2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 341 ml. Pours burgundy with tiny beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is strangely malty for an IPA. Taste, on the contrary is way too much on earthy hops. No balance at all. Drinkability is low. Not very interesting.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Citrus and grapefruit mainly with toasted cereal notes.
Appearance: Clear copper, average size frothy head, between light brown, and off-white, mostly lasting, no lacing.
Taste: Attack is all bitterness. Grapefruit is all over with orange zest notes. Hops are very cutting with ash and smoke accents. Not a lot of malted flavors.Finish is dry, ashy and very long lasting.
Very dry and bitter IPA. Couldn’t find any malt accents. If you look for strong bitterness without any sugar this your beer.

Thanks Pat! Dark brown orange with a decent white head. Aroma is very malt heavy, not really much for fruity hops i expected. Really malty, some grapefruit hops, some herbal notes and quite bitter. Sticky and chewy. Not a bad IPA, but not my favorite kind of one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (341 ml). Amber with a medium diminishing brown head and some lacing. Aroma is malty with citrus and hops. Taste is of grapefruit with a good malty body. There’s also some earthy/minerals notes. Medium but sticky bitterness. Mouthfeel is dry. Good IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
341 ml bottle. Pours an almost completely opaque, orange-brown amber with a long-lasting beige head. Smells of cereals and hops. Tastes like light caramel, cereals, unsweetened dough. Strong, sharp bitterness. Very dry. Herbal, earthy, sandy. Maybe a hint of sweet citrus, in there? It’s so strong and overwhelming! Medium-bodied, thick, resinous mouthfeel. Very solidly bitter, that’s what I’m looking for when I grab an IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice hop aroma that let you think of a hard malt backbone. A different story happens in your mouth. Hard bitterness slaps your tastebuds. Malts are there, but almost in a salty-final note. This one is made clean bitter hop. A good hard IPA that doesn’t wait too long to bite you. Not my kind of IPA, not the school of hops I studied at, but sure, a nice beer to drink once in a while...

Solid IPA with a nice aroma. Palate is invaded with awesome bitterness and hops is citrus and floral. Impressed.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught, Bateau de Nuit. Reddish-amber with a thin, bubbly head. Lots of chewiness on the nose. Very rich with too much crystal malt and the hops seem a bit old.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at bateau nuit. Rich amber color with nice lace. Aroma frightfully chewy with caramel malts overpowering all else. Toffee and oatmeal cookie. But the flavors are different, with a super lovely bitter hop finish that lasts forever.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle received as a generous extra. Pour has a dark garnet red color with a thick two finger head that fell slowly back to the surface. Aroma has caramel, fruity sweetness, perfume, and damp hops. Mouth feel is light and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor has a malted base, increasing bitterness, perfume, caramel, and a lingering finish. The hops really center around the bitter side and have almost a soapy flavoring at times.
