Nice and hoppy. Nothing new, but still good. A decent alcohol content, and it’s always nice to try something new from Hop Valley.

corkyrory66 (2000) - BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2017
Ipa du type northwest américain, brassée avec 8 houblons. Niveau abv de 6,3% , et ebu de 70. Mon exemplaire n’avait pas de date, et ce n’est pas rare aux Etats-Unis !! Couleur doré soutenu à reflets ambrés, avec un léger voile. Bulles fines, en fontaine centrale, pas très nombreuses. Mousse blanche, à fins flocons, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de lichee, pointe de résine, jasmin, orange. 1ère bouche souple, au bel ensemble houblon/fruit/résine. Arrière-bouche sur lichee, résine, et une amertume un peu verte. 2ème au bel ensemble encore, mais l’harmonie n’est pas au top. Arrière-bouche un peu trop résineuse. 3ème aux saveurs plus fondues sur les fruits exotiques. Arrière-bouche longue, très agréable. Longueur très jolie, mais pas au top de l’harmonie. Texture souple sans être dense. Jambes fines, longues. Levure souple, résineuse, belle ligne. Alcool correct, on doute pourtant de son action sur la longueur. Finale plutôt discrète. CONCLSUION : on pourrait dire de cette bière qu’elle surfe sur la vague des ipa, pour proposer un joli produit mais loin de l’étoile proxima (du centaure ...)(8/3/8/3/16)
