MadDogMD (213) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Nice golden color w/ big pillowy white head. Aromas & flavors are all of the good parts from a funky farmhouse brew & west coast style IPA. Dank, barnyard, grapefruit, funk, sour nectarine, dry, pine. A perfect combo & balance of both styles!

unclemike (2274) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - OCT 20, 2014
lear golden orange with a foamy white head. Nice big citrus hops, barn yard funk, musty grain, and straw aroma. Tastes of orange, apple, pear, straw, and caramel with a dry musty and earthy Brett funkiness to the finish. Bright slightly sticky palate

mpersinger (349) - , California, USA - OCT 17, 2014
From corked/caged bottle with painted label showing a green dripping block face. Pours brassy golden with good clarity and white halo of tight bubbles that show some lacing. Lychee and passion fruit aromatics turn to mild shellac, grapefruit pith and funky cheese on the nose, white grape juice and fresh pineapple sweetness with basement flavors, drying-- almost bracing-- towards finish, lean body and champagne-level carbonation; an elegant showcase of brett and tropical fruity hops. Pithy bitter notes coat the tongue as it warms.

M82 (296) - Kansas, USA - OCT 17, 2014
A mildly hazed sunny yellow body sits beneath a 1.5" tight white frothy head falling slowly to a solid ring and a few low lying dots and blobs of lace

Flavors and aromas are funky, juicy, spicy, and tart, white pepper and woody spice merges into juicy tropical fruit, fresh white grape, and chardonnay with basement and juicy sock brett components on a silky smooth, creamy yet drying medium body with a building, bone dry residual full of the previously mentioned components, plenty of damp, dusty basement, a touch of sweet tart

2014 750ml cork and cage with melting head sculpture screen printed label served at 50º into Orrefors Beer Taster

BuckeyeBoy (2837) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2014
750ml bottle thanks to Adam. Pours out a hazy golden amber topped with a fluffy head. Nose is lots of tropical fruit brett and a nice sweetness. Taste is more of the brett and the pleasant tropical fruit hops.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours cloudy golden / orange with a sturdy white pillowy head. The aroma has fruity hops, pineapple, cobwebs, wild yeastiness, mango, smooth citrus and cream. It has a medium body that’s pretty lush and has lots of soft carbonation. The flavor starts with pineapple, rich malt, earthy brett, mango, spice, light sulfur and pleasing mushiness. The finish has cellar must, fruitiness and powder. Great funky IPA.

Natai (92) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a crisp gold with a formidable white head and good lacing. Aromas of grapefruit and apricot, which carry through to the flavor. Only slightly sour on the palate which enhances the grapefruit. Crisp and surprisingly refreshing.

slowrunner77 (5975) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"Not only is this substantially funky and dry, but the hops seem to have been ramped up from what the original Invasion was. This is a lovely, if a bit overpriced, bottle of beer. VERY similar (as hoped and expected) to Anchorage Bitter Monk. Bitter, fruity, dry, funky. Nice!

Huhzubendah (2618) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 21, 2014
The beer is light orange and thoroughly hazy with a white cap. Aromas of citrus, lemon peel, grass, funk, earth, hay. Interesting beer. Hop character and brett funk work well together. Intriguing and enjoyable.

BiiruBierBeer (179) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Tropical hop smell. Medium carbonation with a bit of foam. Intense hop taste that I don’t like.

Ontape (318) - Valley Village, California, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle with the sweet monster artwork. Pours a hazy light orange with white head. Aroma is fruity hops and fruity brett mainly. More farmhouse elements come through on the taste -- zesty and funky with some pineapple. Finishes quite dry with a long funked-out finish. Interested to see how this one develops, the hops don’t dominate so I think there’s some potential for aging.
