This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

Bottle. Light clear golden pour with a thick sticky white head, plenty of good lacing. Huge tropical fruit in the nose, grapefruit is biggest. Also some various hop aromas, pine. Taste is great, similar fruit and hop tastes with a great bitter finish. Just an awesome IPA

0.33l bottle. Hazy golden color with small white head. Very strong smell of rotten fruits. Aroma of fruits, spice and smoke. Sharp bitter finish with some sourness.

0,33l bottle. Nice golden not quiet clear colour. Makes a nice 1 cm white head. Aroma of fresh tropical fruits, very nicely balaced. Nice medium body. Average carbonation. In flavoure is a nice mixture of sweet malt and medium bittery hops, that stays in mouth after drinking. Lovely beer!

Drinking this at King’s Café, Rijeka. Posred 0.33 bottle in a proper glass, clear golden with small white quickly diminishing head. Strong aroma of a kitchen spice, laurel or basil, I think, not sure. Very pleasant, with some fruits, orange and peach. Light hoppy bitterness, some fruity sweetness behind this. Very aromatic, but light with a lingering aftertaste. A classic!

gran cerveza, ideal para entrar dentro del mundo de las IPA, aroma muy interesante. cerveza artesana rozando ya a industrial, pero muy bien hecha eso si!

Too bad that such a fragrant beer should taste so bad. Bitterness is far too phenolic.

Delicious! Nice fruity IPA aromas with tangerine and grapefruit, maybe some resin. Feel is just slick enough but not cloying. Taste is not killer bitter. A really well balanced American IPA which I didn’t expect. Great beer

5.6% ABV. IPA Light foamy tan head. Sticks around long enough to be noticed but not long enough to claim the title of a proper head. Nose is clean and lightly scented with lemon peel and passionfruit, ethereal hints of pine. Very complex first mouhtful. The mouthfeel is clean, moderately carbonated and inviting. There are immediately a host of fruity flavors: passionfruit, orange and some plum. These give way almost immediately to an interesting foreground flavor of what I can only describe as reminiscent of bacon fat, candle wax, cheese rinds and maybe even barbecued pork. I actually had a whole bottle and am still chasing that last elusive flavor note. Anise maybe? It finishes clean but has a bit of a sour palate all the way to the end. A well crafted IPA. Some love and thought went into it. Nice amount of mystery surrounding it. At the end of the day not enough to make it to my favorites list.
