3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Few sips of girlfriends 1/2 pint. Very citrusy grapefruit tones dry and bitter finish with soapy funky yeasty flavours. Would prefer it to bess less of a hop bomb and more of a strong yeasty beer. Pleasant with well hidden alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This untraditional dipa with brettanomyces was a pleasant surprise. Aroma is ligt sweet citrus, with a yeasty punch. Taste is likewise sweet with a yeasty punch, followed by a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Overall a quite different but really balanced and great dipa. I could definitely get used to this type of brew.

Bottle. Pours a murky orange with thick khaki head and webbed lacing. Nose of caramel malt, toffee, some piney hops, fruit, brett. Taste like a very boozy triple IPA with some brett, Meh

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured a funky shade of orange with a well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up Bretty funk, a blend of fruits, peppery alcohol, and a bit of mango with biscuity malt supporting.. came back to fruity funk on the back of the nose.. interesting. The flavor found tart fruit and floral notes on the tip of the tongue, with dry, Bretty fruits, white spices, and grassy bitterness behind.. finished bone dry and warm, showing some oxidation along with the funk. Medium-plus bodied, dry, and warm on the palate.. the wild yeast took over a bit too much for my liking, and didn’t let the hops work.. OK overall.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Pours a rich golden orange, small amount of off-white head. Aroma is simply heavenly, big blend of yeasty funk and pine. Tart, sour, funky, finish is a big mouthfeel, lively, so well balanced and complex. Warming creeps in just a bit as the beer warms. While this isn’t going to be something I would drink a ton of, it is really effing delicious, complex and rich on every level.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Bottle Shop Canterbury. Hazy reddish amber thin near white head. Strong bretty aroma. Hoppy yes but the brett dominates. Fullish in mouth not overly boozy. An interesting double ipa certainly. Its quite bretty then some belgian tripel over the top and then some hops. Ok combo. Characterful. Brett is a bit over dominant

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Beer temple. Pours cloudy orange with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, horse blanket, some gravy, grassy hops, grapefruit, very weird- a lot going on that normally wouldn’t be. Flavour is heavy sweet and bitter lasting long into the finish, maybe a touch of umami. Full bodied with soft carbonation. A strange beer!
