2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2nd January 2010
Cloudy amber beer. Frothy white head. Semi crisp and dry palate. This is pretty sour for an IPA - yeasty Belgian sour. The sour start does lead seamlessly to hops, a little orange. Finishes dry and sour with a sour bitter aftertaste. Okay but not an experience I would like to repeat.

Tasted in 2009. Golden orange and hazy with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is tart and fruity with some spices and a light funk from the brett. Taste is of citrus, brett, light hops and spice.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2012 Bottle, thanks to mike. Pours a cloudy amber pur, medium white head, small lacing. Aromas of brett, leather, perfume, lavender, floral spice. Taste is the same, with bretty grapes, figs, floral perfumes, herbal mint, refreshing warming, dry finish. Very refreshing and crisp, almost like a shot of rumple minz. Cooooo.

Bottle shared by MrChopin. Pours clear orange with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is funky and barnyard yeast, plastic and diaper yeast with biscuit malt and earthy hops. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, funky yeast with light malt and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL thanks to MrChopin. Clear deep orange with a soapy yellowish head. Thicker lace. Nose is sweet cream butter and Hawaiian sweet rolls with orange peel. Taste is tangy, sweeter, big time rose hips and lavender plus rose water perfume. Very delicate. Brett oddities like plastic phenols and hay/straw with topical melon fruits. Very nice stuff. Phenols can be overwhelming.

Golden amber color, cat pee and horse blanket, sour tart nose. Tons of funk. The hops and malt arenít even present. The mouth is full and malty but the amount of Brett just dominates the entire profile. Some grapefruits, and caramel. Excellent bitterness. Excellent tart dry finish. Wow. Very idocratic. Interesting.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a nice orange copper color with a very large white head that sticks around for some time and really clings as it goes down. Nose is a pretty good dose of fresh citrus hops alongside some really earthy, funky Brett. The taste is a bit more subdued, with some of the bitterness balancing out the Brett a bit. Still quite funky, but more restrained. Nice, dry and slightly bitter mouthfeel. One of these days Iím going to have to finally make it up for a Bullfrog bottle release. Iím sure I wonít be disappointed.

A-pours a lightly hazed deep amber color with a creamy off white head.
S-the nose has notes of sweet tangerine assertive hops as the brett is softly integrated behind being slightly leathery.
T-this has a malt presence the nose did not have, earthy malts play role as the leathery brett lies behind. the back end adds the hops, light citrus aspects with a soft bitterness.
M-this has a full syrupy body with a light carbonation and soft clean finish.
D-well balanced ipa with a nice refreshing citrusy finish and well integrated brett presence.
