4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy copper with a high head. Aroma (dry) hops, citrus. Perhaps a bit fruity but too much so. Slightly soapy feel, but not in a bad way. Medium carbonation and body. Not Bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and light grapefruit notes with some light rustic malt notes. Taste is also dominated by medium rustic malt notes with limited sweetness level and also comprised notes of citrus and floral hops with a light dry bitter finish. Body was full with limited filtration and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Well brewed with solid malt backbone while not being overly sweet though additional hops presence would have been even better.

Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33l bottle from Csakajósör, Budapest. Cloudy orange color with medium white head. Delicious hoppy aroma with fruits, honey, flowers and resin. The smooth caramel aroma helps the hops to prevail. The huge body balances the bittersess, so the taste is light bitter. Medium full body with creamy texture and average carbonation. Amarillo hops finish. It’s an outstanding beer. Although it’s not a single-hop IPA, it highlights the aroma of the Amarillo.
