Double ipa non filtre dun niveau abv respectable de 8,6 %. Le brasseur donne une citation de Jim Harrison en complment: une seule bouteille de bire suffit engendrer un flot de grandes penses .... Nous sommes daccord avec lui, et nous embotons le pas en dgustant ce breuvage, et en donnant nos penses en conclusion ... Couleur ambre cuivr trs joli. Clart nette. Bulles trs fines en fontaine centrale, par centaines, bien vives. Mousse beige clair avec une magnifique texture de blanc duf battu en haut, superbe. Armes de mat grill, pointe de cassonade, figue, chtaigne, touche de cassis. 1re bouche la superbe texture veloute, et la trs grande entame malt/houblon , avec des pices. Arrire-bouche dense, trs malte, au fort caractre. 2me au grand ensemble malt/houblon, avec une touche de bois exotique. Arrire-bouche trs riche, complexe. 3me o le ct exotique se dveloppe encore vers le tabac brun, la rsine oliban. Arrire-bouche forte, dense, capiteuse. Longueur qui donne de grandes nuances de malt grill, houblon vert, feuilles dautomne, avoine, girofle, cpre. Jambes fines, trs groupes, importantes. Levure prcise, pointue, de caractre, grande ligne. Alcool fort, bien progressif, il dveloppe les saveurs de faon extraordinaire. Finale qui donne encore dautres choses dont la myrrhe et la rsine oliban. CONCLUSION: double ipa trs originale, dont le malt grill vient complter de faon trs adquate les houblons, et le fort potentiel abv travaille tout cela dans une grande harmonie. Du bel ouvrage, du savant ouvrage, du grandiose ouvrage. Ce nest assurment pas une bire de couillon, disait Dalva, la femme-ourse ...

LordCrabapple (109) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
This beer has a thick white head, which surprised me, and is very, very hazy. Super-hoppy bitterness combines with thick body, and good malt sweetness to make an interesting, wonderfully rich sipper. The powerful malt eases the bitterness somewhat. Overall, a rather rugged, manly beer, rough yet with some sophistication.

Dobre tresciwe i o pelnym slodowym smaku z wyraznym wytrawnym zakonczeniem. Chmiele tu goruja i poteguja. Troche takze wyczuwa sie alkochol i przede wszystkim mocna slodowosc. Ale po przelknieciu naprawde przemila goryczkowa uczta i pozostawiony ten posmak na dlugo. Spora piana nawet trwala kolor ciemnej przybrudzonej pomaranczy. Bardzo metne

zacgillbanks (4787) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A cloudy orange-amber coloured beer that pours with a very large foamy white head. It has bitter orange and peppery hop flavours, raspberry and red fruity notes followed by citrus on the spicy toffee, vanilla and peppery finish. Excellent!

A french Imperial IPA which immediatly smacks you in the face with its fresh, strong and somehow even spicey hoppy aroma. A wonderful treat and a real special (and fresh) IPA. Must be in my top 10 of favorite IPAs.

ignorant (113) - madrid, SPAIN - MAR 30, 2016
Slightly cloudy yellow with white foam appreciable layer that leaves some loop. maltose candy and biscuit, and a blanket of pine and resins (perhaps also some grapefruit) that play on the palate sensations and bitter resinous characteristics of an IPA, complemented with notes and spicy wild plants. With a dry, bitter and earthy end, leaves a long lasting refreshing mouthfeel,
