superspak (5003) - Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2016
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 10/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, lime, pineapple, peach, mango, peppercorn, pine, citrus rind, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, floral, grass, light leather/musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, lime, pineapple, peach, mango, peppercorn, pine, citrus rind, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, floral, grass, light leather/musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, lime, pineapple, peach, mango, peppercorn, pine, citrus rind, hay, straw, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from carbonation, bitterness, and yeast spiciness as well. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding Belgian IPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

ryecatcher (1376) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2016
750mL bottle. Hazy pale yellow-gold pour, big foamy white face with exceptional retention and lace. Nose is funk forward, Brett, lilies, lemongrass, hay, minerals. Mouth is medium-full, bright citrus notes riding a funky wave of Brett, light sweetness, medium bitterness, bread dough, slightly tart. Way more like a hoppy Saison than an IPA but whatever. Its very tasty.

Corked and caged bottle, Anchorage pre-flight hotel tasting. Pours hazy yellow with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is lemon, grapes, farmhouse Brettanomyces, cereal and Pils malt with spicy hops and citrus pith notes. Flavor is crisp cereal and Pils malt, lemon and grapes, pithy citrus, farmhouse Brettanomyces, and a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Travlr (22476) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle from the source (in Alaska, that is). Hazy to cloudy pale yellow color, white head with lacey lacing. Aroma of dusty mango, pineapple. Taste is peppery, dusty tropical fruit. Delicious.

rumproasts (5274) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2015
bottle. hazy golden with one finger head. light body with medium brett funk. quite fruity, though not quite tart. moderate bitterness, but the flavors blend pretty well in this case. strikes me as less of a IPA and more of an hoppy funk-forward saison. good stuff.

mrjez (539) - Osaka, JAPAN - SEP 23, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2015 Bottle from Asahiya, shared at Craft Beer Picnic. The cork shot out and it exploded everywhere, despite not being agitated. L: was a thick dark orange, tonnes of head, as it settled it looked like apricot juice. S: lots of sweet fruit, hoppy aromas. T: a mix of fruits with a sour finish, plenty of Brett, nice underlying hop bitterness. Good balance. F: very refreshing and tart mouthfeel, not too puckery. Lingering citric taste. O: very enjoyable and Id like to see more beers blend these sour and bitter aspects.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4809) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 23, 2015
Mikkeller Invasion Farmhouse IPA, bottle shared by Jeremy. A cloudy vibrant orange gold. The nose is super fruity hops, somewhat artificial seeming. Lovely hyperactive soft bodied beer. The taste is zesty lemon fruity hops. The taste is farmhouse lemon and bready light malts.

Batavi (369) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2015 Fles 750 ml gekocht bij biernavigatie, uitgeschonken in origineel Mikkeller Invasion Farmhouse glas, dank daarvoor nog firmabier.nl. Goudgeel troebel bier met een hoge witte schuimkraag en een structuur van kant, vrij dun, zakt redelijk snel weer weg. Bijzondere aromas, veel citrusfruit als sinaasappel en grapefruit, tropisch fruit als ananas en mango, florale parfums van lavendel, verder karamel en de typische brettanomyces tonen van vochtig leer en paardendeken. Het smaakpallet is bitterzoet en zurig waarbij deze elkaar perfect in balans houden. Fruitige smaken van grapefruit en ananas, de brettanomyces gist, met tonen van leer, pijnboom en aardachtige tonen. Het smaakpallet is prachtig gebalanceerd met een levendige carbonatie en een licht bittere droge finish. Voor mij de beste IPA tot nu toe, erg lekker. Deed me ook enigszins denken aan de Belgische bieren Orval en Houppe, een aanrader deze IPA van Mikkeller en Anchorage Brewing Company, ook het design van de fles is heel bijzonder.

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2015
4/3/15. 750mL bottle shared by Tim, I believe. Golden orange pour with a nice khaki head, mild lacing. Good aroma, nice Brett funk, mild tartness, tropical fruits, some citrus. Okay flavor, bitter, a bit minerally, mild funk and fruitiness. Not bad.
