16.9 oz bottle into Duvel tulip... "Best Before 2013" on the bottle... (oops it's 2.3.13)
A - Poured with a crazy amount of head. Settled to a thin layer with decent retention. Good lacing.
S - MAJOR brett funk. Darker malt presence than expected. Some American hops in the background. Really dominated by the brett funk. Too much for me, probably.
T - I enjoy the flavor more than the aroma. I think that if this had been made with "regular" yeast, I would find it too malty, but it's not offensive. The funk is still pretty strong. Hops are detectable in the background, but everything is dominated by the brett funk.
M - Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.
O - Ok, granted I drank this a little late but I was not thrilled by this beer. I will try it fresh if I have the chance. If you like a lot of brett... you may really enjoy this. I gave slightly higher scores because of the fact that I drank this a little late... Also - not sure this should really be considered an American IPA... :-) Again, maybe fresh the hops would have been able to hold up to the brett, but I don't think it would have been as much of an issue without the brett. Cool idea from a cool brewery.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, floral, grass, pepper, light pine, light funk, and floral/grassy earthiness. Incredible aromas with big bright citrus/tropical hop and brett ester notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, floral, grass, pepper, light pine, bread, light funk, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast/floral bitterness on the finish with light tangy tartness; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, floral, grass, pepper, light pine, bread, light funk, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and spicy/fruity brett flavors; with a great hop/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky/prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome Brett IPA. All around great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and fruity/spicy brett flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Evil Twin Brewing 'Femme Fatale Brett' @ 6.0% , served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $10.50
A-pour is pale yellow from the bottle to clear gold in the glass with a medium size white head leaving a streaky lace along the pint , (a little cloudy now after the last pour)
S-floral & fruit , hint of pine resin , due to the Brett perhaps
T-tasty IPA , if you like them piney compared to citrus , or fruity
MF-mild carbonation , feels more full bodied than the ABV suggests
Ov-good beer , decent IPA , I seem to appreciate the pine aspect more in my IPA's lately
