Aromat bardzo przyjemny, aczkolwiek spodziewałem się buchnięcia chmielu. Tego tutaj nie ma, ale wyraźnie wyczuwalne są biała owoce ( melon, liczi może mango), trochę cytrusów i ogólnie "zapachów zielonych". Dużo świeżości. Piękna piana, obfita. Jednak szybko opada, ale za to pięknie oblepia szkło. W smaku dominuje goryczka, w moim odczuciu dwojaka. Najpierw chmiel i ta trawiasto-owocowa, później goryczka alkoholowa. Mocne i niezwykle pijalne piwo.

DomPiwa (39) - FRANCE - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a slightly cloudy amber with thin foamy head. Aroma has notes of citrus and pine. First sip reminiscent of a well brewed British cask ale but the body and tonus soon lets shine the very sophisticated formula which makes for an extremely pleasant drinking experience. A welcoming bitterness is a rewarding after taste. Altogether an excellent discovery.

Buczer (189) - Pabianice, POLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle, pours orange-golden, bit hazy, with white, rather quickly vanishing head. Aroma is resin and citrus, quite intense. Rather high sweetness well balanced with medium+ bitterness. Bit metallic. Medium body as for IIPA. Bitter-sweet-metallic aftertaste.

Pours a cloudy yellow hold, no head. Nice pine and citrus nose. Pretty balanced hop attack, a bit bitter on the finish.

TBone (12535) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle at Gastropub Tuulensuu. Hazy orange color, medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is hop oily, fresh. Medium-bodied. Sweetish hoppy, oily, orange, tropical fruity, piney. Easy to drink to this abv. Perharps a bit too sweet for my liking.

Vaiz (3315) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle in a forest in the Czech Republic. Clear deep golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, slighty sweaty, some pine, resin and slightly spicy. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity hops and smooth with a decent body. Nice solid IPA.

yodapl (51) - POLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Kolor: ciemno-zloty, pol-przejrzysty. Piana: sredio obfita, szybko tworzy obraczkę na pol palca. Aromat: świetny zapach owocow egzotycznych, słodkawy, mango, melon. Dla mnie jeden z lepszych aromatów w IPAch jakichkolwiek. Smak: krótka, srednio-intensywna goryczka. Wyczuwalne 8,5%, rozgrzewa. Jest słodko-owocowo. Pomimo duzej ilosci "mocy" jest bardzo pijalne. Świetne piwo! Jedyna wada: goryczka, ktora nie jest odpowiednio wysoka.

adasko (241) - Poznan, POLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Great aroma of hops and tropical fruits - mango, papaya and a little bit of orange. It’s dark golden/bright amber color. Hazy, almost non-transparent. Nice head and lacing. Taste is a bit disappointing. Bitterness it too weak, fruits notes are like quelled, like not enough strict and clear. In general it’s quite good but still has some deficiencies.

rosenbergh (6658) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2014
500 ml bottle. BB 01/05/15. (Sklep Maria) Cracow, Poland. Cloudy amber colour with a small white head. Delicious fruity hoppiness with mild bitterness and sweetness in the aroma. Very nice. The flavour is fruity hoppy with mild bitterness, fruity and sugary sweetness and some piney notes. 8.5% is extremely well hidden. Delicious DIPA. A bit too sweet but very well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Resiny aroma with some alcohol notes. Solid malty base in taste. Nextly caramel and sweet orange. Unballanced and too sweet one.
