3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very bitter beer, with a crispy taste of floral, grassy hops. Body is just good, lets the hops stand out. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Très résineux mais peu juteux. Beaucoup d’ammoniac, de chlorophyle et d’amertume mais passez d’aromatique. Buvabilité quand même évidente.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can (12 oz). Hazy glowing oolden with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is piney with a decent amount of citrus (mostly grapefruits) along floral hops and malt/caramel notes. Taste is slightly sweet with caramel/malt, grapefruits, moderate bitterness, light alcohol and resinous presence. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Moderately dry finish. That’s a more than decent IPA. Better than average, but not good/special enough to be among the best. Little lack of balance, but it’s doesn’t hinder drinkability. Good.
