3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Thereís a really sweet nose to this. Dominated by bread and toasted malt with a light floral hoppiness. Some hints of pine in the background. The flavor has just a bit of hop bitterness. Otherwise, intense malty sweetness of toast and toffee. A weird spice note, perhaps from the yeast strain? A really sweet citrus character, too.

very hazy brownish yellow colour, huge, long lasting white head; great aroma of grass, hay, citrus, hints of figs and grape and maybe some bread; taste of a typical IPA with very slightly watery feeling - hoppy bitterness with citrussy notes (mainly grapefruit) and significant maltyness; correct IPA

The kick is in the longlasting aftertaste that is quite bitter. Too overwhelming maybe. Has sime pineapple and lemon, mostly grapefruit. Not a fan of that. At the brewery

Hazy deep orange appearance with strong head. Heavy malty and bready aroma mixed with citric hops scent. Medium sweetness, strong bitterness. Interesting combination. Very good and unorthodox IPA style.

23rd November 2013
Very hazy amber beer with a big fluffy off white head. Palate starts soft but rapidly turns crisp. Airy. Sweetish IPA this one, sweet Belgian yeast. Light lactose grapey hop fruits and sweet pine. Underneath is a little lime peel and tropical friuts. Hop spice. Finishes airy with more of the same and the grape turning tangy. Very drinkable.

Itís not a beer you should drink as a first beer of the evening. It has a bit of a weird aftertaste. Would recommend to ipa lovers

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy gold pour with creamy white head. Really good aroma , super tropical hops, lots of mango and pineapple, light resinous notes, very West Coast style. Taste is equally good nice mouthful of hops to suck on, fruity with an enjoyable light bitter hop finish , nice crisp malt. A little yeasty. Palate is smooth, very good.

330 ml bottle. NR84. BB 05/2014. From saveur-biere.com.
Hazy brown colour with a huge foamy off-white head.
Piney and resiny hops, mild bitterness, caramel sweetness and grainy malty dryness in the aroma. The flavour is resin and grapefruit, moderate bitterness, grainy maltiness and dryness. The bitterness is actually quite strong but round and pleasant. Drinkable and tasty IPA.
