3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle back at the hotel at TAPNY courtesy of me. Hooray me. Pours a hazed gold with a medium to large white head. Big fuzzy musk, brett, yeast. Lemon and citrus. Medium bodied, lemon and citrus. Big chewy brett. Dry and funky. Loads more brett on the finish. The bottles can be a bit pricey, but I have loved everything these guys are doing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours straw yellow with a nice-sized fizzy, white head. Nose is brett and lots of citrus. Perhaps a bit of cat piss. Really nice. Flavor is lots of lemon, brett, belgian yeast, and I would confer with those reviewers who have stated that there’s a component similar to a dry white wine. I really enjoyed this bottle.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml. Pale golden body. White, fizzy head, diminishing. Funky brett aroma on top of sweet citrus. Barnyard, tropical fruit, lemon, perfume. Mild toasted grain in background. Flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Dry, dry finish. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I like brett and I like complex IPAs, but the two together are not working for me here. Have to wonder what this would be like without the funk considering the complexity the beer flirts with before the barnyard, lacquer flavors and bitterness overwhelm them.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is very funky smelling more like a saison than IPA, with loads of brett, barnyard funk, horse blanket, white wine, Flavour is extremely dry and funky, with loads of barnyard, loads of brett / very yeasty, white wine (no tartness though), horse blanket and uber-dry citrusy hops. Finishes very dry with loads of brett character. Strikes me more as a saison than anything. Delicious, nevertheless.
