dès l’ ouverture de la bouteille on peut sentir une odeur de bord de mer assez déconcertante .au goût on retrouve une grande complexité de saveurs dominée par l’ amertume

Thick creamy white head. Hazy amber pour. Lovely bitterness. ccex (1351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Reading the label led to dashed high hopes. When I tasted this, I thought it was just another IPA. It’s deceptively simple to drink, despite the 8.5% which will eventually creep up on you. 12 oz. bottle pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with moderate off-white head and very little lacing. Aroma is not obvious, but mostly tropical fruits and floral hops. Taste is bitter, but not excessively so. Body is medium with average carbonation. I would have rated this higher if they didn’t call it "Imperial". jiwookdo (74) - changwon, SOUTH KOREA - FEB 14, 2017

good but not my type Svesse (8731) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2017
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with orange peel, marmalade, apricots, treacle-toffee, grapefruit and fresh floral, citric hops. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of orange peel, apricots, treacle-toffee, grapefruit, caramel, some hay and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Well balanced IIPA, with a generous citric hop presence and lots of caramel/toffee malt. Very nice.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear golden-amber with trace sparkle, less than finger-width foamy white head with poor retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, candied sugar, citrus and light resin. Taste follows aroma. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin, foamy texture, soft-to-average carbonation with mix of sweet and bitter finish. Overall, appearance and palate we profoundly average and the hop mix in aroma and taste is good but flirts gets precariously close to industrial cleanser scent.

Poured from bottle into shaker. Color is a foggy yellow, like three day old piss. Most excellent. A finger’s thickness of head that quickly dissipated left nice lacing. Smell is grapefruit and oranges, hops, mowed lawns, and pure sweet California sunshine. Upon tasting, bitterness sensationalizes my tongue. Slick mouthfeel. Piney hops and clean citrus are not overpowering but utterly drinkable. All in all a sexy IIPA. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 10, 2017
from the Barrel - hazy dark blond beer with a little foam left; nice lace; aroma of almonds, marzipan and oranges; sweet and full-bodied, rounded and clean palate; some bitterness yet very well-integrated; malty, fruity and marzipan finish - pretty nice and dangerously drinkable alex_leit (5018) - Minsk, BELARUS - DEC 30, 2016

Bottle. Sweet and bitter. A very tasty IIPA. Fruit; berries and apples, candied hops and malts. Smooth and biting. Great stuff.
