3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
.33l bottle from Only Good Beer in Budapest. Gushing pour, with huge (but pretty) tannish head. Big juicy hop aroma, a little less fresh than I’d like. Body goes quite bitter with dry yeast. Lots of sediment and quite hazy, deep orange body. Pineapple, some lemon zest, hits some nice notes. Fantastic IPA out of Hungary, probably the best beer from here that I’ve tried.

A "hopfanatikus" Tamás barátunk támadása az ízlelőbimbók ellen. Elég gyümölcsösen kezdi a dolgot a szárnyas lény, jön egy kis citrus és sajt a belga élesztővel, grapefruit, fenyőgyanta, aztán már harap is azokkal az éles komlófogakkal. Érezni ezen is, hogy ebből sem sajnálták az anyagot, lapátoltak bele rendesen. Igen keserű és száraz a vége csak felkészült embereknek ajánlható!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
23/06 A 0.33 l bottle courtesy of Marko, great thanks for sharing! It poured hazy orange to brown body with small head. Fine rich aroma of fruit and caramel malts, balanced with nice orange or grapefruit hops. Flavor was a bit lighter than expected, although very tasty when used to it. Balanced between sweet malt like figs, biscuit, caramel and even chocolate and nice orange and herbal hops it basically tastes like a nice jaffa cake. Not very rich in body, just average so, but has very pleasant qualities which resulted in nice long tasty finish, biscuit with dry herbal bitterness. Lot of things here indeed. Wonderful, very close to the first rating of four in over a year!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
ö.33 bottle collected at the 3rd Főzdefeszt, consumed after 6 weeks or so. (Actually there was another bottle consumed a couple of weeks earlier. That one tasted better and more complex. I tried to "average" the two, but I am writing this rating after the second taste so that has stronger weight in the scores...). Nice, sweetish fruity aroma, very strong in he first bottle, much less in the second. Head is fairly thick, foam tastes creamy and bittersweet. Color is very dark amber. Mild carbonation, silky, creamy taste. Strong fruity bitterness, maybe mandarin or fresh banana. Definite sweet component fighting with the bitterness, maybe a bit syrupy in the end. Aftertaste is mildly bitter, lasts long. A very nice effort, the sweetness could be a bit weaker and he whole composition a bit wilder, but still very promising!
