750ml, batch 2 April/2012 Pours a hazy golden banana yellow color with a 2.5 finger frothy, pillowy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Complex aroma with a balance of dry oak, musty brett, vinous white wine, earthy spice and citrus hop notes. The white wine, brett and spice characters are most prominent. Zesty pepper and strong coriander followed by grape and light fruit. Musty brett compliments the toasted oak and earthy hops. The hop character is earthy with subtle citrus but is slightly overpowered by the other notes. Iím not picking up much fruit/kumquat but Iím sure itís burried underneath everything else thatís going on. Medium bodied with a very musty, earthy flavor from the oak, brett and hops that dominates the flavor until it warms up a bit. Dry toasted oak, funky brett and coriander followed by earthy and citrus hops and vinous light fruit. Again, Iím not picking up the kumquats but they are possibly lingering underneath everything else. The peppercorn and coriander provide a dry spiciness that compliments the dry, resinous hop flavor. After a while, the white wine and bready yeast notes come forward. Pretty dry from all of these elements and the citrus characteristic from the galaxy hop and sweetness from whine and wit yeast are kind of overshadowed. Slightly tart and dry toward the finish but not sour. More funky than anything else. Pretty complex but could use some more sweetness for balance.

750mL bottle. Poured clear, pale golden with a sticky cap of white head. The aroma picked up white vinous notes, funky, fruity Brett, cloves, orangey hops, and ginger over soft bready notes.. a little pink peppercorn toward the back.. very interesting how the bugs worked on the base beer. The flavor found tangy citrus hoppage and white spices on the tip on the tongue, with supple bread and biscuity sweetness following.. tangy vinous notes, oak, and peppercorns laced throughout.. cloves and banana from the yeast hit about halfway through.. fruity Brett and oak dried out the back-end and really tied the beer together.. long, bitter, citrus-led finish. Medium-plus bodied with high, filling carbonation on the palate.. great balance despite the large amount of stuff going on.. this was excellent!

Bottle batch #2. Pours pale hazy lemon hue with a large white fluffy head that slowly settles to a sticky film and lacing. Aroma is funky citrus lemon and bread/yeast with a subtle spice. Taste is more funky citrus lemon and crusty bread notes with a subtle dry hop bitterness and light cheese woody yeast. Palate is full and fizzy like champagne with a drying finish. Seriously, Anchorage just wont let me down!

750 cc from Caponeís. Pours turbid straw colored, not really gold or copper, but more like a lime margarita color, with big 3-finger white head that ;aces well. Nose is slightly funky assy galaxy hops, with huge tropical fruity pineapple, tangerine, and grapefruit. Tastes citric, with grapefruit, lime, pineapple, heavy assy yeasty funk, and a complex finish. As with all Anchorage beers, this one is delicious.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Aaron a ton for the pour. Hazy orange pour with white head aroma has notes of peach, pear, hints of white fruit with more peach, slight white grape, hints of oak, chardonnay as well. Taste is a mix of nice peach, pear, some slight biscuit, bread, some hints of white grape, touch of oak, finishing with some nice bitter and grassy notes.

Smell is spice, banana, citrus, bread, a touch of biscuit, and grass. Taste is spicy hops, white pepper, clove, pineapple, tropical fruits, and pine. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. Well-balanced, spicy, refreshing and extremely easy to drink.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Bottle @ Stephenís house. Cloudy light yellow appearance with a fluffy, white head. Very nice bretty, vanilla, coconut, pineapple, quite spicy yeasty, zesty bready aroma. A touch chewy, zesty, spicy bretty yeasty, pineapple, tropical fruity, lemon, floral, a little woody, a touch bitter, refreshing flavor. Really nice stuff. Update: drank a year old bottle and it sure didnít hold up for what itís worth.

750mL bottle from Lizardville-RR, nose is some hops with that faint cheese or maybe barn type funk lingering way beneath the galaxy smell..the pour is a light haze with a HUGE bubbly white head, taste is more of the same with a tinge of funk sitting in the back a drier finish than most IPAís too.. not bad

Wow. I must have a bad bottle. The aroma is band aid and feet. The flavor is more band aid and sweaty feet. This one went down the drain. It must have been infected. No hops just crape.
