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.
