Review: Hopworks Urban Brewery Stoner Fruit Apricot Sour
Stephen recently rounded up three IPAs from Portland’s Hopworks, but it turns out the operation also has its hand in other styles, including this sour brewed with apricots.
The beer executes on its name pretty much dead on: The attack is bold with apricot and sour, vinegary notes, though the latter are filtered through a ton of juice, running from lemon to stone fruits — sweeter, but not overly so. The sourness is enduring but just short of mouth-puckering, ultimately making for the kind of sour experience that comes across more like a cocktail than a beer.
