COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editors Note: This entry is for capped 750mL bottles brewed at Jolly Pumpkin. If you had a corked and caged silk screen bottle from Anchorage, please rate under the Anchorage listing.

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you. -Nietzche

When introspection fails, its time to look outward for inspiration, perhaps Northward! One of the people who inspired me this past year is my friend Gabe Fletcher, of Anchorage Brewing Co. We brewed this beer together. I hope it inspires you. Northward!

Warm regards,
RON

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Had on tap at the brewery. Pours a refreshing looking dull orange with an agressive foamy head. Had quite a tart funk smell. A very unique taste. Very peppery. Leaves a hop tingle on the tongue. Paired well with my truffle fries and mussels. Good stuff as usual from this local brewery.

Bottle. Pours light hazy yellow with a small, staying creamy white head. Aroma has Brett, citrus, grapefruit. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, doughy, very dry, fine bitterness. Mild tartness. Very lovely balanced.

TEJA (2622) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2016
Bottle shared by omhper, thanks. Big and lasting bright white head. Clowdy yellow color. Fresh pear aroma blended with some citrus aroma. Big almost tart bitterness for a sour ale.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers. Hazy gold with a finger of foam that lingers. Nice bretty, musty hay aromas with pineapple, orange and a touch of pear. Good carbonation on the palate, more fruit and mustiness. Light peppercorn finish. Really well done.

SG111 (1480) - New York, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Sample at B spot, Auburn Hills. Pours light lemon hazy color white head. Aroma is sour funk, lemon, hay, some Belgian esters, sort of a white wine oak quality. Flavor is sour funk, not too acidic, Belgian golden ale notes. Sort of a blonde ale with sour notes feel. Aroma is great, but flavor is a bit more bland than Id like. Still quite good.

On tap at Hazel. Bold gold body with medium head. Nose is citrus, faint, floral. Delicate. Taste starts subdued, gentle and then kicks heavy into the lemompeel. Really good stuff.
