750ml bottle. Pours a straw gold with a huge white head. Aroma is very funky. The brett is very strong with this one. Leather and earth and basement aromas. Pine and citrus hops peak out,. Big, strong and funky. Flavor is dry with medium bitterness. Big, funky flavors, tons of barnyard and basement. Earth, dirt, leaves. Some oak and spice notes. Itís just so incredible funky! Really awesome. This is what wild and Belgian ipas wish they could be. Bone dry, funky, bitter, delicious.

TheEpeeist (3465) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
25.4 oz bottle. Milky yellow with a puffy white head. Nose is lemon custard, coriander, earth, banana and pepper. Juicy and resiny, dry and crisp with delightful fizzy carb. Taste is slightly sour orange, the kumquat?, lemon sorbet, grass and bitter coriander with hints of vanilla oak. Everything blended seamlessly here; a great example of a white IPA.

VsXsV (2641) - LinkŲping, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2012
Bottle bought at Whole Foods in Las Vegas. Hazy, pale yellow liquid with big white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, spices, lemon peel, barnyard, wheat, bubblegum, citrus and some light banana. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of spices, tropical fruit and cloves. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Nice and drinkable.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle at Denisí. Hazy pale yellow, creamy white head. Amazingly pungent, rich perfumed nose, herbal hops, definite "NZ" hoppiness, ripe cumquat, lemon zest, urinal cakes, white pepper. Lovely soft funk, juicy lemon, really smooth bready malt, quite saison-y, soft lemony sweet finish. Absolutely incredible.

Suttree (5388) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Sampled at the VIP tent at the Knoxville Brewfest. Yellow, with a big white head. Smells peppery, with some white wine notes. Nicely funky,, grassy and hoppy flavors. I honestly think I could drink this all day.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Bottle poured at the Festival with andrew. Pours a murky orange body with white lacing. Aroma is dank herbal notes, fresh floral hops and light fruit. Mouthfeel is nice with notes of funk, fresh herbal hops, earthy tones, light fruit, oak, and brett. Another knockout by Anchorage.

Bomber poured into tulip. Pours one of the most beautiful golden Iíve ever seen! Head is about a finger-thick. Aroma is strong barnyard/brett, citrus, pepper, and a little woody (oak which contained white wine??). Hop is very well blended in this very complex IPA and is pretty floral. Taste is pretty all-bitter, with a medium-long finish. Body is lighter than I wouldíve expected after reading this beerís description. Texture is midway between thin and slick, carbonation is soft and fine. Overall: perhaps one of the most complex, if not the most complex IPAs Iíve ever had. You have to be open-minded for those barn-type aromas for this one. A really, really well done beer. Way to go Anchorage!

steview (1035) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Smells like a hoppy Belgian -- Iíve done this before... Anyway, the body is a murky straw color, very lively at first. The head is white, big, and airy, then dissipates quickly to also leave no lacing. The flavor is spiced, woodsy, and semi-sweet. It feels airy and dry, almost chalky. Iím apparently not sophisticated enough to understand why this is an IPA at all. Itís a style-bender and I like it, but thatís about it. Itís something to pair with food if I buy it again so it has that limitation. This would be great if I could drink it as it is, like what an IPA is to me, but this isnít it.

Got this corked and caged bottle at THE LOCAL Beer Bar in Eureka, CA, Shared it with a couple other folks including the proprietor who pronounced it very good. This poured a straw color with good sized white head that left good lacing. The first thing that greets you in the nose is the brett. Very powerful. Then you get lemon-grass, citrus, pepper, and some oak. Very lively aroma that promises a lot. Medium in body, with a very alive and impatient mouthfeel. The flavor is powerful, and led again by the brett, but there is a lot to smack the taste buds around, with lots of spices mixed in with the oak, lemon, and flowers. The finish goes on and on, being dry and nicely bitter. Very nice beer.
