4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Date tasted: July 25, 2013 ... Glassware: La Fin du Monde snifter... Occasion: enjoying an evening of Strat, music and good beer....Appearance: slightly hazy, lightly golden body with cascading effervescence; head is snow white, snow deep and beautifully laced; quite an attractive ale out the box... Aroma: the bottle boasts four separate hops varieties--and the nostril is bombarded by harsh pine cone and soft department store perfume counter, almost lilac and lavender; secondary citrus and grapefruit sneak in... Palate: as expected, a full-bodied, full-on attack at the teeth with a bit of warmth at the end; second and third sips ease the intensity, but the warmth remains...Taste: as promised, a near-mad balance of hops and malts, with the bitterness being more palpable yet not as put-offish as some maltreated double IPAs...Overall: After a rabid camp discussion on the virtues of the double IPA, I made this part of a build-a-six and am not disappointed with the selection...not mentioned among the thirty or so we pleasantly recalled, this beer gets the taste buds titillated while bringing enough disguised alcohol to only need a few for the weeknight...recommended and part of the double IPA discussion for doing much well...

Thanks to iNBE. One of the hops in here doesn’t agree with me. Maybe it is well enough made but there is a peppery hop that I can’t get past. Serving: Bottle

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Pours an almost clear golden amber with a small white head. Aroma has lots of citrus hops, caramel malts, fruity, light spice, maybe some juniper. Taste is rather sweet, simple, malty, bitter. Average carbonation and an oily body. Pretty boring.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Petite bouteille offerte par le voisin. Une bière qui porte la robe appropriée avec une mousse plus ou moins épaisse mais tenace dans cette chaleur presque tropicale. Des parfums d’agrumes et de pin, de malts entre le miel et le caramel. Une bouche solidement houblonnée, américaine, ni trop amère ni trop maltée. Un corps impérial qui n’est jamais lourd. Une finale fruitée et résineuse drôlement efficace. Facile à boire, bien ficelée.

Clear with golden yellow and brief white foam. Citrus nose -- grapefruit -- with a dryness. Moderate toasted malt with initial touches of caramel. Taste brings out more of the piney aspects of the hops, but citrus is dominant. Moderately bitter. Finish is bitter but becomes sweeter as the beer warms up.
