3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at La Fine Mousse, Paris 22nd April 2013. This is a nice Beer, does not remind me of a Double IPA though, more a slightly hoppy, dry bitter beer, not enough floral hops and not enough mouth feel, overly carbonated, refreshing after a long walk around Paris

Bottle. Clear bronze with a medium that soon dissipated. Hoppy with a surprising amount of bitterness that took me by surprise. Plenty of body.
How the world has changed with the French producing this pretty good example of a double IPA. Long may it continue.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Pours an opaque, slightly dark amber with a large, off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity and resinous. Somewhat sweet with orange and passionfruit and mandarin. Some pine there as well. Taste is quite exquisite. Quite dry with a lot of resin. Begins with some fruity tones of passion fruit and nettles. Perhaps some mango and orange as well. The resinous and somewhat caramelly finish is very dry. 56 IBUs are well used. Palate is medium and fittingly carbonated.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle. Hazy orange, light brown color, medium, white head. Nose : citrus , zest, crashed pepper, esters, hay and a bit ginger tart. Sip : creamy, medium thick, tingling carbonation, well preserved. Sweet spicy tart flavour soon covered with strong and still spicy hop bouquet. The bitterness is quite moderate for the style but it's imposing with complexity. Nice one. Easy to drink. Reminds a heavy hopped triple style brew. Something lighter and better balanced then Chouffe Double IPA triple.
