Pours straw with a huge head. Aroma is mostly brett with a little bit of floral hops and tropical fruit. Taste is similar but the oak comes out a bit and I think I'm getting a little of the peppercorn spiciness. Beer is very lively yet delicate.

Shared with firth Golden hazy pour with large white head. Strong citrus taste with some white wine after taste. Not much of an ipa or hop taste at all. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 750ml bottle. thanks to max for sending this over even though we get anchorage distribution here in illinois. j/k...cork opens with a pop and yields a hazy lemon white grapefruit hue, somewhat transparent, and topped with a fluffy lingering frothy white head... aroma of assertive dusty brett, subtle peppery spice, lemon and grapefruit qualities throught with some added bready yeast notes to go along with the aforementioned.... flavors are moderately bitter but is for the most part a predominantly brett focused with emphasis on dusty earthy funk, grapefruit, and that semi-dirty basement aspects provided by brett. lingering aspects of grass and bitterness play in the. fluffy just shy of medium bodied with active carbonation. that pithy grapefruit rind bitterness extends well on through the finish. enjoyed but most of these beers all resemble each other in one way or another which keeps things somewhat predictable. after warming, a soft white pepper spice develops and a touch of malt adds a hint of sweetness before the dryness kicks in.
Fresher sample consumed while in Alaska...more of pronounced galaxy presence in the nose...flavor is sweeter with Brett, bready, but still a mild galaxy influence. Upped w

A good brew but I have a hard time time calling this an IPA. Smells like a Belgian. Citrus and carbonated tangyness. Mild bitterness throughout. Some sour notes and a dry finish. TaktikMTL (7821) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012

This is a re-write as apparently my first review was not committed to the database :( Picked up a bottle for $12.99 based upon my experience with Bitter Monk. First off this si much more of a wild ale than an IPA but that’s ok. Bright white-yellow color. Smells a lot like the chardonnay barrel with hints of brett and stink. Flavor is mostly brett, fruit, citrus but not necessarily hops. good stuff and got me to pick up a bottle of whiteout wit.

A hazy pale yellow pour, with a large fluffy white head. The aroma is strong sour funk, citrus, oak, spicy yeast. High carbonation, light creamy wheaty palate. Tastes of young brett - leather, earthy, citrus. The finish is vinous and bone dry, hints of oak coming through, white pepper and coriander, with bright floral hops in the background. Very complex finish, lasts forever. Will get better with 1-2 years in the cellar. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2012
