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 (5497) - 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.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2010
Bottle from Cave à Bulles. Hazy amber with a solid and lacing head. Fruity hoppiness with hints of bread. Quite hoppy, some herbal notes in addition to exotic fruits. Nice and refreshing.

sebletitje (9313) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2011
Bouteille 33cl venant de l’esprit écossais de Craig Allan de La Capsule @ Lille. Couleur orangée, col épais blanc. Au nez, je suis de suite pris par cet arôme houblonné laissant une présence citronnée et de pamplemousse. En bouche, on a une bière qui tend à épouser le style américain IPA tout en conservant ce style belge. Palais mélange les goût surtout au niveau des houblons qui donnent une fine amertume tout en agrémentant la dégustation de notes de citron, pamplemousse avec une fine couche d’épice avec une légère présence herbeuse. Le tout reste assez sec en bouche avec un fini d’où ressort un malt léger.

First missed this at the Abbaye des Saveurs in Lille, because I couldn’t carry anymore really, but thankfully found it later at Cave a Bulles in Paris. Shared with the usual suspects. POured a murky peach colour with a slightly off white head that went away slowly. Sweet aromatic hoppy nose, lime, some yeastiness, ok enough. Light soft agrumey taste, not much bitterness. Smooth, a bit light and overall nice!

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 24, 2011
06/05 0.33 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured hazy orange body with medium sized head. Very pleasant orange hop aroma, a bit of yeast. Slightly bitter flavor, smoothed with yeast and milk bread malt. May have a touch of coriander. Not heavy in body, rather thinner, with longer citrus and bread finish. A fine beer it is.

Swaroga (2104) - Gdańsk, POLAND - 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.
