L’arôme est vraiment pas excitante, butterscotch et orange très mures. En bouche c’est fidel au nez avec une amertume tranquille.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lol good marketeing. Pours a golden amber with a big white head. Smell is caramel malt, piney hops, but not big and bold. Flavor is okay. It is boozy and alcoholic with a medium hop bitterness that is piney and citrus rindy. The up front flavor is grapefruit and caramel. Bit too much caramel malt in this one but not terrible.

From bottle. Pours a deep golden/amber color with a slight haze and little head. Aroma was mild and was citrus hops and sweet malt. Taste followed with a warm booze ending. Needs more hop nose upfront.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2013 Bottle @ home, courtesy of markwise (I think). Pours a clear burnt orange appearance with a big, cream colored head. Somewhat oxidized, papery, mild caramel, dull herbal aroma. Slightly metallic, cardboard, toasted malty, floral hoppy, boozy flavor. Pass.

Not what I expected from a 10% ipa. Could not get past the aroma, which ruined the whole experience for me

12oz bottle pour, looks great in the glass. Light aroma for a 10%. Initial taste was some what malty but opened up a bit after sitting in the glass for awhile. Palate takes awhile to find the hops but doesn't last. A nice attempt at a dipa from fla.

Pours Golden with a small thin layer of head. Smell: Hoppy and floral very nice. Tastes sharp with some bitter notes with underlying hops and spice. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. There’s just something about the balance between the bitterness and the hops that I like. A slightly different take on IPAs, and not a bad one at all.

Potent hoppy aroma, poured a nice dark amber color with a thick off white head. This brew is very full bodied and smooth. Nice citrus and honey mixed with the bitter hops. Very well balanced and enjoyable IPA. I am pleasantly surprised
