look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pours a cloudy medium golden yellow in color with moderate to significant amounts of active visible carbonation quickly rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint straw yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a half finger thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical/pineapple and citrus/tangerine hops over moderate aromas of brett funkiness and just a touch of slightly sweet grainy malts.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of slightly sweet grainy malts which are quickly overtaken by the moderate to strong flavors from the hops - tropical/pineapple, citrus/tangerine, and tropical/passionfruit. There is a light flavor of light fruit/white grape and a moderate amount of brett hay-like and spicy funkiness. Light amounts of bitterness which does not linger for long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly prickly with a light to moderate amount of dryness.

O: Really nice combination of flavors/aromas between the Nelson Sauvin hops and the Brett - they really complement each other and there is enough complexity to keep it interesting. Easy to drink and very enjoyable - well hidden alcohol.

2 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours lightly hazy bright gold color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, tangerine, melon, white grape, passion fruit, orange peel, clove, pepper, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright hops and moderate fruity/spicy brett notes; with good strength. Taste of pineapple, tangerine, white grape, passion fruit, melon, orange peel, clove, pepper, floral, grass, pine, and grass/yeast earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness and peppery yeast on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, tangerine, melon, white grape, passion fruit, orange peel, clove, pepper, floral, grass, pine, and grass/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of bright hops and fruity/spicy brett flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Brett IPA. All around great complexity and balance of bright hops and fruity/spicy brett flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

This funky little ipa pours a hazy golden straw color with a fizzy white head that lasts throughout the pour and leaves beautiful legs and lacing. The aroma is an abundance of fresh hops with notes of lemon, orange peel, coriander, and funky yeast. It is quite refreshing and pleasant smelling. The mouthfeel is lighter yet still sticky. Quite effervescent and thirst quenching. The flavor is an overwhelming bitter hop parade. There is a note of saison funkiness present but it is muted by all the bitter citrusy hops. It is very good but I'd rather get a bit more of the Brett notes than just all hops.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip

A- Cloudy Apricot orange with a nice 2 fingers of head that stays around. Looks very Farmhouse to me.

S- Was not expecting the hop presence this thing has! Whoa! I'm getting lots of Berries, dry white wine, Oranges, Pineapple juice. Very Tropical and lush with a slight wine finish. Love it. Smelled this beer over and over and over, almost didn't want to drink it

T-Same as the smell. Tastes like an orange juice pineapple juice mix with a dry white wine finish. Also getting some slight funk towards the end which I'm assuming is the Brett showing up to the party.

M- Farmhouse like carb. Seems bottle conditioned. Very creamy mouth feel and is almost like drinking juice

O- Wish I knew how old this bottle is. This is my first all Brett IPA and I have no clue why there aren't swarms of them around. Reminds me of a IPA/Saison cross. Total Nelson Sauvin showcase. Wondering if the Brett preserves some of the hop smell/flavor? This is the type of beer I wish I had a case of to review from inception and see how it changes as it ages. If you see this thing laying around pick it up! if not let me know and I will.

Pours a murky golden with a small frothy ivory head that dissipates to a ring of foam.

Citrus in the form of lime and grapefruit dominate the aroma. There's a bit of subtle earthiness. Almost has a Belgian yeast character.

Flavor reveals dominant grapefruit underpinnings, with onion and resin countering toward the lightly bitter finish. Bitterness increases late, but does not overwhelm. Malt is subtle and slightly bready.

Body and carbonation are moderate, with a slightly astringent finish and modest alcohol warmth.

Grapefruit and onion dominate, overall, and the balance is decidedly flavoring hops. Bitterness is at a good level for my palate. I'm not a huge onion hop fan, though.
