Mikkeller ApS - Invasion Farmhouse IPA

Look - Pours hazy golden yellow with a good sized fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Some retention, no lacing that stays.

Smell - Pineapple with spice, sweet and a bit cloying and funky, some floral hops are hard to pull out of the sweet. Was not sure what to think at this point but I try to keep an open mind.

Taste - Sour and farmhouse typical, brett then rages in a strange sweet tingly numbing like cough syrup and then floral/grassy bitter/pine pitch or sap hops.

Mouthfeel - Rests pine pitch hop bitter and fades quite quickly, I liked this part. Lightly warming but not overly boozy. Dry and decent drinkability.

Overall - Not one of my personal favorites, but unique to say the least. Super brett punch, a bit extreme, would not recommend unless you want tart and sour, some would absolutely love this brew, I am not one of them.

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.
