Awesome! The dry hopping really sends the aroma to a new level with tons of citrus peel. The appearance is more golden amber like an ipa for example. The taste is lots of that citrusy hop notes followed by a mouth clenching sour. The finish is dry, sour, and quick...light bodied and really good. Earlier versions of this were not my favorite, but this year’s (2015) is excellent!

With Zach, pours a yellowish orange pour with a nice off white head. Nose is hoppy , with Brett and some citrus and apricot, Taste is tart and pungent, but not over the top and very drinkable for sour lovers. Finishes on the tasty sour notes. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with a white head and tarty aroma with hop notes. Taste is sour and tart up front, along with hop and citrus notes which lead into the long, sour, tart, fruity finish.

A vintage 2014 Lips of Faith on tap. Light hazy yellow body. Smells a lot like a freshly cut orange. Big sour grapefruit taste. Hints of oak and orange. Another great sour beer by New Belgium.

Pours orange in color with a thin white head. Aroma has alot more hops in it than I expected, tropical hop notes with a lot of mango, hints of sour funk and acidity underneath it all. Taste stays pretty balanced between sour and bitter, mango, lemons, funk. Pretty good, not sure if its worth what I paid though.

Bottle @ SF 5. Bright amber like a nice whiskey. Smells like dried flowers and dried apples. Very pleasant flavor.

Also had this at stumbling monk.
Aged 2 years mellowed the weird wild flavors. Hops and yeast complement each other nicely.

(Tap) Quite interesting. It’s a good mix of flavors. I think sour beer folks would like it but it’s a bit too sour for me.
