prusten (1) - HONG KONG - DEC 2, 2013 does not count
Satisfying, hoppy ale with Atlantic and New Zealand hops, and a flavour coming close to the best IPAs.

This is one of my favorite beers from Celt. The beer comes in a 500ml bottle which is 5.6& abv. The beer is very clear and has a nice one finger head which gives a nice lacing down the glass too. The grains used in this beer blends together really well with the hops to resemble a very good balanced beer.

Grzesiek79 (3307) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Znakomite piwo, ładna szata graficzna etykiety i butelki. Elegancki wygląd kryje porządne i jakościowe piwo walijskie. Mętne, średnia piana, zapach słabo wyczuwalny, ale smak słodowy i zbożowy. Finisz rozgrzewający chć niezbyt wysokie stężenie alkoholu ma to cudne piwo

seritomi (308) - HUNGARY - SEP 2, 2013
Szép sárga de nem teljesen tiszta. Habja világossárga teljesen soha nem tűnik el. Illata fás, furmintos, citrusos és száraz. Mindenből egy kicsi nem erőlködik nem támad le. Meglepően testes az alkohol tartalmához képest és erősen komlós. Gyantás kesernyésség. Szinte ragad olyan malátás de nem gej. Basszus ez egy nagyon jó sör pedig már kóstoltam tőlük és az nem volt olyan nagy szám.

PapaVillum (511) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2014
500 ml, flaske/bottle, 5,6 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Rotunden i Hellerup, 26. juni 2014. Flot ravfarvet og ufiltreret walisisk IPA med fin og enkel offwhite-farvet skumtop på 1 cm tykkelse. Klar og velduftende aroma af blomster, citrus og grapefrugt. Svage noter af humle. Holy moly, en dejlig smag! Humlet og krydret med en anelse sødme og en dejlig tør samt skarp afslutning. Dejlig balance mellem sødme og bitterhed, og billedet starter med sødmen og bitterheden hånd i hånd og sidst i dette, kommer det mere krydrede indtryk. Rolig, men også frisk mundfølelse med et indhold af kuldioxid på lige under medium. Eftersmagen er oveni god og af medium længde. Er meget begejstret over denne IPA og i tillæg til det gode indhold i flasken, må man bøje sig i støvet over "indpakningen", som jeg finder æstetisk smuk. Must have more!

StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
A mid amber orange-yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. A powerful aroma, immediately apparent on opening the bottle. Huge citrus fruit hop, grapefruit and lemon, and a touch floral. Dry mouthfeel. A mouth filling hop taste, bitter grapefruit and lemon citrus fruit elements along with a grassy, floral flavour. There is a subtle sweetness in the background that tempers the bitterness into the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
