Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Sampled at the the Sweet Sixteen Richmond Gathering. Sampled with the other 5 in the series. Clear light golden pour with sticky large nearwhite head. Smells very similar to the regular ipa, but the flavor has a distinct bretty belgian yeast charater. A little spicy and tart. Pretty good actually.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Dense beige head. Aroma of yeast, sweetness, some earth, vague sourness. Flavour of sweetness, fruits, spice, some tartness and grapy sourness. Medium bodied. Dry light sour end.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a tall, chunky beige head that has great retention and leaves really nice lacing. Aroma is starts off with an awesome mix of floral, acidic-fruity, spicy, tropical and citrus hops, light funk, dusty grain, apples, stone fruit and a little wet leaves. Flavor is slightly less impressive(maybe not...), but still pretty nice. cereal grain, dust, mineral notes, light funk, hay and floral, citrus, acidic, fruity, light tropical and spicy hops. Palate is light bodied, off dry, and just a hair chalky and acidic throughout with a light to medium and somewhat sharp carbonation. Really good stuff, at first I was a little disappointed by the lack of intensity in the flavor, especially on the hop side, but it grew on me after a few sips. The lack of intensity was blown over by a nicely refreshing, tasty and not in any way overbearing Pale Ale. I really love the hop blend.

dmac (6429) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2012
22oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a bit thinner bodied honey amber with a foamy mostly white head. Aroma is solid with lots of barnyard funk, tangerine, lemon and orange, hint of herbs and some crusty grains. Medium bodied, average to stronger carbonation, a dry finish with a lingering bitter bite. Flavor is much like the aroma with lots of funk, loads of citrus, citrus rind, lime, dry toast, slight herbs. Really good actually.

Bottle, pours a bright yellow, flavour is very spicy, the flavour is a bit of funk and barnyard, clove, and a bit of brettiness, it mixes for a smooth and very enjoyable offering, nice beer

Pours a deep gold with a moderate white head. Floral hop aroma. Slight malty flavor that blends well with the spice and grapefruit hop flavor. Some carbonation in the mouthfeel. Very pleasant little beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 13, 2012
22oz bottle from Kentucky. Hazy rusty copper with a dense, off white head. Aroma of musty earth, lemon, hay and bread dough. Flavor is bright tart lemon, sweet malt and a medium hop bitterness, no alcohol taste. Medium body with lively carbonation. Nice, bright, refreshing beer with lots of flavors that all come together nicely.

Orange gold pour with a slight haze and a massive long lasting white head. Sweet funky citrus gets your attention as you pour. First taste is citrus funk followed by a little hop bitterness and finishes with sour. Finish is the only part that was not to my liking.

3.8
Ostomo517 (73) - Norton Shores, Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Pours a caramel amber color. Nose is a nice farmhouse funk similar to Monkey King. Palate is a nice mix of funk and big Mad Hatter hops. Kinda hard to describe other than another delicious New Holland beer!
