22oz. bottle poured into a tulip.
A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a magnificent, meringue-like head of 2 fingers that recedes slowly, leaving a craggy lace.
S: Citrus, coriander, sour, and funk. Peppery. A hint of vanilla and oak. There is some wood and barn and light pineapple from the brett.
T: Bitter. Spicy. Finishes like a chardonnay. It's oaky and slippery with some savory vanilla. The malt character is light. Fermentation is spicy and funky. There is an intense bitterness.
M: It's smooth, with some unenthusiastic carbonation. Slightly drying.
O: This beers struts some impressive plumage but ultimately falls flat. I may have to get used to this style and then give it another try.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into Dogfish Head goblet. Batch #6, April 2014.
A - Pours a fizzy, lite beer yellow, with some serious haze. About a finger of bright white head lasts for a very long time. A blanket of white lacing paints the glass as I drink. Looks like I would hope a Bretty-IPA would look.
S - Tart, peppery aroma full of sour fruits, bubblegum, and a touch of funk. Lacks the candy sweetness typical of the Belgian IPA style. I consider this a good thing. Complex and inviting.
T - Starts with lemon tartness, quickly replaced by a belgian spice billing. Nice dry, piney hops on the back end. The finish is full of citrus. Tart, but lacks the funk I picked up in the nose.
M - Prickly carbonation with a fantastic dry finish. Drinks true to its mid-range ABV.
O - This is the first time I have seen this (or any Anchorage beer) in Delaware. Hoppy Belgian beers are typically among my favorites so I had high hopes for this one. I couldn't have asked for more in the aroma. It is a complexity of brett, citrus, hops, and spices. The flavors followed suit, but I would have liked a little more. There are no flavors out of place, but the flavor came off a bit diluted, the more I drank. A great beer, but I was looking for something with more flavor. Still among the best int he style I have ever had. Well done, but I won't be running back to the store to get another $11 bomber.
