A french Imperial IPA which immediatly smacks you in the face with it’s fresh, strong and somehow even spicey hoppy aroma. A wonderful treat and a real special (and fresh) IPA. Must be in my top 10 of favorite IPA’s.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy bright golden, decent white cap and even scrape of lacing. Nose is big sherberty, almost spearminty but little fruity depth. Initial taste is quite green, brassy bitterness and a firm carbonation carries thing through swiftly. Daubs of lemon, sherbery and a polleny. Oddly bitter, maybe a bit chalky/ear wazy on the finish. Swift enough on the linger.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A cloudy orange-amber coloured beer that pours with a very large foamy white head. It has bitter orange and peppery hop flavours, raspberry and red fruity notes followed by citrus on the spicy toffee, vanilla and peppery finish. Excellent!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Thanks to Geiserich. Amber body with white head. Not very strong aroma of malts and hints of citrus maybe with a little bit of sourness. Taste is malty and thin with hints of fruits. Aftertaste is mostly bitter with some malts. Was expecting much more, maybe to old.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle shared by Geiserich at RB Tasting Linz, thanks!
Deep orange, hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head.
Quite light aroma of citrus, sweet malts, soap, some other fruits.
Tastes a bit flat, of grapefruit, orange, resin, slight tropical fruits, candy, biscuit, some alcohol.
Medium, quite creamy moutheel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter, zesty, fruity, sweet malty.
OK. Quite simple and flat, pretty uncomplex for an Imperial IPA. Still with some nice fruit and sweet malt notes, but overall nothing special.
