From Portland, Oregon Breakside Brewery has produced their La Tormenta Dry Hopped Sour Ale.
La Tormenta pours a nice, hazy yellow-orange that almost glows when held up to light. The head is a stiff white foam with good lasting power.
The nose is all about the sour orange citric acid. It smells great, thought it is a bit one-note.
The nuance of the flavours is where this beer really shines, right up front there is sour orange with great funky farmhouse flavours right underneath. Outside of the citric acidity there is a more red wine vinegar acidity that slowly creeps up on the palate that is accompanied by a musty flavour. A really nice, complex set of flavours are at play and it is worth sipping and contemplating.
Overall a nice sipper.
