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.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, - JAN 4, 2011
On tap at the brewhouse. Sample size. Amber color with thin white head. Really hoppy aroma, spicy taste balanced by caramalised malt that combines for a great bitterness, and a really great IPA.

Beer5000 (5951) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2016
On tap @ Patricks. Clear golden body with a medium sized, lacing white head. Aroma has malt and mild berries/grapes, slightly spicy. Flavor is smooth malt, light caramel, moderate fruits and berries. OK bitterness. Medium body and average aftertaste with more bitterness. Not the most typical IPA, but sure a drinkable one.

Flanfl (628) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 26, 2016
Hazy light copper body, medium white head. Aroma of caramel, exotic fruits, candied/dried fruits, spicies, sweet flowers. Flavours if caramel, ripe Exotic fruits, slightly piney with a medium bitter backbone. Some spicies too. Medium strong bitter dry finish with caramel and pine. Balanced and round beer with an interesting and different nose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (4893) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2016
Kveldens tredje fra planke på Le Trou du Diable krankupp på Cirkus (Stavanger) sep-16: lett uklar lys kobbergylden med fint skum som varer. Alle de fire pale ales jeg smakte hadde noen fellestrekk: en nærmest cremet munnfølelse, balanserte smaksinntrykk og myk, behagelig avslutning. Så variasjonene lå i humleprofilene. Deilige øl alle fire, dog uten å være minneverdige. Fruktig anslag med appelsinmarmelade, honning, blomster og karamell. Myk bitterhet i avslutningen, og lang, deilig ettersmak. Synd at de olfaktoriske evnene mine var sterkt reduserte av forkjølelse.

Hazy gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Mild creamy sweetness from the malts. Orangy hops, touches of hop spice and pine. Some citric peel bitterness on the finish. Decent. Bottle from the back of the cellar so has held up well.

Belle rousseur cuivrée et col blanc qui colle assez. Bel équilibre, corps assez doux et qui soutient les houblons, belle palette aromatique, parfums floraux et épicés assez originaux.L’amertume est très modérée finalement, la rondeur/douceur prédomine. Chère en France mais vaut le coup d’être essayer.C’est un bon breuvage.

660ml (bottled ..2015) shared by impuritylaw@oldmanriver’s, merci! Bref: makes up for humble straight-forward aromatics with impressively clean and dialed in fresh pine, citrus and lime. - Immensely drinkable at this ABV and dryness. Shines with a mature dose of hop aromatics and bitters, a subtle cocktail mixed by a bartender with some age and wisdom (lime balanced against orangeat, wet pine against gently toasted biscuit malts). Love the bottle format and so far most of this brewery’s output.
