I was just at the Brewery to pick up a couple of cases of Mastermind they canned. I haven't tasted Mastermind before I tried the their mainstay Fiddlehead IPA and the Brett on the Dance Floor. After I got my case I went back in to get a taste of the Dance Floor. I really couldn't tell much difference between the Dance Floor and the regular IPA. I was expected more flavor from the Brett yeast. The beer wasn't bad. However, it wasn't enough for me to buy a growler after I just bought my 3 cases of Mastermind (very nice beer!!) or to travel the 2.5 hour trip I just did just to get the Brett. The beer was smooth and pleasant though.

dug this one a lot, more of a subtle brett strain in here than some of the other brett fermented india pales out there, very mild, funky but not tart at all. the base ipa itself is pale golden and very east coast, delicate almost, gentle waves of citrusy hops roll over the tongue, without much harshness or bitterness at all. the brett makes it drier than most ipas, and adds a cool yeast character in the finish, but it never gets super yeasty. it serves to cut and lighten the resinous hops and to make the beer a bit more drinkable for me. carbonation is great, and the soft feel makes the body seem lighter than it really is. i would love to see more brett hoppy beers, i think there is a real synergy there, and its nice to see someone like fiddlehead just run with it. aside from their sap beer, this is the best i have had from them.
