Au fût @ RedLight RedLight, Orlando, cuvée 2006. Quelle chance d’avoir pu déguster cette merveille à la pression et avec qcq années. Bizarre que elle soit référencée comme IPA, mais elle fut néanmoins un régal pour les papilles. Couleur est orange claire avec une palette de couleur allant vers l’orange sanguin / chair de pamplemousse. Mousse est épaisse et blanche. Arôme est aigre, note de vinaigre, fruité avec pas mal d’aromate sans pour cela trop noter le houblon. Palais garde cet aspect de vinaigre (moyen), pamplemousse, sec en bouche avec un fini mi-tropical qui est complémenter par cette aigreur. Possibilité d’y noter des traces de bois, peut être âgée en tonneaux de chêne? A déguster.

Draft @ redlight redlight. Brett on the nose with citrus and very floral. Pours amber with a solid white head. Tart and citrusy with floral notes, with a citrus blossom flavor, very interesting. Very complex with a lot going on.

Really? this is 6 years old? I had it on draft at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville in December 2010. Also - An IPA? Really? It was a really nice beer, don’t get me wrong, but I got a lot of fruity, slightly sour notes in the aroma and flavor, and not much hoppy flavors. Oh well, I liked it whatever it was.

radagast83 (5606) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Oh wow, really this old? Well, picked up a bottle - unaware of what it was. Poured a copper color, slightly cloudy, thick head. Yeast, spices, etc. Flavor was alright - though a bit spicy for my likes.

Bottled. Looks like apple sauce watered down with no head at all. Aroma is all citrus and reminds me of that Norwegian IPA style, with other notes of sweeter grapefruit and lighter spices and malt vinegar. Flavors continue with the stingy vinegar and apples a little sour with only lighter citrus. Sour lasting after taste lasting. I must say this is one of the most interesting IPAs I’ve ever had.

angrypirate06 (1387) - Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2010
2006 vintage. Cloudy orange born pour with medium white quickly receding head. Aroma is barnyard, lightly sour, lemon, grapefruit, some must. Flavor is must, wet books, dusty Brett, faded pine, some roasted notes on the finish.

750 ml bottle. 2006 vintage. Poured a slightly hazy ruddy dark orange color. The head was thick and light tan with good retention and lacing. Despite being stored in my cool basement, I think the hops have long since expired. Smelled very similar to fruit cake and ginger snaps. Not the aroma I normally associate with an IPA. Medium bodied and delicately sweet with moderate to highish carbonation. I tasted molasses, delicate ginger, dark fruits (especially black cherry), and the most delicate note of anise liqueur. No grapefruit, no pine, no flower blossom. Certainly not a hop bomb. Again, perhaps the hop-imparted aroma/flavor has long since moved on. That said, it was still pleasing overall.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is dry hoppy and mild fruity. Smooth fruity and barrel like. Bitter, dry and distinct grapefruity. Mild citric note. Light fruity impression. Mild acetone to phenolic note. Lasting cherry fruity to wooden impression.
