armando629 (2406) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2011
0,33 l bottle.
Poured opalescent deep amber, medium, creamy stable white head. Aroma of grape, resin, grapefruit, pine, yeast and a wide caramel base. Oily texture with the caramel base, after the first slip the powerful hop bits with its own resiny bitterness. Grape and grapefruit kicks ass. Hop cones luxuriates in the aftertaste. Good one ;-)

luttonm (2192) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 25, 2012
Draft at Csak a J Sr ("Only Good Beer") in Budapest. So glad I got to try this, thanks to Armando for making it all happen. Very nice, strong IPA. Golden orange, hop forward and relatively fresh. Orange, citrus. Restraining balance, some nice soapyness and a bit wattery. I think it could use a slight step forward or back (stronger body or back off the hops a touch). But really fantastic, stand-out local IPA. Wish I had more of it around, and closer. Looking forward to the other beers this team is putting together
