3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 750ml Corked/Caged: When I popped the cork it let a very faint pop sound, lets hope that was not a bad sign. Poured a hazy bright orange with some floaties. The head is white and sounds of carbonation bubbles can be heard, makes me feel better about the original sound of the bottle. Aroma is very strong fruit hops, a light spicy medicinal hint as well. Taste is a bitter citrus grape fruit with fresh hops, spicy peppery feel to the tongue and dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Cloudy yellow pour with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma provides muskiness, citrus fruit, pine resin and shortbread. Medium-bodied with a sandpaper mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is pleasantly bitter and dry. The brettanomyces worked well to eliminate most of the residual sugar, but surprisingly, this isn’t over-attenuated. I feared it would be. Nice IPA. Bottle provided by growler!
