4.75/5  rDev +14.5%

Up until this point, I thought none could rival the greatness that is Anchorage Brewing Co. With Funk'd Citra, however, I am here to swallow my words. This, my friends, is a world-class offerings in ever way: Serving size (12.7oz, corked & caged bottle), hand labled bottled-on date as well as a description for sampling and/or aging...well done!

A - Pours a hazy, yet golden-orange hue with about a 2-finger, soapy white head. Although the head subsides, the corners of the glass reflect a nice lacing. (4.75)

S- Massive! Grapefruit, White Grape, Passionfruit, and a slight oak tanin astringency courtesy of the oak aging all mingle effortlessly. Citra hops, oak aging and re-fermenting with brettanomyces makes for an absolutely perfect balance...well done! (4.75)

T- The taste is much more bitter/hoppy than suggested. The palate is left quite dry and Likewise, Funk'd Citra drinks much larger than the 6.5% ABV suggests. It is very light on the palate, yet very substantial to the human core. the Brettanomyces really can sneak up on you...I enjoy the bitterness, but the 'Brett
becomes overwhelming after a 12+oz bottle. (4.75)

M- Firmly light on the palate. Strong carbonation (courtesy of the bottle conditioning) makes for a highly effervescent and rather soft experience on the palate allowing the bitterness to shine as courtesy from the hops, adjuncts and oak aging in equal amounts. (4.75)

O- This is a MUCH bigger than stated on the bottle and does not disappoint in any regard. Anchorage is many miles away, yet continues to deliver their offerings as far as VT, and am nothing but impressed with everything I have sampled thus far (Galaxy White IPA, Bitter Monk, Darkest Hour). (4.75)

Bottled in March and kept in fridge since that point to maintain some of the hops while getting some work from the Brett. The beer has a nice foamy head on the cloudy blonde body. The smell is all Brett. The taste mirrors that. This is now a Brett bomb. There might be a hint of citrus peel from the Citra hops, but it mostly tastes like a Brett pale ale or a Brett saison. This reminds me of a more balanced version of some of the Crooked Stave Brett pale ales. Not quite as good as Saint's Devotion from Lost Abbey but along those lines.
