2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I gave this beer an overall score of 10 only because of the high alcohol content. Other than that, it’s a terribly standard Pale Ale.

A lot of sediment. The aroma is intensely sweet and fresh fruit. Flavour is very nicely balanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very fragrant hop aroma with floral and grass and citrusy. Very bitter, active carbonation, further accentuating the crisp feel with the clean fermentation. Nice stuff. Not double ipa in terms of malts, but it is in taste power. And a heat from the alcohol too. A quite pale yet certainly imperial ipa, typical American stuff. (33cl can from Bière Révolution)

Pas vraiment une double IPA. Manque d’arôme. Par contre la base maltée est super bonne!

On tap in Portland. Taste is bitter citrus, pine, malt, dough and wood. Gentle, boozy finish. Well done.

Wow, a very wonderful IPA. Is has the most wonderful hops and has an overall very nice soft and impressive texture.
