3.35/5 rDev -19.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: a deep orangish yellow. Very hazy and opaque. Less than a finger of a white head that fades to a small lacing
Smell: strong yuzu fruitiness. Bitter citrus peels. And some tangy fruitiness. Mostly fruity overall with little to no malt presence.
Taste: opens up with yuzu fruit. Neither overly bitter or sweet. Transitions to some citrus peel- bitter hops. Fairly weak taste for all the smell.
Mouthfeel: sticky and Brett influenced. Quite bitter and very dry
Overall: kind of disappointing. I expected a lot more funky yeast in the taste and the taste was way too weak for all that could have been. All the Brett influence I found was in the mouthfeel when I would prefer to taste it. Also the second beer with yuzu I have had and neither was spectacular.

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.
