Bottle at Les Trois 8, Paris. Clear deep golden with a stable head. Sweetish, yeasty, orange zest aroma. Good balance, orange zest, hints of yeast. Slightly grainy mouthfeel. Different- a tripel or an IPA or simply a mix of both.

Countbeer (4035) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized sticky white creamy foamy head on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Aroma is a creamy mix of herbs, butters, malts, yeast, some peach, cheese, flowers and a hint of porridge. Flavours of peach, some red fruit, malts, herbs, cream, butter, bitter, grass, some yeast, some crispy plants and a slight hint of cardboard. Aftertaste is bitter, fruity, creamy, herbal and light butter. Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy close to oily texture. Wow a complete different approach of this style, creamy and different fruits, but no hops and strong bitterness, different but quite nice.

minutemat (883) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
75cl bottle at the 3rd Shrewsbury Bottle Share, courtesy of me. Bought at a deli in French Flanders a while ago so perhaps wasn’t in optimum condition. Has a farmhouse yeastiness to it rather than a typically hopped-out American double IPA, although there is a slight bitterness but, not being particularly fresh, these bitter hops seem a bit smudgey and numbed. Slight resinous quality but this bottle seems like its towards the end of its life. A re-rate with a fresh bottle beckons!

planky84 (1877) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle from NWAF, Derby. Drank at home. Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of peaches, fresh cream and caramel with some notes of nut (I like that phrase, rolls off the tongue nicely). Sweet nutty flavour, lots of fruit in there too. Bitter finish. Nice.

ElectroMod (87) - - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Pours a hazy orange with a sparse white head. Aroma is fruity, zesty orange and hoppy. Taste is orange boiled sweets, hops and slightly malty with a slight bitterness that sticks around. Medium carbonation and nice zingy mouthfeel. Don’t know what other raters find so bad about this beer; I think it’s pretty good!

A Double IPA??? not lot of flavour but good... it’s a light IPA... I’m disappointed because this beer is a french famous DIPA... There are better french DIPA/IPA....

jerd16 (130) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Pours deep carrot orange with residual white head. Aroma is predominantly British IPAesque with woody and spicy notes. Slight Belgian twist in the form of yeast and some subtle pine. Competent mouth-feel with medium body and some fine carbonation. Sweet citrus on front palate fades to pervasive earthy bitterness. Fairly unpleasant unrefined grating and lasting finish.
