Bomber from Charleston Beer Exchange. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of brett, earthy and herbal hops, something slightly tannic. The taste is earth, citrus, brett, grapes, bitter hop finish. Medium bodied, very drinkable. Nice beer.

Ernesto987 (3776) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 9, 2012
on tap at brewery. More of a saison with some hop bitterness at the end. Just a clean saison with some hops. Not bad.

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Bottle, thanks JCB for sharing! Super cloudy orange with a steady ring of white lace. Nose is zesty and fresh, supremely funky. Flavor is a bit sharper, chalky bitterness, mild pineapple, and white pepper. One of the better Westbrook beers Iíve had.

JoePeesie (865) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours a murky orange with a fizzy white hard that laces nicely. Nose and taste is a little citrus a little spice and a little funk. Not sure why the label says IPA this is not very hoppy. A solid beer that becomes more tart as it warms. Interesting beer.

hiddenvariable (206) - pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2012
bottle bought from charleston beer exchange. thanks to those guys for helping me out while i was in town! perfectly clear amber with plenty of effervescence and a sizable off-white head that lingers a good long while. smell is very interesting. itís dominated by a strong piney hop note, but thereís a nutty malt with oak notes and tiny pinches of funk, always pushing against those hops. thereís a lot going on there. good stuff. solid nutty malt flavor with a resiny, piney hop flavor taking over midway through the proceedings. nicely complex blend of hop, malt, with again just the tiniest hint that something else is going on. mild sweetness, perfectly balanced by a warm bitterness, rounding out the back end. resinous mouthfeel that only wants to be dry. iím not noticing the farmhouse aspect as much as i think i would like, but this is pretty amazing as a mere ipa.

craftbeerdesign (2182) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 29, 2012
growler from Whole Foods in Mt. Pleasant. deep orange pour with a 1+ finger white head. citrus nose with big Saison yeast esters / phenols. med body - smooth - with a bright bitterness with a lovely Saison yeast profile. spices, orange peel, banana circulate w/o Brett... needs more time. semi-dry finish with an orange, earthy, citrus, spice ending.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Growler from CBX poured into my awesome new Duck Rabbit snifter. Real hazy golden pour with a small white head. Faded quickly and left some nice lace. Aroma was full of fruity American hops, funky yeast, earthiness, a really nice yeasty presence. Flavors were dry, earthy, some fruitiness in there with an incredibly dry yeasty bitter finish. Mouthfeel was medium, carbonation light to mid. Quite tasty, very Belgian pale ale like. Itís hard to distinguish the yeast characteristics and the hops, a yeast like this seems to muddle hops quite well. Would be interesting to see how a bottle ages with the brett present.
