3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from l’Autre Oeil. Pours amber, somewhat hazy. Weird pour -- it was supposed to form basically no head, but it wasn’t the case, and I ended up with a think creme head. Carbonation seemed weird as well -- really tiny, sticking to the side of the glass. Anyways... Aroma is completely off for the style : while there was some caramel coming from the malts, the dominant aroma was really in the peaches/aroma territory, with no citrus at all and some hints of resin and tea. Closer to Lambic’s territory -- it WAS good, just completely off. Taste is much more in the DIPA territory -- subdued caramel and non-metallic honey notes with the hops taking a good part of the taste. Finale is dry, but without being abrupt, and quite long. Really long. A bit lacking in hop kick, but a pretty serviceable DIPA.

Bottle from Craft Wine Store 191114. Deep honey amber colour with a slight head and a powerful aroma of mostly hops. Full in the mouth, this beer delivers.

7.5%. Hmmm... Anyway, lighter on the hops and heavier on the malt than I’d prefer, but there’s a nice interplay between the fruity hops and semi sweet malt. Many iipas I like better, but this was nice. Thanks Thomas."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a nonic half pint glass. Typical sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a a nice, creamy, forever lasting white head. Great lacing. Not the cleanest aroma, a hint of dust and yeast, obviously together with a nice bouquet of citrus, tropical fruits, a hint of pine resin and caramel malts. Quite harsh upfront, not because of the bitterness, which is actually kinda moderate, but because of a boozy and warming sensation. Light astringency, solid malt backbone (more biscuit than caramel), slightly sticky, pleasent fruity aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly creamy texture. I had 10+% beers where the alchool was more hidden, so that’s probably the biggest fault in this beer, imho. So so.
