3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy amber body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy and oaky hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, fruity, and some yeasty notes. Ends with a long, robust, warming bittersweet finish. Very well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Belmont Station. This one is bright yellow and foamed up like a crazy motherfather when poured into my Falling Sky pint glass. Aroma is a nice balance between caramel malts and some citrus (Grapefruit and apricot) hops. Flavor is much the same, a little sticky icky and perhaps a touch too much malt for me, but a solid beer that would probably be even better closer to the source.

On tap at Express de Lyon, Paris. Golden coloured, small to medium sized white head, intensive fruity hoppy nose. Jam like fruity hoppy taste with notes of caramel and spices. Pleasant grapefruity finish. Enjoyable and really nice and fresh IPA.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Una birra di gran classe dal profumo delicato e deciso. Intenso il profumo floreale misto ad una agrumato presente e mediamente persistente.
Molto elevata la carbonizzazione tanto da non riuscire sempre a dominarla.
Il retrogusto Ť amaro con persistenza di arancia e resina.
Nel complesso una birra molto raffinata con un bel colore biondo ramato.

Looks like itís been scooped out of the Mississippi until itís held to the light when the amber glows. Got a wiff of citrus and hemp but it was poured with a big head, so not a lot to write home about..... until I had a big gulp. Like my buds were bitten by an amarillogater. Bitter, fruity, creamy and oily. Then itís gone, leaving a lovely lingering taste on my tongue and aroma in my ítash... and a fuzzy head. Like a sordid one night stand. Sssh. Donít tell my wife.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle in a snifter. Pours amber with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a little caramel malts and some light spiciness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, but not the best of the style.

Shocked that I can pick this up in AZ! Amazing! Juicy, flavor-packed, citrus-filled brew. Bright, floral nose. Grapefruit is pungent. Orange peel, lemon zest, and tangerine rind all present. Surprising ABV...not at all distracting. Yum.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great beer, very sophisticated, complex -not difficult- and original, with the hop as the absolute main character. The first you feel is its voluptuous and fragrant aroma: fruity, with pineapple, lychees, maybe grapes and jelly baby touch, warm and full. Impressive, really. The head, froathy and white, is the perfect complement to its magnificent colour: beautiful golden with orangish glitters.In mouth, you can distinguish two phases (maybe itís the only drawback: the change is too abrupt): the first, very brife, is spicy, citric and slightly sweet; immediately the hop gets in and dominates the overall. Very bitter and longlasting flavour, refreshing and dry, with a peculiar texture between sticky and rough. Anyway, a very original, personal and interesting beer. Great.
