3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper with a good frothy white head. Malt, fruity beer with a honey aroma. Caramel flavour. Slightly hoppy. Syrup like texture. Seems more like a strong ale than an ipa.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
November 24, 2011 - with blankboy, jerc and mabel. 500ml bottle c/o J&K. Slighty hazy bubbly amber-gold with a decent lasting frothy-creamy beige head. Decent aroma - a little sweet - mild resin, citrus zest, a little faded (7-). Taste is good and juicy, again citrus zest, some tropical fruit character, floral and a hint of resin - on the sweet side, only moderate alcohol, quite nicely balanced, reminded me a bit of what DdC Corne du Diable tasted like at first. Average body, solid carbonation, starts sweet and a little sticky, medium length finish, floral and dry - nice stuff, not great, but solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is a little bit fruity and sweet. A little bit of honeyed malt along with a touch of light sweet pine and berry character. Some chewy honey sweetness and a little bit of peppery bitterness. It’s fading into something like an old ale - the bitterness is still there but there is a malt dominated profile. Kind of reminds me of Fullers Vintage Ale with a bit of age on it. I bet this would age well.

Bouteille 500 ml. Arôme riche et bomplexe mêlant fruits (pêches), houblons, malt, caramel et une touche de produit laitier. Le goût est bien balancé. Très peu amère pour le style. Ronde en bouche. Une bonne bière.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate aromas of roasted and caramel for the malt, pine and grapefruit for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of pepper and light dried fruits. Head is large, fizzy turning dense and rocky, off-white with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling clear medium amber. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then is lightly sweet and has a long moderately bitter finish. Palate is medium, watery, with a lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. A slightly imbalanced DIPA, a little overly sweet, but a very nice beer nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours dark copper, crystal clear with a big off-white head that sticks to the glass like crazy. Nose full of citrus and pine with a nice caramel base and a weird litter box edge. Leans a a little sweet on the palate with some good citrus and spruce presence but it’s not as punchy as I’d like. Finishes with a little bitterness that lasts a reasonable time.
