COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Agent Provocateur is a strongly hopped beer - a hybrid of an IPA and a Belgian golden ale. Bright, colourful notes of exotic fruits (pineapple, grapefruit and lime) and spices give way to a solid, long bitter finish. This beer is an excellent aperitif and goes perfectly with spicy food. Brewed by Craig Allan @ De Proef

jaghana (4418) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 22, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A cloudy yellow beer with low head. Smell is intense on fresh hops. Aroma of fruits like strawberries, raspberries and vegetables, resinous, notes of fresh licorice with an heavy round hops presence, finish is very long and bitter with spicy hops flavor. Very nice and drinkable beer, not with the usual lemony presence as some American IPA.

Swaroga (1637) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2012
33cl bottle. Filtered, has golden/orange liquid with medium thick white head. Nose : fresh aromas of esters and tart malt, It’s also very aromatic with citron, lime and pine notes of hops. Sip : low to medium body with creamy texture. Medium carbonation. Little sweet with malty body and bitter and dry citrus hops ending. In fact the ending isn’t long but does stay for a while. Not bad.

allmyvinyl (5528) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2014
330ml bottle from Great Grog. Pours clear amber, thick white head. Aromas are surprisingly light, citrus and pine, some yeast. Taste is balanced, but I expected more oomph! Perhaps the bar was set to high with the Cuvee d’Oscar thing, which was amazing. This is just good, in comparison.
