this is amazing. on tap at barrels and bottles in golden, im not sure how they get such cool beer all the time, but i am thankful that they do. this is a brett heavy ipa, as funky as they come, and i think its becoming my new favorite style of beer. i just love the funk and juicy hops together, and this really brings it in both departments. hazy blonde color, big head in a globe. the nose is way funked out brett, almost acidic, with plenty of tartness and mouth watering pucker to it. its also uniquely hopped, tropical and not real bitter. the flavor shows the same features as the nose, with the brett taking the lead, its dry and wild and really intense. the hops love that juicy pucker too, and play into it with a pleasant fruitiness, passion fruit and pineapple characteristics, and a fresh vegetal complexion as well. the carbonation is really high, making this a real tickler of the palate. more than anything else i love how intensely flavored it is, one of the more dynamic hoppy beers ive had lately. the only beer in this brett ipa style i have had lately that i like more than this one i think is the one from marble down there in the southwest, but this is pretty special stuff. go have a glass before its gone down there!
