4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber, white quickly disappearing head, kinda citrus hoppy, little earthy veggie something on the nose too, but very faint. Very nice mouthfeel, hint of soapiness. Alcohol very well hidden, a little too easy to drink. Definitely would buy again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 12 fl. oz. ours copper-amber with medium head. Interesting aroma featuring malt, pine, hops, fruits and alcohol. Taste is heavy on alcohol and sugar, too much for my taste. Balance is therefore lacking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thick slightly off-white head. Aromas of grassy hops, slight caramel malt. Some citrus and orange peel. It’s not that strong. Sadly I didn’t drink this fresh. Taste is quite the same. Bit alcoholic. More caramel.

Pours a dark orange, nice and clear, with thick foamy white head. Hop aroma, with the high abv coming through on the nose too. Taste is quite balanced, not giving the bitter finish that I was expecting. Saving some to mix with some yan later on.

Weak aroma. Maybe no so fresh? The taste is much better. Several dufferent tropical fruits. Dry and not so bitter finish without being sweet or cloying. Except for the aroma, great beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: clear amber beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: malty and hoppy domination with caramel notes and some alcohol presence and a little bit spicy. Taste: really sweet and good balance of malt. Caramel and sugar canoe domination. Aftertaste: alcohol taste with a wet sensation. High bitterness. No really subtile taste domination of bitterness and alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: clear amber pour, near white head of creamy bubbles, with average lacing. Aroma: juicy with fruit (apricot, mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, mandarin orange), solid malt backbone (graham crackers with honey), light resin. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: bitter and slightly dry, but with a light toasty malt undertone to balance out the lingering fruity hops. Notes: As a standalone IPA it’s quite good. The alcohol is deceptively concealed. Mixed with what I found to be a very disappointing ’Yin’ resulted in a black double IPA that was actually better than the sum of its parts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (12 oz). Hazy copper/amber with a small mostly lasting off-white head and little lacing. Aroma is of sweetness, piney hops, some spiciness, caramel, alcohol and light fruitiness. Taste is moderately sweet and quite boozy with spices, caramel, piney hops and light fruitiness. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Warming finish. Sticky resinous aftertaste. Not horrible, but another way too boozy and to sweet Imperial IPA that lack balance and isn’t easily drinkable by any mean.
