On tap at Jónás Kézműves Sörház Budapest. Probably this is the right one because on the board was written just Hangover IPA. Dark amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, light honey and hops in the nose. Quite strong herbal hoppy and light fruity with intensive strong bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.

At Szimpla Kavezó, thanks Gergely for pointing it out to me! Poured a misty amber-red body with an off white head. Looks lovely. Gum, sweetish malty taste, nice grainy notes and aromatics. The taste... ok, I figured that my palate was bust, but further tasting revealed it wasn’t. However, I WILL rerate it as soon as possible. Mild, creamy malty taste, carrying light notes of orange, but not as aromatic, slightly husky, dry overall. Did I get the right beer?! Again, will rerate asap.

Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Kinézetre nagyon hasonlít a skót punkok klasszikusához a 5am Saint-hez, viszont annál sokkal kevésbé édeskés, jóval komlósabb,fenyősebb, kiegyensúlyozottabb, veszettül itatja magát. Utóízében sem jelentkezik az a karamellás édesség, mint az említett sörben. Egy baja van neki, nagyon alattomosan tudja elgáncsolni az embert olyan módon, hogy utána állva tud tőle aludni, méghozzá síugró pózban! Megint nagyot alkotott Armando mester!

inbirraveritas (1258) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 17, 2014
Draught. Opal reddish amber colour, medium sized yellowish head. Smell ruled by tropical fruits. Tasteing starts with mild caramel and fruits makeing in the middle place for distinct resin, pine and herbs underpainted gently by honey, flowers and alcohol, mouthfeel is slick. Long grapefruit bomb finish escorted by herbs and warming alcohol. Complex and well made.in the regular quality.

Lore (1227) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 13, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 reddish mahogany colour, huge, long lasting yellowish head - it appears as a chritmas beer should; aroma of citrusses, mostly grapefruit and orange peel, pine resin, and honey-like maltyness; taste is, as always in case of Armando’s beers, fully dominated by hoppy bitterness (citrussy and piney notes), however maltyness can also be felt; excellent beer for Christmas original score:8/5/9/4/17 - 4.3 re-rated on 17 Jan: ok, maybe I’m a bit biased in case of Armando’s beers (I really appreciate his mission providing us, I mean Hungarian beer-fans, with the highest quality beers from the whole World and brewing amazing beers and I admire his work), but this beer is really perfect...what a pity that it can’t be enjoyed by beer-fans outside Hungary!

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Special edition hand-crafted bottle at home, many many thanks to the master brewer armando629 for sending some love to the low countries :-) Poured cloudy, with an amber color and a tan, lacing head. Syrupy sweet nose with fruits like apples, grapes, honey, caramel and spices, but with subtle hints of a bit citrus, hops and alcohol as well, just to balance it all out. First sip brings tons of hops, more hops, and a dry finish of more hops. Almost tarty. Lasting dry, bitter aftertaste. Certainly xmasy in the aroma, but a hardcore bitter IPA baseline. Excellent!

kapusil (646) - HUNGARY - DEC 17, 2013
On tap. A bit murky reddish body with a light beige head. Huge caramel notes with toast, honey and piny, citrusy, grassy hops. Taste is like the aroma, only it has mire hop character. It’s very similar to the original Grabanc, but it has more caramel sweetness to it and also more hop flavor and bitterness. Awesome beer.

davidtjm (577) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2014
Tap at Hopfenreich. Pour is murky gold with a foamy head, aroma is fruity, sweet. Taste is fruity, sweet, bitterness, long bitter finish. Nice
