Draft at Hollingsehead. Pours a rich and clear golden with small head, which says something at Hollingshead. Aroma is light danky pineapple hops with some other citrus elements. Taste is very bitter and dank. Really surprised and liking that as I haven’t gotten a really dank IPA in a while. Very nice overall.

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.

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 Churchill’s 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.
