3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into a teku glass looks very dark cloudy brown with lighter color in the rims, practically no head despite an aggressive pour.
The nose shows a lot of sweet malts with a very light hop background.
The palate is quite light bodied with aggressive carbonation. The first impression is a balanced malt sweetness that transitions into a sharp IPA bitterness at the end. Seems to drink like a cross between an American IPA and a Belgian Ale. Nonetheless, quite interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy/cloudy amber/brown color, huge off white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, malts. Taste of citrus, mango and malts. Medium body, soft carbonation. Very bitter finish. Overall it’s very good, but it lacks body to be among the best.

Really nice hazy orange colour with a thin head. Aroma is a bit of grass and a bit of motor oil. Taste is grassy, hops, bitterness, and somewhat floral. Great IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy mahogany color, medium sized fluffy off-white head. Aroma is hops, caramel, hints of alcohol. Taste is bitter as hell, but the problems is that it is unbalanced. Hops and honey. Long bitter finish. I found this hard to drink.

Un nez des plus fleuri, digne des meilleurs IPA. Une robe ambrée avec une fine mousse. En bouche c’est complexe, d’abord une note fruitée (apparemment pamplemousse), puis cette amertume qui s’impose sur la fin.

Whoaw! What a great Belgian IPA... I had never tried it before and was very surprised... Hazy brown-orange colour. The nose is great, with a hoppy, flowery apricot smell. The taste that follows is amazing. Bitterness perfectly balanced. Only down side, I thought it’s a tiny bit too sweet... If not, it would be perfect!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark orange colour, a head is big and blond. The nose has tropical fruits, mangos and grapefruits, some pine needles, not much of sweetness. Taste is strongly grapefruity, some fruits, sourness of citrusfruits. The bitterness is strong and long lasting. Nice sweetness, read as not too much. Medium+ bodied, strong carbonation. Succesfully DIPA, not too sweet and strong bitterness, balanced.

MOusse diaprait vite, peu de lacing.
Nez houblon américain, résineux surtout. Belle amertume. Bonne rondeur accompagne les sucres, on ne sent pas l’alcool. Peut-être un peu légère pour une "imperial".
