3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
clear sparkling pale gold with a tall large-bubbled white head. perfumed white grape and brett band-aid / plastic in the first whiff, developing more spice and fruit notes as it opens. lively carbonation, light body, mild to medium tartness, mild oak presence. wonderfully explosive but still soft carbonation across the middle, itís surprisingly full and rotund for having such a light and delicate malt base. dry white wine and floral esters and brett must abound. a bit herbal at times, then more floral, then more wheat-focused, then a combination of white grapes and brett that comes across a little like botrytis. shape-shifting, restrained, balanced and delicious.

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.

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. Didnít get to drink one fresh but I love whatís 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 donít even know where to start.
Maybe my favorite Anchorage yet. Will definitely seek out a fresh one next batch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 thatís what letís the hops shine.
