3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on 10/07/2012, crazy Redskins and Nats playoff day.
Appearance: Pours a clear yellow gold.
Aroma: Aroma of brett, wheat, citrus.
Taste: Medium light bitterness, funky, light wheat.
Summary: Interesting combination of flavors here, between the wheat, the IPA-ness nad the funk of brett. I enjoyed it, but liked the other Anchorage brews I’ve had slightly better.

I think I caught this one in between IPA bitter and funky brett beer. Pours staw yellow with huge white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is earth and dry. Palate has some hops left but gets pretty dirty. Very thin beer, dry finish. I’d like to try again either fresh or two years old, this one was about 6 months.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opened a bomber that i've had tucked away for just 3 or 4 months. Batch #2, april 2012 says the bottle. Fun beer. Pretty much what you'd expect from the deScription -- 'galaxy white ipa with brett.' Anyway, super hazy pale yellow color, funky yeasty nose and a pretty bitter and peppery mouthfeel. The brett plays nicely with the citrus from the galaxy hops and creates a very juicy texture. Another anchorage hit that i can scarcely find in chicago.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 2. Hazy yellow with a massive foaming head. Aroma is lemon, brett, spice. Taste is fruity (plum?) pepper, straw and spice. Carbonation is very acidic and the mouthfeel is very light. Finishes really dry. This would be an amazing summer beer but its 0 degrees. Still amazing.

Pours pale gold into a snifter. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Funk and oak aromas. Sweet spicy yeast upfront turning to dough, resin and grapefruit before the lasting brett finish.
