Au commencement, tout nous semble paisible : se présente à nous une rousse au col blanc tenace, à l’apparence plutôt commune. Mais déjà, à l’approche du nez nous vient le pressentiment que la chute sera violente. En bouche, on se laisse d’abord berner par un léger sucre caramélisé rapidement envahi par une contre-attaque vive et rapide de houblon. Une amertume verte et intense nous envahit de toute part tandis que le petit goût de sucre caramélisé soutient un équilibre avec une délicieuse finale prenant l’allure de noisettes.

jaghana (5096) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle 60cl, a clear copper beer with huge head. Nose is intense on exotic fruit, peach, hop resin, luppuline, fresh hops, very powerful. Aroma is on sweet caramel, lot of hop resin, pine, earthy, ripped fruits, very robust and complex ipa.

Good, off-white head, leaving lace over dull-copperish orange beer. Aromatic hops’ nose, mainly rosewater; preserved orangepeel on syrup; gradually shifting to dry hopbales. Bitter, dry-hoppy (dried hops, too), again orange, but more dried peel than syrup. Some caramel, but without becoming sweet. Touch of meaty esters, toasted wholemeal bread. Feels better carbonated than it looks. Medium bodied at least, quite slick to oily. Nice - yes, what? Can’t find much "strong" about 6.5%ABV.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 Une robe orangée, un nez de caramel ouvert sur du fruits exotiques et du résineux. En bouche il y a un bel équilibre entre le malt et les houblons résineux et fruités, le tout s’étirant dans un final avec une belle amertume.

Vignale (2852) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. En östkust-IPA som är en logisk storebror till bryggeriets APA Mactavish. Riktigt fina citrussmaker med citronzest i både doft, smak och eftersmak som är riktigt fin. bra kropp, torr och lite kalkig men mjuk och len ändå, måttlig beska. Ren, snygg, välbalanserad och riktigt god.

Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, tropisk frukt, citrus, grapefrukt, granskott, örter. Torr, frisk och fruktig, lagom sötma, välbalanserad, fin beska med smak av citrusskal och toner av granskott och tallkåda.

Swaroga (1864) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2015
Dirty orange with small to medium head. The beer doesnt have an intensive aroma. Still I can sense typical mango, pomelo zest fruity notes with some white grapes, sponge cake and sugar. Taste is quite dry with a medium strong bitterness. Doesn’t last a lot. Finish is a bit earthy like citrus seeds and some little zest. Overall doesn’t bite but it is refreshing and pleasant to drink.
