4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
per me rappresenta un esempio di birra dove il malto,luppolo e lievito, sono incredibilmente bilanciati.
nel bicchiere si presenta di colore biondo torbido e schiuma bianca di media carbonazione.
l’odore mi ricorda fiori e agrumi con un sapore incredibile di luppolo.
persiste in modo delicato anche dopo averla bevuta.

11.2 fl oz bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a 3 inch loose light tan head. The aroma is caramel malt, lightly toasted and a citrus apricot behind. There is also a bit of mineral and a hint of yeast in the back. The taste is bitter citrus peel up front followed by the toasted malt behind. The bitter mineral earth carries finish. The palate is light to medium bodied with low carbonation and dry earth bitter mineral finish. No bottle date, this may have been a bit past it.

33 cl bottle @ home. Clear amber color. Big, dense off white head with good retention & lacing. Aroma’s: herbal hoppiness, some malt-sweetness, yeast with some fruit retronasal, a little (hop-)acidity. Flavor is medium bitter and medium sweet. Body is medium. Finishes slightly dry, herbal and medium bitter. Nice beer, but IPA? Perhaps it was on the shelves too long?

Caramel notes in the aroma from a bottle pour. Squashed plums, yeastiness of a saison character. Sludgy looking thanks to the bottle fermentation. Small white head with decent lacing
Lovely, smooth peppery taste with a bitter orange effect too. Smooth on the palate with a good aftertaste. Would go great with a blue cheese, I think.
Not very hoppy for a beer that is called an IPA but a lot happening with the saison-esque characters.

Putting great, expressive hops in the hands of brewers with exceptional finesse; thank you to whoever convinced Yvan and Bernard that this was a good idea. This is what happens when you take fruity, aromatic, exuberant American citrus hops and send them to finishing school, winding up spicy-bitter, not resinous, dry, lively, in a gorgeous deep golden sturdy-foam-capped frame. All those other so-called "Belgian" "IPAs" need to recognize.
