3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber bodied and fairly clear, frothy head. Spicy, Szechuan pepper, clove, amber malts, stale bread. Medium bitter, lots of Belgian yeast and again some spice. Sorry, but this is nothing like ipa. Not terribly bad of course, but thin pretends to be something that is greatly fails to be. I’m normally happy to ignore a proclaimed style, but part of the reason this beer exists is to jump in the ipa hype and by that it could educate the French. Considering that, it’s a big fail. (On tap at Berthom Tours)

Très bonne IPA, style belge. Gout fleural et résineux (un peu comme la Duvel IPA). Amertume longue en bouche sur la fin. Très belle robe.

On tap at La Capsule, Lille, 23rd June. As I restoring my maks quite late I have not much to say - to be honest except general rating 9/10 I have nothing in my rematks, which means that is typical IPA, but with rich palette and nice appearance, and I definetely would like more
