CaraCurtis (117) - Nevada, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Picked up at Whole Foods in Reno, NV. The pour is an orange color and has a very prominent head, white in color – lasts for quite some time and levels off to a thin foamy ring around the glass. Aroma is consistent; it is different and does not seem to hold the same character profile as taste. It has citrus notes, tumbleweed-y/grassy. There are some medicinal (earthy) like characteristics to the beer (like what I find in Immort - but not as strong). Taste is empty for the majority then strikes at the back top of the roof and entrance of throat, hitting the tongue just a tad. Overall, I am very happy I had this beer. IPA’s are one of my fav styles, and I love the magic of Brettanomyces. I find it to be unique and different.

JaBier (5300) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle from Aficonado’s. Clear yellow in color with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, lemon, grapefruit, grassy hop and citrus zest. Malty flavor with bitter brett and lemon before a grassy hop finish.

sunevdj (3425) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle at Mikkeller and friends. Pours a hazy golden with a frothy white head. Smells of hops and plant sap. Bitter with a mellow tartness. Hoppy with aromas of brett. Hops aromas are pine and spruce. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Dry hoppy finish.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends. Pours golden orange with a tall, rocky white head. Smells like lemon peel, brett, further citrus acidity. Taste is empty at first, but builds up. Sweet citrus hops with lots of zest. Spritzy body with a fair whack of carbonation, nice and dry. Definitely worth a try.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy, light orange with a billowing off white head. The nose is very herbaceous with nice spicy hop notes and a good bit of yeast. The flavor is very reminiscent of Anchorage’s Bitter Monk with a few twists. There is a little citrus, notes of grass, basil and a touch of brett. Light to medium body with lots of soft carbonation and a lingering finish. A pretty tasty brew.

dhunter151 (590) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUL 6, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours amber with a thick foamy head. It foamed up a lot when poured. A pretty good Belgian IPA. Funky Brett notes with some citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

canary dog (685) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - JUN 29, 2013
I know this is a really well made beer. However, this style is not for me. Very strong bretty funk up front, with a very long and sharp bitterness that, to me, seemed totally disembodied from the rest of the beer. Overall, very bright and sharp tastes accompanied by a finish that just seems poorly balanced.

mabel (7059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
[5103-20130202] Bottle. Orange hoppy evergreen peel aroma. Hazy, light orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Sour and bitter evergreen hoppy flavour. Medium body is quite hoppy. Delicious, my favourite of the night. (9/4/9/4/16) 4.2

j12601 (7456) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pouring at The Festival in Portland with Kramer, Andrew, and J-Dadmond. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Awesome brett and citrus on the nose. Bright citrus, sweet lemon, gently funkiness. Lots of citrus, lots of funk. This is a beautiful thing.
