2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Sweet hop tang on the nose when first opened. Poured a very effervescent yellow gold with quite a bit of carbonation. 3 inches of foam took about five minutes to subside. Very burnt straw in the first sip subsiding to an earthy grassiness that is offputting in the finish. Overly carbonated for the style. Strange mixture of flavours that ends a tad too funky for me.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle). Hoppy aroma, without much fruitiness. Orange amber color with gigantic fluffy white head. Flavor is tart, musty, bitter, and distinctly unpleasant, with little of the usual IPA citrus appealing character.

En fût à la Barberie. La bière se présente avec une robe cuivrée et une mousse modeste qui reste . Au nez on découvre des arômes d’huile de houblon et de caramel. En bouche le corps est mince-moyen et les flaveurs sont le houblon floral et le caramel.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Great big light and fluffy head of varying sized bubbles. Light orange aroma with some floral hops, dry grassy malts and a bit of spice. Color is a dark golden orange. Very fizzy in the mouth. Light and fruity flavor with a clean palate. Some bitter hops presence but not overwelming. Dry and bitter finish with some grapefruit rind and some herbal notes. An ok IPA but way too carbonated.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
.5 liter bottle- started gushing a bit after opening. Pours a very light gold- relatively clear with a slight haze- massive infectious head -cobwebby looking. Aroma is phenolic, wierrd dirty infection, but not typical brett, with some hay and grass- almsot no hop character. Flavor is pretty lifeless and bland- light stale cracker and dough, with earth, dirt, cobwebs, and a vegetal character- has a lemony tangy bitterness in the end.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The bottle foamed out a little. Lightly hazed with small chunks. Gold with a large off-white head. The aroma is light with a mild citrus and touch of malt. Citrusy flavor with a long dry bitterness. The body is light and the mouthfeel is too lively and carbonated.
