Looks like an over carbonated white ZInf with a wicked chill haze. fresh squeezed white grapes. Super fizzy Head. TONS of carbonation rushing straight up the glass like an air pump.

smell - right off the bat super tropical citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, orange peel, pine, super spicy notes that i wish i knew what they were to describe them better, almost like you through a peppercorn in it. some mild dirty sock Brett funk.

Taste- White wine, bitter bite into a bundle of pine needles, carb burn 1 inch up from the tip of the tongue. ends with a lingering spice on the curl of the back of the tongue heading into the throat.

feel- suuper lite. no body.

Overall this isnt that impressive of a beer, especially from Anchorage Brewing, they put too much time into trying to re create the IPA and failed miserably. This is a completely unbalanced beer and has funky bitterness from places that shouldnt contribute to the taste of a great IPA. I can only hope that Bitter Monk is their answer to this.

Delicious, smooth drinkable white ipa. The kumquat add a odd but enjoyable sweetness. Very good, a must try.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Back of bottle says Batch #7 Oct/2014.

A- Pours a hazy light golden color with a 3/4 inch white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Bright Brett aroma commingles with the bright citrus of the hops. The funk is more of a clean one that adds to the zesty nature of the hop fume.

T- Refreshing taste of citrus and spice with the Brett providing an extra kick to everything. Mild bitterness and overall a very light flavor. Mild tartness on the backend from the kumquats. Tropical fruit flavor comes through more as it warms.

M- Tight and spritzy with medium-high carbonation and a very light body.

O- A damn tasty Brett IPA. I kind of wish this came out in the summer since it would taste even better under the hot sun. All the ingredients in this beer work harmoniously to create a unified flavor profile.

Light, Lacey, quickly fading head. Good lacing. Pale yellow in color. Not a lot of smell to it. Flavor was a bit off to me at first. Half way through the first glass the hops, kumquats, and peppercorns became very detectable. Very tasty after getting used to it. I'd buy it again, maybe age it..
