On tap at les berthoms in Grenoble. Good Ipa with a big bitterness. Citrus flavor. A bit sweet but balanced. It's a bold beer but nothing over the top

A 330ml bottle brought from locally brought from Dunnels. Pours a hazy amber colour, with medium creamy white head and leaves lacing. Aromas is of mandarin, grapefruit, cereal, spicy hops with some floral and bready aromas. The taste has much of the same but also a malty caramel side followed by a spicy hopped bitterness in the finish.

330ml bottle served in a shaker pint. Bottled 15FEB16; BB 15NOV16 indicated on the label. Pours a dull straw gold with a slightly hazy clarity and a half inch off-white head that eventually settles into a tight 1/8th inch cap. Swaths and slashes of lacing are revealed during the tasting. Nice nose - delicate floral and citrus notes. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of pith, a light biscuity quality and a slight medicinal presence at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a carbonation just shy of crisp and a light acidity. Overall, a pretty nice beer.

Pours a rich, amber colour. Smells of citrus hops and faint malts. Slight sweet taste, balanced hops and malts, hints of citrus, earthy notes at the end. Quite balanced and crisp.

**Had it on draught and cask.
