beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, - NOV 17, 2012
Cloudy yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma of herbal, citrusy hops and yeast. Flavor of herbal, citrusy hops and yeast with a dry, bitter finish. Light body with a creamy texture and lively carbonation.

DijkBier (180) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2016
Dark-golden pour with a beautiful foamy near-white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, malty .Taste is medium sweet (some tropical fruit), little malts, slight bitterness; but all quite mild. Nice beer, announced as "triple IPA", but certainly not an IPA at all, so lets consider it an OK triple.

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur abricot, trouble, mousse abondante de belle tenue. Une IPA trs douce, fleurie, amertume contenue. Une trs belle longueur en bouche, carbonnation agrable.

Belle robe orange avec une jolie mousse blanche persistante. Le nez offre des armes dagrumes bien doss.Le got est trs agrable avec des notes fraches de crales .Larrire bouche nous laisse sur une amertume plaisante. Bire trs agrablement surprenante pour une IPA: excellente!!!

appiantiqua (112) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 22, 2016
Gote dans un verre "La Goudale". Robe orange clair un peu trouble avec une bonne carbonatation et surmonte dune belle mousse blanche persistante. Le nez est sur un plaisant mlange dagrumes avec une note poivre sans intensit trop prononce. Le got est tout aussi agrable : fracheur et ajout dune touche de crales et de fruits jaunes. La finale est de longueur moyenne sur lamertume. Pas vraiment une IPA mais une bire de grande qualit trs russie.

Me like. Nice golden beer with nice head. Light flowery-fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel, sharpish finish. Aftertaste turns milder but lasts.

PlutonowyMan (556) - POLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Kolor lekko bursztynowy, prawie klarowny, od gry piwo przykrywa spora, bia?a piana, raczej o ?redniej ?ywotno?ci z kiepskim zdobieniem. Aromat to s?odowo??, delikatne nuty chmielowe, raczej trawiaste i wytrawne. Bardzo delikatnie ale jednak, rozpuszczalnik. Smak nie przynosi niczego nowego, jak wy?ej, s?odowo??, odrobina wytrawno?ci i trawiastych nut chmielowych. Goryczka to zdecydowanie plus tego piwa, wyra?na i d?uga, wysycenie wysokie. kolejny plus to idealnie schowany alkohol.

Bill Becker (850) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Hazy pale yellow colour, long lasting foam. No date of any kind on the 750mL bottle. Oh, and its an oozer. Smells of bubblegum, yeast, candi sugar, a touch of banana. Taste reflects the smell but much milder than what I expected. Considering the ample abv. Dont get me wrong. Its a nice drop but shows up a tad under when it comes to value for the money. Worthy of a try.

JPDIPSO (5796) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Light straw color, with a bit of fish food. moderate sized, diminishing white head. Aromas of light pale malt and floral hops. Flavors are moderately sweet, lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Slightly acidic. 8/10

Bottle at Porte Noire. Delicious exotic hop tart with pulpy notes of pineapple and papaya, clean finish, no trace of alcohol. A tasty surprise.
