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.

A really nice beer courtesy of Brandon. Surprising flavor considering it bills itself as a bourbon barrel IPA, but its a sour through and through. Pungent, a nice mellow funk.

Draught @ Ashley’s, Ann Arbor, MI
Pours hazy deep golden/amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, tartness and some dried fruits. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter and light sour with a long fruity, tart and bitter finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Bottle, 75cl, at Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor. An unclear dark amber colored beer topped by a small light beige head. The aroma has a touch of vinegar, some oak and berries. Some caramel in the flavor, with oak, vinegar, tannins and berries. Tart, full bodied and nicely carbonated. Lasting finish. A bit too straight forward this one, but nice. Interesting with the bitterness showing up at the very end only. 150615

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at The Oak. Copper-orange pour with a small head that fades to a messy film. Aromas are burnt plastic, rotten fruit, leather, red wine, and basement funk. Tastes like rotten fruit and red wine. Yuck. Pretty dry and a little grainy too. Not good.

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.

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.
