3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge thanks to quack-duck for that one! Bottle looks complex, but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, malty, more and more hoppy, dry, grasy. Light bitter background. Finish well balanced, soft malty, still grasy-hoppy notes. Not bad!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much aroma, little hops at all. Taste is bland, not much of an IPA, too carbonated. Nothing exciting here, but drinkable

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 33cl bottle, Bb07/2014, from Cave à Bulles, Paris. Experimental collaboration between two Libièration microbrasseries turned overzealous dryhopping desaster: this watery APA is overfrought with white citrus (grapefruit, lemon) rind bitterness, bordering on harsh chicory root, while the malt base adds no sustenance. Like these brewers were unleashed on a full bag of Centennials like a frustrated teen on Napalm Death’s back catalogue. Also: sugar on an APA recipe? A chore to finish and not a bargain either. Win some, lose some, Libièration...

Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a fluffy off-white head. The aroma has notes of straw, hops, and fruits. The flavor ia sweet with notes of fruits, malt, and dusty hops, leading to a bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Herbal hops, very ’green’, quite grainy, cheap breakfast cereals. Herbal bitter taste, bit too astringent. Expected more of this, this colab is not as good as the individual ipas from these brewers. Just a bit too harsh. (33cl bottle from La Cave à Bulles)
