Description 

After the never ending battle between the hop heads and sour lovers we decided to appease the two. Using Vic Secret, Mosaic, and Citra hops this brew is juicy, sour and extremely refreshing. Sour and hops in perfect, thirst quenching, harmony!

Jam Up The Mash by Collective Arts Brewing is being evaluated as a Mixed-Fermentation Sour Beer (Category 28B) from the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.

This unfiltered beer pours a hazy bright yellow with a white head that leaves a thin stand of fine bubbles on the beer. The aroma is complex with a sharp tartness up front followed quickly by orange and a touch of lemon, sour peach leather and a light grassy character from the dry hopping. A light bready, grainy malt character develops as the beer opens up.

The flavor features a prominent, but not aggressive, sharp lactic sourness with lemon peel, light pineapple, melon and a hint of savory character as the beer warms. A light bready, grainy maltiness emerges mid-palate along with a very light hop bitterness. Light residual sweetness in the middle shifts into a medium-dry finish. The sourness is refreshing and lingers long through the aftertaste. The fermentation and dry hopping creates a complex fruit character. The medium body, very light alcohol warming and moderately high carbonation rounds out the overall profile.

This is a well-balanced and harmonious sour ale that leaves you wanting more. The dry hopping creates a very pleasant citrus quality that lends itself well to the sourness. A very enjoyable beer that checks the boxes for style. On a side note, you will also enjoy the wonderful artistry of the labels, as they are both fun and imaginative.
