4.09/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy, light straw color with ample head. Tons of carbonation present in this beer, which is not surprising considering the Brett that this is fermented with. Very good head retention and lacing.

Smell: Smells extremely funky. Very spicy and pronounced horseblanket smell. Underneath that, the hops start to come through. Plenty of citrus as well as some tropical fruit scents.

Taste: Some bready and dry, wheaty malt peeks through initially, but that is quickly overshadowed by citrus, orange, mango and coriander. Completing the middle and back end is some serious hay funk.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light with ample carbonation. Very good for the style. Overall, I thought this was a very good Belgian IPA. I'm not the biggest fan of the style, but this one was very well done. The prominent funk aside, lots of great tropical fruit scents and flavors make this beer a good one to try.

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.
