Parallel 49 Brewing Bodhsattia Dry Hopped Sour Ale Review Parallel 49 Brewing Co. – Bodhisattva Dry Hopped Sour Ale Review

The Parallel 49 Brewing Company has taken hops and sour beer (two rather popular things) and put them together in the Bodhisattva Dry Hopped Sour Ale. Pouring this beer from the 650ml bottle it has a colour of golden straw and has a finger and a half’s worth of dense, relatively slow to settle head. Smelling the beer it has a kettle sour sharpness that is quite acidic. Next to this are big fruit tones of citrus, pineapple and passion fruit in a rather fragrant beer. Tasting the beer the sour starts off mellow and builds but never comes across as strong as the aroma. Don’t get me wrong, it is definitely sour but wheat tones and the big tropical fruit and a sweetness factor mellow the sour and add a nice balance to the brew. You can thank the hops for much of the flavour here and while intense, are quite smooth and easy going at the same time. For a rather high alcohol beer with big hop flavour the Bodhisattva is a delicious and gateway sour where even someone that isn’t a big sour-nut can likely still appreciate the flavours of the brew.
