Very clear orange hue with bright white head. lots of citrus and grapefruit on the nose. little thinner in body than most ipas but very brisk and carbonated. almost refreshing thin biscuit malt presence up front followed by tropical fruit and ends with a very dry and clean bitterness. bitterness is nice and big. flavors are layered in an odd way but otherwise its pretty straightforward for an ipa except for the mouthfeel. some odd flavors of lemongrass and herbs if you dig for them. tries to be complex but falls slightly short and is arranged in an odd matter. thins out on the swallow. different though. worth a try would. be a good summer ipa.

Beer bottle (35.5 cl.) purchased from Le Souffleur de Bières, and tasted in 2012.

Appearance : amber color, with white foamy head.
Smell : hoppy and grassy aromas.
Taste and mouthfeel : sweet malty with notes of hops and grass, leading to a dry bitter finish.
Drinkability : a good beer in the style American IPA.
