Aroma: fruity hops, citrus fruits, hints of yeast. Appearance: hazy pale gold, medium white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: lovely bitters intensifying, citrus hops, flowers, sweets in the average-ling finish. Overall: very decent IPA, nice palate. Pint at Les Trois 8, Paris.

@borefts 2012 moderate sweet, simple at first, but gets complexer.. citrus/mandarin

McWorta (478) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 30, 2013
Orange hazy coloured IPA with a small fine laced white head which fades quickly away. On the nose you got aromas of grapefruit, melon, floral and light citrus-hop aromas developing. Light fizzy and soft on the palate with a light watery-velvet texture. The taste is light sweet with some dry bitterness which fully develop in the first short bursting finish which then quickly fades away. Nicely balanced.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - OCT 22, 2013
Pours cloudy golden/amber. Nose: tropical fruits, a bit dusty. Nelson Sauvin hop variety is not evident in beer’s aromatic profile. Fizzy, alcohol/malty backbone balance is OK. Musky finish. Fresh aromatic but not a perfect IPA match ...

McZythos (35) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 7, 2013
Thin head with big bubbles, pearly and non-persistent foam. Murky and amber body, doesn’t look great at all ! But when it comes to the nose... The sugary nose shows deep and intense aromas of exotic fruits, mango and litchi. Very Fruity indeed. The taste is more herbaceous than fruity or sugary with hints of hyacinth. Grapefruit and Earl Grey Tea bitterness type like I use to like it. Very well balanced beer !

fkoolen (143) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2013
Pours a not too appealing hazy amber-brown colour with a slim foamy head. Nose and taste have typical IPA-like citrus, apple, strawberry, orange, mango, raisins and fruity sweetness which are very well balanced by some hoppy bitterness as well as creamy malts, vanilla and spices. Lively mouthfeel with matching carbonation, light body: very drinkable.

Une bière bien houblonnee à l’américaine, une belle amertume. Une robe dorée. A mieux déguster le prochain coup.

freretoc (440) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 17, 2013
Une bonne longueur en bouche riche et houblonné avec du Nelson Sauvin, une des meilleurs bières françaises à "l’américaine" que j’ai pu gouter !
