Notes/Commercial Description:
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!

Thanks to dogdoc for this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into CCB pint glass.

A: Hazy, light apricot color with a medium amount of visible carbonation and a one and a half finger white foamy head.

S: Caramel malts, Belgian fruity yeasts, and hoppiness (pine, citrus pith).

T: Belgian yeast (fruity esters and a bit of banana) and some barnyard, then comes the caramel malt, then some pine hoppy bitterness that lingers just a bit.

M: Medium body, a good amount of carbonation sensation, and a bitter sticky mouthfeel. Minimal alcohol presence, and I get a tingly bitter sensation in the front of my mouth.

O: Well, this was interesting, and was pretty good. It defied categorization. Unlike many intermediate styles of beers that I've had, this pulled off what it set out to, a hoppy farmhouse ale. And it did so very well, each flavor distinct from the others. The thing is, I'm just not sure that the hoppy bitterness mixing with the Belgian fruity sweetness works well for me.
