A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Ipa moderne d’une brasserie anglaise qui a fêté ses 10 ans en 2015, et dont la devise est « innovation - passion – knowledge » … On est preneur !! Niveau abv de 5,9 % , malt d’orge, froment, non filtré, non pasteurisé. Mon exemplaire de 50 cl était juste à date limite, à 10 jours près. Couleur jaune tendre pâle, avec un voile de levure. Bulles moyennes, disparates. Mousse à gros flocons, blanche, stable à 5 mm. Fantastique nez fruité/floral/herbeux, avec du malt clair et une pointe de beurre. 1ère bouche soyeuse à la belle entame malt/fruit/fleur. Arrière-bouche sur des agrumes, lierre, tanins, raisins blancs. 2ème au superbe ensemble malt/houblon/fleurs. Arrière-bouche avec du caractère, de la finesse, de la complexité. 3ème à la grande densité des saveurs. Arrière-bouche longue, à l’amertume précise. Longueur qui revisite tout, et nous le développe encore. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Alcool au très bon niveau pour orchestrer pareille composition. Finale qui ne désempare pas, et trouve même de nouvelles nuances. CONCLUSION : la vraie ipa, pas celle du old empire de Papy, mais la moderne avec des saveurs, des fruits, des houblons, des saveurs complexes, et tutti quanti … pardon all that kind of things …

Butelka 500ml. Slomkowy klarowny kolor o bialej malej pianie. Aromat cytrusow grejfruta z lekkim chmielem. Orzezwiajacy smak cyrtrusow z lekko slodkim finiszem miodowym lub ananasowym. Niezla IPA o ciekawym bukiecie..w sam raz na wykonczeniowe poprawki w kuchni.

lokis333 (279) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - MAR 26, 2016
Clear watery yellow color with small white foam. Aromas of hops, herbs, floral and sweet in a way smells like tea. Palate, full body, medium thickness texture, so not watery and leaves nice sweet hoppy finish. Taste, is sweet that develops bitter taste but not too harsh, has bit herby and nettle taste. Overall very nice ale would recomend.

Parmenion777 (68) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Clear light straw gold colour with a smallish white head. Fruity and floral aroma; tropical fruit and grapefruit in the main. Some lacing; a mild bitterness followed by a spicy fruity sweetness and a good long finish. A good IPA and a very nice beer.

Bottle 500ml. Aroma is not that pleasant, it has cheese and earthy. Color is very pale yellow, basically no head. Taste has some hoppiness which disappears soon. I was expecting more of the taste. Slightly bitter finish. This was not bad but I have had better IPAs.
