3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 500ml can on 21/12/2015. Pours a light golden/yellow with a small head. The nose is sweet malt and tropical fruit. There’s lots of sweet tropical and stone fruit up front (apricot peach, mango and pineapple), with a pretty firm, somewhat tart, lemon and rapefruit bitterness countering. Caramel and biscuity malt sit in the background, with a very mild warm spiciness completing the picture. Almost light bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation. It’s certainly not without its charms, but for mine, it’s a bit too messy and rough to be considered top flight.

Poured from the pint can into an English pint glass. Golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is bready malt with an array of hops - citrus, resinous, and pine notes. Flavor is similar with predominantly citrusy hop notes. Medium bodied. Very drinkable for the ABV but a little one note.

Even the aroma is resinous as notes of pine, apricot, spices and something I’m calling tomato (!) rise from the glass. The resin combines with pine, spearmint and lychee upon tasting. The alcohol is not well hidden, leaving a very hot aftertaste in the mouth. PET bottle from Tru Bru.

(En fût au pub de la brasserie): Une mixture fruitée, herbacée et terreuse mais surtout très moelleuse. Amertume herbacée persistante.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from platinum liquor
Clear orange yellow color. Bright white head that falls to a thin collar. Just bits of spotty lacing.
Nose is tropical fruit, grapefruit and pine. Lots and lots of passion fruit. Slightly sweet nose.
Taste is more pine resin and grapefruit. Quit oily and aggressive but overdone. More balanced taste and feel than nose. Clean, dry body with lots of oil and bitterness. Much better at room temperature than cold. Solid IPA that borders on DIPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty good may get more lean after the big guns take over. Nice green pine hop aroma. Mildly malted, mild to medium hop bitterness, finished pretty hoppy bitter.
