COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
We pushed our small brewery right to the limit to create this bad boy. We selected half a dozen of our favourite American hops, grown in the Yakima Valley, Washington State, and added bucket loads of each. With twice the hop rate of most of our other beers, it really is very hoppy indeed.

Belle couleur acajou pour cette IPA lgrement trouble avec une mousse fine ivoire qui disparat assez vite. Nez la hauteur des diffrents houblons qui la compose : Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook, Citra et Summit Expect, rien que a ! On retrouve de beaux agrumes, autour du pamplemousse et de lorange principalement, mais aussi les fleurs et du fruit en plus du malt : rose, jasmin, bergamote, verveine, ananas, abricot, pche, caramel, sucre candi, cassonade, goyave, litchi, mangue, banane, chocolat au lait, amande, pain et croissant chauds... Nez extrmement exquis, gourmand et complexe. Superbe. La carbonatation est moyenne, la texture ronde avec du corps, les sucres rsiduels sont lgers, la levure est nette avec des saveurs de sous-bois assez prsentes, lalcool efficace et lamertume vive lattaque avec une trs belle longueur. La bouche est plus classique et moins complexe que le nez mais rvle de belles flaveurs de malt et de crales (orge et bl). Le final laisse une bonne mche sur la langue, quelques sucres, les flaveurs de malts, les notes boiss et lamertume lancinante. Une excellente IPA aux accents Amricains brasse en Angleterre. Un duo gagnant quand il sagit de faire de bonnes IPA... Bouteille 56.8cl, V&B Grenoble.

Pours murky amber with small white head. Medium carbonation. Aromas of bread, malt and bitter hops, perhaps bitter oranges. Taste is citrus hop and pine with a decent malt backbone and a touch of grapefruit, perhaps nectarine. Good mouth feel with a big bitter finish and slight alcohol burn
