Quite drinkable. But nothing memorable. Aromas of oranges, grapegruits. Bottled.

Brown bottle, 500 ml, bottled on 08 02; eye: golden, clear, light effervescence, white head made up of large bubbles and that falls rapidly, lacing; nose: one of my girlfriend’s beauty products, stale; mouth: probably one of mygirlfriend’s beauty product, stale: overall: cannot really rate this, have to try an other one
Bouteille brune, 500 ml, meilleure avant 08 02; oeil : dorée, claire, légère effervescence, mousse blanche formée de grosses bulles et qui tombe assez rapidement, dentelle; nez : un des produits de beauté de ma blonde, éventée; bouche : probablement un des produits de beauté de ma blonde, éventée; en résumé : en essayer une autre, celle-là ne peut pas vraiment être notée

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[078-20061027] 500mL. Smells like plastic pizza. Clear, brown body with lots of big bubbles rising through the centre and a big lasting foamy off-white head. Taste is of hoppy grains, medium alcohol, lightly ascerbic -- unfortunately, burping tastes like plastic. Medium bodied, bit of a kick. Not really into the plastic kick. (The upright half-filled bottle kept erupting foam up to ten minutes later, just sitting there! ha ha)

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. The beer poured a hazy copper with a massive frothy head. Aroma is hoppy, with malt and caramel, nothing special. Taste is acid and bitter, not much aroma from the hops, this bitterness isn’t very interesting and dominate the rest of the taste. Medium body. Definitely not a good IPA, I wouldn’t try it again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Poured a deep copper color beer with a huge foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma of metallic hops is quite dominant with a small base of caramel malt. Taste of weird hops; dry metallic with a slightly sour finish – and light caramel malt doesn’t really do anything to me. There is quite a lot of sediment at the bottom and body is a bit watery for the style. Another so-so effort from this brewery.

Very nice poor... large lasting creamy frothy head... Nice tangy orangy aromas to it... fresh herbs, spicyness... Somewhat hoppy/ bitter finish... very balanced IPA... not the best but very commendable!

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This tasted quite wrong. The bitterness and acidity reminded one of vomit. Has the hallmarks of a passable, IPA, but I can’t say I enjoyed this beer very much.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 Cloudy copper with a large long-lasting creamy off-white head. Looks good. Unusual (for an IPA) spicy aroma. Anyhow it does smell good. I should have stopped there and just look at it and smell it. Taste is weird, very weird. I can only describe as a fake fruity taste. Kind of mixing an orange artificial flavoured energy drink with a red artificial flavoured energy drink and adding some spices and carbonation. There’s also a strange bitterness with some hops flavours. This thing barely feels like a beer. The funniest thing, it’s not that bad. Actually it’s rather tasty despite its watery body. Different. Maybe I was drinking the new Gatorade Xtreme Hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
utility IPA, quite drinkable. Brown body, significant and noisy head, some grapefruit in aroma , drying finish.Some malt offset. Grapefruit and astringency in the flavours,. Grassy hop,but a good amount of it- a pint is too much and had to be shared.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy & tupalev - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Golden amber with a large white head. Mild, grainy aroma with some pleasant herbal hops. Flavour is pleasant as well - mellow to start, but the hops start to come through in the finish, along with some mild citrus notes. Subtle - perhaps too subtle for the style - but nice enough.
