Tmoney99 (14976) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow color with a medium to large frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast sour citrus and herbs aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy Sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded by this standout beer.

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle split with James, Pat, and Bobby. Pours a very light golden color with a ton of white head. Aroma is a great dusty brett smell. Taste is really light, maybe a little bit of citrus hops mixing with the brett. Really hard to rate this kind of beer against other "ipas", almost isn’t fair. Still this and Anchorage’s other offerings are some of the most unique beers i come across and i like them.

Petrucci914 (921) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2012
I don’t think I would drink a lot of this but I do have to say this was the most amazing beer I had in a long time.......just very over the top in a lot of ways. Pours a cloudy lemon color with a huge white pillowy head. Aroma is citrus hops, white ale spices, coriander, peppercorns, lemon. Extremely carbonated and dry. You taste coriander, lemon hops, peppercorns. Just a taste explosion.

durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours hazy light straw gold with a massive white head. Great lacing. Nose of tart lemon, wood, coriander, mild band-aids, and pineapple. Tastes lemony and tart. Some tannins. Finishes dry.

750 bottle. hazy white with a huge, foamy, fizzy, bleach white head. dusty, white grapefruit aroma. highly effervescent palate. flavor is dusty with brett, lemons, coriander. big on spices and bitterness, low sweetness. annoying fizzy carbonation. light body.

mikesaum (712) - Newark, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Big pop from the bottle, pours like a wit, very cloudy and golden, HUGE white head that takes quite some time to settle. Aroma is odd to say the least, smells like a just cleaned mens bathroom, lemon cleaner, urinal cakes, aroma isn’t too pleasant. Taste is a whole different story, this is delicious, lemon zest, ypu can really taste the tart orange flavor from the kumquat as well, some nice brett funky must, some pepper, dry wine finish, nice little hop bite to it, this brew is extremely complex in flavor, my second brew from this brewer, and I’ve loved them both, would love to try more from these guys.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a large champaign type head. Stays around forever. Smells like bathroom soap. Really weird aroma almost bad. Taste is pretty good but the smell has got to go. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml caged and corked bottle, Batch #2, April 2012. Served in a DFH Signature glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with a huge off-white head that grew for a while and took some time to settle. Also, there’s a lot of lacing. The brew smells like lemon peel, brett, hay, peppery spice and some coriander. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s also the addition of some white wine and pineapple flavors. I liked the taste of this beer more and more the longer I drank it. Mouthfeel/body is medium, and it’s very carbonated. I think this is a pretty good overall brew, although I do wish the carbonation was lower. $13.99 a bottle.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2012
clear sparkling pale gold with a tall large-bubbled white head. perfumed white grape and brett band-aid / plastic in the first whiff, developing more spice and fruit notes as it opens. lively carbonation, light body, mild to medium tartness, mild oak presence. wonderfully explosive but still soft carbonation across the middle, it’s surprisingly full and rotund for having such a light and delicate malt base. dry white wine and floral esters and brett must abound. a bit herbal at times, then more floral, then more wheat-focused, then a combination of white grapes and brett that comes across a little like botrytis. shape-shifting, restrained, balanced and delicious.
