Has a nice color and a huge creamy head. Very nice hop profile, fresh with some tropical fruit. The only big problem with this beer is the overwhelming alcohol.

Rich garden aroma, flowers and c vegetables. Pale gold with lacing head. Medium to full bodied, slight heat, tons of hop resin balanced by a rich malt base, hints of caramel, bitter, oily. Packs a real punch! Tasty!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
600ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light exotic fruits with some grapefruit and caramel. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a grapefruit hop bitterness. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation. Overall, this is a truly enjoyable DIPA that is very welcoming to the palate, effervescent and tasty, with a nice balance.

Très forte et très goûteuse. En fin de soirée mais prendra sans doute toute la bouteille a apprivoiser

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is Metamucil orange with a medium, long-lasting white cap that leaves nice lace. Nose is a tropical fruit BOMB, to the point that I had to check the label to see if they’d added Five-Alive to this brew. At first I get almost pure pineapple juice, but as it warms I find mango, orange, peach (or apricot), along with some sugary malt. Taste is a sweet malt with all the fruity notes above. Slightly bitter finish with a dry, boozy aspect that seems slightly out of place. Somehow the alcohol seems both well-masked and slightly sharp, almost like I’m drinking this beer as a whiskey chaser. Still there’s so much good stuff going on here, I feel like this beer is baby steps away from being absolutely epic. (However given some of the reviews below I wonder if I simply lucked out.)

Odeur d’oignon , de viande et de pet! Arômes de houblons très faible. La fermentation est mal gérée.

Foncé, sauvage, gouteuse, superbe double ipa. Pour la force qu’elle dégage et le goût en bouche, si elle est disponible elle risque d’être dans mon verre!!

Bottle 60cl, a cloudy copper orange beer with good head but low retention. Nose is on lemon and orange peel. Aroma is intense on orange peel, pine, grapefruit, very very sweet, melon touch, fresh pineapple fruit juice, first time I had this such distinctly, yeast, malty finish. Not that bitter and too sweet.
