4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Beautiful, strong and hoppy aroma, mostly tropical fruits, not only grapefruity notes, but also mango, kiwi, sweet smell of pomelo; really great one.
Pale, cloudy with lasting, stiff, foamy head that didn’t dissappear untill last sip. First taste is reflection of how it smells, first you get the whole fruity thing - giant kick packed with sweet fruits and some malty, caramel notes. Finish is very bitter, a bit astringing, nonetheless it’s a great beer overall, my favourite IPA for now I guess.

Bottle in a field near Brno. Sunset colored pour. Aroma of fruity hops, resin, citrus, pine and slightly spicy. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity hops and very clean. Well balanced and well drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Mild hop notes on the nose, caramel malts, resin and hay. Caramel malts and resinous hops on the flavor, some mild grassy notes also. Doesn’t feel as fresh as the King of Hops even though the same bbe. A bit of a disappointment.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Pours a golden copper colour with a white large foamy head. Aroma of citrus, berries, mango and grains. Flavour of harsh sweet grainy maltiness, rough grassy bitterness, some floral notes, berries and citrus. Medium bodied and a rough bitter finish. Harsh and unbalanced. Maybe not as fresh as it should be.

Tap (Chmielarnia, Warsaw)
Dull aroma, just some sweet malts, a bit spicy. Smooth palate, soft carbonation, a bit flat. Sweet malts, jammy fruity hops. Sickly. Kind of off, I guess. At least very very tired. Hops nearly cover the sins, as it’s nicely bitter.

Drank a month after the expiration date. Nice white head with beautiful lacing staying on the glass after a very long time. Golden, a little hazy probably because of the production date. Aroma - mostly white fruit and malty, lots of grapes, a hint of melon. Taste very similar to aroma with grapefruity, quite high bitterness. Very nice. Sweetness isn’t to high, and could counteract the hops a little more. A little too fizzy, at least for me. Very drinkable, and refreshing. Recommended for both people starting to look for something different than international lagers, and for old hopheads. Really nice beer overall.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great aroma - mostly exotic fruits (pineapple and mango, I think), with a little bit of reisin, which mesh nicely with the flavour. Visually a bit disappointing - head disappears quite quick and it seems to be a little too pale in color - but it makes it up with abundance of virtues in flavur and aroma departments. Very hoppy, although the bitterness doesn’t linger for too long, which is a good thing.
