2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden/Orange on the pour with a lemon and a slight sweet aroma. It goes down fairly smooth with lingering notes of lemon/orange flavors and to me, the hops don’t kick in until the very end.

Blonde orangée légèrement trouble, fine mousse blanche. Nez agrumes : citron, citron vert et pamplemousse. La bouche est également fruitée : pamplemousse, citron et pêche. Le corps est léger, la carbo très bonne, l’amertume tenace. Une bonne IPA ni plus ni moins, bien portée sur les agrumes.

Light haze on this gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light with a modest fine carbonation. Light malts with thin sweetish cream. Modest floral bitterness and citric pith. Finishes smooth with a mild bitterness. Drinkable enough but lacks any real hop presence.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma has earthy hops and caramel malts. Green, leafy hops on the taste, quite bitter up-front. Earthy and resiny mostly. Soft body with medium carbonation. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Quite nice and easy to drink overall. Alcohol is really well hidden too.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light - some caramel and perfume like floral fruitiness, light herbal hoppynes. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, light - some caramel and light bread, light tropical fruitiness with light - some herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish with light caramel and bread, light fruitiness, light - some citrus/herbal hoppyness. "IPA" with caramel and notes of bread. Way too sweet/bready - coud really use more bitterness.

Don’t get some of these low ratings. I thought this was good. Very nice citrus and sour fruit aromas. Lots of sour citrus, and peach flavours before a bracing citrus rind bitterness takes over. Good stuff.
