this was some FUNK!
poured into a tulip but still took a few sips for it to open up. not too heavy on the brett...was hoping for a bit more funky horse blanket.
super complex, down the whole bomber on a tuesday night. sweet jeezus.

3.7/5  rDev -13.1%

Pour is a pale golden peach with deep colored center and a white head. Nose has a mix of light grain and stale malt up front with a moderate amount of fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, and a bit of acidic citrus. Taste is a bit cleaner, grains a bit more integrated with a very tropical fruit back end. Body is lighter, a touch syrupy, with assertive carbonation and a fairly dry and bitter finish.

Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a nice huge white head with excellent retention and some very good lacing as well. Aroma of citrus hoppy notes with light Brett presence is very interesting. Taste is also dominated citrus notes with light piney notes with some Brett presence that is noticeable and a lightly sweet finish. Body is about average with excellent carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting take on the style but Brett presence is not as dominant as I would have expected.

Thanks to FondueVoodoo for this beer!

A - poured a hazy opaque bright orange with three big fingers if egg she'll colored head.

S - brett funk up front. Tropical fruit, sweet honey and pine aromas are also present.

T - huge tropical fruit bouquet up front. Pineapple, mango and Mellon notes are all present. A honey/caramel sweetness enters mid palate and gives way to a dry brett finish.

M - medium body, somewhat creamy. Light carbonation.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 7/6/14, thanks Rutager for sending the uber fresh bottle

A hazy golden orange with plenty of bubbles, big three finger head slowly falls leaving a island with plenty of random lace deep down the glass

S lots of tropical fruit, peaches, bruised mango, orange, lemon, and a little spruce and melon, brett comes out but more juicy hops then anything, smells sexy and strong

T caramel with slightly more brett then the nose and the tropical notes fade in the mouth but that still leaves plenty, some spice I can't place, tastes great but the nose has a little something on it

M medium bodied that just stays on the foamy side of cream, some lemon rind lingering with a hint of funk

O just enough brett to play a part, plenty of hops with enough malt to form some balance, this one's going down fast

I'd never heard of these guys and my first impression is a good one to say the least. I wouldn't know what to do if I had a second bottle, the hops are kicking ass fresh but I could see this getting interesting with some age too. What else are these guys brewing that I don't know about?

Thanks to Kump for this one.

Poured from a 650ml bottle, no #freshbeer info.

Very foamy pour, body is effervescent with streams of bubbles racing up a light gold body. Whipped head that leaves gobs of lacing is perfect. Aroma has slices of oranges mixed with a sweet and tart brett presence. The brett sets the tone for the flavor and gives way to lush fruit, mild tartness mixed with pine and peach fuzz. Very mellow but a nice lingering bitterness.

Appearance is a muted tangerine orange with dense and stubborn head thanks to the bottle conditioning. Laces pretty well, though eventually it settles into a thick ring and film.

Smell is pink grapefruit and honey - lots of sweet citrus, not much of the brettanomyces showing up at this point. Maybe just the slightest hint.

Taste is a mix of more grapefruit citrus plus a light pine woodiness too. Underlying is a bed of acetic acid giving a clean, crisp, but gentle sourness to the body. No "funk" component that would probably bring down the bright citrus character anyway.

Mouthfeel is crisp and lightly acidic with a very thin sappiness.

Overall I'm really, really pleased with this beer - the base IPA is wonderful and the brett's influence is subtle and only serves to benefit the base. The brett has a 'fresh' taste to it, which is to say it doesn't add much in the way of complexity but it also keeps out of the bright and wonderful flavour's way too.

A: Pours a golden apricot with 3 fingers of off-white head which quickly settles into a thin surface rim. Tiny streams of bubbles rise to the surface for some time after the pour.

S: Hop forward with notes of citrus and musky fruits together with yeast, fresh cut grass and slight funkiness.

T: Underripe stone fruit, citrus, musk, grass and yeast in the mouth followeded by mild funk.

M: a Medium bodied with light carbonation.

O: A very enjoyable take on an IPA. The Brett addition rounds out and mellows the hoppiness. I would definitely have another.
