Haterade is a bone dry, tongue coatingly bitter West Coast Style Soured Imperial India Pale Ale. Soured? Yes. Soured. We think it might be a first. No - there's no Brett ferment here. Think more along the lines of a Berliner Weiss having a workout using steroids. Think rotten Pink Grapefruit, Pink Grapefruit, Pink Grapefruit. Don't expect to make any friends sharing this beer. They might even hate it. That's OK though: you're allowed to get your hate on. Haters gonna hate. Don't hate the beer, hate the brewers. Hopefully you still have teeth in your head once the beer is gone. The hop resin may have dissolved them. Proudly brought to you by Hallertau and Liberty Brewing. Good times.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
5/5 Would Recommend
Liberty Haterade is a great drop which I'd characterise as like a hoppy lemonade. It's a pretty standard lip-smacking IPA that's elevated by the sourness, but its not overpowering or overbearing. I'd definitely recommend this to someone who was looking to try out a sour beer but didn't want to jump into the deep end of gose's and the like.
