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.

(50 cl. BB 08/08/2012) Une bière qui présente une robe dorée. Une petite tête blanche qui laisse des traces en se retirant. Un nez qui propose des fleurs de houblons et un malt aux contours mielleux. Une naissance de parfums citronnés. Un goût qui se développe au cours de la dégustation. Un ensemble houblonné qui laisse beaucoup de fleurs sur les papilles. Du citron qui réussit à se placer sur ma langue. Les céréales maltées dégagent davantage de miel que de caramel. L’amertume proposée est plus ou moins intense. Une bouche habitée par un corps moyen-faible. Un pétillement actif. Une texture qui, avec de l’imagination, est huileuse. Une finale faite de fleurs amères qui, à défaut d’être explosive, demeure agréable.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2012
Cask flight at Ginger Man in NYC. Light golden pour with a light white head that laces nicely. Very faint Earthy hop fragrance. Taste is Earthy hops, sweet roasted pale malt and biscuit. Thin but slippery in the mouth if that makes any sense. It’s velvety smooth. Piney hops linger in the palate. Nice but not great.

Cloudy amber with one finger of offwhite head. Nose is oxidized and aged, not sure how fresh this is. Herbal and piney hops on the nose with a bready character. Lightly bitter with lots of herbal and leafy hops. Hope to try this again.

teorn88 (3555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a clear yellow straw color with a huge soapy white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is hoppy with tropical fruits and some grass. Very nice. Taste is a bit disappointing though: the bitterness is very mild and not anywhere near where I’d like it to be in an IPA. Flavours are quite balanced between malty sweetnes and hoppy bitterness. Grassy and floral. Thin in body and lively carbonation. Overall, it’s a 50/50 beer to me. Everything is great except for the flavour, which really laks in hops profile, bitternees, and fruity notes.
