In contrast to the previous draft this IPA knocked it out of the park. A Belgian style release with a little West Coast flair, it defies neat categorization. Instead it delivers a product that made me wish I could pack a few bottles in my luggage to travel home. Put it near the top of your list if you have to be selective.

Aroma / Appearance - Light carbonation tickles the surface under a soft fringe of snow white head. The gentle presence traps the scents of yeast, wheat, an earthy hops - this reminds me a bright golden ale more than a traditional hop driven IPA. The yeast (in the form of brett) elevates it to a new level.

Flavor / Palate - Brett and citrus immediately hit the senses with a polished balance. The finish remains memorable yet light. Easy on the palate from start to finish this could easily be either the start of a flight or your go to beer all night long.

On tap. Pours a hazy gold-orange with a small, creamy, long lasting, white head that laces. Sweet fruity aroma of grapefruit, peach, mango, pineapple, orange and a hint of pine. Sweet fruity flavour of grapefruit, orange, peach, tropical fruit, pine and biscuit malt in the background with a bitter grass finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not picking up any brett, but still a very nice ipa.

10oz on tap. Hazy golden pour with soapy white head, some retention. Nose of stone fruit (I was noticing peach mostly), a bit of Bretty funk. Slightly sour, slightly sweet, with a bit of a bitter finish. Clean and refreshing. Absolutely gorgeous.

Une bière ambrée, avec une très bonne carbonatation, ainsi qu’une petite effervescence. Au nez on détecte assez facilement la brett, qui est assez cuirée, tout en laissant derrière quelques notes d’agrumes plutôt cachées par la brett. En bouche, je suis un peu déçu du breuvage alors qu’il y a peu de subtilités, la brett apportant avec elle beaucoup du goût houblonné. On note également des notes d’alcool, et de caramel, annonçant une bière bien maltée. Pas pour moi.

Hazy gold pour with nice sized white head. Nose of tropical and stone fruit. Flavor to match with a little hint of honey. Nice clean finish that has just a touch of bitterness.

Bomber. Cloudy copper and fluffy white head. Fruity citrus nose. Smooth and creamy body. Flavor is delicious. Orange peel, bubble gum, tropical fruits. Fantastic.

Blonde ambré. Très tropicale. Mangue. Ananas. Un peu de coconut. Amertume modéré. Un peu de résine. Agrume. Pamplemousse. Brett subtile mais juste assez. Bien juteuse cette ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating #2359 - 2016.03.02 - Bottle from @beerblast. Hazy golden pour, medium white head. Aroma is Juicy Fruit, brett floral whiff, orange, and lime. Quite complex, the sourness is tempered with a bold hoppy bite, mild sweetness. Low alcohol warmth, bubbly mouthfeel. Really light and delicate flavours. Great Sour IPA.

22 oz bottle, courtesy of mcberko. Thanks! Finally get to try this beer. Clean and clear golden pour with a soap bubble head. Aroma is a slightly sweet peach like fruit, and a slight funk. Flavor is a little more peach tea, cool constant, hop bitterness balanced by a funk. Orange, some tropical. Very fruity as an end result. Creamy, but seems too sweet. Not bad, but I feel I personally hyped this beer up a little too much. Sugary, or so it seems. Good, fun, unique IPA.
