4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared thanks to scotchzi! Pours a hazy yellow with bubbly white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is heavy on the brett, funky with a hint of sweet citrus. Taste is bittersweet citrus with a nice Belgian funk behind it. Full and juicy on the mouth, almost like a nice wheat beer. Anchorage does not disappoint again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: thanks, Mike! Dingy yellow color, muddled and completely opaque. Creamy off-white foam with nice retention. Aroma is a fruit orgy. Sweet berry, pomegranate, light pineapple, fragrant and a little perfumey. Sweet, almost tart even. Tons of tangerine and citrus, too. Taste is unlike anything, really. Hoppy, but not over the top. Florals, fresh grass, big citrus kick with heavy orange and juicy berry, mango, pineapple, dash of clumpy funk from the Brett. Lots of white grape, borderline vinous and oak notes. Dry funk, light lemon, slightly tart & floral aftertaste. Unique and actually quite good.

10/6/13. 750mL bottle from Grassroots. Deep orange pour, nice khaki head. Crazy aroma - crazy good. Nice funky Brett with a touch of tart and sour, lovely tropical fruits, some bitterness. Big bitterness, surprising actually, with plenty of sour, citrus, lingering dryness, funk, and more. Tasty!

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a hazy golden orange with fluffy off-white head. Smells good too; tropical fruit, hops, Belgian yeast, oak, white wine, and brett. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Awesome juice!

I'm fascinated by this one. It is slightly sour of course. Not a true IPA as a result, but the hoppy bitterness nevertheless comes through. Good. B+

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tipples. Batch #3/May 2013 poured Sept. 28, 2013. Pours a cloudy yellow with small white head. Aroma of lemon zest, pineapple, dry oak, brett, orange peel. Very interesting. Flavor is big pineapple juice with definite Brett presence and lingering oak and pineapple. Bitter is there for sure. Juicy balanced by the effervescent mouthfeel, which makes it feel light on the palate for a DIPA. Very unique beer that delivers on the flavors it advertises.
