Centennial and Simcoe, Batch 2, 2013. Clear pale yellow with a 1 1/2 finger off-white head, fair retention. Big rosy floral nose with fruity tangy pineapple behind, light biscuit malt. Flavor is more pineapple-y with a nice tart component, the malt adding just a tinge of sweetness to complement. I also get the slightest hint of iodine, though I may be mistaken. Earthy bitterness peaked at a 3-4ish, sourness a 3. Moderate carbonation with a light body. Very tasty and refreshing. A bit Orval-esque, but this has a more tartness.

CloakedDagger (522) - - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours an almost clear golden with a dense and lacing off-white head. Bretty aroma with quite some citrusy hops up front. Medium body, sweet fruitiness, rather yeasty but also a less than pleasant medicinal touch. A distinct hoppiness. 271213

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Sweet trade bonus beer courtesy of adnielsen. The bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that supports a bright white head. The aroma offers up apricot, peach and mango like fruitiness as well as some lime citrus tartness, acidity and yeastiness. The taste begins with a mix of sweet mango and peach and then it quickly gets into citrus tartness and acidic lime like notes. I like how the acidity doesnít dominate here but the malts and hops are more forward.

Bottle from Gurd at Gurdís bottle tasting evening. Very pleasant experience. To start with itís an excellent IPA, but the nudges of Brett add an extra layer of interest. Nice mingling of notes. Liked.

Aroma of is full on bubble with sweetness and maybe a hint of orange from the citra hops. Opaque, hazy gold with white head and good lacing. Taste is hoppy bitter meets sour with some drying oak influence. Great balance. Great beer.

Yorker (1098) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy yellow with some sediment and a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are brett, pepper, citrus, and floral Ė with a dry finish.

Similar to what Prairie Ales produce, more of very funky stuff with hops. Enjoyable and similar rating, though not my regular cup of tea. Thanks Jason B.

Bottle. Hopped with Galaxy. Pours hazy golden colored with a everlasting egg white head. Aromas of brett, wood, tropical fruit, pineapple, grapefruit and earthy notes. Dry, salty and bitter flavor. Great brew..

Brandman (2059) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has some sour fruity bubblegum and grainy toast. Flavour is bit floury malt, bit peach schnapps on acid. Very different fruitness than your regular brew.

Hazy orange golden colour with a big frothy white head. Aroma: Yeast, mild funkiness, fruity hops, mild sweetness and malt. A balanced and nice aroma. The flavour is... wow! Itís very nice... sourness, sweetness, tropical fruits, funky yeast and floury malt. Tasty.
