Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

For this somewhat funky farmhouse rendition of our flagship IPA, we took the base recipe and fermented it with a blend of French saison yeast and two strains of brettanomyces, followed by a healthy dry hopping with Galaxy hops. Drink now for maximum fresh hoppy flavor or cellar to develop the brett character. Santé!

Bottle to Bruery Tulip
22oz

Thanks to Blackbelt5112203 for this one

App- Deep deep orange with a solid center. Has a mix of yellows and golds mixed in. A small 1/2 finger head with decent cling and lace.

Smell- A big dose of earthy, grassy notes on this one. On another smell comes the yeast and a bit of citrus.

Taste- A nice mix of styles. The yeast balances this out but not like Stones Cali. This was more thick and earthy vs a big citrus punch. A nice beer but nothing that was earthy shattering.

Mouth- A good light medium with a medium carbonation level. The yeast comes out nicely and creates a earthy, mini spicy pocket of flavor.

Drink- Tasty, but was hoping for something closer to Stone Cali-Belg. Nice layers but just didnt pop like I was hoping.

22oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint. Many thanks to my friend Bob for sending this my way!

(A)- Pours a cloudy orange color. Produced a large and fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing.

(S)- A nice dry profile. Bits of lemongrass, clay, mild earth, and a pleasant orange peel citrus at the end.

(T)- A bit heavier in the yeast department, but has the same dry/grassy lemon and earthy clay profile. Plenty of pine at the end reminding you of the IPA namesake.

(M)- A nice carbonation level. Has a good balance too, though is quite heavy in the yeast and bitter pine areas, but otherwise quite nice.

(D)- Overall, the saison/IPA combo is a success in this one. Has the earthy dryness of the saison and the bitter pine and citrus of an IPA.

Thanks Dan!

Appearance: Amber pour, a bit cloudy, decent head and lacing
Smell: weird ipa/saison combo, slightly sweet
Taste: Slightly earthy, with some tangerine and citrus. Seems like a common saison strain I can't quite pinpoint
Overall: Interesting beer, would drink it locally but not seek it out
