Sour Hopzz from Panimo Hiisi - Glass on table

From the SOPP: Sour Hopzz

Sour Hopzz

As the Panimo Hiisi couldn't sell any of their beers at SOPP on Wednesday due to a broken cooling system I went for the Donut Island Sour Hopzz. 

It started with a citric smell but besides the citric smell I noticed: yes, you know it,: HOPS. The sourness actually stays for a while while the citric tastes for longer. Best described as funky zesty hoppiness. Well balanced, well carbonated. Tart, fruity and of course sour taste. Hop tartness stays at the end a little. 

I found this of all the Sour beers offered at SOPP the most refreshing one. It combined the hops with the sourness very well. I'd like to see more of those.
