Bouteille partagée avec Patrick. Je n’ai peu d’envie de m’attarder sur cette bière ambrée qui avait un col majestueux de mousse beige car elle est contaminé, le nez est de vieux fûts, d’acide à batterie et la bouche est dans le même registre. Dommage car l’étiquette est attrayante.

330ml bottle, amber color, with a frothy white head, light candied orange peel, peach, fruity yeasty nose, with a mild orange marmalade, toasted, biscuity, munich malt sweetness accent, and with an orange candied cake doughy panettone note, within a soft floral leafy, citrusy hoppy aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with an apple, orange, tangerine, lemon fruit yeastiness, flowery earthy raw leafy, grassy, minty hop character, with some grapefruit, lime rind, cedary bittering flavours, and with a mild toasted, caramel, pale malt sweetness backbone, leading towards a warming, soft fruity, yeasty, zesty, lemon, grapefruit, lingering grassy, leafy hop bitterness finish.

lefossoyeur (531) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
Copper with a thick and creamy head. Aromas are medicinal with hint of herbal hops plus a pinch of tropical fruit. Medium body, lively carbonation, medium bitterness, a bit of funk in there finishes on a citric note and a bit of sweet caramel malt. Don’t think this beer is too clean...Looked real nice but feels contaminated a bit.

Fred82 (2128) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
330ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Amber with small head. Not much lacing.
Aroma : Big passion fruits with piny notes. Very fruity with light malt. Quite floral. Light caramel.
Palate : Soft carbonation.
Taste : Big fruits with pine and citrusy notes. Very citrusy and fruity finish. Moderate bitterness for a DIPA. Finish light malt with light caramel. Notes of lime.
Overall : interesting but the fruity notes feel a bit artificial. I’m really not saying there is artificial flavoring in there but something make it feel this way. Carbonation could have been a bit fizzier. Not bad overall but not on par with the good examples of the style.

Pours a one finger off-white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving traces of lace. Hazy amber color with some yeast left in bottle. Light grapefruit hop nose. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor has malty sweetness and mellow grapefruit hops. Decent DIPA. Higher ABV is hidden. $6.00 for a 330ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

marcus (8280) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle from Star Grocery. Pours cloudy copper with a decent beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor that starts sweet and fruity and finishes with a boldly bitter piney hop taste. Lots of carbonation.

bhensonb (13208) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle from Brewforia. Pours darkish hazy orange gold with a foamy beige head. Aroma seems floral and fruity. Med plus body. It starts with sweet caramel but then a whole lot of floral and fruity hop overwhelms that. Not harshly bitter and there’s a brown sugar component, but it’s well or over matched. Good stuff, possibly with a little heat. Hard to be sure if it’s hop or heat.

drjay44 (3159) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2011
33 cl. bottle. Pours a medium, off white head, good duration, over a hazy, particle laden amber (SRM 8) body....nose is honey, toffee/caramel, pineapple, light spice....taste is sweet malts, with honey, pineapple, light pine, licorice, finishing with a light lingering bitterness.....mouth feel thick, sticky, with light alcohol burn, carbonation adds a creamy foam. This is a very sweet I/DIPA, with the malt back bone dominating the hops. It almost wanders into a Barleywine in style. The commercial deScription mentions Simcoe as one of the hops. I had difficulty detecting it. Was this an older bottle and past its prime? BJCP 7/2/14/4/7

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2011
An incredibly sweet and syrupy beer. Not hoppy at all. Dark orange pour. Thick and hazy. Light tan head. Lots of caramel malt and sugar. Some citrus notes. A bit of bitter bite on the end, but really very little hops. Heavy, sweet and sticky. Way too sweet.

thornecb (5123) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Pours deep hazy amber into a snifter. Off-white head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing to mottle surface. Soft, yet nicely carbonated with sweet grass and resin aromas. Bitter resin upfront turning to dark caramel and back to grapefruit in the lasting finish.
