Pours with really nice head. Colour dark amber. Very week aroma of malt and blunt hop. In taste much better. Very hoppy and tasty. Overall the beer is good but I cut a lot for luck of or very sparse dry hoping in IPA.

Pas très agréable au nez (à mon goût), mousse onctueuse à souhait. Goût axé sur le Malt avec une légère torréfaction, bonne amertume due aux houblons. Pas trop fan mais je ne doute pas qu’elle puisse bien plaire.

I have written before that the French craft brewers are unknowingly introducing a new Brown IPA style, and this is yet another example! It’s like an ambrée on malts, standard US yeast, well hopped (but more bittering than aroma) and not quite clean. And I personally really dig it. I have to brew one myself some time! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Superbe bière, amertume forte . Par 2 super brasseurs, une belle réussite et une imagerie sympa, ce qui est un petit plus.

mile (3725) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, caramel and some bread, light fruitiness, light herbal/citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, light -some caramel and light bread with light fruitiness, light herbal/citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light - some caramel and light bread, light fruitiness,light herbal/citrus hoppyness. Maybe an "French IPA" but not real one. Not very enjoyable.

daje (3332) - NORWAY - FEB 15, 2016
Bottle, december 28th 2014. 6,66%/66,6IBU...of course. Hazy brown with a small white head. Malty aroma with ripe fruit and spices. Taste is quite sweet, with grass tones and a caramel finish. Forgettable.

Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2015
Dark brown, full and creamy tanned head. Aroma of malt, melanoidins, biscuit, and grass - almost no hoppiness. Taste is a bit better. Still very low level of hop-flavour, but at least some bitter notes. Bitter, but no "depth" in its taste. Disappointing!

kerenmk (3813) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks rayaron. Dark bronze-brown and clear, with a white film. Malt and molasses aroma, bitter, sharp and stale taste. Medium body, malty finish.

tomer (2733) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 25, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, small stable off white head, cloudy lightish brown color, jammy aroma with some stale grains and bread, light fruity,grainy flavor with some herbal bitterness, long bitter aftertaste, not too pleasant. Much too old.

rayaron (1204) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at keremk’s place. Slightly hazy with brownish-amber with medium beige head. The aroma has some fruitiness, piney with some maltiness. The flavor has light hoppy bitterness, a bit grassy, some roastiness, notes of orange and grains. Lively carbonation, medium-bodied.
