flip_soeperman (880) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2014
A golden beer with nice white head. Aroma of caramel and bread. Not too much aroma of Nelson Sauvin or yeast. 10% is well hidden, but for me a single hop beer needs to showcase the hop. It was barely noticeable. Too sweet, not enough bitterness and not a real hoppy aroma.

Liked this one ok; not my favorite of the single hops. Lots of citrus in the nose, but the bitterness seemed a little out of balance. It was there, just didn’t seem quite right. I will commend this for being very drinkable given the 10% abv.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 1, 2013
On tap at Csakajósör, Budapest. Clear, deep golden colored beer with hard, rocky, white head. Honey and flower odor. Fruity, floral, aroma with dried plum and honey. Some pine, resin and grass appears later. Very intensive aroma. A bitterness hide alcohol well. Dry, medium bitter taste. Creamy texture, full body, soft carbonation. Intensive and complex beer. Very fruity, honey and malty too. Well balanced.

Like a thick hoppy paste at times, but really tasty. This hop variety is really pronounced but in the end works really well to mask the high alcohol level. Impressive.
