4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: The beer is a dark golden color, very nice looking. It poured with about 3 fingers head which lasted about a minute.
Smell: The main scent I pulled from the beer was Mango. This is unique but once again very nice. There is also a pine smell in the background.
Taste: I taste a distinct grapefruit along with a subtle nutty taste. The hops is very present and lets you know it is there. In the end you get a farewell bite as you swallow. This is definitely in my top 5 IPAs.
Mouth feel: The feel is relatively smooth. It feels like something you could guzzle all night long.
Overall: This far exceeded expectations. This is my first Westbrook beer and now I will be seeking them out as much as possible!
Serving type: bottle

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellowish orange with a thick soapy head. Aromas of yeast, bananas, apples, and some spices. Tastes rather fizzy on the tongue and has a bit of a funky bitter back end thanks to the brettanomyces. Some of the fruity sweetness from the aromas comes out a bit as it warms but it’s still hidden pretty far under the brett which is a bummer because this beer smelled like it would be much more delicious than it is. It’s not a bad brew but it’s not one I would really recommend either.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle that poured a golden yellow with some aromas of spicy yeast, pepper, tropical fruit, and a touch of funk. Flavor is the same, interesting style overall. The flavors of some funk, pepper, citrus, and hops made it a nice treat that I didn’t expect to like.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very fresh bottle, the hops waft as we open. Good appearance: a generous head, lots of lace. A little funkiness in the taste and the aroma. Good drinkability, with noticeably dry finish. A sipper. I like the Brett, citrus hops.
