Funky one - not what I was expecting. Has an organic real home brewed kind of character to it. Kind of sour and moldy tasting. More sour and muddled than bitter. Does not remind me one bit of an ipa. At first was very put off but it's kind of growing on me but not really. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
