On tap at The Proletariat. Told this was an American IPA brewed with Brett.

Pours a cloudy yellow body with bright floral aromatics. Smooth and creamy feel with only a touch of carbonation, reminiscent of a cask ale. Tasty citrus notes define the palate with alcohol barely noticeable. Great summer beer. Extremely drinkable.

Had on-tap at The Local Miami where it was served in a Sixpoint Resin snifter.

A- Pours a semi-hazy medium golden color with a 1/4 inch white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and thin surface foam.

S- Wonderful tropical fruit aroma from the hops. Sharp and slightly funky due to the Brett but it's not overly apparent.

T- The tropical fruit gushes out of the flavor with reckless abandon. Notes of lemon, pineapple, orange and a bit of grapefruit. Totally astounding. The bitterness is exactly on point with the malts being minimal yet providing the perfect amount of balance.

M- Snappy yet light. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Nearly seamless melding of IPA and Saison-like Belgian. Sublime combo of hop funk and Brett funk. Se magnifique.

L: Pours copper with a huge thick fluffy white head.

S: Stone fruit, funky dusty musty basement, spring flowers...great stuff

T: A very slight bitter pine grapefruit fades right into the funky exactly as advertised by the smell.

F: Nice and juicy ending a bit dry???

O: I'm a sucker for Brett IPAs so maybe a bit biased and this one delivers for me.

Absolutely delicious. The beer pours hazy and yellow gold. The color is quite pale for an IPA. The head is foamy and white. The aroma is pretty wonderful. Loads of bright citric hops and a good deal of funky yeast character. It's all tangerine rinds and farmhouse. Some honeysuckle in there, as well. Taste starts sweet with more bright, fresh citrus but quickly dries out and gives a little bitter bite. If the beer were sweeter, I'm not sure that there would be enough bitterness for me, but as is, it's just incredibly refreshing. Sort of a funky twang in the finish. Feel is light and airy with some hop oiliness. This is very much a brett IPA. It's big on fresh, bright citrus, brett funk and dry very light malt. Great for a hot day. It's just wonderfully put together and makes me want to buy more of those pricey Evil Twin bottles.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass- pours a hazy straw color with two fingers is head, exceptional retention and nice sheets of lacing.

Smell is very floral and pine hoppy with funky Brett undertones- intriguing.

Taste is spectacular- the same hop characteristics with a nice pale malt backbone and Brett is mixed in really well and leaves a long earthy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is typical for an IPA- medium body and moderately well carbonated. This is an excellent beer that I would get again.

A: Pours a hazy golden hue with a thin off-white head.

S: Sour aroma, with hints of green apple and citrus rind.

T: Brettanomyces funk comes through a tiny bit at the beginning, mixed with lemongrass, and lighter fruits. The middle is dominated — but not overly — by hop flavors. Floral notes near the end mingle with bright sweetness and hops, while a full blast of that Brett flavor clears things out.

M: Pretty light in body, not that carbonated until the finish.

O: If you’re looking for lots of hops and/or lots of sour, this beer isn’t for you. Despite being an IPA, it’s not overly hoppy, and despite using 100% Brettanomyces yeast, it’s not all that funky. There’s a really beautiful, very controlled tartness to this beer that makes an off-the-beaten-path style extremely drinkable. Once the Brett flavor fades between sips, you’re left with a nice bread-y residue that makes the bright, fruity, floral notes pop that much more when you go back. It’s an exercise in restraint that yields a well-balanced, easy-drinking beer.
