(En fût à la brasserie): Massivement terreux, presque feuilles mortes avec une touche mentholée, herbacée très évanescente. La base maltée est épicé, craquante et supportée par une eau dure.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2014
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. One taste and I was surprised to see this in the pale ale category. This is equal to other IPAs. Deliciously fruity pine citrus, grapefruit, tangerine flavors. Still a fairly light body, lovely bitter finish -- my favorite plain old "american pale ale" or whatever category it supposedly belongs.

teorn88 (6473) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, Pizza Port tap takeover. It pours a peachy orange body with a soapy white head. Aroma is truly great with loads of super-fresh hops. Citrusy with orange and loads of pineapple notes. Some leafs and grass. Taste is hugely hoppy and fruity, but not excessively bitter. More citrusy notes and some pineapple and grass. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, top notch APA.
