3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Slightly unclear orange color, huge thick white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts and quite fruity with fruity hops and tropical fruit influences. Taste malts, light to moderately hoppy, lightly floral, some fruit hops and general fruityness but not as clearly present as in the aroma. Soft bitterness, easy drinkable, suitable carbonation. Decent. [Note: probably way better when fresh, unfortunately I had a bottle with a best before date of July 2015].

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a finger and half of head on a hazy dark straw body.
The aroma is sappy pine with some nice pineapple and mango.
The taste has a strong pine bitterness upfront, then mellows out toward the end.
The texture is crisp.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Nice darker pour of off yellow. Taste is initially a really big dull old ipa thud, borders on viscous. Who wants a big ipa hoppy bitter beer without the alky? Why punish eyrself? If you want a soft beer without the smoothness? What-ev.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, with Ribafish, at O’Hara Zagreb (enormous thanks Marin & co!). Poured a lovely clear amber body with a thick, quite big white head. Candied peach aroma, slightly more malty than expected, sugary, some lovely peach tea and dry figs. Very interesting. Lighter, and much more as expected hop dominated taste, herbal, peachy, slightly sweetish, notes of grapefruit, vague herbal tartness. Lovely aromatics really. A very good Session IPA, and a great addition to the Croatian market.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange looking with an off-white head. Hoppy, floral, fruity nose, intense, makes you want for more. taste is fruity, some hops, but get bit lost in between, some mature malt sweetness. Balanced, but sweet malt finish. Lacks some powder with a reason. Still IPA it is, good what do I love a session.... If only I was on the west coast....
