JP version, amazing grapefruit and saisoney smell. Taste follows suit, don't notice much peppercorn. Delicious beer.

Tap: Completely opaque, radiant amber body with a huge, fluffy, long lasting off-white head. Spots of wet lacing left behind. Aroma hits up front with a handful of white pepper-y & spicy yeast that transitions into a more Brett-like profile mid-palate with hints of dusty cobweb funk, musty cotton blankets, mild lemon-like acidity, a touch of citrus, & just a little bit of dry wood. The taste also starts off with the aforementioned spiciness; mildly herbaceous in execution with white pepper & moderate earth. A touch of lemon & old, funky, lightly tart pineapple from the Brett lend a balancing hand to the up front sharpness, leading into a finish that’s extremely characteristic of Jolly Pumpkin brews; lots of damp hay, barnyard critter funk; woodsy, funky, musty. Crisp & sharp, dry finish with lingering wood, Brett, & light lemon. Another fine brew from Jolly Pumpkin, albeit not vastly differential amongst the rest of their line-up. jredmond (8999) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Draft at Proletariat with Andrew and Balaz. Pours a clear amber orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is beautiful lemon funk, peach, sweet sugar and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is tart, dry and sweet with lots of sugar coming through across the palate. A bit too sweet overall, but would love to try it again. jeremyh70 (1116) - Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pours a hazy straw color wth an off white head with little lacing. Aroma of citrus, peaches and yeasty funk. Taste is citrus with light fruit and a bit of sourness. Grapefruit rind and bitterness shows up along with the spicy peppercorn than becomes an earthy and woody. Finishes very dry. Light/medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavors are a bit harsh and don’t meld completely. thomas15 (694) - Alabama, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Aroma of musky funk, Brett, some lemon, grapefruit. The funk fruit interplay is great. Cloudy dark gold in color with white head settling at half a finger. Taste of grapefruit, rind, Brett, funk. Juicy yet dry. The palate has a lot going on. Slick, juicy, dry, and acidic.

Bottle thanks to Alemax. Pours hazy golden orange with quickly settling white head, some stringy lace. Aroma is funky, oaky, acidic and big citrus.
Taste is big citrus up front, mild to moderately tart, funky, with a tart citrus finish and oaky, mildly tart, bitter aftertaste. The yeast seems more similar to Anchorage beers than any of the other beers I’ve had by Jolly Pumpkin. Soft carbonation, medium-light body, mildly dry finish.
