Notes / Commercial Description:
E is definitely not a Belgian IPA - it's a funky version of Edward (american pale ale) - fermented with brettanomyces, dry hopped with galaxy, and aged on stainless for four months. Basically, we refer to it as a farmhouse pale ale - a cross between a saison and an american pale.

2012 Release: Aged in Mimosa barrels.
2014 Release: Aged in wine barrels with resident yeast and microfloa for 1.5 years.

750ml bottle into a matching HF large wine glass. The brew appears a hazy golden with a white cap that fades leaving stringy lace.

This smells of grapefruit with hint of oak, sweet cereal grains and lemon.

The taste is grainy with caramel, oak, slight herbal grapefruit zest and somewhat medicinal feeling towards the back.

This is medium in body with modest carbonation. There is a lot going on here that kinda clashes yet it smells bright and zesty and tastes very malty. I like it, it is just is a weird hodgepodge.
