oak, and hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV with the balanced acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

Had a glass on tap as part of a flight in Bigalora A2. Delicious, not overly sour or funky, but nice depth of flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with thin ring of white head. Woody, leathery aroma, stramberries, funk, light bretty notes - hops appear to be pretty dead here, no idea on how old my bottle is. Taste is woody, woody tannins, better hop flavor than aroma, tangerines, strawberries, quite fruity. Palate is medium bodied, you could say light for the abv, not much carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Deep dirty orangish straw, fine haze, thin to moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Seems tart, bright, funky on the nose.   Noticeable wood too.   Sour start, dry, oaky, very surprised that this is only 24 percentile.   Guessing its gotten better with age.   A bit acidic, gueze or lambic like.   Hops make an appearance on the backside.   I was really surprised with this one.   Doesn’t stick around long tho.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Reminds me a bit of a lambic on the finish, with the dry acidity.   This one worked for me!   Nice work Arbor!   Thanks for the bottle Kevin!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a tulip. This is at least six months old, but it could be much older. Got this from a buddy who had it for an unspecified amount of time.
4.25 A: Opaque orangish brown color. Lots of carbonation, so four fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is pretty good and tons of lacing is left.
4.25 S: This smells absolutely amazing. Supremely fruity with a refreshing hoppy backbone. Orange and peach lead the fruitiness. Herbal and floral hoppiness and lots of it. This truly is a wild IPA. I’m actually quite surprised how much hop aroma has stuck around. Loads of outdoorsy brett funkiness.
4.0 T: Taste is also very good. Hops pair well with the brett. Funky outdoors with floral and herbalness. Slight tangy twang. Peach is the major fruit flavor with wildflowers and dry rotten logs.
4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Nice spritzy carbonation with some creaminess to boot. Good here. Goes down really easily.
4.0 D: This is the type of beer that you can drink for a whole night. Good flavor, no problems, and super smooth.
Serving type: bottle
