COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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.

Bottle. Pours a light golden amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma and flavor are floral, spicy, somewhat citrusy English hops and some biscuity malt. A bit of honey. Finishes fairly bitter. Light carbonation and palate. Quite nice. Glad I got a chance to try this one. I hope a real English IPA; the hop profile is very different from an American one.

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 …

Light gold colour, grassy aroma. Not as in your face as a west coast US ipa, but tasty, easy drinking.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 (Bottle). The aroma and taste is very hoppy, floral and fruity. In the aftertaste is a nice dry bitterness. A fresh and tasty beer! Very nice!

Had this on cask. Gold color, pretty pale and slightly cloudy. Aroma is pretty funky, kind of like smelly feet. Very easy drinking. Mild hopping with a nice bitter finish. Not over powering at all.
