2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Exp. date 20/05/15. Pours hazy dark orange with a bubbly white head. Aroma is malty, fruity, yet there is a strong note of smoked ham, cooked vegetables and earthiness. Taste is bitter with small fruity notes very far away and a large herbal kick, which gives a bit of a menthol-like feeling. Earthy as well, Large presence of the alcohol... Yeasty, and remarkably dry. Thick texture, yet a bit of a watery mouthfeel. Didn’t like what I drank.

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.

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
