look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
From 01/11/13 notes. Had this on tap at The Jeffrey in NYC. 14oz our in a snifter.
a - Pours a hazy bright orange color with one inch of bright white head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Looks nice and bright.
s - Smells of oranges, citra hops, brett, light funk, mangos and tropical fruits, straw, floral hops, and earthy malts. Nice nose with a lot or oranges and brett to it; I like it a lot.
t - Tastes of oranges, brett, tropical fruits, mangos, pineapples, citrus hops, floral notes, light earthy funk, wheat, and grapefruit. More mangos and tropical fruits; pretty awesome taste. Like it slightly better than the nose.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink.
o - Overall I liked this one a lot; I'm a sucker for IPA's that use Mangos and tropical fruits, and I love brett. reminds me of a few Tired Hands IPA's I've had like Magotago and Extra Knuckle, but will light brett. Worth checking out, would love to have it again.

4.05/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of orange and tangerine citrus zest are present in the nose along with notes of sourness from the brett.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with flavors of zested yuzu citrus, which are followed by notes of sourness towards the middle of the taste. A light to moderate amount of hop bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to have a nice balance between the yuzu fruit and brett as you can smell and taste both of them in nearly equal proportions.

3.35/5 rDev -19.3%
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.
