WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, opalizująca. Piana drobno pęcherzykowa, raczej krótka. AROMAT: Na pierwszym planie cytrusy i ziołowość. W tle żywica, trawiastość, ziołowość, łodygowość, owoce tropikalne (mango) oraz delikatny alkohol. SMAK: W smaku ziołowość, delikatne cytrusy, alkohol i słodowość. Goryczka średnia. Jak na 8,5 procent, bardzo pijalne.

Aroma- some sweet malt staff than classic hops- rasin, grass, citrus. Very clear but not intense. Expected more hops. 2 fingers almost white head. In my glass it was gold. Maybe slightly amber. Taste- sweetnes, medium bitternes (light as for style), some citrus/mango staff going there. Some caramel? Overall- from one hand, not one of this stylish IIPA, not one of this hopped to the end kicking out of shoes. From the other one, most drinkable IIPA I’ve ever drunk. At least for me. Better for party than for degustation, altough, 8%ABV can close your party earlier.

Butelka 0,5 l (01.05.2015). Zapach cytrusów i lekki diacetyl. Piana niezbyt obfita, średnio pęcherzykowa, jasna. Dość szybko się redukuje i nie wytrzymuje do końca. Barwa złota, lekko mętna. W smaku słodkawe z wyraźną goryczką. Nasycenie średnie. Piłem wcześniejsze warki tego piwa (beczka i butelka) i uważam, że ta warka jest zdecydowanie gorsza od poprzednich.

Bardzo wyra?ny cytrusowy aromat, alkohol dobrze ukryty, goryczka wyra?na. Piana lekko przybrudzona drobna, do?? dobrze si? utrzymuje.

Aroma: floral, mango. Pale, clear, small head. Medium bitterness, lightly sweet. Silent, but deadly.

For me it smells and tastes more like a classic IPA. Despite high ABV the alcohol is hidden well enough to not being annoying.
