22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lime, orange zest, lemon peel, hay, straw, grass, light pine, musty funk, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with awesome complexity and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, hops, and yuzu fruit notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lime, orange zest, lemon peel, hay, straw, grass, light pine, light pepper, musty funk, bread and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice/pine hop bitterness on the finish with some slight earthy tartness; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lime, orange zest, lemon peel, hay, straw, grass, light pine, light pepper, funk, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, hops, and yuzu fruit flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome fruited brett IPA. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, hops, and yuzu fruit flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

A: Pours a cloudy golden orange with a thick white head.
S: Aromas of yuzu, biscuit, crackers, lemon, kumquat, and oaky, lactic funk fill the nose.
T: Notes of yuzu, lemon, lime, tangerine, mandarin orange, kumquat, herbs, crackers, biscuit, and lactic funk fill the mouth. The finish is bright and fruity with yuzu, lemon, and biscuit notes underscored by subtle yeast funk.
M: Medium in body, slick and soft. Carbonation is delicate, yet crisp. This ale is seriously easy to drink.
O: A nice sour IPA. Really funky, yet also really fruity and with enough complexity to satisfy. Good mix of aromas and flavors too. Recommended.
