Nem véletlenül ennyire népszerű! A legjobb magyar IPA, amit volt szerencsém eddig kóstolni! Sőt a család is szereti, mert nekik is vettem:)

Csak egyszer ittam, akkor is véletlenül, de nagyon ízlett! Azóta sem találom sehol, pedig bejártam jó pár helyet érte...

Beautiful hazy dark orange color. Perfect long lasting head. Hoppy a bit malty aroma. Tropical fruits. Very nicely balanced taste. Very hoppy. Mixture of strawbery like sweetness and grapefruit-like bitterness. One of the best IPA’s I;’ve ever had.

Small offwhite head Floral tropical fruit aroma with orangey notes. Dryish tropical fruit and mint taste with orangey strawy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish tropical fruit and resin aftertaste with strawy minty notes. Fresh, soft, and drinkable. Very nice. (0.4l draft at Csak a jo sörök, Budapest.)

Tükrös narancssárga szín. Hófehér tejszínhab szerű és eltűnni nem akaró hab. Már a csapoláskor betölti az egész helységet az illata, ami citrus, ananász és muskotályos szölő. Gazdagon összetett íze van. Testesen malátás és gyümölcsös. Utóíze fűszeresen komlós. Igazi élménysör, minden korty felfedezés.

aronvarga (359) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 1, 2013
Draught @ Csak a Jó Sör. Cloudy, dark amber colour, long-life white small head, piney and yeasty aroma, from medium to heavy body, smooth fizziness, sweet malty taste with caramel notes, vibrant hoppy grapefruit palate. Nice well-balanced IPA style brew.

Keg at ’ only good beer’ in Budapest. One if the only locals on Tap, just happened to be the Hungarian #1 beer. Not a bad IPA, above average for beer in the region

Lore (1516) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 20, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2015 hazy bright amber colour, huge and stable off-white head; aroma of citrusy-fruity freshness, resin, alcoholic sweetness, some yeast and hints of muscat; taste is fully dominated by hoppy bitterness with pine resin, not too intensive grapefruit and some minimal alcoholic-malty sweetness;excellent Hungarian IPA; it would be in the top 50 IPA in the world if armando had the fortune to live e.g. in the US...or at least his beers would be available all over the World. Congratulations, armando.

Easily the best Hungarian beer I’ve ever tried, and this was the first IPA for me as well. Fruity, hoppy aroma, its taste is crisp, fruity, malty, real refreshing, with traces of some citruses, and some sweetness. The bitterness is almost perfect. Really nice one.
