COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What you hold in your hands is an experiment. This IPA is spiked at bottling with Brettanomyces, a wild yeast that, over time, brings about charmingly unpredictable complexities of spice, funk, acidity, and more. The operative words in our beer-cellaring thesis are "over time." For those of you who are impatient or like to experiment, the earliest we recommend sampling this beer is 10.31.14. The beer won’t be fully carbonated until that date. Ideally, you’ll want to cellar the beer up to--or beyond--the Enjoy After date to help it reach its full evolutionary potential. At that point, some facets of the Brett characteristics will have mellowed, while others will have become more profound; it all matures into a fascinating and delicious culmination. Individual results will vary...and that’s both the beauty and the intent behind this beer.

Metalchopz (3709) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2018
Enjoy after 07.04.16 version. Pours a clean golden colour with heavy carbonation. The head is huge, very long lasting with some foamy lacing. The Brett is in the aromas with the earthiness and mild sourness, all well-blended with some Belgian Ale yeast sweetness. The taste is where the IPA appears with some sharp bitterness. The Brett shows earth in the background, but the grassiness is the strongest. Gets hazier and hazier as it pours. Another very nice brew from Stone.

MarcoDL (5532) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2018
Bottle at tasting. Aroma of funky barnyard, brett, citrus, mild acid and vanilla oak. Taste of dry brett, citrus, hay, funky barnyard, wheat, oaky vanilla and a dry finish. Heavy flavor, interesting and quite nice.

hopsolicious (6) - - JAN 26, 2018 does not count
Enjoy after 4/2016. Very nice aroma. Very well carbonated and a big fluffy head. Nice lacing and overall very appealing appearance. Lots of citrus and lemon notes balanced with an aggressive but not intrusive hop profile. A very well crafted beer. Highly Recommended and for me a definite buy again if I see it. Well done, Stone Brewing.

beskid (478) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2018
Bottle from Stone Berlin. Aroma is light funk, soap, lemon. Very high carbonation. Taste is rather dry, tart, quite funky, strong herbal notes and bitter aftertaste.

3.9
AgentAle (1880) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2017
Poured the 07.04.16 on 12.17.17. Poured this one aggressively as the aroma pouring out of the bottle was sublime. . It's cool they experimented with the Brett yeast as it really took hold of the grains and hops during fermentation and really give it a nice earthy and funky body. So this odd IPA is definitely a tasty one. Worth the wait!

GTAEgeek (2578) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2017
10.31.16 bottle shared by Dan. Bit of a gusher. Hazy, orangish-yellow color, with a big, foamy head. Lemon, dirt, leather, pine, and rye. Sweet and citrusy, with a light funk and only a little bitter. Light to medium body, with a dry, grainy, dusty mouthfeel. This is a fun, flavorful, and funky beer.
