3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Hazy, dark copper colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Citrusy, fruity hop aroma with a mineral touch, hints of blood orange, grapefruit, mandarine. Taste is almost more sourish than bitter hoppy, fruity hints of blood orange, grapefruit, mandarine, kumquat, caramel malty basis with some biscuit; slightly too lively carbonation that is somehow typical for Dutch IPAs. Not sooo bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, dated 02/09/13, large sample. Almost clear amber color, short lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma is quite hoppy of citrus, grapefruit, pine, hint of lychee, hint of biscuity malt. Quite thick body. Medium bitter in taste, quite fruity bitterness. It has some biscuity sweetness, but that feeling is increased by the citrussy bitterness from the hops. Bit sticky finish though, showing some residual sugars. I quite like it, but that’s not surprising considering the citra, simcoe and cascade. :-)

A hazed reddish dipa with a thin off white head. In aroma, smooth floral hops over biscuit malt, resinous hops with light tropical fruits, very nice. In mouth, rather smooth exemple of the style with floral resinous hops , biscuit malt, citrus pulp, alcohol warmth, smooth and delectable. On tap at La Fine Mousse in Paris.
