I don't understand why this beer is marked "retired"; I bought it recently, and it's not marked as being retired on the brewery's home page. Anyways: It's a great, strong+dry IPA, with a discreet fruity touch.

Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is slightly dank, grassy with some overripe stonefruits. Taste starts sweet and fruity but gets quickly bitter and dank with some chives, lovage and dill. Body is medium with a good amount of carbonation. Aftertaste is quite bitter. Quite nice, dank IPA overall.

Pours pale amber with a small head.
Nose shows pine, lemon custard and caramel. Pretty potent.
Very similar flavours. Very aggressive with a sharp, biting bitterness. More pine and soft sorachi ace notes. Some very faint clean malt but the bitterness rules this one.
Very oily mouthfeel. Too oily.

Bottle: Poured a deep beige color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit hops with nice fruity notes and limited bitterness is very enjoyable. Taste is also a mix between some dry pale malt notes with some citrusy and grapefruit forward hops with some limited bitterness. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very enjoyable beer with nice hops presence and limited bitterness.

Golden honey, opaque and quite light for an IPA. Sudsy white head falls relatively fast with minimal lacing and a half-centimetre raised ring. Looks more like a sour than an IPA.

Very sweaty, oniony, vinegary hops initially. Odd chalky, lemon rindy and doughy yeast characteristics with some booze behind it. Hardly appetising.

More bizarre minty, chalky, lemon sherbet action joined by a strong and clean leafy, eucalyptus bitterness. The lack of fruit or pine character is very unorthodox to this palate at least, but it all starts to grow on me.

Medium bodied, with a dry, metallic, bitter finish

This one is out of the box. Intrigues with its eccentricities for a moment, but overall it's perilously close to a train wreck.

A clear golden brew, a high off-white head leaving good lacing, medium curtains.

Smelling fresh of grass and citric fruits. Grape-fruit and lime.

Starting with some sweet nuances, white bread and toffee, then lemon marmalade, grape-fruit peel and seed. Very bitter.

Medium carbonation, smooth and soft, a medium body and dry finish.

A very hoppy and bitter APA, but not too ...

Beautiful West coast ipa with a lot of mango and passion aroma and a dry finish. Highly recommended!

The colour is yellow (6 EBC), the liquid is clear. The finger thick white head sinks very slowly, it leaves thick lacing on the glass.

The smell is hoppy with an aggressive bitterness. Green berries, flowers, lemons, grapefruits and grains. It is dry with some bread and hints of alcohol.

The taste is dry and bitter. It is completely hop-centric. Grapefruits, orange peels, green bananas, unripe berries and a touch of beef-stock. The body is quite light. The aftertaste is dry and bitter, too. Green flavours, balancing clean sweetness. A touch of cream in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong, lits of small fresh short lived bubbles.

A surprisingly dry and pale AIPA. Fresh and clean, but not the most complex one I have had.

A little hazy, orange colored beer with a three finger high head. A lot of lacing on the glass!

Nose: Citrus, orange marmelade, biscuit, tropical fruit, pineapple, butter, whipped cream, grass and resin.
Taste: Grapefruit, orange cest, resin, pine, marmelade, and sweet malt.
Body: Medium body, great bitterness!

From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Technobabylon. Great resinous body. Tropical fruits in aroma and lots of orange in taste. From a collaboration between these 2 great breweries nothing bad could surge.
