All sorts of things were going on here, almost all of which were in balance. Didn’t really pick up on the Brett, but the fruit was there (not in an overwhelming manner either). Slightly light in the body with a watery mouthfeel, but otherwise exceptional. Tropical fruit and wheat were the principle flavors. Exceptional aroma.

750 ml corked and caged bottle purchased at Zipps in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Batch #2 APR/2012 on bottle. Opens with a very loud pop. The pour is hazed white yellow with a billowy 4 inch white head. A bunch of tiny effervescent bubbles climb from the center of the glass. The aroma is rounded peach fruit, hops, along with super well integrated dry leather Brett. There is a touch of grass and coriander, but this is about the hops and Brett. The taste is dry Brett musty leather up front, followed by citrus floral hop, woodiness and the finish has an interesting black pepper spice to go along with the dry Brett. The palate is medium to light bodied, active soft natural carbonation and a woody bone dry Brett finish. Super nice beer, right up my alley. Glad I found it and had a chance to try it.

Pours a clear golden yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some thick lace. Aroma is a mix of citrus and tropical hops with some Belgian yeast esters, light fruit, pepper and other spice, oak, and some funky Brett. Starts off with some citrus and tropical hops with some grapefruit flavor and some spices and Belgian yeast esters. Through the middle some oak, funky Brett, and bitterness come through alongside a bit more yeast esters. The finish is a mix of citrus and tropical hops, light spices, funk, oak, and some bitterness.Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and lightly spicy finish. Very drinkable. Really nice White IPA. The spices and the Wit yeast really compliment the Galaxy hops nicely. The Brett also adds some nice complexity.

Uniquely beautiful hazy pineapple with a huge, fizzy 4 finger head (tulip glass). Intensely multilayered aroma - brett brett brett, very floral/herbal spices like coriander, grapefruit and pine hops. Tastes less balanced than it smells - strong brett character and very floral, not nearly as hoppy as I would like. Feels a bit thin as well. I am really glad I tried this brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

ben4321 (4093) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Location: 750 ml bottle from Buy Rite, 9/11/12

Aroma: The nose has a good amount of brett, with wheat, herbal notes, and some citrus hop
Appearance: It pours a bright golden color with a thick, fizzy foam of white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is a really nice, and fairly balanced, combination of funk, wheat, and bitter hops
Palate: The body is medium, it has a both a slightly creamy, and slightly fizzy feel, with a lengthy, dry finish
Overall Impression: I wasn’t paying attention the so-called milestone, but I should have rated this one at 2400, because this is a milestone worthy beer. Anyway, this was another really, really good one from Anchorage. I’m starting to sound like a broken record on these guys’ beers, but out of the one’s I’ve tried they are 4/4 on being world class-level beers. Obviously, I really enjoyed this one.

Bottle at yespr. Hazy yellow coloured with a huge white head. Fruity aroma of exotic fruits, brett and hops with notes of barnyard. Fruity flavour of hops, brett and citrus peel. Hoppy finish.

750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Opens with a tremendous pop, but did not gush. Pours a enormous, slowly settling white head, with extensive lacing, over a cloudy yellow (SRM 3) body........nose is heavy barnyard, light lemon, light pineapple, hints of melon.....taste is heavy barnyard, lighter citrus, hints of pine, finishing with a lingering sour bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation very high. This is a very complex, light, refreshing but big beer. The Brett is very obvious, dominant, but delicious. I think a great deal of the variation in rating is a function of the in bottle fermentation. Be careful opening these bottles as the pressure is really really there. BJCP 8/2/14/4/7
