Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : śliczne piwo o przejrzystym kolorze bursztynowym i czerwonym odcieniu. Piana nie jest duża o kolorze jasnego beżu. NOS : naprawdę jestem zauroczony aromatem tego piwa. Szczególnie bardzo bogatymi ale zarazem subtelnymi aromatami słodu ; tarta, toffi, podpalane i karmel nuty nie dominują ale wręcz podkreślają mocny, również złożony charakter chmieli : zioła, pompelo, skórki cytrusów, herbata. Do tego można dodać aromaty delikatnego alkoholu i śmietany. USTA : piwo jest średnio gazowane i puszyste o konsystencji odrobinę bardziej gęstej od miękkiej wody. Słodycz jest obecna i świetnie sobie radzi by piwo nie było za bardzo gorzkie. Gorzkość jest genialnie podkreślona lekko podpalanymi nutami. Karmel, przypalony tost, grejpfrut etc. ODCZUCIA : pyszne piwo. Jedno z lepszych IPA jakie kiedykolwiek piłem. Moja nowa referencja w tym stylu. Mam wielka nadzieje, ze powtórzą tą warkę bo jak nie to se sam takie coś będę musiał uwarzyć. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 8/10

chimpgibbon (201) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle at Jake’s Place. The barman asked if I wanted a glass- I mean come on! Anyway, he looked like a tequila man in the wrong joint. So, nice in a glass, good lacing. Citrus hop aroma. Sweetish up front, malty, sweet. Another sip. Better. Hops coming. Subtle. Candy. Bitter end.
