As part of my mix-ups, I had this one on the 14th, but was frankly too tired to write up the post at the time. So, here’s the details: this was a dry-hopped sour, which is a neat idea – certainly something I’ve never tried before!

I didn’t know what I was drinking (had forgotten to check beforehand), so I wondered if this was a Grapefruit IPA, because it really had that grapefruity sourness, as well as the astringency I would associate with actual citrus. Since I’ve discovered that it was a sour, this also makes sense. The head retention was fantastic, carbonation was spot-on, and the colour was a nice golden.
