Picked this up at Liquor World in Fayetteville, AR

Pours an effervescent bronze with 3+ fingers of pearl white head. Stellar head retention & lacing, clouds up a bit

S: Breadyness, melons & grapefruit, plus pineapple

T: Pineapple, grassiness & pears, a whisper of Brett at the most, plus a little grapefruit up front. More pineapple & grapefruit, plus dryness & pears as this warms, plus minute Brett sourness. Finishes tart, Brett finally shines through along pineapple & grapefruit

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation that smooths out over time, nice balance

A good AIPA, not a hell of a lot of Brett in this though, I wanted more to be sure. Very drinkable & enjoyable

Drank from my Ciney sniffer

A - Pours a pale hazy golden straw colour with a thick white head that retains and laces.

S - A combination of citrus hop and malt, not much sour character.

T - Up front some decent hop notes that are balanced not overpowering, the brett kicks in on the finish but is superseded by the bitterness at the end.

M - Medium body and low to medium carbonation.

O - Recommended and Interesting as a one off but not enough brett for me.

A slightly cloudy but nice golden straw color with extremely long lasting head

S was caught off guard by the smell i was expecting a very sour beer but again i am new to the sour world so. Smelled like your typical ipa but so so much better. the classic horse blanket smell is there and melds well with the hops

T Again was expecting a sour but this has to be one of the better ipas i have ever had. i do not think i can go back to your average ipa. sadly the 14 dollar price tag will keep this beer in my special treat category

M very dry which lets the hops come foreword

O Will buy this time and time again. shocked at the over all low rating by the masses. We have all spent money on a brew that we never knew and did not like it. Spend your cash on this gem you will be happy you did

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Tawny gold with thick creamy head - a meringue

S: Pineapple, lemon, some wild notes

T: Initial balance between malt and hops, though unexpected sour/barnyard finish

M: Slightly thin and puckering

O: Interesting cross between IPA and yeast-oriented, perhaps more of each would work better. Kudos to Evil Twin for pushing the boundaries.

Ok let's just start by saying these guys are really cool and anything they produce has to be tasted at least once and it seems IPAs with Brett is the new style everyone wants to brew and yeah I'm on that bandwagon,this puppy pours a slight hazed golden pale yellow hue almost akin to urine colour and leaves a dollop of a rather frothy head resembling a weird looking cloud and clingy lacing sporadically placed,the smell is pineapple,of course funky Brett,mangoes and bubblegum nice but not unique,mouthfeel is medium bodied moderately carbonated and super sessionable with tastes of pineapple,paw paw,mangoes,sherbet,bubblegum and finished with a funky Brett meets hops bitterness and yeah it's nice and quite the quaffer but its nothing ill be hunting for when its all gone cheers.

awesome beer! bretted out ipa may be my new favorite style, and while this isn't as good as the one from anchorage, it is still a very clever, intriguing, and yummy brew. hazy pale yellow on the color, very light indeed, with an inch or more of bubbly white head that lasts only seconds. great nose, this beers best feature I think. tart from the brett, funky as can be, but also light and fruity, with peach and pear notes, polleny and floral, very summer, very tempting. complex, I love it and cannot breath it in deeply enough. the flavor is a little less intense and interesting than the nose, but its all of the same elements coming together. the brett isn't quite as stark, or as bright, as it smells like it would be. the fruit is more relaxed, and the bitterness of the hops really shines though. if I close my eyes, I can almost block out the brett and focus in on the ipa base beer, which is quite good. the brett makes in confused a little, this might be lost on the average beer guy. I found it to be quite brilliant though, luckily. carbonated almost too much, its hard to take a big swig of this. a lot to contemplate here, I love beer that makes me think. worth the price, whatever they are asking in your market.

A-Pours a milky orange. Good, white head is full and plump. Lots of speckled lace.

S-I didn't find the aroma to be anything but dazzling in both hoppiness and funkiness. The Brett and hops work well together but neither of them really jumps out. Citrus and Brett. Oranges and eucalyptus from the Brett.

T-I surprisingly found the flavor to be even less interesting. The flavors are a bit dull. Moderate citrus and grass from the hops and a relatively subdued herby, medicinal Bretty yeast. They work well and in the end the flavor is tasty. I have my qualms though.

M-Medium body, medium carb, medium bitterness...medium.

O/D-Decent but too expensive for the product. This one could have been more aggressive in any aspect of its flavor and I would have appreciated it more. My review is more negative than it should be though, it's a well-above average beer.

Poured into a tulip. First review 3-22-13. Re-reviewed and found it to be even better.

A - Minimal white head (probably due to the bartenders pour), cloudy yellow, some lacing, not much carbonation.

A - A great nose. Citrusy and even a slight flora. Almost Stone "Enjyoy By."

T - Grapefruit/lemon grass, slight tart, yeasty, a little bitterness in the finish.

MF - Dry

O - Have this beer just for the aroma. I dinged this beer for its appearance, which could be a bit unfair because I did not pour the beer.
