3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle. Off-amber color with solid white head; some lacing. Aroma a bit more subtle than expected with grassy, piney hops. Some malt, but hops take over quickly with citrus and floral taste fading to piney hops.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a cloudy, golden amber with a compact, off-white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit and grass with a hint of bread. The taste is citrus all the way balanced nicely by a slight malt note, this leads to a long but not overpowering bitterness.

Serving type: Bottle
A: a very gorgeous hazy amber. One finger head, with small head retention.
S: lots of citrus and floral notes. I get a littles pine as well. Well balanced malt as well.
T: strong hop flavor hear that lingers afterwards. Again, a lot of citrus and resiny pine flavors.
O: after reading and hearing a lot about this beer, I find myself in agreement with the hype! Great beer, and I will definitely buy this beer again!

Hazy brown colour, small white head. Hoppy aroma but it is very faint. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Taste is soft with mild bitterness. Basic ipa.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Embrouille, thanks! A caramelly malty base easily shines through in the nose, it fails to deliver in the taste however. It is a full bodied beer with creamy carbonation, it has an interesting anise note in the finish, yet the overexcessive bitterness weighs the maltiness down, which results in a lack of balance. The hop aroma is pleasant, with notes of resin, citrus and mango, but I feel this beer is way over the top.

Bottle at home, bought in Orlando. 28th November 13. Nice aroma, not mind blowing, taste is very pleasant, not the most memorable in character, but very good and so drinkable. This drinks so very easily for its ABV, I could session this.

Buona birra, con sentori di cereali, malto e grano ed un amaro mastodontico che fanno bene al palato. bello anche l’aspetto. Buona birra, decisamente

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent IPA but I have certainly had better ones than this. You can smell and taste the hops but honestly everything in this seemed a bit muted. Not the best and not the worst. I am sure I will give it another chance some day.

Le nez est très fermé, la bière a dû souffrir un peu du transport malheureusement ou brassée depuis trop longtemps. La bouche est mieux, maltée, avec des notes d’agrumes (orange confite), pas très exotique. Quelques notes épicées, et un peu d’amandes sur la fin de bouche. Carbonatation faible. Un peu déçu par cette bière dont j’attendais plus. A regoûter.
