3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle, batch #2, bottled 4/2012. Big, thick foamy white head. Half hazy pale yellow color. Some splotches of lace. This is a very interesting brew. My second from Anchorage Iíve tried (after the wit), and this is just as interesting as the first. Really nice lemon-peel, peppercorn, and light pine aroma, very soft and smooth carbonation. Light wood notes. Definitely a zesty sweet taste, lightly spicy. Enjoyable, interesting, unusual IPA, for sure, but wouldnít buy it again besides for the novelty, considering the price

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Quite a remarkable beer. Really, really funky, tart, citrusy (mostly lemon peel), hoppy all at once. Even a good black pepper note. Just all-around solid. Really excited by this stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bomber from Woodmans in the Falls. Pours a very foamy, unclear, very pale yellow. Popping the cork exploded carbonation and bottle conditioning. Lots of spongey foamy lacing. Aroma has spices, sweet fruits, cherry and funk. Taste is of sweet fruits, sour cherry, spicy cinnamon and a vegetal herb-y flavor. Little sign of any IPA characteristics. Quite light with some strong flavors. Finishes sweetly tart and earthy with some spicy length. It is an interesting brew - a sour/wild ale I would think, or possibly a fruit beer - just not really to my taste interests.

My god this is a great beer. These guys are expensive but put em up there with Jolly Pumpkin and Hill Farmstead as my favorite funky beers. Just great complex and hoppy, bretty, yeasty, and amazing.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow color with a medium to large frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast sour citrus and herbs aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy Sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded by this standout beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle split with James, Pat, and Bobby. Pours a very light golden color with a ton of white head. Aroma is a great dusty brett smell. Taste is really light, maybe a little bit of citrus hops mixing with the brett. Really hard to rate this kind of beer against other "ipas", almost isnít fair. Still this and Anchorageís other offerings are some of the most unique beers i come across and i like them.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I donít think I would drink a lot of this but I do have to say this was the most amazing beer I had in a long time.......just very over the top in a lot of ways. Pours a cloudy lemon color with a huge white pillowy head. Aroma is citrus hops, white ale spices, coriander, peppercorns, lemon. Extremely carbonated and dry. You taste coriander, lemon hops, peppercorns. Just a taste explosion.
