Bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, floral hop and oak wood aroma. Medium to full body with a slick tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style and good beer for #9000.

BoostIPA (1198) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Pours a cloudy straw color with minimal head. Aromas of fruity hops and sour notes. Taste is similar - expressively hopped bretted IPA. Pretty dry and very nice. Fruity, slightly sour, floral hops. Like an amped up Orval. Fucken great.

375 ml bottle to oversized snifter. Looks good; a hazy orange with white lacing. Smells solid; hoppy, yeasty, oaky, and bretty. Tastes like it smells with a crisp mouthfeel. Good beer.

12 oz bottle. #344. It pours a bright orange color with a nice white head. The aroma has lots of pineapple, salty leather, garlic and grapefruit. A little oak is present as well. A real onslaught of hop aromatics and brett funk. Very nice. The flavor is full with tropical fruit juice.. pineapple, mango, orange, grapefruit.. much more fruity than the aroma would suggest. The brett funk and phenols are kept at a minimum here, but are definitely tasted. A bit floral and funky in the finish. Overall a really nice brett IPA. I’m interested in trying other batches now…………………………..#462. It pours golden with a white head. The aroma is more spicy hops with sweaty brett funk. Some dried apricot. A bit less aromatic than the 344. The flavor has some tropical fruit, apricot and spice. Brett in the finish. Less juicy than 344. 3.7

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottles shared by Drew, two different ones. Thanks! 343-pours a hazy gold with a white sticky head. Nose is kerosene and oil, strong resin notes that are a bit offputting. On tasting, much better. More citrus, enough malt to back it up and some pineapple funk. 3.9 462-more pine like and citrus. Very clean nose with a crispness. Strong lemon and a toasty note. Clean and refreshing, very drinkable and balanced. Good bitterness and malt and fruit balance. Superb. 4.3

Bottle 462 in red on the label. Pour has a golden color and a ring of white head on the glass. Aroma has some brett, sweet golden base, tropics, and green hops. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation a bit low. Flavor has a nice golden base beer, brett, tropics, pineapple, dry citrus, perfume, and earthy dampness. Interesting beer.
