harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from BottleDog London and drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. Yellow grapefruit aroma. Perfumed fruity ipa. Bit of peach in the mouth. Hoppy finish, moderate to strong bitterness. Got better as I drank it. Peachy grapefruit bitter ipa. Decent enough.

fairwater (133) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from The Grumpy Goat. Cloudy amber, small but lingering head. Grapefruits and orange zest. Crisp carbonation. Not getting much funkiness from the brett, but it’s not a typical IPA - there’s something there. Maybe it wants more aging, but it’s a very interesting and really drinkable IPA.

DanielBrown (3776) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle at Birmingham Beer Bash. Excellent, engaging IPA. Lots of leafy, sugar edged hop, with a chalky mouthwash of murky sour from the brett. Great stuff from this pretty amazing brewery.

KarlPopper (9) - Krakow, POLAND - AUG 3, 2014 does not count
Was expecting a very sour IPA but from the bottle it turned out to be. Ery refreshin, hoppy, citrusy IPA with a very slight acidity. Great aroma of hops: citrus, mandarines, very drinkae, nice and durae head. Bretts are hidden but it is only an advantage of this beer in my opinion. Nice bitterness though it could be stronger, anyway very refreshing and very drinkable

jbeatty (1020) - New York, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle, 07/24/2014. Pours clear golden amber, large frothy head with great retention. Aroma is pineapple and orange zest, opening to earthy pine and grass, spicy yeast. Taste is pine with citrus overtones, slight acidity and tartness though not overly noticeable, peach and melon sweetness with lingering bitterness. Medium body, silky carbonation. Was expecting a tad more brett but this turned out quite nice nonetheless.

glennmastrange (2240) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle. Moderate hay for the malt, moderate to heavy grass and pine for the hops, moderate earth and musty for the yeast, with notes of wood and coriander. Head is huge, fizzy/frothy, slightly off-white with good crusty lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky, medium amber. Flavor starts moderately to heavily acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, creamy which is hidden a bit by the fizzy carbonation. Nice mix of smells and tastes, and a nice way to drop Brett into an IPA. Two of my favorites.

brianza_ale (88) - ITALY - JUL 22, 2014
33 cl teku. Pours a generous white foamy head with nice lenght, orange/yellowish cloudy colour. Very nice pineapple, peach, grape sweet tropical, floral and yeasty slight funk aroma; you can defintely spot the wheat too. Tastes fresh fruits, grape citrus, wild yeast, with biscuity/pine smooth hops. A bit of sweetness, with perfectly mild bitter and noticeable tartness final component. Creamy texture, lively carbonation. As written on the back label, and because mine wasn’t for sure in the 3 first month freshness (prob 6), I could definitely pick the brett, sour, spicy evolving character. In my opinion seems a mix between an IPA and a saison (going from 1st to the 2nd). A really a nice, balanced crisp refreshing beer

PhillyCraft (3166) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Not sure who brought this but thanks. Poured hazy orange red with some soapy lace. Smell and taste are piney and grapefruit hops, rustic pineapple brett, and other earthy tones. Good beer with a bitter, medium body finish.

Daniel719 (125) - Safety Harbor, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2014
bottle. Pours a very nice cloudy orange. Aroma is great. Immediate hops. Like a DIPA. Taste is hoppiness in the front. Get some brett in the back end. Very balanced overall. I really like it. Different than other pale ales. Drinks more like a IPA with a nice touch of brett in the back.
