LeFaune (16) - ST MANDE, FRANCE - DEC 19, 2014
Very unusual heavy feeling on the tongue with this strong IPA. The aroma is a trick: fruity, light, unsuspicious. Then it’s very oily with smoky and woody tastes - leather aftertones. A bit too much sometimes but the name should tell it’s not for everyone, it’s a "heavy metal" double IPA! Great color and opacity. Stays well on the tongue.

Little opaque orange, large off-white lacing foam head. Nice bitter aroma, small citrus notes. Good bitter taste, again some fruity tones. Good beer. (Velp 201412)

Petite IPA bien aromatique. Texture huileuse, notes résineuses et de caramel, un peu sucrée, légèrement épicée et fumée. La teneur en alcool donne une bonne longueur en bouche bien aromatique. Ce n’est pas ma bière préférée mais elle se laisse bien déguster...

Bière ambrée trouble avec un col de mousse beige crémeux laissant une dentelle sur le verre. Arome de pin et de caramel (bonbon pin des vosges). Le houblon américain est très présent avec une attaque très amère puis le goût de résine. Corps moyen. L’équilibre n’est pas parfait. A noter que cette bière est plus ou moins réussi selon les cuvées, j’en ai bu de meilleures ...

Pours orange amber with a medium white foam head. Piny and citrusy aromas melted in a well balanced harmonious malty mouth. Powerfull bitterness surfs on a malty backbone and finishes on tropical hop and dried apricot notes. Beautiful IIPA brewed by a French Brewery Dudes! I am proud to say that an organic double American IPA is available in France! CHeers!

Une bière ambrée et trouble. Une belle odeur resineuse et caramelise. Une mousse qui laisse une dentelle le long du verre. En bouche une amertume bien présente et un palais résineux.

Bottle sample. Murky amber, decent beige head. Aroma of old hops, sweet sugar and caramel. Harsh bitter finish, some dusty flavors, and faint medicinal notes. Full body, feels off, too yeasty and so so.

Deu (723) - Nantes, FRANCE - SEP 23, 2013
On tap at "La fine mousse" in Paris. Murky dark orange-amber. Aroma of stale hops with a bit of floral notes and biscuity malt. Flavor of biscuity and caramelly malt and stale hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice. N

Bottle from La Fine Mousse. Cloudy glowing copper, limestone head. Citrussy nose, hints of chocolate. Citrus all the way, but with an interesting spicy malts backdrop. Dark fruits too. Enjoyable.
