3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottling date unknown) thanks anyhow minderbinder for sharing bro! pours hazy light golden with a small white cap showing some retention and lacing. melons, citrus - just a tad muted, funked up hops - sorachi-like, woodsy, lightly piney ; in a lean spicy malted base. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily, assertive yet balanced melony-piney-citrusy finish. nicely crafted but far from the top-50.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Minderbinder, thanks a lot breau! Pours a nice golden with a small white head that leaves some nice lacing. Nose is of perfume and sweet fruits, not exactly the hop bomb we expected it to be but not really problematic. Taste is of sweet, overripe fruits and alcohol. It is lightly bitter and and hoppy flavors are a bit dull overall. Mouthfeel is slightly syrupy with its medium body and low to medium carbonation. Overall this was drinkable but a far cry from a top-50 IPA. Not sure how old this bottle was but it was too heavy and not bright enough.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (500 ml). Shared by Minderbinder, thanks! Clear golden/amber with a small bubbly white head and little lacing. Aroma is decently hoppy with melon, light sweetness, caramel, some fruitiness and hints of garbage/rotten fruits. Taste is slightly sweet with caramel, citrus, melon, some fruitiness, light/moderate bitterness and, again, a light but unpleasant presence of garbage/rotten fruits. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. Lingering fruity presence. Not clean enough. Either the travel completely killed this beer or the beer is massively overrated (maybe both), but the beer we drank didn’t belong in the IPA top-50 and that was not even close.

On tap at Piwna Stopa, Poznań. Aroma of American hops: mango, grapefruit and also hints of malt. Taste: fruitiness from the hops, light sweetness from the malts. Beer is medium bodied, lively carbonated. Aftertaste is pleasant, bitter. One of the best IPA from AleBrowar and from Polish brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Barwa jasnego bursztynu, klarowne. Pina biała, drobna i średnia. Ładnie oblepia szkło ale dosyć szybko opada. W aromacie cytrusy, bardzo dużo cytrusów. W smaku oprócz cytrusów czuć lekką słodowość i coś jakby mango. Pomimo deklarowanego 70 IBU goryczka nie jest tak intensywna jak np w Ataku Chmielu. Jednak jest ona bardziej grejpfrutowa niż typowo chmielowa. Ale zostaje na długo co bardzo lubię.
