Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 23, 2012
Sehr trocken hopfiger Beginn, ausgewogen. Spritzig, dunkle Grasigkeit. Bitterer im Mittelteil mit gelungener Malzigkeit. Spritzig, gutes Verhältnis von hopfigen, herben und malzigen Noten, in dem die Trockenheit gut passt. 9/12/13/11//12

vipinvelp (2083) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2012
Darker unfiltered yellow with solid white foam head sticking lacing to glass. Decent bitter hop aroma and even more decent bitter taste. Lasting aftertaste, a good IPA. (Velp 201207)

2012-11-06, draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 8-5-7-3-14=37
Hazy amber color, generous rocky head. Wonderful hop aroma, fresh, resiny, with plenty of citrusy fruits, cedar. Lean and dry mouthfeel; quite good dry toffee flavor, and powerful hopping, very resiny, also quite fruity. It has some forgivable flaw: some residual yeast character, and a bit too much (harsh) bitterness in the end; but it’s still a good hit for hopheads.

2012-09-05, bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris; bb Jan 2014, 7-3-6-2-11=29
The bottle is full almost up till the cap. Hazy light amber color, with small head. Nice aroma of hops and caramel, sweet, that reminds me of some de Proef beer for Mikkeller. The mouthfeel is quite flat, and there is a note out of tune, some light sourness; the bitterness is fading, and so any noble hop quality. Therefore there is also some metallic touch in the end.
Probably not well stored, or too old; it seems off.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 8, 2012
Golden light hazy and off white lace. Very floral, grassy hops, light malts and spruce. Strong bitterness. Mouth filling, active carbonation. Suits me very well. Tasty! (On tap at La Fine Mousse)

15 cl. draft // Fleurac tasting @ Delirium Hoppy Loft: (a) hazy amber with a lambic head // (s) bitter tangerine & orange peel / american hops // (t) bitter, watery orange & tangerine peel upfront, straw, long bitter, lasting, very grassy finish, not american all, lasting bitter, grassy, hints pine resin & bitter marmalade // (b) cork dry & quite watery, oily, low carb. // lasting grass bitterness doesn’t really do it for me & the oily & watery body, still not bad

jesperhammer (2843) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2012
16-JUN-2012, draft @Un Mare di Birra. Clear, light golden with low off-white head. Hoppy, very herbal, soapy, and earthy. Taste even more soapy. Fruity, malty. A bit low on carbonation. Bitter finish. Perhaps more like a pale ale.

poech73 (152) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2014
Bière blonde de type IPA [BBF 05/2014] tout-à-fait honnête qui offre un bouquet très fleuri et fruité, un malt biscuité, de la levure. En bouche, c’est un corps très moelleux qui offre au palais des saveurs rondes et citronnées se terminant sur des notes surettes moyennement astringentes accompagnées de cette levure fruitée, ce malt biscuité. La palais est sec la langue rêche et les papilles en finale sont titillées sur notes minérales et moyennement astringentes sur une belle longueur. Sur la fin , je reste avec avec goût de levure farineuse. Bonne dégustation à cause de la garde longue (la dernière du magasin!) Du déjà vu malgré l’IBU élevé.
