300ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Spicy zingy aroma. Orange, small head. Slightly soapy hop taste, but a nice bitter bite. Peachy body. Good balance between sweet malts, aromatic, and bitter hops. More a hoppy (dutch) bock than an IPA?

Stefanos (90) - POLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Gashed when opened. Orange, clear, large but frothy head, minimal lacing. Great aroma of tropical fruit (mango, maracuja, pineapple, banana), Whether aroma is sweet, the taste is rather bitter in a herbal way. It is bit over-carbonated, and finish is quite long. But very nice beer, nevertheless.

ruigo (1055) - PORTUGAL - JUN 26, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours an hazy orangish yellow colour with a big foamy white head. Aroma is tropical fruity, hoppy and citric. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is heavy bitter, like a kick of bitterness but with strong citric notes that is in the limit of being too much and taste of a dishwasher. Overall, a very good IPA but can be a bit extreme.
