3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Golden body, light hazy. Floral hops yet mild. Floral, classic, bitter citric. Straightforward malts, moderate bitterness. Pretty nice, not very rich. Okay brew. (33cl bottle from La Cave à Bulles)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate west coast citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Good brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle, shared with local RBers. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin white head. Few dots of lace. Caramel malt prominent in the nose. Smooth, sort of soft, moderate strength carbonation. More dry in the finish. Moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet. But a big biscuity malt, light caramel, and spicy hop aroma, lightly soapy. OK IPA, not greatest... Not as easy drinking as I’d like from an IPA this light.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a fairly transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells of bitter malt with a forward pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Solid but not spectacular.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head. Slightly hazy pale amber body. Light floral strawy aroma with fruity notes. Dry, and faintly sweet, strawy fruity candy taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish grainy strawy wooden aftertaste with resiny dandelion notes. Nice, but a little boring. (0.33l bottle at Couleurs de Bieres, Montpellier.)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cave à Bulles, Paris
Hazy amber color; medium sized head. Mild aroma, some orange peel, light wood; very light cereals. The flavor is well blended, some caramel and cereals, with a good bitterness level, some aromatic components too but not too much, not as expected, and not as fresh.
