AssKicker (826) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUL 6, 2017
Version avec les houblons Nugget, Ereka! et Enigma. Couleur ambrée un poil trouble, mousse légère et vite dissipée. Nez agréable sur le résineux et le caramel. L’amertume est virulente d’entrée de jeu, ce qui peut paraître assez surprenant pour une Double IPA. Cette amertume est encore davantage poussée en fin de bouche, et perdure bien bien longtemps sur la langue. En terme d’arômes, c’est tout d’abord le caramel qui s’exprime avant de laisser place à des notes herbacées bien nettes. En se réchauffant elle devient moins agressive et fini par s’arrondir quelque peu. Sympa.

alex_leit (5785) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUN 14, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy, brownish-amber. Aroma: sweet, nectar, malt, candy, fruit, raisins. Taste: sweetish, raisins, sugar candies, citrus, fruit, good hop bitterness.
