L: Lightly hazy golden orange with a small soapy white head. Medium retention, and some streaky lacing.
S: Sweet yet restrained passionfruit, orange, papaya, biscuit malt, mild grassiness.
T: Juicy passionfruit, gently sweet upfront with some moderate tartness near the finish. Some orange and pink grapefruit throughout, along with hints of mango and papaya. A slightly toasty biscuit malt backbone. Finishes well-balanced with a bit of white pepper spiciness, and lingering passionfruit and orange peel notes--though fairly clean overall.
F: Seems a bit thin at first, but the carbonation level is about perfect. Finishes crisp, slightly dry, and fairly clean.
O: Not the best passionfruit beer I've ever had, but it's very tasty. I would drink this fairly often if I could get it regularly.

330mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 5.49. Bottled 2/2/17. Served in a Wicked Weed snifter.

Pours a pale, semi-opaque lemony amber with a two and a quarter finger cap of white froth. A few small patches of retention but neither crown nor lace to speak of.

Smells of sweet, pulpy passion fruit, fruity, funky Brett, orange, melon, salt and bread. I pleasant blend of fruit, funk and hops.

Flavors of semi-tart tropical fruit pulp, farmy Brett, seeded berries, earthen funk, grapefruit peel, bitter pineapple core and some vaguely bready malt. Incredibly easy to drink.

Soft, medium feel with pillowy carbonation. Brett and passion fruit dominate the finish.

I'll consider this my celebration of Mikkeller's return to Georgia. Mastodon Mother Puncher is a damned delicious fruited Brett IPA. As the weather heats up I daydream of having tallboys of this by the pool.

Poured to an IPA Sovina glass.

A: The body is orange with a very cristalline touch to it. The head is white being only one finger thick. This head sadly shows little retention and leaves no lacing.
S: The only aroma coming from this beer is its hoppy profile and some minimal citrusy touch.
T: The taste is a bit complex as it brings some sweetness to the mouth with the citrusy profiles. Before going forward you can feel the earthy and piny hints that you'd expect from an IPA, then there's strangely some very strong acidic tones and only in the end you'll find the bitterness from the hops, ending with the passionfruit flavor. This last flavor is interesting but it doesn't connect with anything else. Plus, I find this beer to be very acidic for its style. Taste is majorly good but the acidic end caught me by surprise.
M: Body is medium low to medium. Carbonation is a bit harsh. Bitterness is mild and is surpassed by the acidity.
O: For a Belgian IPA, it's too acidic, probably due to the passionfruit.

Pours a hazy golden colour, with a medium compact head, good retention and a great lace. Aroma of citrics, resines, tropical fruits. Mediuom body, fizzy carbonation. Salty palate. Taste of lemon, notes of tropical fruits and spices. Maybe too much citric.
