3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja. Pours golden amber with a small head that dissipates rather quickly. Leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is very fresh, full of tropical fruits and blossoming hops - feels relatively sweet. Taste has some citrus at first, rather fruity. Later it changes into stronger hop bitterness, oils come out and pine needles start stinging. I actually like the mouthfeel - it is not too heavy but rather light, still well balanced and not overly hoppy. Aftertaste lasts long and is focused around grapefruit seed bitterness. Nice IPA - and from Austria!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Forte aroma di frutta tropicale. Al palato, ad un inizio maltato e caramellato, fa seguire una buona luppolatura e secchezza finale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy gold. The nose is strong, fresh and fruity. The taste complex, I got a different note with every sip, but itís nicely balanced and smooth. From lychees to elder flowers to peaches, malt and a nice underlying bitterness. It stays with you fir some time.
I had this in a smoky bar and i wonder how it would be at home. The guess is: even more complex. Consider me a fan!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from Za popenít, Ljubljana (Ä2.80):
A light but quite bitter IPA that came with a lot of hops & a strong floral taste that boasted plenty of flavour. The beer had a nice kick to it although there wasnít too much alcohol showing & it seemed fresh, easy to drink & most importantly, it was an enjoyable beer. Not quite a standout offering but certainly one worth trying if you happen across it on your travels.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. A powerful IPA indeed, but unfortunately the nose canít keep quite up and the backbone feels rather thin compared to the heavy hops. Still a very good take on an IPA, though!
