Has the tart, somewhat sour taste of a lambic due to Brett, combined with a nuanced hoppiness flavor.

Kind of an IPA, kinda not, The San Diego Mikkeller team embraces the west coast attitude about hop and decorates it with a host of fermentation science. Choosing a wild yeast strain and all of its peripheral flavor certainly takes away from the hops. ...or does it?

Pale gold and hazy to the eye, the beer's frothy eggshell cap thwarts a bold aromatic display of citrus, tropical fruit, melon and orchard fruit- all of the musty and worn variety. Its taste is supple with faint honey, pastry and modest caramel as the fruit, herb and bitter character awaits.

Bold, bright and beautiful the middle palate casts aside much of the earhten complexities of the nose and ushers in a citrusy taste of tangy orange, pink grapefruit and lime taste along with tropical nuances of papaya, pineapple and mango. Finishing with a lighter cidery tasrtness, a musty, oaken white wine character peaks through.

Medium light and trending dry, the IPA's finish is bitter with citrus peel, fine grassiness and a sharp spruciness perfect for a crisp, clean and refreshing taste and with a hint of earthen complexity. Pale grains and an undertow of burlap with cork trail into a brisk and dusty aftertaste.
