Des céréales bien croquants qui se laissent infiltrées par une résine très amère aux teintes d’agrumes et de fleurs. Avec l’effervescence qui est au plus bas, je me retrouve devant un monstre de buvabilité.

BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in Ye Old Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 17th May 2014. Amber pour with a full white crown that hung around for a while. Hops rule the roost throughout the brew. Not as in your face as some of the US West Coast beers but plenty for the UK. A bit one dimensional maybe but pleasant all the same.

1/2 at the Gateshead Beer Festival. Honey brown with a white head. Resinous and fruity aroma. Lovely pine, citrus hoppiness. Juicy blue fruit. Generous mouth feel. Enjoyable.

Pikkio (11) - ITALY - APR 19, 2014
Hazy amber with a white and fluffy head. Aroma of tropical fruits and resins with agrumes notes. Body is a bit viscous but refreshing. Tastes a lot of fruits, but has strong malty hints which recall dried fruits rather than fresh fruits. Agrumes and resin comes again within a dry hoppy finish which is not too bitter though. A very well balanced beer, drinkable, tasty and not too bitter. defnitely recommended .

Cask @ Brewery Shades, Crawley. Amber, clear with considerable white head and lacing. Tropical fruit aroma with a hint of malt and hay. Taste starts out slightly sweet and then... I can feel my tongue dry. Wow. Bitter on a US IPA scale but also nicely balanced. A well executed beer to cherish and remember.

Habanero (3252) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2014
Bottled. Pours slightlt hazy amber with an avarage, lacing off-white head. Arma of citrus, caramel and notes of apricot. Sweet flavor that ends dry and pleasant bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A nice pale ale.
