Cloudy light orange with an average fluffy head, yeast sediment. Aroma is bitter fruits, grapefruit peel, light herbal, yeasty, very little pine. Moderate sweet with a long bitter finish. Average carbonation with quite a filling palate. A good IPA, on the rough side.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2016 330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a dark orange color forming a medium to small off white head with good retention and lots of lingering and molasses lacings left in the glass. Big chunks of gray yeasts floating in the bottom of the glass. Sweet and very fruity nose. Strong notes of pale and caramel malts. Strong notes of melon too. Flowery hops. Sweet upfront taste. Strong notes of melon and grassy hops. Moderated bitterness. Medium molasses body. Medium bitterness. Melon and grass in the aftertaste. Great drinkability. Great French IPA. Mont Salève rulez!

Blonde orangée légèrement trouble. Fine mousse blanche. Nez d’ananas, de pêche et de fruits exotiques. Bouche pêche / ananas, légèrement boisée. Belle amertume, bonne carbo, corps un peu léger. Très bonne bière comme toujours chez le mont Salève !

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2014. Pours a clear golden with a long lasting, white head. Aroma has huge citrus, mandarin juice, orange ice cream/sorbet, and maybe some pineapple. Some grains as well. Taste is even more grainy, has a hop bitterness and again these nice, ripe citrus flavors. Exiting taste but slightly boring, slightly watery body.

Ottima Ipa che non è come tutte le altre...questo luppolo sembra dargli un sapore di fragoline...e di frutti di bosco...ci sono sia la dolcezza dei malti che la fragranza del luppolo che non è mai invadente e ti accompagna per tutta la beva. Magnifica interpretazione francese dello stile. Faranno strada...sono unici!

Tap @ BBF 14. Pours golden amber with a white head. Aroma of hay, grains, dry yeast, mandarin peel, rural, juicy hops, funk, barnyart and some citrusy yet grassy hops. Taste us very funky with some grassy hops, some straw, resin and pine. Also has some more crisp and citrusy hops in there. Nice and different!

bottle from Bièrerie Illkirch-Graffenstaden. Golden colour with a mid-sized white head. Lovely hop aroma, perfumy, floral and fruity. Medium-bodied, malty base delivering loads of perfumy and fruity hops, tropicla fruit and citrusy hints. Delicious and very moreish.

330 mml bottle tasted on 18/08/2014. Hazy orange colour with a medium to low white head. Aroma is very hoppy and fruity with notes of wood too. Taste of intense hops, malts, bitter and a little spicy. Aftertaste is bitter but no intense. Next one please!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
APA with a French hop. Besides the usual bitter and aromatic notes of hop, this beer has a strange taste of herbs.
