3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a nonic half pint glass. Dark copper colour, slightly hazy, with a yellow-ish creamy head. Good lacing. Fruity, almost perfumy aroma, clearly hoppy but not as pungent as expected. Quite a lot of caramel and toffee, slightly toasted malts, a hint of soap. Perfect level of bitterness in the mouth, but the same impressions remains: a bit too malty, sticky caramel, a bit of booze, nice lingering fruity aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. On the lines of a red IPA/hoppy Amber ? I don’t know, but it’s kinda different from what I was expecting. So so.

Malty yeasty aroma bit of citrus and zest. Love that rock solid foam. Very bitter that overwhelms very fast. Didn’t get that malty part. Slightly disappointing naked body with not much else.

Bottle. Rich amber, reddish hue. Pined nose, malty, slight soft bready caramels, a little bit of green citrus on nose. Med bodied, sturdy robust bitters, malts, caramels. A really punchy piney ipa thats focused on the bitters and body without the all-too-common aromatic hop shenanigans. Clean, nice.

Perfekcyjna IPA z kategorii "słodszych". Mocna, słodowa podbudowa, gęsta żywiczno-iglakowa treść i świetna, bardzo mocna i jeszcze krótsza cytrusowa goryczka. Po prostu wyznacznik stylu.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
In bottiglia. Colore ambrato quasi ramato, torbida. Schiuma fine persistente ed abbondante. Aroma di vegetale, erbaceo, leggero metallico, caramello, biscotto. Al palato corpo rotondo, gasatura accentuata, sentori di caramello e biscotto seguiti da erbaceo, vegetale non molto gradevole, poco fruttato. Finale secco e balsamico.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle
Clear ruby red to amber colored beer with beige frothy head leaving lacing. Aroma has caramel malts, resin, wood and nuts. Also light orange kind of fruitiness. Flavor has grapefruit and caramel. Palate is quite thick with heavy carbonation and some bitterness. Finish has milder than medium but long bitterness. Aftertaste has caramel, grapefruit and resin. Also light orange peel here. Too much like an amber ale, disappointing for me. Has the old IPA sticky caramel taste even though it’s only 2 months old.

Bottle. Teku glass. Deep amber with light brown, semi-densed, medium head. Poor head retention, medicore head lacing. Medium malty aroma - mainly caramel, light to medium piney, grassy and floral aroma. Taste is medium to high bitter from the whole of degustation. Pretty balanced with malty backbone. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, finish is long, dry and bitter. In overall pretty balanced IPA, mainly based on caramel malts, which is to so goog imho.

Moderate foam. Pleasant floral aroma. Slightly malty mellow IPA tastes welcoming of flowers. Hop bitterness is tasty and sufficiently aggressive to type. Lovely long mellow aftertaste and a little dryness. Good experience of an IPA which certainly meets its type correctness.
