Citrus aroma full of pine, tropical fruit and some malt. Pours light golden with a white and frothy head. Extreme bitterness in taste. Fabulous flavours of citrus, grapefruit and lemon grass. Medium body, relatively light carbonation. Long after taste. Not a beer for the faint of heart. Wonderful beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, pine, hops and citrus.
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with slight yeast and with a medium off-white head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit and pine; ends slightly/medium bitter and slightly dry with hops and citrus.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. It’s really tasty, having IBU than most IIPA’s while still sweet and easy to drink.

The beer is somewhat unclear who go in amber color. The foam is white with medium to large bubbles. The foam disappears leisurely quickly and leave fine traces. The scent surprises, here are some hops tones. The following are some sweet fruits of peach, orange and then comes the lemon. A little syrup, and white bread. You can also find some herbs, pine and grass, slightly sweet malt. The taste starts with some hops flavor but then comes a little sweetness of malt. Behind the little kids fruits that are now starting to take off, grapefruit, lemon, orange and peach. You will also find some herbs with an earthy tone than pine and grass. The hops hold themselves back a bit and release until the fruits and the taste more in a really good balance. Will a medium belongs bitterness that is absolutely right. Medium body. Occasionally with carbonic acid. Creamy and slightly greasy in the mouth. Mild bitterness at the end and a little sticky surface.

Blonde voilée. Arômes de houblons américains bien présents. Balance corps-amertume tres bien réalisée, voila qui lui fait gagner des points. Goût prononcé d’alcool en fin de bouche qui vient malheureusement gâcher le bon début. Bière correcte, vaut la peine d’etre essayée.

The beer pours a hazed honey golds colour with a 1" off-white cap that lingers. Plenty of effervescence is visible. Aroma is pine, citrus, honey, and grains. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is light grapefruit, wood, and notes of honey and grainy malt. Quite good.
