One of my haul from the Cave à bulles, Paris France location:

Plein Lune Aubeloun 7%

A: Tawny orance color with an abundance of yeast floaties. (I did not swirl or shake before pouring)

S: Citrusy hops and grapefruit with a delicate toffee smell

T: Malt pops out at the front, followed by lemon/lime hops and a tart bitter finish

M: Smooth coating of resin with a perfect amount of carbonation to but the sticky

O: Although not exactly the "Full Moon," I'm looking for in an IPA, Plein Lune Aubeloun delivers a great kick of citrus hops and throat choke bitterness reserved for the highest in drinking pleasures. Kudos to the brew team, I Brasserie Pleine Lune line.
