3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
THOUGHTS: Not at all my cup of beer. Not much balance at all. Nice hop bomb, but not enough malt to make it enjoyable to drink. Seems like there might be some rye in there. If there is they should really promote that. Fairly British. My can said it was 7% ABV not 6.6 as listed here.
TECHNICAL: Can. Poured an ever so slightly, hazy, dark, reddish amber that looked like a very old and dirty penny. It also had an average to large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had heavy dark bread, grain and something like rye; moderate pine, spruce, and earthy hops; light orange rind hops; and a little tobacco. It should be nice but something is off-putting to me. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet and nearly harshly bitter with a long duration. There was citrus, rye, dark bread, grains, pine, spruce, and citrus rinds. The medium body was rather dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.

Bière un peu trop légère vu son titrage.
Nez assez léger porté sur quelques agrumes, un peu vert en fond.
Bouche très légère, très léger maltage un brin écoeurant. Jolies petites notes agrumes et assez herbales, fraîches.

Clear amber color with beige head. Aroma is mostly malty with caramel notes and toasted malt. Also some sweet orange peel and earthy hops. Taste starts with caramel malt, burnt sugar, finish has a bittersweet orange flavor with a slight resiny aftertaste. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. It’s not bad at all but it’s too malty for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy, orange colored, medium beige creamy head, nice lacing and lasting. Aroma is of caramel, malt, orange hardcandy, carob. Taste is medium sweet malt, caramel, orange hardcandy, carob, some tropical fruits, medium-light bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily. Maybe it was hoppy once, now it’s just a good example of a dead IPA.
