wedgie9 (2544) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Tasted on 5/14/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Topís. Pours cloudy orange/yellow with a thick white head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is really interesting, with grapefruit, lemon, resin hops, grass, spicy yeast, plenty of funk, and some light bread malt. The flavor is much the same with the bread malt up front, moving to the lemon and funky, spicy yeast, and finishing with plenty of bitter grapefruit and resin hops. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long spicy yeast and bitter grapefruit/resin hops finish.

BeerandBlues2 (11474) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Corked and caged bottle, Anchorage pre-flight hotel tasting. Pours hazy yellow with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is lemon, grapes, farmhouse Brettanomyces, cereal and Pils malt with spicy hops and citrus pith notes. Flavor is crisp cereal and Pils malt, lemon and grapes, pithy citrus, farmhouse Brettanomyces, and a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Travlr (18683) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle from the source (in Alaska, that is). Hazy to cloudy pale yellow color, white head with lacey lacing. Aroma of dusty mango, pineapple. Taste is peppery, dusty tropical fruit. Delicious.

rumproasts (4503) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2015
bottle. hazy golden with one finger head. light body with medium brett funk. quite fruity, though not quite tart. moderate bitterness, but the flavors blend pretty well in this case. strikes me as less of a IPA and more of an hoppy funk-forward saison. good stuff.

mrjez (246) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 23, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2015 Bottle from Asahiya, shared at Craft Beer Picnic. The cork shot out and it exploded everywhere, despite not being agitated. L: was a thick dark orange, tonnes of head, as it settled it looked like apricot juice. S: lots of sweet fruit, hoppy aromas. T: a mix of fruits with a sour finish, plenty of Brett, nice underlying hop bitterness. Good balance. F: very refreshing and tart mouthfeel, not too puckery. Lingering citric taste. O: very enjoyable and Iíd like to see more beers blend these sour and bitter aspects.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3801) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 23, 2015
Mikkeller Invasion Farmhouse IPA, bottle shared by Jeremy. A cloudy vibrant orange gold. The nose is super fruity hops, somewhat artificial seeming. Lovely hyperactive soft bodied beer. The taste is zesty lemon fruity hops. The taste is farmhouse lemon and bready light malts.

Batavi (266) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2015 Fles 750 ml gekocht bij biernavigatie, uitgeschonken in origineel Mikkeller Invasion Farmhouse glas, dank daarvoor nog firmabier.nl. Goudgeel troebel bier met een hoge witte schuimkraag en een structuur van kant, vrij dun, zakt redelijk snel weer weg. Bijzondere aromaís, veel citrusfruit als sinaasappel en grapefruit, tropisch fruit als ananas en mango, florale parfums van lavendel, verder karamel en de typische brettanomyces tonen van vochtig leer en paardendeken. Het smaakpallet is bitterzoet en zurig waarbij deze elkaar perfect in balans houden. Fruitige smaken van grapefruit en ananas, de brettanomyces gist, met tonen van leer, pijnboom en aardachtige tonen. Het smaakpallet is prachtig gebalanceerd met een levendige carbonatie en een licht bittere droge finish. Voor mij de beste IPA tot nu toe, erg lekker. Deed me ook enigszins denken aan de Belgische bieren Orval en Houppe, een aanrader deze IPA van Mikkeller en Anchorage Brewing Company, ook het design van de fles is heel bijzonder.

drowland (7378) - Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2015
4/3/15. 750mL bottle shared by Tim, I believe. Golden orange pour with a nice khaki head, mild lacing. Good aroma, nice Brett funk, mild tartness, tropical fruits, some citrus. Okay flavor, bitter, a bit minerally, mild funk and fruitiness. Not bad.

Alexanderdahl (122) - DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
Hazy gold pour, with quite a bit of sediments. Smells very much like lemon curd and dry. Jammy flavour, with citrussy notes and dryness. Quite well carbonated and full-bodied. Nice Palate!

Delicious. Heady and funky with a long-lasting bitterness of pine and grass from the hops, pineapple at the first taste and subtle brett tang.

mjs (5810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2015
(Bottle, 0.75 l, at laitiís, 20150613) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, grass and mildly tartness. Palate was medium bodied with rather high carbonation. Flavours were grass, pine, sourness, malts, tartness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sour, hoppy and bitter. A tasty hoppy and sour brew.
