Magnifique mousse assez durable. Absolument translucide (un point négatif pour moi, visuellement j’adore les bières opaques!). Très fuitée, assez complexe tout en restant fraiche. Il y a des notes agrumées mais aussi des notes moin acides, comme le cantaloup. Une amertûme bien balancée. Une bonne IPA, définitivement axée sur les houblons. Bravo!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden yellow with a small head. Floral and grapefruit hops aroma. Bitter and astringent flavor, but a bit of misplaced funk. This is quite good, if overrated.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 A hazy orange beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is bready malt, tropical fruit, and floral. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus peel, and earthy.

Slight grapefruit notes. A very good IPA. Pretty much a hop bomb, but drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 This is like a comfortable cardigan, a bit thin in places. Draft and highly anticipated and recommend. It is something I’d happily drink a lot of in a session. But it is safe. I was expecting something more aggressive, or peaky in the profile, and I got a very very good, easy drinking safe beer.
2nd January I had this again in a bottle. I’ve thought about this, and this really is a good beer, and to be enjoyed. I think I was harsh in my previous thinking, lumping this in ’the pack’ when it’s one of the leaders. I gave myself an uppercut.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2016 Nitro version on tap showing neon yellow with half a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows clean sweet grapefruit.
The palate is obviously extremely smooth, full bodied, a lot of pithy grapefruit bitterness, with the fruit showing more in the background and a light bitterness on the finish.

Nice hazy orange with white head. Aroma is alot of sweet malts, orange, sweet fruits, tropical fruits, honey. Taste has a nice piney bitterness, grapefruit, caramel sweetness, orange, lemon, resin. A very nice IPA. THis bottle was enjoy by 10/24/12 so not sure how old the bottle is? Still an awesome IPA and I bet that it is even more awesome fresher! Cheers!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can into a pint glass from The Drinkery, Londonderry NH. Aroma is strong pine, herbs, fruit, spruce, while still being able to glean a maltiness, and some basement toward the bottom of the glass. Appearance is mild hazy orangish yellow with mild sparkle but nice foamy white two-finger width head, mild lacing. Taste is dominant mild-to-moderate bitter but with some sweet fruitiness throughout for balance including into long-lasting finish. Palate is refreshing light-to-medium body with thin, slightly creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall, above average appearance and palate but won’t knock your socks off. Very interesting aroma with some of that complexity translating over to the taste but a little over to the bitter side for me.

Bomber shared with and thanks to Axilla. Poured slightly cloudy orangish in color with a nice off white sticky head that left great lacing on the glass. Aroma is very piney and floral with a nice sweetness to back it up. Tastes of sweet american hops, grapefruit, piney, resin, with a nice caramel malt backbone. Very fantastic and drinkable IPA.
