UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 Pricey bottle. Pours a clear glowing auburn orange with a tall foamy brett sudsy off-white head with sticky lacing. Aroma is typical Mikkeller plastic, toffee, strong citrus and brett, a nice combo, familiar but unique, piney, cotton candy, pine needles. Flavor is strong buttery toffee, plasticy, grapefruit, dry pine needles, finishing woody cheesy with lingering dry wood/cheese. Medium bodied, still fairly sugary, corse large active fizzy carbonation. I like the aftertaste the best.

750ml brown bottle, corked. Cloudy orange/amber coloured with a solid, tall creamy head. Some soapy lacing. Aroma has some orange-like sweetness up front, some hemp notes, brett. Malt has some nutty qualities, earthy, woody, grapefruit and floral hop flavours. Medium bitter finish, lasting grapefruit hops aftertaste. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Great mix of bitterness and brett, which to me equals a dangerously drinkable, and no sign of the 8% alcohol.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 5, 2009
Pours a hazy orange with an off white, frothy lacing head. The aroma is pungent with west coast hops. Citrus, honey, brett, resin, licorice, and soft fruit on the nose. The taste is an explosion of flavor. Citrus rind, barnyard funk, pine, resin, licorice, and honey. Very malty, bretted, imperial IPA-Belgian strong ale.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2009
Pours Clear brown with a tall thick creamy head.Great aroma very hoppy, fresh and floral with a hint of brett. The flavour is very complex. Strong hoppy flavour like an american IPA strong and flaral with a very welcome bitterness, and very citrus as well. you can really taste the Amarillo hops. The finish is a bit malty with the sourness of the brett coming through. There is a slight chocolate flavour mid palate and the whole flavour lingers and really stays with you. This is one of the Best Beers I have ever had. It is as if they have taken my 2 favorite styles, (American IPA, and Orval) and forced them together like an amazing beergasam that starts out soo strong and intenses, them amplifies, and finishes in the most interesting way. And then stays with you all night. All in all Awesome.

Dear Penthouse, I never thought it would happen to me! I found myself at the GABF standing next to a playboy centerfold, now I can find out if the curtain matches the drapes. It doesn’t and this bitch has a yeast inflection I think they call it brett. Weird scent for an IPA. Weird flavour for a Brett beer. Aroma is soft woody Brett. Flavour is big woody hops with a soft Brett undertone. Some aluminum. Short finish with lasting soft hops.
