Okay, here is an unusual one: a Sour IPA (whiskey barrrel aged). The best category for this beer is as a " Mixed Style." The pour featured a nice light brown hue that was cloudy and had a light carbonation and head retention that faded quickly. The aroma of this beer was hoppy along with a hint of aged wood. Just like anticipated, the flavors of this beer were wonderfully hoppy and sour at the same time with lingering wood-aged flavors. A nice maltiness with tons of hop bitterness balanced with a nice sharp, tart sourness. With that you get competing, clashing flavors in your mouth --quite unusual, but not unpleasant. It had a light carbonation and a medium body and mouthfeel. Very unusual indeed combining the flavors of hoppiness and sourness in one beer!

* Mixed Style (definition) -  Styles not described elsewhere as Specialty Type Beers, or as a hybrid or fusion beers between other existing styles.
