4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Awesome aroma of fresh hops and a hint of funk. Medium bodied with semi soft carbonations. Nice pale malt backdrop that really showcases the Galaxy hops, which are loaded with exotic fruit goodness. Finishes semi dry and spicy. The brett character is young, but in this case- works perfectly by emphasizing the hops and not drying it out too much. I am shocked at the low ratings. One of my favorites of the tasting, and perhaps a top 10 IPA for me. Loved it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. Golden with big fluffy head. Quite a bit of citrus. Moderate hops with medium bitterness. Brett is very mild. The carbonation is quite prickly, to the point of distracting me from the flavors. Still, very good.

Drink them fresh or drink them with a little sitting time. Either way, good stuff. Galaxy hops and brett? You had me at galaxy hops and brett. Don’t say another word or you’ll ruin the mood.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy yellow. Long lasting thick head resembles lemon meringue. Smells of lemon and urine, yes urine, which is typical for a beer with brett. Very funky aroma. Taste is just as funky. Dank, lemon, urine and pepper. As the beer warms I taste young bitter coconut. The bitterness is subdue and doesn't linger. Very refreshing with a light body. Every sip is a new experience as the beer changes as it breaths and warms. If your into funky beers this ones for you.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, batch #5, July 2013. Didn’t get to drink one fresh but I love what’s going on here. In the glass: straw with some vague white islands, a more prominent head ring and a few stray bubbles. Still getting the galaxy hops and the coriander surprisingly clean on both nose and taste even after 7 or so months. The brett has clearly done some work and pulled everything together. Funk is solid but clean -- musty without being overpowering. Aroma is especially complex. There are worlds in there, I don’t even know where to start.
Maybe my favorite Anchorage yet. Will definitely seek out a fresh one next batch.

On tap. Pours a cloudy, pale gold with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a great citrusy aroma with a very different spicy, yeasty, and slightly okay flavor that leads to a slightly bitter finish over a medium body.

750mlchugged by myself. Pours a almost clear light yellow color with a puffy white head. Wow - the aroma is a very complex web of orange citrus, sweaty gym socks, white pepper, bitter hops, funk. Taste is similar with. Ore of the emphasis on citrus and sweat. Bone dry with a lingering bitterness. Very musty and jagged. This beer is phenomenal.

759ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a lot of frothy head. Lots of belgian yeast and fruity aromas. Wonderful balance of belgian yeast and slight hops. Slight sourness to balance a mild sweetness.

Explosie van smaak, door de brett en dryhopping combi. Behoorlijk wild en toch fris, wel een zware jongen.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Uber. Pours slightly cloudy straw yellow with thin lacy white head. Aroma is fresh funky hops - earthy, grassy, herbal. Taste is similar: clean thin malt with a sharp hop bite. Dry, oaky finish. Perhaps not the best IPA around, but the Brett, oak, and hops give this a really unique super fresh hop taste. Could use a bit more malt for me, but maybe that’s what let’s the hops shine.
