Le Trou Du Diable Les Quatres Surfeurs De L’Apocalypso American IPA at 6.5% ABV
Pours a slightly hazy straw with two fingers of light fluffy head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and moderate lacing. Nose is piney hops and a little tropical fruit, light malt. Taste is balanced, medium sweet and bitter. Medium to full body, slightly sticky, with a lingering bitter, slightly spicy and gently warming finish.
Well, that’s quite pleasant! Nice balance of the malt and the hops, with just enough fullness in the body to carry off the higher ABV. Sticky without being cloying, with a little bit of spicy pepper in the finish. Not quite a sunny day thirst quencher, but not a long way away from that, either. You could do a lot worse than this!
