Boy this was interesting. Not sure how old it was as there was no bottle dating on it. Initially it was fully brett and not much else. Really dry at first too. But as it warmed and opened up the underlying ale began to show. More malt than hops, that's why I wonder if there was a little age on it. The bitterness of the hops was evident in the bottom, but I drank that separately. While starting harshly it finished as a reasonable drinkable beer.

Copper and gold with almost no haze but a firm stream of bubbles rising in the middle of the glass. Topped with 2 fingers of yellow hinted head.

Brett on the nose immediately. Horse blanket, dusty cellar reminiscent of Cantillon, light floral quality like daisies after the rain.

Big bitterness on the front of the nose, a light marmalade bitter sweetness, Brett again, dry hoppy quality reminiscent of Duvel's yearly hop releases, light, flowery aromatics in there as well.

Feels light and dry for the ABV, smooth, refined tannins and light, dry carbonation.

Big bitterness I wasn't expecting but great balance. Very funky but refined brew that would be extremely versatile with food. Memories of Duvel one offs and Orval all come to mind as I sip this masterpiece. Got on Wishbeer, drank July 25th, 2016.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a soapy white head that leads little chunks of lacing.

Smells of funky brett with some underlying bright hops.

Tastes of the funk layered over the hops and a solid malt backbone. Brett leads off with funk and earth notes mostly. This gives way to some grainy malts with a fair amount of sweetness. Hops come next with notes of citrus. tropical fruits, and pine. Finishes with a lingering brett note.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a tasty brett IPA that hits all the right notes.

Served in a snifter at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A two finger billowy head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy yellow orange color with light vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Funk, barnyard, rubber tires, tropical, citrus, grassy, bready, toasted, and pale malts.

Taste: Have to admit that there is some balance to the brett, hops, and malt. Some chewy and bitterness in there too.

Mouthfeel: Funky, medium bodied, chewy, bitterness, a little dry, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall: This is actually an enjoyable funky IPA. I'll grab another.

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.

Appearance - opaque gold in color. Smell - funky IPA, as expected. Taste - follows the nose, a funky sort of dirty tasting IPA, maybe slight grapey taste. Overall - a good brett IPA. I have had better, but this is good.
