2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The bottle exploded a little on me. Not sure what happened. Either way, it pours cloudy orange, with a white head. Smells of light hops, light malts, and light yeast. Very light smell. Tastes of a little of hops, malts, and yeast as well. Well balanced. Carbonation is medium and mild bitter on the tongue.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
21/05/2013 Mad For Beer (tap). Ambrata pallida, leggermente torbida, schiuma bianca discreta, abbastanza persistente. Naso molto ricco, sentori di malto, bel luppolato, con note erbacee, agrumate e di frutta esotica. In bocca delude, ha una base di malto consistente, una coda luppolata amara, con netta astringenza. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione media. La base c’è, andrebbe rifinita.

Hazy orange and glowing body with frothy grey head. Very modern smell with sweet hops, refined malts but rich bitter appeal. Full carbonation but very pleasant. Bit sticky aftertaste. Very nice drinkable and flavourful Ipa. Nice! (On tap at A l’Express de Lyon)

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012
2012-11-20, draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Light amber color, clean, creamy head. Nice elegant aroma, biscuity caramel and hops. Dry mouthfeel, highly carbonated, with a nice flavor of caramel, biscuity touch, good hopping level but without much aromatic components. Solid choice.
2012-10-03, bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris, 7-4-6-3-13=33
Hazy golden color, with compact head. Nice aroma, fruity hops, tropical, apricots, and some dry malt. Lean and very dry mouthfeel; mild malt flavor, with strong bitterness (pungent and to the limit of being excessive), and a bit too much yeast; yeast and harsh hop together disturb a bit the final.
Good but unbalanced.

Draft @ Brassigaume 2012. Hazy golden with a creamy white head. Nicely hoppy nose, touch of Belgian yeast and berries. Belgian yeasty taste, light hops, white bread, light pale malts, touch white grape, some resin, oranges and grass. Lightly hazy body. A California Common it seems.
