a farmhouse ipa, and possibly my least favorite of the beers we had when we visited cellar west. it doesnt have the complexity the others have in terms of yeast, some brett here sure, but its really mild and extremely young, more belgian estery than funky to me, golden in the glass with a tall white head and a ton of bubbles. it smells like a whole heap of hops, northwestern and piney and bitter, perhaps overwhelming some of the more mild elements in here. the flavor of the hops is nice though, fresh and definitely oily and classic, i get some green vegetal spicy freshness, plenty of peppery bitterness, and wet pine and spruce notes, some orange peel too. its fresh for sure, clean in the finish, but really pretty bold, definitely an ipa at its core. i think a more evolved brett profile would make this a bit more dynamic, it almost seems like something is missing here, but the beer is tasty and drinkable and the hops are nice. cellar west is doing some really cool stuff and covering quite a lot of ground in terms of styles and unique ingredients and such. this is a cool take on an ipa.
