Nez fleuri, robe orangée avec une belle mousse onctueuse. Amertume présente dès le début de gorgée et persistante. Manque de subtilité et de présence dans les arômes.

Jarastlad (52) - Arlon, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2015
33 Cl Bottle from Miorge-Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium. Aroma is orange/mandarine mostly with a peppery tang on the back. Pours a very cloudy copper orange. Taste according to me doesn’t fit the description. If fruit and citrus aroma are present, with a spicy finish, it lacks bitterness for a double IPA. Still quite good, but lacks overall balance.

zimbo (753) - SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Also buy from the Beerhive. Effortless thick rocky off white head leaving lacing drift drifts. Deep penetrating sweet nose. Hazy unfiltered opaqueish light gi ginger colour. Balanced carb, lingering complex bitterness which builds in the middle palate leading to a long bittersweet end. Fantastique.

jamestulloch (2052) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with a thick off-white head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of orange, tomato juice and digestive biscuits. Flavour of sweet tangerine, resin and caramel. Dry finish. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Hides the ABV incredibly well - this drinks like it’s 5%.

Bottle from Mi Orge Mi Houblon, Arlon, Belgium!
Pours hazy orange with a high creamy head. Aroma has herbal and fruity hops, overall very slight. Taste has strong herbal and spicy hops, with a hint of tropical fruit. Finish is lovely herbal hoppy with some fruity nuances and some caramel notes. Alcohol is really well hidden. Nice one!!
