3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from La Cave à Bières, Yverdon-les-Bains; bb 22/09/2015
Cloudy but bright light amber color, medium sized compact head. Very nice aroma of fruity hops; sweet oranges, light cedar, plums, mango. Dry mouthfeel, weaker than expected; the malt profile is simple; strong bitterness, strong resiny hops, a bit fruity; too much yeast, and some vegetables.
Nice beer, a bit too dirty.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330mL bottle, pours an opaque dark orange with a small off-white head. Nose is very malty and yeasty, with caramel malts, yeast, and some earthy hops. Flavour is quite odd, with earthy hops, muted muffled yeasty notes, and earthy bready malt. Very confused flavours, with a very yeasty, dry bready finish that doesn’t sit too well. Doesn’t emulate its North American counterparts too skillfully. It’s okay, but nothing impressive.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange color with big white head. Nice tropical fruity hops. Heavy bitterness, dry. Very dry for a Double IPA. Medium carbonation. Nice, but one-dimensional.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lovely beer. Very intensely hopped. Tropical fruits, passion fruit, mango etc and a nice lingering bittereness. Strong in alcohol but quite thirstquenching anyways. A very nice mild double ipa, not too much caramel and sweetness as most double IPAs

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Worthy of the label Double IPA, this beer plays in the soft category of this kind. The aftertaste of bitterness is strong and arrives rapidly. As fo many IPAs, the beer is good, but it may not be easy to drink more than one bottle.

Odeur de houblon, goût de houblon. Y’a du houblon et rien d’autres. Pas d’autres goût. Après une, deux minutes, on sent l’alcool qui chauffe la gorge. Elle ne mérite pas le "double" de double IPA

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colour. White head which becomes a thin white layer. Hoppy aroma. Creamy in the mouth. Bitter but less bitter than the average double IPA.

bottle from Bièrerie Illkirch-Graffenstaden. Hazy golden, with a white head. Intensive aroma of hops, tropcial fruit. Full-bodied, intensive malty base that delivers loads of delicious fruity hops. Slightly grassy and resine, but mainly with tropical fruit flavours.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light amber, rather clear. Nice head. Powerful aroma, piney and fruity. Sweet feeling, but very balanced with bitterness. Don’t taste the alcohol. Yay.
