Clear deep copper with a thin white foamy cap. Lovely and full complex nose with floral hops and big floral resins, like actual flowers and some potpourri and rosemary--or something herbal. Big flavorful but also dang bitter flavor featuring pine, grapefruit, grape, loads of sticky caramel, dry bretty farmhouse funk, herbal esters, maybe rosemary, more citrus and pine, some bitterness, and more funk. Loads of complexity, but also loads of bitterness. Lots of bretty funk. neongolden (1611) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
(330ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, April 14 2015) Pours hazy orange with a moderate frothy white head, lace. Aroma has some caramel/orange/mango sweetness, tart fruity notes, soft resin, florals. On the palate, fairly dry, lightly lactic lemon tartness, orange, tropical fruit, bready malts with touch of caramel, a little pine resin. Finish is sweet/tart fading to dry, pretty balanced, soft bitterness. Funk is very moderate but there’s a little there. Medium body, a little oily, average carb. Alcohol slightly detectable. Pretty nice dry/tart DIPA but the Brett is on the tart rather than funky side. Tasty. Jow (3899) - New York, USA - APR 16, 2015

Bottle at home. Hazy orange with a white head. Taste is malty, bitter, sweet, caramel, a bit hops, a little foral.. Maby to old. bbertels (474) - NORWAY - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of pungent hops and malts and the taste is, resin, floral, alcohol and nuts - the latter a bit surprising. An accomplished and fantastic double ipa where the streak of wild yeast breaks through!

Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Very big floating citrus aroma, caramel, small barnyard notes, and some alc. fumes. Medium orange/amber color, with a sudsy head. Thick caramel initial, which is immediately undercut by hopping and a wild sourish notes. Alc. intrudes a bit. Some yeastiness and then it finishes a little dry. Warming stuff. Medium-heavy body. Interesting stuff. The wild yeast works here. Alc. level is perhaps a bit too high. drowland (8629) - Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2015
1/22/15. On tap at The Craft Bar. Hazy orange pour under a small tan head that fades, mild lacing. Huge burnt caramel/brown sugar aroma, fruitiness, a little dusty and husky. Rich burnt caramel/toffee flavor, fruity, surprisingly sweet. Disappointed. Cunningham (7861) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2015
