A very well balanced IPA. Slightly sweet malty flavor mixes with a nice light hoppy citrus flavor. Another wonderful brew by the DFH guys!

Zacht van smaak, lichte tinteling en bitter. Merk niet dat het een biertje van 9% is..

Just had the Swedish fish infusion version. Really smooths out the hops. Adds a sweet flavor and that touch of strawberry licorice. Tap

bunget (671) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Sampler at Mondial de la Biere in Montreal. Hazy golden body, medium white head. Faint aroma of peaches, oranges and caramel. Taste of grapefruit zest, orange candies, peach. Too sweet for my taste.

i love the balance of this beer. The flavor is strong and the finish is smooth. All hop-heads need not apply as this is a great balanced beer with no hint of the 9% alcohol it delivers. Reminds me of Nugget Nector and a tiny bit of Hopslam.

77ships (5299) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2015
355 ml. bottle @ home. Obtained in a trade with LouS. Thanks! Bottled on 04/08/15. Touch darker caramel amber, a handful of small stream of rising bubbles, off-white, small solid head. Nose is oddly malt, plenty of biscuit malts, some caramel, mellow candied fruit, cake, light maple, totally different from what I expected. Taste is herbal bitter, bitter tea, faint cough syrup bitter mixed with biscuit, faint maple & rum cake, raisin, light pine, bitter herbal & light plant, tea leaves taste, light rum-like booziness, quite heavily malty, herbal, faint ginseng,… Malty, lightly chewy & heavily biscuit body. Totally different from expected. Quite British in a way. Quite herbal, biscuit & rum cake like. A bit odd & rather unusual for the style. I can see this being quite the divisive brew despite the excellent score on RB. Interesting beer.

Copper color ;medium-sized off-white head. Marmalade and caramel aroma, some spicy straw hops and booze present in the smell as well. Taste is sweet candied oranges and caramel followed by barley spice and straw.

lesifflebiere (1457) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Jaune orange foncée, avec une bonne couche de mousse blanche ; carbonatation faible, texture mi-mince. Nez de malts caramel, de sucre cuit et d’ananas. En bouche, les saveurs sont impressionnantes, les houblons dominent joliment, sans amertume âcre. Les malts forment un lit solide qui soutient la plante verte de façin admirable, sans prendre toute la place mais en s’affirmant fermement. Délicieuse.
