22oz bottle split and poured into a a snifter.

A: Pours a very cloudy light yellow orange with a one finger white head. Leaves some nice lacing on the sides while the head dissipates quickly.

S: Initially Brett with a backing of hops. Reminds me of a citra hop with a lemongrass accent. Just a touch of sweet malts. Saisoniness from the yeast. Earthy and grassy tone to it.

T: Certainly a hoppy brew, with a strong compliment of Brett yeast. They play out well together and provide a bit of spice. The blend has a refreshing tone to it

M: Light body with a very crisp finish from the yeast. Has a dry finish from both the hops and yeast, interesting combination.

Overall love the direction and intention of this style of IPA. Can't wait to see it developed further. Brett and hops are a tremendous compliment to one another.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.
