3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma. Smells mainly of caramel with some slight hoppiness.
Appearance. Pours a nice earthy red colour.
Taste. Toffee and bread flavours really some to come through here, though with not too much sweetness, considering the lack of hoppiness i wouldn’t really call it an ipa.
Overall. I bought this beer wanting to try a new ipa, whilst bean a good beer it certainly doesn’t deliver in the ipa department.

33cl bottle from a trade with Douberd! Pours clear amber colour with a small good lasting off-white head. Aroma of mild hops, citrus, caramel. Taste of mild citrus hops, spruce, toasted malt, boring!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very underwhelming beer, especially since it’s very mildly hopped and quite simple too. Clean enough fermentation, but not any complexity. Sometimes simple is nice, but for that it misses freshness of a satisfying bubble. No. (33cl bottle from Albert Heijn Leuven)

Bottle in Avignon-- Pours clear golden with thin white head. Nose is grassy. Aromas are herbal and spicy hops. Average carbonation, medium body. Medium bitter and grassy finish. A bit boozy.

What’s in a name. Well if one is expecting an IPA, one should get an IPA. Nice amber colour but with a very small head. Lightly malted and hopped; a hint of peppery herbs. Little bite, little mouthfeel.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33 cl bottle at home. Pours clear golden with medium white head. Aroma: mainly malts, caramel, raisins and some apricot. Taste: medium sweetness with low bitterness. Only malts in the taste. Palate: medium bodied, somewhat sticky texture and average carbonation. This beer would fit better as a blond beer than an IPA, because of the lack of hops.

Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and mildly dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, some creamy sweetness but also with a pretty odd grainy tang. Piney hops, trace of spice. Banana esters on the smooth finish. It’s odd for sure but by no means terrible. I just don’t understand why importers are bringing this stuff in when there are far better breweries in NZ.
