Pours cloudy lemon yellow with a decent bubbly white head. The aroma of sweet grass and zesty herbs, really nice. The flavor of light lemon citrus notes with young Brett not bringing the funk this early, more light bitter notes easy on the palate.

Bottle. Rating #21. Bright golden yellow pour with a nice white head. Orange peel and lemon, a bit of funk for sure, barnyard. Light sweetness, a bit acidic up front, but very smooth in the finish. Decent stuff, but no signs of an ipa to be found. (2218)

Bottle from Rare Beer Club. Aroma is lemon, Galaxy hops, spice and Belgian yeast. Flavor was grassy hops, brett, wheat, lemon, and Belgian yeast. Lots of variety here, as it's a mixture of styles. I love the creativity in this beer, very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle from batch 1 Jan 2012. Pours with a hazy yet luminescent, glowing yellow hued body (paler side of things), with a massive white head, great retention and insane sheets of lace. Voracious carbonation and full retention. Amazingly delicious aroma. Complex! Tons of tropical fruit and citrus zest. Huge galaxy hop character which is awesome by itself. Tropical, brett C (ish), white wine, peppery, sage, phenolic, perfume. Mouth watering anticipation from the aromas. Lightly tea like, coriander, curacao orange, lots of mango, floral, passion fruit. Insane! Flavors are bitter, soft, floral and a bit tea like. Jasmine, brett C, tropical fruit and galaxy hops. Huge, bright citrus, oily. Insane flavors. Zest and pith linger in the finish. Some decent bitterness, with a pithy component that lingers a bit too long. Also some lingering mango and passionfruit flavors. Honey suckle and white wine. Very lively carbonation, light bodied, long duration, mild tannin, lingering bitter, complex, yummy, unique and insane!

Anova167 (283) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - MAR 4, 2012
This should be an interesting one. White IPA - Kumquats, peppercorns, Brett, oh my! Semi-cloudy pale yellow, unbelievably light for the big aroma coming from this. The nose is initial peach and pineapple hop notes. Also present is cut grass, spice (coriander, I presume). Almost no Brett presence detectable on the sniff, but this was just bottled Jan 2012. Flavor is as unique as the aroma. This almost has a hoppy Saison quality...my pallette might not be developed enough to break this down. Soft bitterness with some of that peachy flavor. Then there is almost a slight tartness with a bit of pepper and spice. Finish is fairly short but a nice floral citrus hoppy note to it. Unique for an almost utter lack of malt character whatsoever. This isnít an IPA per se, so this isnít a rating for the style. Very dry and very very good.
