by Brasserie La Debauche

It almost seems disingenuous to talk about the label art in the tasting notes for a beer, but it is a feature of all the La Debauche beers.  Often subtle, and usually with a cultural reference, there is a lot of effort that goes into these images.

This can pays homage to French poet, novelist and dramatist Victor Hugo, who was renowned as France’s most important French romantic writers of the mid 19th-century, creator of Les Miserables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.  

It is a passage from a group of poems titled Contemplations that inspires this image:  "See my prayer still in your skies like a star, And my love always like a dog at your feet."

Love being like a trusty hound?  The reliable and trusted beer style?

It is a very decent IPA.  A slightly hazy straw colour, with loads of mango and citrus in both the aroma and taste.  A light body with a grassy pine middle, it finishes really quite dry and reasonably bitter.
