look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Burley Oak snifter (Batch #2 NOV/12)

A: Opaque blonde hay color.

S: Lots of farmhouse, funk and pine. The brett complicates the notes a lot. Light grapefruit.

T: I might have preferred the fresh brett-less version. It is a bit watery towards the end. This was probably much better a year ago. Lots of farmhouse and yeasty funkness. Faintly tart with an old hop pine taste. Not too much to my liking. I wish it was either a lot hoppier or more bitter/tart.

M: Bubbly but overall pretty smooth.

O: I wish there was a bigger body with bolder flavors here. It was all kind of muted. However, I thought with the Brett, that the hops might last longer (silly), but it's not like I had been aging it. I only got it like a month ago.

3.58/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: This nontypical IPA pours a pale orange color that is so cloudy that I can’t see through it and is topped with ½” of white head that hangs around.
Smell: Hops dominate the aroma at first but the funk comes around near the end of the aroma. What an intriguing beer
Taste: The taste is rather odd with the combo of hops and Brett yeast and that is the exact way it tastes just kind of hard to get use to.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied IPA that has a clean finish even with the Brett.

Large frothy 3 finger off white head with excellent retention and lacing on a murky golden copper body. Aroma is very fruity with mostly banana and pineapple. Also has light Belgian yeast and clove for herbal presence. Flavor is very different from the aroma. Caught off guard initially by acidic tartness, Belgian yeast funk, some green apple, melon and breads. Finish is metallic, grassy and herbal. Medium body and high carbonation. Pretty unique and complex. Not sure if I would want this one again but it's worth trying. A little too herbal and tangy for what I want to make this one more drinkable for me.

There is a new breed of Saison style IPAs out there that are similar to this one , and to many it is a taste sensation utilizing brett. I sensed that this $12 bomber was one that should be shared rather than consumed alone, and my instincts were correct.

The nose is very different, hoppy but with an indescribable funk about it. Nothing special about the pour or the lacing, but when you taste this tangy brew, you are either going to enjoy it or find the tartness overbearing. Reminds me of the bitterness that many seek in a Belgian style ale, but I personally didn't find it all that appealing. At one point it tasted like I was drinking carbonated olive oil, and I found it challenging making it through a full glass.

Worth a try? If you wish to explore IPAs made with brett, this may be a good choice for you, but once was the charm for me. I wouldn't seek this overpriced bomber out again: the raging tartness and acidity level are not qualities I appreciate in a beer but my hop head friend liked it a lot.
