3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Lightly hazy in the glass, dark golden in color and with a big, dense, white head. Lacings. The aroma is fruity and piney, with some sweetish malts in the back. Some cellar notes in the flavor, with fruityness and some pine cones. Decent bitterness too, and a herbal note. Full body and nice carbonation, semi-dry on the palate. Long cellary, piney and fruity finish with a fine bitterness. Decent this one, nothing more. 150724

Amber colour, thick cap. Aeoma like for a typical Ipa, but the taste a bit more waterish

Amber with medium light beige head. Bitter aroma. Nice bitterness with fruity notes, but bit too much unbalanced malt sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A really lovely clear orange golden color with a fine white head. Caramel malty, some yeast and citric aroma. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Citric, some yeast, mild fruity and caramel malty flavor. Unusual but quite nice and refreshing IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Slight hazy amber with fluffy off white head. Brown sugar, yeast, grapefruit, kumquat, quite herbval, curry spices. Hard to describe, it seems a bit musty almost, paper or wood like, with dry old spices that have lost most of their flavor. Medium sweet, light bitterness. Medium bodied with full carbonation. Not really into it.

330cc bottle. Pours orange with white head. Metalic/tin can aromas at first. Medium sweetness, malt and caramel. Some yeast almost cheese and spices. Medium bitter. From the hops I get some citrus and grapefruit but mostly herbs and floral.

Malts, toffee,fruits, grass, herbs and a hint of yeast in the aroma. Amber with a white head. Medium sweet and medium + bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall an enjoyable drink, but not very good as a IPA for me.

ambrée, mousse avec une tenue correcte dans la durée. Goût légérement fruité et bonne amertume en fin. IPA honnête.
