Wojo21 (213) - Pelplin, POLAND - AUG 28, 2016
W aromacie mix cytrusów i iglaków, przyjemny dosyć. Barwa ciemno złota, piana średnio obfita. W smaku bardziej słodko niż wytrawnie, iglaki, żywica. Goryczka średnio intensywna, żywiczna. Ogólnie średnie.

alteregoo (862) - POLAND - AUG 23, 2016
Piana, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, dość trwała. Barwa złota, klarowna. W aromacie jest troszkę cytrusów, zielone owoce, melon, świerk, landrynka... W smaku półsłodko, powtórka tego co w zapachu plus grejpfrut, nafta i lekkie miodowe utlenienie. Goryczka średnia, ziołowo żywiczna. Wysycenie średnie, delikatnie czuć alkohol.
Piwo dość przeciętne, przypomina ice tea, nieźle pijalne i bez większych wad, warte tej obniżonej ceny...

Majek (697) - Ząbki, POLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Clear, amber colour with medium stable head. Moderate aroma of grain, some caramel, earthy and grassy bitterness. Taste is medium sweet, light to medium bitter with medium ling duration sweet/bitter with hint of roasted malts finish. Medium carbonation. Medium body. Solid classic IPA. I bought it for ~0,7 EUR (3 PLN), so it’s worth to try for this price.

Nawet nawet. W aromacie bardzo fajnie, ale w smaku nie przypadło mi do gustu. Ps: Kupione po 2,99 zł.

ThirstyBird (2589) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2016
I was excited to try this one as it had good ratings. On gravity at the Riser festival in Berko. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with an off-white head. The smell is rich toasted malt, citrus fruit with depth. The taste is complex...toasted grain at the forefront, citrus, cherry, grass and quite bitter on the end. Light+ in body with fine carbonation. Not quite as goos as I had hoped...

Towey1989 (1755) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine, slight mango and subtle floral hops. Taste is similar of grapefruit, orange, resin, slight mango, a little caramel and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A long, dry, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. A good, strong, hoppy cask IPA. A nice, long, dry finish too. Great.
