3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a totally clear gold with a small white head that laces the little glass and has a film in the center. The aroma has a sweaty, citrusy hop character, balanced by sweet malts. Fairly simple, a little dank. Flavor of citrus (orange peel, grapefruit), florals, grass, and crackery malts. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean mouthfeel that packs some bitterness. Didn’t strike me as anything special, but a nice IPA.

Robe orangee avec une carbo soutenue qui genere un collet dense et persistant.
Aromes fruites, principalement agrumes et fruits exotiques.
Manque un peu de rondeur, bonne amertume sur le final.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange hazy beer with a huge white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma has tropical fruits, grapefruit, licorice and caramel sweetness. Flavor is caramelly sweet and fruity with a salty licoricy finish. Also a fair amount of bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is thicker than medium and little oily. Moderate carbonation. There’s a whole bunch of yeast on the bottom of the bottle, but it’s really better to leave them there. I tried pouring them in for the very end of my glass but it made the taste only worse. All in all, it’s a really good tasting beer, like a model for a great IPA.
