Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle in Nantes. Clear amber coloured with a HUGE white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, hops and citrus. Fruity flavour of caramel, hops and grass with notes of citrus. Hoppy finish. Too much carbonation, making it difficult to drink. The date was Ok, but we had to wait 15minutes before beiing able to drink it.. But impressed at the end. Y

Bottle 33cl, a clear copper-amber beer with medium head. Nose is on fresh hops and resin. Aroma is on caramel, hops bitterness, resin, honey, toasted malt, notes of grapefruit. Long bitter aftertaste, a very nice and properly done pale ale with lot of hops of course. There is 120 IBU there but very drinkable.

jesperhammer (2859) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2013
19-OCT-2013, bottle @Mortens. Amber with lasting, lacing tan head. Aroma is mainly oxidized stuff. Madeira, Nail polish remover. Definately sick. Taste the same. This is a Flemmish red!!! Not inteded but hey, it’s actually not too bad. Quite complex. Not an IPA but something equally interesting:-)

lord_totenkopf (310) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 24, 2012
Bottle at Brewberry, Paris. Dark amber colour, a bit hazy with white head. Aroma is bitter with herbs, hops and grapefruit. Taste is medium bitter, a bit bread-like and yeasty, the hops are getting weak as we come to the harsh finish. Not too amazing beer, but still a good one.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012
2012-09-05, bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris; bb Mar 2014, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Hazy light amber color with medium sized head. Some aroma of caramel, malt, and some perfumy hops, a bit of fruitiness from them. Caramel and malt flavor, some biscuit, with light residual sweetness, on the edge of the American crystal malt beers, but better, with some fruits from the hop, and apparently much less than the disclaimed 120 IBUs. It has some of the profile characteristics of a Double IPA, but not the strength.
Pleasant, but not as fresh as an IPA should be, not as bold as a true Double IPA (which is not).

2012-07-03, bottle at Hoppy Loft, Brussels, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Beautiful red-amber color; creamy head. Malt and cheese aroma. Some caramel flavor, the mouthfeel is quite round, but also kind of dry; it has strong bitterness, some piney resins and light cheese touch; there is a roasty note out of tune, and moderate sweetness later.
Good.

Très belle mousse épaisse et dense, belle couleur ambrée... Épices grille et citron, pour les arômes, goût qui reste en bouche assez longtemps, agréablement surpris.. Belle et bonne bière..
