ClarkVV (6839) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 26, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 Bottle back in like Summer 2013 and again on draught at Row 34, 12/10/16.
Hazy, pale-blonde with light bronze tints and a wispy, white head atop showing moderate retention.
Very hop-forward nose, with tons of lemon, limeskin and pineapple, the Brett acids mixing in, as well. Not too twangy or Brett-dominated nor is it resinous, but it’s rather starkly acidic with very little in the way of backing maltiness. No alcohol and clean with a little sweat and funk.
Not as thin and overattenuated as the other Crooked Stave beers I’ve had, but I still don’t find it to be nearly malty enough in texture. Light, engaging carbonation and tons of citrus and tropical fruits with a touch of barrel tannin and light biscuit. Very dry, almost sharp on the end, with perfume-like notes emerging.

Bottle picked up while at GABF. Pours dark tan to light brown with big frothy foam that leaves heavy lace. Aroma is earthy, dank and musty with mild hay. Flavors are similar with great sweet pale malt. Finish is the best part with mild Brett and oak without the bitterness. Very nice Brett IPA.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Pyszne piwo, genialne połączenie świeżości IPA i rustykalnych brettów.

As with all things crooked stave, this a fantastic beer, wonderfully balanced.

Not my favorite, neat concept but the hoppyness and wild yeasty sourness comes off as this weird flavor combo of lavender and grapefruit, so not great.

rokof (14) - DENMARK - JAN 4, 2017
Bottle from mikkeller BS aarhus. golden yellow with a hefty head, probably tho due to poor/glass combination. Notes of straw and bread, and very faint notes of brett. Falavour was crips and dry again with brett being only faintly recognizable. Neither the hops, nor the brett makes a big impression in this beer, maybe that is what they were trying to do and make it more subtle/balanced. I was expecting way more to be honest. I’ve had remarkable brett IPAs in the past and was really looking forward to taste this but left me a bit dissapointed

Draft at Bailey’s in Portland. Pale hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is Brett funk, citrus hops, and cat urine - the awesome kind! The flavor is dry, slightly bitter, somewhat tart, lemony funk. Feel is great, slightly astringent but dry and crisp, well carbed. Good!
