adster (400) - HUNGARY - SEP 28, 2014
Narancstea-színű, kristálytiszta főzet, tetején egy hófehér és krémes habkoronával. Illata meglepően különleges, nem a megszokott amerikai-vonalas IPA aromái ezek. Egy kevés belga élesztősség, likőrös-marcipános édesség és egy vaskos, brit komlós karakter érvényesül benne leginkább. Ez utóbbi jellemvonás számomra legalábbis nem kis meglepetést okozott. Krémes, selymesen csúszó textúra, a legenyhébb mértékű szénsavasság; mesterien eltalált test. Zamatos jellegű, egyszersmind elegánsan száraz főzet, melyben azért a prímet a fűszeres, füves-fás hangulatú komló adta ízvilág viszi, ami elemi erejű, lehengerlően naturális, azonban minden vadságtól is mentes, már-már úriember modorú ital. Azt nem mondanám, hogy az ízvilágot közelebb állónak érzem egy tradicionális angol bitterhez, mindazonáltal az IPA-műfajnak azt a kontinentális vonulatát testesíti meg, amely talán kevésbé áll közel a szívemhez. Ezzel együtt természetesen egy ragyogó alkotásról van szó.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2014 Gold clear color with small head. Hops in the aroma, not too fruity though, the fruits are subtle. Some tropical aromas, very nice. Also some straw and malt. Bitter taste right from the start, maybe some grapefruit & pineapples, marmalade. Great mouthfeel, low carbonation. Something different in a world where extremely fruity IPAs are more common.

Cunningham (4536) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2014
Perfect hazy golden color with a nice white head that last a long, time and ends up in a white layer. Ok lacing. Rich grapefruit hoppy when I opened the bottle. More citrus after a while and some tropical fruity notes. Smooth nice body. Perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness. A bit oily texture. Fine grapefruity, mild caramel malty and a bit tropical fruity. I just says: WoW!

355 mL bottle. Pours pale copper with a thick white cap. Tangerine, grapefruit pith, cedar, earthy, floral hop tones, back by gentle pale biscuity malt. Dry and distinctly bitter, but surprisingly smooth, lasts long on the palate. Somehow light bodied with above average carbonation. Painfully easy drinking. Gift from a friend, too bad it’s 3 months old, would love a fresh one.
