To take up the challenge and make a 100% true Brett IPA can very easily become a fatal attraction for the Brewmaster. Once you get acquainted with Nelson Sauvin’s fruity and seductive personality, along with Bretts irresistible, overpowering, alluring and very charming nature, it will ensnare you and drive you mad obsessing over how exactly you can create the perfect desirable tangy, funky, crisp, tart flavor in ya mouth.

Bottle at home with Susan. Pours a clear golden yellow with some sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is citrus grapefruit. Flavor follows nod is somewhat bitter and very crisp and clean. Some taste of cardboard that seemed a bit odd. Finishes clean and dry. Very nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle, from Dutch’s. Pours a completely cloudy darker orange golden color. Off-white head, that is pretty big and active during pours. Fades after time to a good thin amount, leaving nice, thicker lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, effervescent carbonation. Lightly slick. Good bright citrusy kind of grapefruity aroma. Kind of spicy. Some tropical, floral notes. Moderate zesty taste, kind of tangy, lightly tart. Moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter taste. Pretty yeasty. Yeast seems to leave kind of a bite in the finish, at the top of the throat. A spicy, peppery bite that kind of drags things down and makes the end of this a little difficult to finish.

Tap at Happy Gnome. Bright and hazy yellow pour with a clingy white head. Lots of citrus hop and a nice Brett element. Drinks easy and not too astringent. Maybe a hint of darker fruit too - something plum-like. Good stuff.

Pours hazy gold with a moderate frothy white head. Aroma is citrus hops and tangy presence of brett. Taste is big citrus hop bitterness with a dry, tart brett finish. Very nice.

eaglefan538 (2890) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Poured a hazy orange color with a nice huge white head, retention ok down to a thin covering, good lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, spices, funk. Flavor of tropical fruits, tangy notes, funk, bread, bitterness, light fruits, resin, earthy. Not cloying sweet, but the Nelson Sauvin just gets to me after this much intensity, the brett magnifying stuff too much. I like the brett ipa concept, but need to try a different combo, flavor more overwhelming than the bitterness, not a great thing. Mouthfeel was full and pretty nice.

RickTheRick (375) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
Dorée penchant sur l’orangé, assez trouble, une mousse à première vue généreuse s’estompe toutefois rapidement. Le bouquet est fort intéressant et vivifiant avec ses effluves sauvages et ses odeurs de fruits exotiques. Toujours aussi fruitée en bouche, c’est très juteux et doux, l’amertume étant assez discrète. Les bretts confèrent une légère acidité, rendant cette bière délicieuse et facile à boire. Un vrai délice.

Not sure I really approve of Brett yeast in an IPA, but this isn’t a bad combination. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with thick, pillowy head. Aroma is marked by fruit esters, sort of like a wheat beer, with some spicy Brett funk in there as well. Flavor is hops--some citrus and some pine--with the distinctive Brett flavor--the tang and the tartness. Well-balanced, unlike some of these that overdo it on the Brett; this is pretty well combined.
