UPDATED: NOV 30, 2018 Que de mousse à l'ouverture de la bouteille après un psschit sonore. Et l'attente qu'elle retombe est interminable. Ambrée trouble avec des arômes de résine et d'agrumes avec des notes de caramel, rôti et bois. Très typée et très amère, manque de complexité. Pas mal mais on ne peut vraiment pas servir ça à des amis ! Drinking_77 (232) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - JUL 5, 2018

Translates into "7th Heaven" in English. Coming in a black bottle with some very dark imagery.
On pour got loads of carbonation, bubbling along, taking a little while for it all to settle down. What remained was a very frothy white head with a golden coloured beer.
Some good lacing as you would expect.
Not a bad looking beer when it all settled down.
Smell is malty, with an interesting floral, earthy, and piney smell. Also get the fruits and citrus.
On the taste, got a lots of hops in it hitting you from the start.
Nice big mouthfuls, with the hops lingering on the tongue.
Some fruit in background.
It’s strong enough for sure with the bitterness in the flavours there, but manageable enough to enjoy.
It is a regular IPA but you do get a more pronounced earthy and piney taste that kind of distinguishes it from other IPA's,which I really liked. Stronger to taste.
Interesting beer, not sure what to think about it, has me a bit stumped. It is definitely a very tasty beer and with it some unique tastes for sure, but I would like to try this one again to give a better rating.
Not a bad beer and certainly worth checking out.
