Bottle. Massive hop aroma (as expected). Big thick mouthfeel and the malt perfectly balances the bitterness. Very good

Grzesiek79 (3151) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Dobre tresciwe i przede wszystkim cudownie pachnace swiezutkimi rozowymi grejfrutami. Piana srednia ale ladnie oblepiajaca szklo. Spora dawka chmieli, chyba mojego ulubionego wyczulem nelsona, wszystko to slodowe i pyszne. niesamowicie tresciwe, piwo sprawia wrazenie lekko ciezkiego. Degustacyjne piwo o kolorze ciemnej przykurzonej pomaranczy.
