3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2013 Smells coriander-celery perhaps(not particularly tense), felt as drinking mineral water with a citrus and bitter taste. Thinking about what it felt was secondary because of the light palate. Yes there were different "things" going on, but the background was light salty mineral taste.
Also at temp. 5 C, however I did not try to pour, there was virtually zero top from freshly opened bottle.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange beer with smallish head and nice lacing. Aroma has citrus, pines, anise and grapefruits. Taste is quite spicy, there is anise and pines. Leaves your tongue dry and there is medium bitterness. Body is medium and small-to-medium carbonation. Expected something more.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, gusher, hazy copper pour with a huge chunky beige head that has too much retention. Aroma is caramel, toast, turbinado sugar, tea, earthy, citrus, herbal, fruity and spicy hops. Flavor is caramel, brown sugar, toast, light pie spice, old hay, tart grain, green tea and sharp citrus, earthy, herbal and woody hops. medium body, lightly syrupy entry blown out by explosive carbonation that quickly calms down leaving a juicy, syrupy finish. Good stuff overall, but there is definitely something wrong here, doesn’t seem like infection. Early bottling/over priming? Pretty tasty other than the carbonation issues crashing the party.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bière blonde orangée avec un haut col de mousse légèrement dorée et laissant une dentelle sur le verre. Nez très fruité sur le kiwi, le raisin, le fruit de la passion. En bouche, attaque moyennemen amère laissant rapidement la place aux fruits. Malheureusement peu de longueur en bouche, obligeant à replonger rapidement les lèvres dans le verre. Corps moyen, bonne carbonation.

At the tap. Nose is not soo open but in accordance with IPA style. The taste is dominated with very strong bitterness wich is finally too much and hiding the exotic fruits of typicall IPA...
