Four Winds – Juxtapose Brett IPA: Is an unfiltered IPA fermented with Brettanomyces yeast and silver medal winner at the 2014 World Beer Cup that is brewed at a strength of 6.5% with 50 IBU’s in Delta, BC by my favourite local brewer.
Aroma and Appearance: It pours a hazy and bubbly copper with three fingers of foam and lots of bubbles. The strong aroma was orange, mango, grapefruit and tangerine with a hint of funk.
Flavour: Right of the bat I got some blue cheese like funk, yeast bread, orange and mango, followed by a bitter grapefruit finish that gives you a nice musty funky after taste that is just the right amount.
Overall Impression: Love it, emulates that richness in good quality blue cheese and puts it in a very good IPA, really unique stuff and is bottle conditioned which always adds the best carbonation mouth feel.
Rating: I give it an awesome rating of 9/10, it’s got pretty much everything going right here.
Food Pairing: I have had this before with some Quebec blue cheese and it made a wonderful pairing, bringing out more richness in each.
This was just re-released, my bottle was from the first batch. Hope you get a chance to buy some more or anything from Four Winds as all the beers I have rated from them have been impressive. Check this link out if you want to see more.
