4/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.
A: Hazy, pale yellow color with over two fingers of white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.
S: Crisp--even sparse--brett-affected yeast metabolites that exhibit remarkable focus and clarity without being overpowering.
T: Begins dry, with soft refined malt and some bright pithy fruit. Acidity is strong into the middle where the beer becomes sweeter, more mineral, and tinted with a breezy quality of goat pasture. The latter lingers during the finish, faint but complex.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, refreshingly acidic--especially late, with brisk carbonation.
D/O: An excellent brett beer, this Belgian-style strong pale ale struggles to live up to the IPA label. Instead, it delivers an austere dose of wild yeast funk with little associated tartness.

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.
