4.35/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: slightly cloudy. Golden. Persistent white head.

Smell: Yeast. Floral.

Taste: more wheat beer than IPA. Taste is good, but an IPA?

Mouthfeel: lots of carbonation for a bottle aged beer. Quite thin on the palate.

Overall: a tasty beer. A Belgian style wheat beer. Not so much of an IPA.

Serving type: bottle

4.09/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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.
