look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

500 mL bottle. Lightly hazy orange body. Smells of heavy brett. Bright orange tropical fruits. Taste has an intense amount of brett as well. Some doughy malts. Hops are a little lost here, but still has some orange. Big brett earthy bite in the finish. Medium body. High carbonation. It's not bad, but it's not great.

On tap at Pizzeria Paradisio

Appearance: yellowish pour with decent head and lacing
Smell: Nice citrus with some pineapple and earth, a bit mild
Taste: Similar to the aroma, a bit earthy. Not particularly "funky"
Mouthfeel: medium body and carbonation
Overall: decent IPA, with a name that is a bit misleading

First had: on tap at Monk's, Philly, PA

Hazy, golden-yellow pour with a creamy white head that retained well, and left layers of light lacing on the glass. Nice aroma, fruity esters, citrusy hops, fresh cut grass. Taste was similar to the nose, citrusy hops and tropical fruit, biscuity malts, fresh grass, light earthy funk, herbal tea, and a touch of lemony sourness. Crisp and clean mouthfeel, light-medium body, and easily drinkable.

Reads like an above-average IPA with a spicy finish (figure that's the saison or Belgian yeast at work there?)

Had on tap at Nosh Bow.

Decent creamy head, clear honey orange color.

Nose light funk, bit of Brett funk, light malty toasted grainy, bit fruity hop, grassy, very fresh beer aroma

Nice malt, toasted slight grainy malt, fresh malt flavor, very very light Brett funk, light bready. Nice hop character, little grassy some earthy hint pine and even touch fruity bit of hay and grass like. Finish is drier, fairly bitter with more grassy hop and little bready.

Mouth is med bod decent carb.

Overall ok but nothing too special, decent hops and malts, very little funk.

On tap at The Lion's Pride, served in a tulip.

Gold color with a thick white head, a good two fingers. It left a lot of lace.

Grassy, earthy hops. Some citrus and fruit. Sweet malt.

The hops dominated the taste. There was a little grapefruit, but more in the way of pineapple. A sweet biscuit background.

Nicely hopped, very drinkable. Not as funky as the name implied.
