UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Aromat w połączeniu ze smakiem zniewalająco chmielowo-słodowy. Niemal idealne połączenie. Piwo pełne, trochę ciężkie, mocne. Jednocześnie dość pijalne i nieco rześkie. Przyjemność w każdym łyku.

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.

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 (374) - Łódź, 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.

kevnic2008 (9590) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow hold, no head. Nice pine and citrus nose. Pretty balanced hop attack, a bit bitter on the finish.

TBone (13851) - 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 (3796) - 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.
