4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From tap in Healdsburg. Grapefruit in a glass, with a whole lotta hop citrus attitude. LOVE LOVE LOVE Mosaic hops and rye, and this does them up right. I wish I could drink this in Texas everyday. Pegged my meter.

Tap at GABF 2013. Poured a hazy straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is year citrus fruit and a hint of barnyard. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a yeast liqourice bitter hop citrus fruit palate. A most unusual beer. I was expecting an APA but it was anything but.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap. Bright, hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is pine and bitterness with soem citrus (perhaps grapefruit) over a clean and grainy malt backbone. Taste is mostly bitter with pine and a dry malt backbone. Clean, dry mouthfeel. Fairly aggressive with the bitterness but not overdone. Great IPA and my favorite beer amongst the Sour Fest leftovers.

Tap at Churchillís Sour Fest. Pours low haze, glowing straw with huge white lacing. Nose is dank, fresh, juicy tropical hops, bright white pepper. Taste is big coriander, soapy like cilantro, loads of floral hops. Aggressive IBUs moving to something too soapy for me, harsher bitterness.
