My friends and I went to Eureka! today and I ordered a beer flight. Fourth from the left was Victory Sour Monkey.

Beer Flight @ Eureka!:
Bottle Logic Goldzilla
Lagunitas Equinox
Lagunitas CitruSinensis Pale Ale
Victory Sour Monkey


Appearance: [1] [2] [3] [4] Last, but not least, the Sour was clear and yellow in color.
Smell: [1] [2] [3] [4] The Sour had a more lemony smell.
Taste 1: [1] [2] [3] [4] Finally, the Sour had a sour smell and definitely had a sour taste. 9:58PM PT [F]
Taste 2: [1] [4] Realizing that the Sour was lighter than the Equinox, I drank the Sour after the Goldzilla. It has a tasty sourness. [3] [2] 10:12PM PT
Taste 3: [1] [4] The Sour was a solid sour. [3] [2] 10:19PM PT

[20150827] Apparently this beer is based on Victory Golden Monkey.
