BiereLuc (1145) - Montréal, Quebec, - MAR 3, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Belle robe orangée avec un col de mousse stable et fier. Nez de fraîcheur, d’agrumes... mais aussi de souffre. Heureusement, c’est en bouche que la magie opère : pamplemousse, orange, fruits tropicaux... avec le sucre et l’alcool qui s’épousent en final. Entendu lors de la dégustation : «ça goûte André Trudel...». Moi j’ai trouvé que ça en disant long sur cette bière.

(nouvelle dégustation en bouteille - janvier 2015) - Bière orangée, trouble et aguichante (enfin un mot que je n’avais pas encore utilisé. J’ai tellement l’impression de toujours écrire les mêmes trucs...). Le nez est principalement fruité, avec quelques notes d’alcool en périphérie. En bouche, une amertume franche s’étale sur un lit de fruits avec un léger sucre en finale. L’arrière-goût nous ramène l’amertume pour quelques secondes encore. Le produit est franchement bien équilibré. L’alcool est toujours de la parti, parfois trop présent (seul bémol), mais l’ensemble demeure une sacrée réussite.

MrHangover (3236) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle @ THT July, courtesy of Zer0. Pours a murky orange beer with a big white head on top. Aroma of strange tropical fruits, light peppery notes, peaches. Flavor is funny, light bitter and overall a bit strange. Really fresh probably.

Tap. Copper orange pour, medium head that doesn’t last. Heavy tropical fruit aroma, caramel. Taste is fruity again, pineapple, caramel leading into a resin hop finish. Moderate to strong bitter finish.

ciocanelu (142) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 27, 2015
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.

Listigovers (511) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
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!

reebtogi (4819) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
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.

Tasted from the bottle on the 14/06/2015. Hazy amber colour with medium off-white head and good lace. Aroma is fruity, caramel, spice and citric hops. Taste is modest tropical fruit, toffee, spice and resinous/citrusy hops. Fine carbonation and body. Next one please!

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