Rating number 666 for me. Me and Silky drinkin’ the good shit on a Friday night. Hazy orange amber. Strong eggshell head. Nose is beautifully complex. Funky warm orange citrus with clove. Taste: Nose is the best part of this beer. Unfortunately. Honey high funky sweetness immediately becomes sharp aspirin. Not much lingering or complexity.

Nose was an interesting and arguably cohesive mixture of a bright, dry hoppy freshness and funky, solvent-like, nicely bandagy fumes with pretty evident brett-influence, with sharpness assentuated by the hop bitterness. Flavors however are not well put together in my opinion. Flavors are a bit muddled...there’s touches of the brett, there’s touches of the hops, but they don’t combine that cohesively, really. Really, it somewhat comes across as an abrasive powdery problem. But not too much of a problem...but really, I have never been a proponent belgian-styled ipa’s, so I’m the wrong guy to care.

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2010
750ml bottle. Pours deep orange with a foamy tan had. Aroma is of hops, funk, cloves, citrus, and breadiness. Taste is very biscuity with hops, citrus, and cloves. Very acidic taste. There is a lot funk to it. Lingering sweet hop character. This beer is extremely earthy. Very sharp, harsh taste. Mouthfeel is very bready and heavily carbonated. The bread tastes stale, the hops are overly resinous, and the entire beer just did not work for me. I did not enjoy it that much.

douglas88 (5839) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 2, 2010
A cool beer shared at the Utah tasting May 1st 2010. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium fluff of head. A very noticeable brett-infused nose; barnyard funk, sweet hops. The flavor is funky bordering on sour, lots of sweet hops though, grave-aged just sounds awesome. I liked this. Light wood, lots of funk and hops.

I saw some dude walking around with a Bullfrog bottle at DLD2010. I flagged him down and begged him for a pour. Golden yellow pour with white head. Aroma of hay, leafy hops, funk, citrus. About in that order. Flavor was sweaty, hoppy, funky, with lots of lemon and pale malts. Pretty awesome.

Bottle shared at DLD ’10; I’m not sure who shared it, but thanks! This was a welcome departure from the mostly massive beers we’d been sampling all day. Pours a cloudy gold color with a finger-thick white head. Brett immediately jumps out of the aroma, with notes of lemon citrus, sour funk, and grass. The flavor follows suit with the Brett-wild yeast thing going on, as well as some grassy hops, citrus, and pale malts. Light-bodied, with active carbonation and an acidic mouthfeel. Dry on the finish. Cool take on an IPA.

BBB63 (5964) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2010
Bottle at DLD 2010, I spotted them from quite the distance and immediately wanted some if for anything to break up the maltiness of the day:

Hazy golden hue with an okay head and some lace. The aroma has notes of brett and lacto with some lemony, chessy and dank vapours. A bit of a pale grain tone as well. The taste starts twangy and pronounced wild yeast weirdness but that mellowed out quickly showing some more of the IPA character of acidic and grassy flavors. some grainy and even woody notes. The mouth feel is lively and refreshing, dry tannic finish. A very solid brew and met my expections, hit the spot.
