3.35/5 rDev -19.1%
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 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a big meringue white head that retains and laces the glass.
The aroma is tropical fruits with some musty funk and some sharp brett.
The flavor is sweet wheaty malts with tropical fruit and a musty yeasty hoppiness with a bit of brett. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.
Overall, a nice brett ipa with some unique tropical fruit from the yuzu.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
A nice apricot orange to peach color for the body, slightly cloudy, with some rising fast carbonation. Head is soapy with a touch of cream, and some real interesting puck formation and retention. Peaks and valleys and a giant mountain of white creamy in the middle four finger tall head, surrounded by soapy moats of lacing.
Real interesting notes on the nose. Hints of pepper and fruit, seems tropical. Real interesting smokey like embers coming off of this too, kind of wood and splintery strangely. Bit of earthy quality too, an interesting mix of stuff in there.
Weird palate. With all this diversity on the nose, you'd think it would be interesting. Mid palate fills with a chalky and solid hop bitterness, hinting at dried pine needles. Simple malted mouth coating, but not much fruit quality or flavor. Brett action seems quite subdued and hardly noticeable at all
Overall an interesting take, but it comes off as just another ordinary IPA.
