3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz. bottle served in a DFH signature glass. Shared in line at the FFF XV Anniversary Party.
A:Pours a clear, deep straw with some orange undertones. A one finger frothy white head forms on the pour and leaves some splotchy, spotty lace on the way down.
S: Some light citrus hops are present and slightly tart orange and apple peals. Nothing outstanding.
T: Taste is much better. Great tartness and some sour fruit skins are balanced with a nice sweet citrus hop undertone. There is a little woody oak with a slighty vinegar-like pucker on the backend.
M: Light bodied with a slightly drying mouth and tiny pucker on the finish.
O: The dry hopping really added a nice citrus hop undertone to this and I’m glad I was able to still get a little pucker out of it.

Pours orange-ish gold with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, white grape, mandarin, maybe a bit of peach, and tartness. Taste is a very crisp, fresh tartness, more of the same fruits plus some grapefruit. Like a tropical warhead candy right before you get past the sour coating to the sweet part. Refreshing juicy palate with a nice relatively light body. Delicious sour that has a great balance between the tartness and fruity hops.

2013. Pour cloudy with little head, golden colour. Smells sour and sweet, like a mid summer pitted fruit, with hints of fuzzy peach candy. Puckering sour mouth feel backed up with a enough bitter flavour to be refreshing and sweetness to be enjoyable. Very refreshing, a good summer beer.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Porus hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of sour/funkiness, floral and citrusy hops, and some caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same with a really cool blend of everything. Average texture. A good beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a keg. Beautiful orangish yellow color with minimal white head. Full bodied. Fruits and flowers galore. This might as well be a sweet perfume.
Sour. Not sweet and sour, just sour. Reminds me of candy with peach mango orange and hops. Very light film left over, I feel like the sourness puts my saliva glands on overdrive which clean up the palette pretty fast.
Overall a little too sour for my taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent orange, medium head. Hoppy grapefruit citrus aroma. Slightly grassy. Wow. Delicious. Immediate tartness that goes down surprisingly smoothly with a light texture. The sour is the most prominent aspect, but notes of grapefruit and lemon are present as well. Lingering bitterness and a bit of hops to finish.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Cloudy amber with a lasting head of small bubbles. Smells of a wet fall, gourds, hops and sour apple. Smooth great medium body with a sour fizz that climbs up your nose. The sour lasts.

Bottle from Dak, thanks buddy! Crisp yellow/orange pour, aroma is semi sour, with a nice wallop of hops. Taste, not mind blowing on the sour level but very nice and crisp, mild hops, tropical fruit, very well rounded and very sessionable stuff for a sour, hope they are bringing this is in soon so I can drink more of it!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber pour with a friend - have enjoyed this in the past, but never rated it (and think past times have been in tap form). Anyway - pours orangey - gold with a robust white head that holds its own (particularly so for a sour/wild varietal). Aroma is bold - fruity (especially tropical - definitely mango!), sour/tart, slight yeastiness - inviting! Flavor is excellent...lots of tropical fruit with a puckering sour note throughout - not overpowering, but omnipotent, and deliciously so. Pick up some lemon notes at the finish, and the amarillo hops are definitely noted somewhere with both aroma and flavor. There is a malt backbone in this beer, which is why I think I enjoyed this so much - a balanced sour is not a common find. Palate is medium bodied and oily - an easy drinker as the sour notes leave the residual dryness. I couldn’t drink a ton of this in one sitting, but I could drink it very frequently - excellent offering!
