750 ml bottle made in collaboration with Anchorage Brewing - with a different label than is showing here - sort of a blob-like monster graphic on a typical Anchorage bottle. Poured into a teku. This is a beautiful beer. Hazy, glowing, lemonade yellow with a tall, pure white head that leaves a nice trail of lace. Smell is lemony with a hint of straw and yeast. Taste is awesome....complex and changing in interesting ways as it oxidizes. Mouth is medium body, slightly dry, nicely carbonated. Overall, a brilliant combination of hoppy IPA with brett. Fantastic beer.

Pours a hazy light yellow with copious, interminable head. Funky and smooth like a George Clinton album. The Brettanomyces does an outstanding job covering up the fairly high abv. Incidentally, the bomber I procured flounts a groovy candle label. Bonus points for that.

Aroma is lemon, grapefruit…a touch of pine. Cloudy Dark yellow color; small creamy head.Taste is refreshing though a bit pasty/bitter/stale. Good Beer however, with a nice bite.

Almost orange color and an inch of head on a really hoppy beer, good job. Aroma was dropping the hops, sturdy, c school hops.

Taste, plenty bitter forward. Dry malt bill, not a lot of thickness and weight to it. The beer is decent, the price is astronomical. Better options at half the price, won't be revisiting this one again.

Review is from 2012.
Strong, hoppy aroma has a firm fruity note, mainly citrus but with some pear and apple. Pours a slightly hazy coppery brown with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled buff head. Strongly hoppy flavor has woody, sour citrus and evergreen notes with a hint of caramel. Smooth, firm texture has a decent amount of fizz, and finish is quite hoppy and has both bitter and sweet undertones. Let this one invade your mouth!
