Siren Pompelmocello Sour IPA

Another from the third Needle & Pin craft beer selection box. This is one of the N&P’s beers of 2016. A sour IPA, hopped with Enigma, Bravo and Apollo to create the biggest grapefruity hop profile Siren could muster, but they’ve also included grapefruit zest and juice for good measure. Added lactose rounds things off for a smooth and sweet touch. Let’s dive in…

Well, they are not wrong about that grapefruit! There are white wine notes on the nose, and then you get a big hit of extreme sour tartness. To me, this is not an IPA but a very interesting sour pale ale with a big grapefruit hit. Definitely one to check out.
