Headbanger (3360) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2014
11oz bottle 11/2/14 (Courtesy of TerryR)-40° in Shaker-Pours a murky orangish yellow with a small white head. Aroma of hops and wheat. Taste of hops, citrus, and malt. This medium bodied brew is a bit different but not necessarily in a bad way. Didn’t know what to expect.

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Capped 750 from Whole Foods in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Aroma of light stone fruit and mixed hop. Mild caramel. Med body, at least. Flavor is light stone fruit, with an unripe note, and some floral hop. Mild caramel. It’s fruity/bitter, and really quite nice. Tho far from a NW hop monster.

crossovert (7738) - Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2014
750ml bottle. Golden amber pour, large quickly dissipating off white head. 1spice and citrus in the aroma , slight cider, sweet malt. Flavor is citrus pith, some herbs, really nice actually for an ipa that has crossed the atlantic. Certainly a dirtier example than what is made here but pleasantly surprised.

750ml bottle pours out a crisp golden topped with a long lasting white head. Nose is spice belg yeast and a grapefruit pithy. Taste is as the nose with a good touch of grapefruit hops and some French goodness.

The beer pours a nice medium-light amber with a big, puffy white head. It’s quite cloudy. Very good head retention. Mix of bubble sizes, which I realize is the sort of info everyone wanted to know about this beer. The aroma is a mix of hops with some gentle caramel malt and a dose of yeastiness. The hops smell of apricots, tangerines, juniper, grapefruit. Pretty fruity. The taste is relatively dry. The yeast presence is pretty strong and helps to bring out the bitterness of the beer, which is still quite mild, relative to the style. Bready malt, in the background but still present enough. Mouthfeel is light with gentle effervescence. Finish is long and lightly bitter with grapefruit pith. The beer is fun but too mild. The hops aren’t terribly juicy, and the yeast is too neutral to come in and save the day. Still, it’s fun to try a French take on the style. To be fair, there definitely could be an issue of freshness, but I am drinking this beer fairly soon after my local store received it.

Cybercat (3439) - Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Pours a bubbly, slightly hazy amber with a thick, fluffy, and rather persistent white head. Aroma is typical of a good IPA, hoppy with malty and citrus underpinnings. Hops dominate the flavor, a little more woody than resiny; bitterness is minimal, while malt and sour citrus notes make their appearance. Flavor is smooth and somewhat firm. An average IPA, but it shows that the French know how to make more than wine and love.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Sample at the "Far Out! Space-themed beer tasting" on 10/01/2013. The beer pours a clear dark golden color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, malt and fruit. Light to medium body with flavors of herbal hops, yeast and biscuit malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Above average overall.
