3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Bottled 750ml. It pours a murky golden beer with a tall mountainous white head. Tropical fruit, melon, belgian yeast and some vanilla showing up in the nose. Full bodied. Relatively strong carbonation. Beautiful lacework. Peppery on the swallow. Dryish finish which is reminiscent of coconut, melon, fresh cut bread and nutmeg. Flawlessly brewed. But I am not a big fan of belgian style double IPAs.

this beer reminds me so much in every way of the orval trapist ale. This is also brewed with brettanomyces. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle from a 2012 batch. Pours a clear golden shade with a dense, pillowy white head. First up on the nose are some peachy hops that have been waiting two years to escape. Then Chardonnay plays in. Grassy and floral too. Taste is lemon, lime, tangerine, white grape. Malt is balanced really well. The barrel really does wonders for it, but I’m not sure if the whole Belgian aspect comes through. The brett hasn’t taken over as much as I expected. Very nice but I think I’d prefer a young bottle.

"nice blend of funky brett and a s@@@load of hops. citra hops stand out, among others. belgian yeast, brett, and hops make this beer dry as a bone, but intensely flavorful and smooth all at the same time. just as i thought their beers might taste the same, this one stands out a bit."

Bomber shared. Omfg pours a murky yellow with with white head. The aroma is funky Brett bready citrus malt, liquid heaven. The flavor is funky bready citrus. This beer is amazing one of the best overall beers ever. The flavors are so nicely blended. There are not enough adjectives for this beer.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden orange with a lively, white head. What a nose; lemon peel, orange, lots of brett, lemongrass and some sourness. The age has let the brett take over. The flavours are a step aside from the nose, more focused on the farmhouse than the citric sourness. Lots of hay, damp wood, herbs and spices. Dry finish with a lingering bitterness. Impressive.

Don’t rate beer often. Am a IPA fan. Imperial IPA is hard usually too syrupie or punch u in the face hopps. This tastes like a perfectly balenced nonimperial IPA. Have given to people who hate ipas and even people who don’t care for beer. Consensus is we love it.
