I quite enjoyed this as a wild ale, but it was so funky that I can’t really think of it as an IPA. Light in color, more funk than any hops in the aroma. Another pretty great beer from these guys. Just wish they were a bit more affordable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Batch 001 from Jan 2012. Pours very clear and straw yellow with a huge head that partially lasts with good lace. Aroma is brett funk, pine, candy lemons, coriander, wheat field. Tastes notes are the same with some pepper. Light sweetness and balanced bitterness fades to a cooing astringency. Body is very soft, soapy, and light with a slight wood feeling. Something about this just doesn’t call to me but it is good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle, split with dwm1034. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a huge white head. Not a gusher, but it took a while to pour. Aroma is pine hops, fruit, funky. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, some citrus, some funk, very yeasty, with a yeasty, bitter finish. Not sure how great a taste of this beer I got. I think a lot of the sediment ended up in my glass, but the head on the glass really forced my to take my time pouring.

Split bomber with sherm1016.....THANKS. Pours, despite attempts to moderate it...with 3 inch foamy head and lots of yeast released. Definite funky / sour taste...a bit too much yeast bite for me...but that’s the "price you pay"....

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I was very excited to try this beer, but I was not impressed. Pours light like a bud, but with great head and lacing. Aroma is heavy pine needle and some funk. taste is complex with tons of pine and citrus hops, yeast, fruit, and spices. I respect the innovation, but it just didn’t work for me.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice slightly hazy yellow blonde color witha giant frothy head that sticks and slide through the length of the beer. On the nose straight horseshit, old blanket, grass, citrus, brett....mmmm. On the palate there is a great hop presence that gets interesting when it plays with the earthy flavors of pepper, oak, and lots of yeast character. Refreshing but so very complex... the flavor jungle keeps you searching through the lengthy finish !

Poured from 750 into a tulip. Pours a clear straw-yellow color with a foamy head.
Very interesting and bretty aromas of spice, lemon peels, tropical citrus and funk.
medium bodied, but on the lighter side. Very good feel with fresh flavors of lemon peels, funk, and tropical fruits.
This was a really tasty belgian IPA with a bretty touch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Hazy golden orange body, large white head, solid lacing. Nose is full or orange, lemon, brett, oak, and floral tea. Flavor is similar as the citric notes and the brett and oak balance and accentuate one another. Medium to light bodied with an invigorating and refreshing carbonation, crisp cleansing bitterness. Very nice.
