Tomy63 (200) - Clermont-Ferrand, - JAN 25, 2014
couleur dorée, mousse blanche assez épaisse pour une IPA, superbe nez expressif et très exotique, litchi, passion, kiwi, agrumes. La bouche est dans la même lignée, très exotique, légères notes caramélisées dans le fond, un peu plus d’agrumes, légèrement résineuse. Bonne longueur, les 73IBU passent tout seuls. Très belle IPA.

nosajhongkong (19) - North Point, HONG KONG - JUL 7, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2016 0,33L bottle bought at the Bottle Shop Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a hazy amber colour, with medium creamy white head and beautiful lacing. Aroma: Fruity and hoppy aroma of mango, grapefruit and passionfruit from the NZ hop ( probably Nelson Sauvin), with some lemon and citrus notes from the Amarillo and Citra hops. There is some malty, piney and resin backbones Taste: Medium citrus bitterness and malty flavour with some light grapefruit sourness. Palate: Medium body with balance and subtle bitterness. Dry and crisp finish with citrus and some tropical fruits aftertaste. Overall: A really solid and lively IPA. The aroma and the flavour are perfectly balanced with juicy tropical fruits note and malty and piney backbone. Really outstanding.

JFF (116) - - JUN 28, 2016
Bouteille de 33 cl. Arômes de citrus très intense immédiatement après avoir servi, mais qui se dissipe ensuite. Robe orange pâle, mousse généreuse blanche mais éphémère. Bon niveau de carbonation. En bouche, on retrouve étonnamment peu les arômes de houblon, malgré l’amertume qui revient à la fin. Bon niveau de corps qui vient balancé amertume et alcool.

Pours clear golden with aggressive white head. Aromas of pine, soap and citrus with a hint of malt. Decent carbonation and mouth feel for the abv. Taste of herbal and floral hops worth hints of lemon citrus. Finish is dry with a touch of bitterness. Not very much malt on the finish
