Hop Savant (Falconer’s Flight) Brett IPA
Brewery: Crooked Stave Brewing Co, Denver, CO
Beer Style: Sour
This is an incredibly interesting beer. It’s has no “typical” IPA flavors by any means. I did find myself getting a lot of citrus notes (which Falconer’s Flight hops are known to have a lot of). But for the Brett part of it — that was spot on. Brett adds such a unique and sour component to this. It’s extremely sour, like pucker your mouth sour. But, I still really enjoyed it. I was happy that I had a chance to try this and would drink it again.
Primary fermented with Crooked Stave’s mixed Brettanomyces cultures and then received over three pounds per barrel of Falconer’s Flight hops, a blend of Pacific Northwest hops known for distinct tropical, floral, and citrus notes.
