COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Au commencement, tout nous semble paisible : se prsente nous une rousse au col blanc tenace, lapparence plutt commune. Mais dj, lapproche du nez nous vient le pressentiment que la chute sera violente. En bouche, on se laisse dabord berner par un lger sucre caramlis rapidement envahi par une contre-attaque vive et rapide de houblon. Une amertume verte et intense nous envahit de toute part tandis que le petit got de sucre caramlis soutient un quilibre avec une dlicieuse finale prenant lallure de noisettes.

VertBaconStrips (2341) - Blerkablerka, - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle courtesy of SlovakSniper. Poured out an amazingly filthy amber full of ultra fine sediment and a crazy ass light tan foam up that has pretty much ruined my glass. The initial aroma was a bit different than I expected (that is after I discovered this was as IPA) but things have settled down now. The aroma is pretty strong and in my face. Huge sweet fruits - nectarine, orange candy, pineapple that reminds me of the ooooold Pop Shoppe pineapple pop we used to get at home on occasion when I was little. Caramel and floral with a light spice, peaches and rrgf and feet. Way way too much hard foamy carbonation going on here. Pretty good taste. Big ass bitterness. Peaches, caramel, bread crusts, perma-bitterness, peach, nectarine, light pine, more bitterness, bit of herb, pretty good and a bit something something. Long orange fruit related finish but just way to much carbonation. Pretty good IPA.

La Morsure from Le Trou du Diablo, was one of my first IPAs. Another mash of cultures, this beer is an American IPA with a strong malt character that overpowers the hops to some degree. Still quite citrusy (grapefruit, orange) and smooth as silk. An excellent beer.

PowY (332) - AUSTRIA - NOV 20, 2016
From bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow with a white head. Hoppy aroma of citric fruits. Medium body with a soft carbonation, a light sweetness and a light to medium bitterness. Flavor of light malts, a little alcoholic and fruity with mango, lemon, papaya - ripe sweet fruits.

VDuquerroux (1340) - Airvault, FRANCE - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle, 375mL. Home. A sparkling orange-yellow clear beer with a medium white head ; average retention. Fruits (tropical fruits, blackberry), light caramel, resin/ Medium sweet, round, medium dry bitter, light warming background. Medium body, thin texture quite oily, average carbonation, dry resinous bitter lasting finish. Overall, enjoyable ; really (too) hoppy in a good way (fruits+>caramel) and also a bad way (spicy dry resinous "burning" finish).

Agtronic (29) - Laval, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2016
Pours a hazy pale gold, with lots of particulate, reminiscent of homebrewed beer. Nose is interesting and reveals hints of honey, tropical fruit & floral hops. Oddly enough, it reminds of German lagers and American IPA at the same time. Taste is malty sweet with good bitterness and wonderful hop flavors. Not as bitter as some other examples. Nice balance of malt and hop flavors. Some yeast character in there as well, which adds to complexity. Finish is more malty than it is dry / bitter. Mouthfeel is medium-full. Wonderful beer. Really enjoy the complexity. A nice change from the standard hop bombs I enjoy.

On tap @ Patricks. Clear golden body with a medium sized, lacing white head. Aroma has malt and mild berries/grapes, slightly spicy. Flavor is smooth malt, light caramel, moderate fruits and berries. OK bitterness. Medium body and average aftertaste with more bitterness. Not the most typical IPA, but sure a drinkable one.

Hazy light copper body, medium white head. Aroma of caramel, exotic fruits, candied/dried fruits, spicies, sweet flowers. Flavours if caramel, ripe Exotic fruits, slightly piney with a medium bitter backbone. Some spicies too. Medium strong bitter dry finish with caramel and pine. Balanced and round beer with an interesting and different nose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (5102) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2016
Kveldens tredje fra planke p Le Trou du Diable krankupp p Cirkus (Stavanger) sep-16: lett uklar lys kobbergylden med fint skum som varer. Alle de fire pale ales jeg smakte hadde noen fellestrekk: en nrmest cremet munnflelse, balanserte smaksinntrykk og myk, behagelig avslutning. S variasjonene l i humleprofilene. Deilige l alle fire, dog uten vre minneverdige. Fruktig anslag med appelsinmarmelade, honning, blomster og karamell. Myk bitterhet i avslutningen, og lang, deilig ettersmak. Synd at de olfaktoriske evnene mine var sterkt reduserte av forkjlelse.

Hazy gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Mild creamy sweetness from the malts. Orangy hops, touches of hop spice and pine. Some citric peel bitterness on the finish. Decent. Bottle from the back of the cellar so has held up well.
