Tap at Csakajósör, Budapest. Poured a murky medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big crisp citrus fruit, weedy hop bitter, light alcohol palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

On tap at csakajo. Hazy yellow colour with a stiff white head, that lasts as long as the beer. Nose of citrus and tangerine. Taste is medium bitter, with low carbonation. Some earthy notes, maybe some resin. Very good beer, but to be honest I expected better by the hype...

On tap @ Csakajósör - Hazy deep golden orangeish colour with a long lasting, lacing fluffy white head. Aroma is a lot of citrus, orange peel, pine and some grainy, bready malt scent. Tropical fruits, grapefruit, resinous and spicy hoppiness are very well balanced, however the taste is ruled by serious bitterness. Body is medium, average carbonation and a lingering hoppy finish. Somehow its so harmonic even in small details, so solid, so whole... In this beer, you can feel the expertise and the greatness of an infatuated brewer. One of my favourite beers.

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...

migajos (305) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 1, 2014
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.)

gunser (55) - HUNGARY - NOV 25, 2013
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 (440) - 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.
