0,5l bottle. Amber, hazy, white head. Lovely. Fresh hoppy aroma with undertones of caramel, raisins and yeast. Bitter, yes, but with a fine balance with the sweetness. I wish the fresh, light tastes from the hops would be more prominent in the flavour. More citrus, perhaps, but all in all, a good IPA, but far from the best.

Blonde dorée-orangée, un poil voilée. Grosse mousse blanc cassé, relativement persistante. Bons lacings. Au nez houblonnage puissant sur le pin, fruits tropicaux et légèrement citrus. Un léger côté sucré-caramel balançant bien le tout. Le blé n’est pas décelable à priori. En bouche l’amertume s’affirme franchement avec une belle longueur, mais sans astringeance. Un peu salée-épicée en bouche. Sinon pin-résineux dominant dans l’houblon. Le côté sucré-caramel moins présent en bouche... Sensation de fraicheur. Assez grosse carbonatation. Très bonne IPA sur les fruits tropicaux et la fraicheur malgré le fort houblonnage amérisant.

Orange color with medium head. Tropical Fruits, citrusy and resinous. Taste is fruity and sweet-bitter, decent bitter finish. Rather low carbonation. A nice reference-style West Coast IPA.

On tap at Barley Brothers. Clear golden pour with a thick, soapy off-white head. Aroma is a delicious balance of caramel malt and fruity hops, some citrus zest and a bit of tropical fruit. Flavour is the same, simultaneously a hit of bright, fresh hops and a tasty malt bill. Top-knotch IPA.
