?wietne piwo... Ipa od dogfisha ma cudowny aromat owoców tropikalnych w smaku jest fajnie zbalansowane nic nie dominuje goryczka ?rednia, bardzo szlachetna szybko zanika i pozostawia w ustach taki fajny aromat chmielowy, wysycenie ?rednie wzmaga tylko i tak ju? wysoka pijalnosc. Bardzo polecam

BOTTLE 355 ML from CH-303. Bottled on 30/04/2014. Look: hazy golden-amber, off-white frothy head. Aroma: some dull hops, gooseberry tea-leaf? generic caramel sweetness, some alcohol even? Taste: Very light hop flavour, the malts on the other hand are prominent and are followed by a somewhat harsh bitterness. Not impressed, but the age might be reason.

Ambrée orangée claire, légèrement voilée. Petite mousse blanche, peu persistante. Avec de jolis dépôts. Aromatique fruitée sur le citrus, un peu pin... pas résineuse. Maltage peu présent. Levures bien perceptibles... En bouche très fruitée sur les agrumes-citrus. Un peu sucrée, avec une bonne amertume. Restant en bouche sans aucune aigreur. Bien balancée sur ce point. Carbonatation moyenne Bonne IPA. Très aromatique, amertume balancée... maltage peu intéressant. Appearance: it has a light orange color with a thin head. Aroma: smells like fruits, pine and some hops. Taste: it has citrus, fruity notes and a good bitterness. Nicely balanced beer. 3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20 Muggus69 (1241) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2014 355mL bottle Bottled 07/08/14 Slightly hazy pale gold body, holds good sized firm white head. Good resiny hop aroma; lots of grapefruit, candied orange, pine sap, unripe melon, with a toasty maltiness underneath. Full bodied, nice slickness to the palate combining with a creamy carbonation. Hops aplenty on the body, without going overboard - cedar, pine, grapefruit rind, freshly cut grass, woody sap, all underpinned by a good measure of toasty, lightly caramelised malt. Lingering bitterness, plenty of bite but balanced well. Very nice. Packed full of character but highly drinkable! 3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20 ramboraffe (604) - SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2014 On tap. Hazy orange with white head. Smell is hoppy pine, grapefruit and floral. Taste is heavy hoppy with grapefruit, pine, grass and flowers. Dry with high bitterness and medium carbonation.

phikus (80) - syracuse, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2014
This is my idea of a session IPA not the hop water they are making now. For a standard IPA this beer is completely lacking. Its a really good pale ale not an ipa

Fatehunter (1399) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Pours a thin head on a clear straw colored body. The aroma is mild overall; candy and pine. The taste has a pleasant lemon and pine bitterness running through with touches of honey sweetness. Good balance. The texture is crisp and dry. Enjoyable.
