4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2012 Another outstanding effort from an always exciting brewery. Reminds me a lot of DFH 90, although maybe the hops are a tiny bit more muted than that one. Still, great hop-forward beer with a level of malt balance that makes this an outstanding beer. Bravo!
Jul 2012 update:
Pours orange with thin white head medium lacing. Not as sweet as I seemed notice last year, certainly not as much as dfh 90. Beauty balance on this one,ots of grapefruit with a light candy backing. Awesome beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 341mL. Home. Spectrum from orange to brown on the top. Clear sparkling beer with a small white-off head. Nice lacing. Fruity and floral aroma (red berries, blackcurrant), herbs, caramel, alcohol. Taste oscillate between bitterness and sweetness at a high frequency. "Swing taste". Body... in movement. Oily texture. Good carbonation. Bitter finish with alcohol note. Overvall, I loved this beer : a fruit-basket with a lot of energy !

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows rich sweet malt with a little piny and resinous hops too. Some bready malt and golden syrup.
Similarly sweet flavours, loads of malt. Some booze and mild hops attempt to balance it out. A bit one-dimensional.
Could use more carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at worldbeertaste’s temporary leaving The Hague tasting. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a very thin white head. The aroma is hoppy glue, resin. The flavour is strong bitter with a light fruit resin smooth alcoholic woody palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. A super flavour packed beer with well controlled alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille 341 ml de Hyperboissons - Doubs (F). Bière cuivrée voilée, mousse blanche formant des dentelles. Nez d’agrume, caramel, floral, compoté. La bouche est douce, veloutée mais corsée, maltée costaud avec de l’orange-mandarine, abricot, zeste et poivre rose. La parfum houblonné est mesuré, résineux, agrumeux et confituré. Excellente Imperial Pale Ale et non pas IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Understated nose featuring slightly roasted sweet malt and a hint of caramel. A nice orangey brown hue. The taste is very malt forward with hints of caramel, soft hops and some alcohol warmth. Moderate carbonation leads to a soft rich taste that is well balanced. Nevertheless, this is no hop bomb. The rich sweet yet dark malts are the highlight of this very drinkable strong ale.
