Notes/Commercial Description:
E is definitely not a Belgian IPA - it's a funky version of Edward (american pale ale) - fermented with brettanomyces, dry hopped with galaxy, and aged on stainless for four months. Basically, we refer to it as a farmhouse pale ale - a cross between a saison and an american pale.

2012 Release: Aged in Mimosa barrels.
2014 Release: Aged in wine barrels with resident yeast and microfloa for 1.5 years.

750 mL bottle poured into a tumbler.

Appearance - Not sure if I should rate its appearance well. It's a hazy orange with a huge off white head. It slowly oozes out of the bottle pushing gunky crap with it. Sticky lacing.

Smell - Extremely bretty, but lots of flavor behind it. Still some hops there. Lots of citrus.

Taste - Earthy and very bretty. Mimics the nose almost identically. Citrus more prominent. Lots of earthiness in the finish. Slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated but not overly so.

Overall - Arguably better than Mimosa. Has more complexity than Mimosa because of the fresh hop character.
