4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Many thanks to Cunningham for this bottle! The beer is amber in colour and malty-floral in the nose. It starts quite bitter, very nice, with a floralness of pine beside the not to sweet but nice malty body. Highly drinkable, very nice. Hints of citrus, nice smooth malt. Pineapple, citrus, very fresh. The aftertaste is a bit malty, not too sweetish, floral-bitter dominant. Very nice and round. The tropical-floral hop with a nice intense bitterness remains long on the tongue. Great IPA!

Kindly shared by Jaghana.
Couleur cuivrée légèrement trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez malté caramel, houblonné fruité, notes levures. Gout caramel brulé et forte amertume de sapin avec malt toasté et fruité pêche. Bon corps. Fin amere et caramel longue. Bien meilleure à ce que je m’attendais.

Bottle 355ml kindly sent by Nisse666 thanks ! A clear copper beer with low head. Nose is on grain with light wet paper, seems like a bottom yeast one, no hops in the nose ? Aroma is on caramel, light butterscotch, light toasted chocolate, grassy bitterness, almond, toasted nuts, toffee, body is medium, better that the nose expected. Finish is on dry toasted grain, dry bitterness, long bitter aftertaste.

35,5cl bottle from a trade with Cunningham - thanks! Hazy amber with an off-white head. Moderate hoppy aroma with tropical fruits, caramel, malt and hints of pine. Sweet and malty with noticable hoppy notes. Quite okay.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from a friend. Light amber colour, slightly hazy, off-white creamy head. Big malty undertone among with resinous, piny hops, a little tropical fruity: all seem a bit chemical. Carbonation influences the flavours, defected metal, iron-like taste. Medium carbonation, watery body, oily mouthfeel.

Bottle - (best before 6/14) Pours a clear orange/amber with a small, quickly dissipating head. Nice aromas of grapefruit and orange. The taste is muddled with an astringent finish.

Bottle shared with Sabine & Martin. Refreshing and cloudy with some peaches upfront. Strong hoppy dominance only disturbed by some metallic aftertaste.
