Intro: A 500ml can, with a best before date of 8th November 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very lightly misty golden colour, with a two finger white head that had good retention and left some nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Light tartness, guava, passionfruit, mango and grass.
Taste: Tart, guava, passionfruit, mango, lemon juice, then it just goes really sour with nothing to balance it.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: A self described NEIPA, but really, nothing about it screams NEIPA. I believe it was created with Garden of Eden (which I actually enjoyed) in mind, but this was just a strange one for me. Aromas were good and fruity, but taste just went full on sour after starting out encouragably with some nice fruitiness. There was no balance to the sour and zero bitterness. A sour Fruit beer comes to mind here, but good ones have more complexity than this pure sour bomb.
