3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with northropfrye. It’s the colour of sunshine with a light meringue-y head. It has the most intense bitter grapefruit taste I’ve yet experienced in an IPA. It’s bracing and would be great for a hut sunny patio.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from La Fromagerie Atwater. A big glowing copper pour with a thick off-white head of foam. Quite a huge aroma, pine, nutty, pine needles, fresh, peach, apricots - juicy. It is medium-full bodied with a roundish carbonation that is just a bit rough. A well balanced flavor profile bitter, biscuit, pine then mellowing into fruitiness that matches the aroma. A really pleasant finish + aftertaste. A wonderfully satisfying IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy golden-straw with a large off-white head that remains and laces well. The nose has big citrus, pine and grapefruit, along with pale malts and a touch of tropical fruit. The flavour is fairly sweet with huge lemon, grapefruit peel and tropical fruit. There is a slightly spicy, herbal hop quality that builds through the middle and lingers into the finish, which is medium long and moderately bitter. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a slightly dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a nice light IPA with a refreshing citrus character. 2014-08-16

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a brighter hazy yellow with quite a bit of head, creamy like and medium retention. Aroma is exotic fruits, some sweetness, but mainly citrus and hops. Taste is a bit dryer with some bitterness attached, and quite a bit of citrus and hops. Aftertaste is soft and grassy finish. A well balanced, unobtrusive, drinkable IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Apparence jaune tirant sur le doré. Odeur de résine, de fruits tropicaux et d'agrumes. Goût prononce de houblons, franchement rafraîchissant. Finale de gazon vert et d'agrumes. Wow, j'adore a toute les fois

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy light orange with fading white head. Strong citrus smell, mainly grapefruit with resin/herbs hops and some cereal to balance it. Taste is very bitter, not much of sweetness. Medium body with a lively carbonation, long dry, bitter finish. A great one from this brewery.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really well made IPA. Pale golden colour with nice white head. Medium bodied, good pleasant carbonation, lasting bitterness. Something to really keep enjoying one after another. Only thing is that the aroma fades away quickly, starts out tropical, but quickly turns into a good clean yeast character with some honey in the back.
