Bottle shared at Craft Ale House. Pours hazy golden coppery with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is tropical fruit, lemongrassy malt, mild yeasty esters. Tastes tropical fruity, with some notes of tartness, fun, florals, and spicy peppery notes. Lively carbonation and a complex flavor and finish. A winner.

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.

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.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
