Bottle 0.33l at home. ABV 10.0%. No BBE visible, 2-3 years old. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, sweetness, some hops and malts. Probably very different beer as fresh. Not very enjoyable anymore.

Bouteille de 750 ml, avec bouchon en plastique, obtenue via Importations Privées Bièropholie. Arôme: Odeur d’agrumes et de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’orange avec une pointe de caramel et d’alcool. Longue durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement vineuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’orange en arrière goût. (Rating #4775)

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
In short: A lifeless, tired, dank, sweet fruity amber ale. Very lame.
How: Bottle 750ml plastic corked & caged. Consumed a few weeks after receiving it through private importation (but not sure about freshness).
The look: Cloudy dark amber body topped by a short-lived medium beige head.
In long: Nose is dank hops, baked fruits, moldy bread, sushi roll green algae thingy. Taste is the opposite of a fresh and bright beer, everything here feels damp, moldy, tired. Baked fruits, berries jam, moldy bread, caramel, pie crust, cheap cheese, juicy sweetness sensation, wet old cookies, awkward spiciness. Body is lifeless with a thick oily juicy mouthfeel and sparse but hard bubbles. To my north-american palette this sure didn’t feel like a Double IPA. Pretty much the only thing positive I can say about this beer is that there is almost no alcohol presence. Pretty much everything else is a train wreck. Not only was this beer very lame but also rather expensive, and sometimes I am so mad at a brewery for selling me an overpriced shitty product that I roll up my sleeves, walked up to my computer and anonymously enter a bad review on a meaningless web-site, that’s how men settle their differences nowadays.

ElDesmadre (1553) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is citrus, orange, grapefruit, floral, unripe melon, citrus zest and some pine. Thick and oily mouthfeel from both malt and hops, body medium to medium-high. Nicely hidden alcohol though it has a warming effect on the throat. Very bitter, orange zesty finish. Because of its accented hop profile and liqueur-like mouthfeel, it could be summed up as hop syrup. Very nice hop syrup.

lefossoyeur (453) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
Dark copper with no head. Totally flat. Cheesy aromas, no carbonation, slightly acidic, some oxydized malts in the finale. No hops. Awful example!

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with light fruity ester and solid caramel malt notes. Taste is a mix between some citrus hops with some solid caramel malt with light sweet toffee notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad though maybe a tad too sweet for my taste and lacking a bit of an hops punch.
