Sounded very promising, but for me a bit out of balance. The alcohol, allthough only 7% is a bit too strong, and the bitterness could be a bit more balanced with a nice malty touch, maybe some more wheat.. The hops are clearly on the backgroudn as bittering, and the aroma’s of the hops are a bit pushed away by the brett. Very nice brew, but my expectations for TO Ol are always very high! :)
Belle robe ambrée un peu sombre. Une amertume sèche mais légère. Au nez très rance presque un peu sombre. Bien équilibrée avec une attaque douce qui se corse en amertume par la suite.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Orangish-brown with a bubbly off white head. Aroma is cooked peaches and tea. The flavours are the same with aspirin bitterness that finishes harshly. I pretty sure this is not fresh.... Nikokaoja (244) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - APR 10, 2017

Visual: Pours cloudy orange-brown with minimal lasting head, fine foamy 1mm layer of retention, clusters of steady active streams.piwnanuta (148) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 19, 2017
Nose: faint subtle sour funk’d barley malt (lvl-3)-pungency
Attack: crisp, thick fullness, creamy
Mid-palate: sharp numbing resiny-pine, (lvl-5)-sweetness, soft toffee barley malt,
Finish: subtle banana wheat malt exhale, grainy barley malt, lingering metallic hopped bitterness
Summary: The combo of oats for creaminess, wheat for fruitiness, and barley as the backbone works well in this brew. This IPA is the dry, piney variety - good stuff, but I wished for more fruity citrus to round it out.
Na pierwszym planie mamy zioła i słód. W tle brzoskwinie, cytrusy. Przypomina delikatnie winny aromat który możemy znaleźć w barley wineach. Po jakimś czasie wychodzi tu coś drożdżowego. Przypomina mi aromat dojrzewającego ciasta drożdżowego, jakie robiła moja babcia. Na drożdżówkę lub pizze. W smaku jest słodko, jak w piwach belgijskich. Dominuje zboże i zioła. Jest tu też taka dzikość drożdżowa. Coś w stylu starej skóry. W tle brzoskwinie i przyprawy na końcu języka. Goryczka średnia i przyjemnie zalega. Po jakimś czasie robi się delikatnie kwaskowate i winne.

Appearance: hazy pale amber with two fingers of fluffy growing ivory head, excellent retention and heavy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: Brett funk, stone fruit, grapefruit, some tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium slightly oily body, lively carbonation, lingering bitter and mildly warming finish. (3/5)
Yup, “farmhouse IPA” is definitely a valid style label to hang on this thing (BJCP be damned!): lots of farmhouse (well, that, or barnyard) Brett(-like? I dunno, I’m not a mycologist.) funk character battling for supremacy with grapefruit and tropical fruit IPA notes. Not all that tart, though, despite the commercial description. Might be interesting newer - perhaps there’d be more of the pithy grapefruit if you caught it within 90 days or so - but given the dominance of Brett(-like? Whatever.) wild yeast here, I kind of doubt it. If anything, this strikes me as the kind of IPA you could stick in a cellar for a couple of years just to let the funk really dig down and get established. If I happen to notice another one of these around, I might do just that. (15/20) douglas88 (9057) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity nose. The flavor is sweet banana, spices, lemongrass. Interesting. neepsntatties (1973) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle. Colour...dark gold, almost amber, with a thick white head. Nose...yeasty, musty, musky and fruity.
Palate...tart, dry, yeast laden with hoppy crust and dark fruity bits. The mid palate is sharp and sandy tight with an ultra dry brut finish. fellebag (1466) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2016
