MartinT (9961) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Peppery brettanomyces wilderness meets citrusy hops and their juiciness in this cuddly, refined Wild IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam laces nicely around the hazy golden.
-The finish is the meeting of delicate hop resins and tropical fruit juice.
-Drinkability is quite high because of the dryness, fruitiness and moderate flavour intensity.
-Floral notes add depth to the flavour profile.

Restrained aroma in a yellow gold pour. Lovely hop-malt balance provides an excellent stage for the undisputed star of this brew - the brett.

swesson (462) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2017
From a can. Pours a hazy honey-gold and makes a thick head with lacing rings all the way down the glass. Aroma of juicy fresh hops and pale malts. Tastes of malted barley, juicy citrusy hops and a truly unique yeast profile. Yum! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
