MelvinKalksma (690) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, tea, orange, tropical fruit, pine, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with tea, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer might not be really intense or complex, but has depth and is balanced with interesting flavours. The earthy malts bring a nice tea flavour to it all.

Bottle at home. Clear golden colour, big offwhite foamy head. Nicely citrus hoppy nose, grassy, light pine; taste is nicely backed by some sweet and grainy malts, but light, leaving room in the finish for a nicely crisp bitterness. Lingering citrus fruity, piney bitter aftertaste. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry mouthfeel.

Hoppy_Luke (1043) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 29, 2016
Kolejne piwo prosto ze Stanów. Tym razem IPA browaru Drake’s Brewing Company, znajdującego się w San Leandro, w stanie California. W szkle wygląda bardzo ładnie - bursztynowy kolor i niewielka, biała piana. W aromacie wyczuwalne owoce, głównie cytrusy oraz nuty żywiczne. W smaku dość wytrawne, są owoce, nieco słodyczy. Goryczka delikatna, nie nachalna. Wysycenie średnie. Przyjemne, solidne piwo!

Biroholik (689) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 21, 2016
Złoty Medalista Great American Beer Festival. Złoty w pełni klarowny trunek. W aromacie kombinacja nut żywicznych tropikalnych i kwiatowych. Zapach jest umiarkowanie trwały. W smaku wytrawne z akcentami owoców cytrusowych i tropikalnych. Sporo herbacianych detali. Goryczka średniej maści, króciutka z żywicznym finiszem. Średnie wysycenie. Bardzo orzeźwiające, średnio pełne i super pijalne.

Bottle from Villevalla pub. West coast IPA with a malty body. Dark transperent yellow with off-white head. Too old, will drink again if I get the chance, would like it fresh
