Yeeeahhh! Grabanc is = IPA. Mysterious apperiance, without yeast is very smple bitter, but with early tappped yeast, is too hot to tell it! Concentated, biteable, fruity and very well hopped! I think it is better than example mikeller’s one hoped IPAs.

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.

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

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.

Az első néhány kortyot csukott szemmel ittam, így Angliában éreztem magam! Remélem mielőbb kapható lesz e nemes nedű!

Lore (2169) - 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.

Csakajósör bolt, Armando Otchoa. Gyönyörű narancsszín, és remek citrusos - nem túl szúrós, hanem inkább szárazan elegáns, főleg ez a második főzet - illat. Grapefruit, mandarin. Enyhe muskotályos édesség, trópusi citrusos gyümölcsíz - köszönhetően a Cascade-nak, és utóízében ott a markánsan izmos, de mégis gyönyörűen komponált keserűsége a Chinook komlónak. Remek sör!

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 Sweet aroma, healthy amber color, somewhere in between a Belgian and West coast Ipa. Very satisfying. Stays on the palate like a good IPA should. Drank off the tap at Csak a Jó Sörök. Easily best Hungarian beer I?ve ever had.
