Another great beer from Anchorage, who are starting to become one of my favorite brewers. This pours a hazy yellowish color with a nice white head that fades to a patchy thin layer. The aroma is quite citrusy, showing lemon and mango. Notes of dust and funk join in with lots of white wine. Very light pine. This is fizzy in the mouth at first, before the hops dry it out in the finish. A touch of bitterness but nothing extreme. The flavors mostly mirror the aroma, offering plenty of citrus, bretty funk, and french oak. Some grassy notes too with straw, and grape. Certainly a unique IPA but that’s totally expected if you’ve had any of their other offerings. Very nice beer. Perhaps not quite as amazing as a few of the others but we’re splitting hairs here.

750 mL bottle picked up at Connecticut Ave. Wine and Liquors in DC. Pours a Hazy yellow pour with a gorgeous sudsy head and a touch of chill haze. First note I get off the nose comes from the wit yeast (orange zest and spicy coriander), followed by tropical fruit notes of pineapple and mango, bits of sauvignon blanc and light oaky barrel and earth, and bits of lemon, peach, apricot, and yeasty dough. Just a gorgeously complex and refreshing nose. Flavor brings increased spiciness, particularly the peppercorn adjunct and dryness from the barrel, to the forefront. Lush stonefruit and tropical presence remain presence but fade to the background, with dry white wine and sharp hop and spice bite becoming prominent, particularly on the finish. The palate feels to be medium-high carbonation, light and refreshing body, and stunningly dry and lingering. Probably incorrectly classified as an IPA, but good lord is this delicious. Anchorage is putting themselves up theres with the best brewers in the country.

Courtesy of craftycarl21- thanks dude! Hazy golden pour with a massive white frothy head. Huge earthen cheese cloth and farmy brett with tropical and nectar fruits abounding: mango, passion fruit, guava with a great background of apricot and peach. Orange peel and coriander round out the subtleties with hints of scallion and sweet green onion coming through in the very end. The flavor holds massive earthy brett with a bit of astringent tannic acidity, and great proliferation of the stone and tropical fruits garnered in the nose. Medium body with an effervescent and fluffy body. Cheesy dry finish. It seems as though this brewery doesn’t make a bad beer.

Light 10 karat/hay-colored pour with a rocky ivory head that showed not a single bubble of carbonation inside the body. Wierd! Nice meld of citrus, fruit, and funky brett. The sour twinge is undoubtedly noticeable but offsets the orange peel and lemon zest nicely. Refreshing and different. Yum!

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2012
From the 5/2012 3R6P tasting. +++Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a murky pale yellow with a large fluffy white head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was musty and bretty with notes of lemon and pepper. The flavor was dry, very bitter and tart with moderate lemon and lots of brett. The finish was long, dry, tart and had lingering lemon and brett. Nice.

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours cloudy yellow with a huge off-white head that won’t go away and a floral aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a major yeast presence and an oak finish. Just a touch of grape and a lot of barnyard from the brett. Quite complex for an IPA and very tasty.

Bottle, tasted 04/29/2012. Golden straw colored pour, voluminous rocky white head, frothy retention and lacing. Aroma of light lemon wheat malts, sharp pine mixed with herbal spices, white pepper, round grapefruit and light white grape, vinous quality, slight funk. Taste is dry, yeasty, with pale malts and peppery herbal bitterness. Light palate, spritzy. Another nice offering from Anchorage.
