3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Brum. My first French dipa? It’s got some Belgian influence. Some heat. It’s fine, not a great dipa. it’s got some good hop and some good bitterness on finish and it’s not over the top, some Belgian yeast I think, some sweetness some syrupiness. A Flanders DIPA definitely.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE at Cave a bulles.
Head: off-white, medium, frothy, avg. retention. Colour: amber, hazy.
Aroma: bitter herbs, some citrus/flowery notes in the background.
Taste: zesty, light citrus, very bitter.
Strong herbal bitterness. In my opinion, misses some malt sweetness to balance.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gentle but rich malts are the beginning of the aroma followed by an almost minty note, a chunk of pine and a hint of orange. Restrained for style but very pleasant. Flavour adds a lingering rich caramel like note that nicely balances the not over powering bitterness. Doesn’t have the aggressiveness of many DIPA style beers and is very well balanced.
