4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap @ Csak a Jó Sör in Budapest - may 2013, second batch. Hazy golden colour. Pleasant strong hoppy aroma. Taste is very unusual, due to the fermentation with hefeweiss yeast - gentle sour, sweet and citrus fruits but after that nice medium biterness. I remember this wonderful taste after almost a year. Brilliant summer IPA!

On tap at Főzdefeszt 2012 autumn. Very delicious, hoppy aroma with special wheatbeer feeling bacuse of the yeast. The bitterness of the hop ges well with the yeast. The flavours support each other. Fruits, banana and citrus. Heavy bitter taste. Delicious sweetness from the yeast, but the hops’ bitterness rules everything. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Grainy but bitter finish. Amazing beer, I like it very much. Very good idea to use this yeast!

a kedvenc Grabancom. A szokásos citrusos/grapefruitos komlósság mellett ott érződik a búzasörök frissessége, banános vonásai - bizonyítandó, hogy erős a szerepe az élesztőnek is az alapanyagok mellett.

Grabanc varieties never let down! This lighter version is a tasty summertime beer. Available at Csak a Jó Sör on tap. Great hoppy beer that has a bit of a kick.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2nd batch. Light amber hazy colour with a dense foam. Light smell of the yeast. Start with a sweet fruity taste and rolls gently into citric bitterness of the hops. Dry aftertaste with the sweet taste which appears again. Very well ballanced IPA. One of the best Hungarian beers ever tasted. Hopefully the master brewer will brew it more frequently and we can find it at more places in Budapest.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
hazy dark golden colour, significant off-white head; very pleasant aroma of citruses (mainly grapefruit), fresh bitterness and some malty notes with banana (?); taste is fully dominated by hoppy bitterness and very intensive citrussy notes, however some maltyness can also be felt and I would say that the effect of the used yeast line is also detectable slightly in the taste and aroma (something from the freshness of wheatbeers);excellent IPA! Congratulations, master armando :)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Csak a Jó Sör - Only Good Beer in Budapest. Pours a lightly hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grainy with a bit of cheese to the hops, but there is a good amount of citruses florals and a slight crystal malt sweetness next to the distinct hefe yeast strain. Flavor is similar. Some touches of clove phenols and banana with a good amount of citrus hops, some resins, and a slightly sweet crystal malt backing. Finishes dry and bitter with some resins and a hefe yeastiness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, an interesting and decent IPA. Nothing special, but the hefe yeast makes this pretty unique. Not bad.
