3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from HFS. Pours an opaque orange, nice white head. Aroma is wheat, lemongrass, barnyard, hay, floral hop, wet grass hop, dandelion, some booze - complex nose. Flavor is medium acidic lemon, fresh floral hops and tart lemon again on the back end. This is fairly well balanced for the ABV and flavor mashup, wasn't sure how a soured IPA would go but well done. Med body, moderately boozy and sour, lively carbonation, a bit sugary from lactose.

Bottle - this one definitely plays with the lemon side of hops, more than the bitter. Very acidic. Nice, if you like that kind of thing (which I do).

330 ml bottle sampled April 2014. Slightly unclear orange/golden body with a small off-white head. Quite unusually aroma, some malt, chewing gum, lemon and flowers. Flavor has citric fruit, chewing gum, orange zest and moderate bitterness. Medium body and more than less just citric fruit in aftertaste. Strange, sweet, more like a novelty beer. Still fun.
