3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mostly clear, brown body with frothy unstable off white head. Could be better. Nice floral hop mix, bit sharp maybe and with crisp malts to back up. Yeast seems a bit simple, but okay. Strong bitterness, only just enough caramel like sweetness to balance a bit. But especially the end is harsh in bitterness. I do like the base flavours in here, well produced malt mix. Good mouth feel. Just a bit too bitter, especially the astringent ending. But certainly an enjoyable ipa. (33cl bottle from La Moustache Blanche)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy amber red beer with medium head. Nose is hopy on the exotic fruit side and on carared malt. Aroma is dry, bitter fruity on the exotic side but not too much, grapefruit, light acidity and yeast notes. Finish has carared touch and light caramel.
