4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Double IPA like looks, with lasting off white head and light brown glowing body. Rich hop aroma, a well made mix of American hopped tropical fruits and darker forest like ones. Very pleasant caramel malt base underneath. Good mouth feel, not too thin and not too much carbonation. Strong bitterness at first, with only some darker fruit juiciness to balance. I don’t mind this though, as the taste is rich enough to justify that fierce bitterness. So not quite an American style, full ipa body but rather a strongly hopped hopped French interpretation. And that’s fine by me. Tasty. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

75cl bottle, 6.1%. Clear amber with big and fluffy cream colored head. Nice lacing. Quite a lot of grapefruit, some marmalade, pine, thyme, lime juice. Soft sweet malty with some toast and roasted grains. Medium sweet with medium bitter finish. Medium bodied with slight creamy feel and soft but full carbonation. Pretty decent IPA.

A piwo I widely enjoyed in a fine share with McTapps. Fresh and fruity with loads of hops and decent bitterness towards the end. A full bodied beer which pleased with its peaches in the back. Thumbs up.

Couleurs de bière, Montpellier. 30/10/14. Tap.
Nice IPA, nice bitterness but a bit too few aromas. The beer also lack of gaz, but maybe the problem was from the tap.
