3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille de 341 ml. Dégustée le 1er février 2009. Bière rousse tirant sur le brun. Mousse assez lorsque versée, col moyen, persistant. Peu effervescente. Odeur fruitée (berries) prononcée. Assez forte, assez sucrée, très amère en finale. Saveur assez corsée, un peu fruitée. A assez de corps, bien consistante. Peut-être un peu trop houblonnée pour la saveur, aurait pu être moins sucrée, mieux équilibrée.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Discount in Waukesha, that likely was the same one I’d eyed 6-8 months ago. Pours a brownish orange with some carbonation and an off-white head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has sweet fruits, caramelly malts and some citrus. A bit of dead hoppiness. Taste is of sweet fruits, sweet caramel, some touches of sourness, biscuity malts, some earthiness and faint bitter grapefruit. Certainly attempting toward the classic "english" IPA. Medium bodied. Finishes mostly sweet, with some sourness & bitterness, and some length. Shrug, not great overall with components that were not well blended (due to age??). Only mildly a fan of the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a cloudy brown-orange with virtually no head. The little that develops is off-white. Aroma is a deep, sweet malt smell with prunes and a little pine. Taste is very sweet with prunes, tea leaves, flower petals. Bitterness is mostly flowery with a touch of pine. The sweetness is almost cloying and doesn't work well with the bitterness. Full, slick mouthfeel that ends with a puckering quality.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from my mate Paul. Caramel, hops, herbs, tropical fruit. Medium sweet, with a long echoing bitter aftertaste that travels until deep into your throath, stays there, and makes a little dance. Nice enough IPA.
