Received as a free gift by way of the brewers.

At five weeks old, I was not expecting much from this bottle, but I was pleasantly surprised by its flavor and overall delivery.

Everything on this beer is well done and simple, with a nice hop profile and a solid malt build. A good mix of dank bitterness and piney sweetness.

If this beer was widely available in the US, I think it would be garnering a lot more buzz.

Smelled a bit funky. Not that impressive.

Clean well executed drinkable double ipa, if not a bit boozy. Good bitterness without erasing my palate. Thanks Bourne. A bit of brown colour. Good nose.

served on tap at La Vestiare.

pours clear straw yellow with a foamy white head. surprised how pale this is - maybe the room was a tad dark.

smells of dank hops, citrus, slgith sweetness, and slight pine. nice smell.

tastes of citrus, slight pine and dank hops, mixed with a nice grassy note on the middle of the tongue. reflects the aroma very nicely. full mouthfeel.

overall, a nice double IPA. well balanced between dank/sweeter notes, not incredibly bitter and very easy drinking.

Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a generous foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of citrus hoppy notes with nice floral undertones. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with huge floral undertones and lightly sweet finish. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Very nice IIPA with limited residual sugars notes but maybe fell a bit short in highlighting one particular hops by mixing some many together.

Bottle from Papat444. Many thanks! Bottled either August 12 or 22, hard to read. Fresh in any event.

An absurdly large variety of hops (10!) come together much more nicely than I feared on reading the label. All of the typical IPA flavours are there to some extent: citrus fruit, tropical fruit and a good dose of pine, particularly in the finish. Caramel malts provide a good backbone. Fairly bitter, but not overwhelmingly. This is a big-flavoured DIPA, but it is melded together quite well. Very tasty and I am glad to have been able to try it! Assuming they are able to regularly acquire all the hop varietals required to brew this, it should really become a more regularly appearing beer.

Strong citrus aroma, oily yet smooth flavor with mango and pineapple. Bitterness is kept low.
