Blonde tirant vers l’ambrée, mousse moyenne blanche. Nez très fruité exotiquement, deuxième nez légèrement malté. Attaque amère et fruitée, légèrement herbacée, le malt suit doucement, caramel. Bonne carbo, texture légèrement liquoreuse. Très bonne IPA, amertume assez puissante.

JulienHuxley (4241) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle from De Molen beershop. Clear amber pour with small lacy white head. Aroma is quite tropical, perfumy, signature Mont Saleve super fruity perfumy aroma, nice malty toastiness though brings some depth. Taste is sweet, tropical, nice caramel, with a rather mild bitterness, but enough to be noticed and cut through the maltiness nicely. Palate is med bodied, slightly boozy with light carbonation. Not the most exciting IPA ever, but enjoyable.

eduardovl (1079) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 11, 2015
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a beige very cloudy color forming a medium light and bubbled light beige head wit medium retention and some few lingering lacings left in the glass. Very dirty with lots of chunks of yeasts floating inside. Smell is very malty and mainly grassy. Very earthy too. Pale malts, crystal malts and grassy hops. Taste follows the nose: A very malty and hoppy beer. Good medium bitterness. Grapefruit and grass. Very Cascade character. Very earthy end. Medium body. Medium to low carbonation. Grassy and citrus in the aftertaste. Persistent grassy notes. Could be a little bit less dirty and yeasty. Hops profile could be also less grassy. In any case, a great French IPA.

obe83 (75) - Livorno, ITALY - NOV 21, 2014
Bottiglia regalatami da Paris Ber color ramato con schiuma compatta epersistente. Al naso molto floreale e resinosa, al palato spicca un ottima amaricatura forse da sostenere con un corpo più importante. Buono il bilanciamento col gusto dei malti.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2014 2x33cl bottles, bb08/2014 Cave à bulles, sampled over 4 months. Inviting nose promises pineapple, strawberry, taste delivers quince and orange compote on a soggier palate with a roasty caramel edge, spruce with a dry plywood edge. Some abv coming through. Nice composition, with rougher edges in the execution.

L_inconnu (64) - SWITZERLAND - APR 24, 2014
Une belle couleur ambrée-rousse (ressemblant plus à une DIPA qu’à une IPA) et une mousse légère, comme attendue. En bouche, on sent bien une amertume bien gérée et une note de fruits et de caramel à peine perceptible. Je suis par contre un peu déçu par la deuxième bouche, trop discrète (pour ne pas dire quasi inexistante). Mais sinon, plutôt bon, juste pas trop ce à quoi je m’attendais

Bottle at home, 13th February 14. Nice floral aroma on opening, taste is bitter, good malts, slightly watery, palate is ok, not spot on. Not bad

Masterbiere (5) - FRANCE - FEB 8, 2014 does not count
Very nice IPA created by La brasserie du Mont Salève. I really like their beer because of the big notes of dry hoping, and it is what we find in the India Pale Ale, with pleasure. The bitterness is prononced but does not hide the malty notes, it is the perfect dose for an India Pale Ale and it is for guy who are not very sensible to bitterness (like I) seek this taste.

Bottle 33cl at "le sur mesure" in Nantes. Hoppy Aroma. Golden Colour, medium to light body and medium carbonation. Finish is bitter. Classic IPA. Nice.
