The aroma is full of hops, flowers, pine, citrus, lime, mango, pineapple and passionfruit. The color is golden with a lot of yeast particles floating around. The taste is full of hops, flowers, pine, pineapple, passionfruit, mango, lime and caramel. A nice beer!

Turns out I’m good at Love Letter, but the moment we changed games we also changed beers. Aroma is not as hoppy as I expected, and neither was the bluff I called. Appearance is classic IPA, which in a game like Coup, can get you killed. Taste is good, balanced with hoppyness and malt taste, but that did not stop me from losing an influence card on my turn. The palate was great, much better that the aftertaste of losing two coup games in a row. Overall a great IPA, a great game, even if I keep getting couped.

Hazy gold, lots of floating yeast. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Flavor of grapefuit, pine, spicy and resinous hops. Pretty nice, nothing crazy though.

Medium sweet and bitter. Medium body with malty slick base and some grainy texture. Long bittersweet caramel finish. Soft carbonation.

I was totally surprised by this one. Floral, grape-fruity. An absolute delight to drink. Solid IPA.

MarkoNm (2340) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 18, 2016
Pours a very hazy pale yellow orange, topped with a fairly small and non lasting head. Lemony aroma, some tangerine - soury fruity notes basically with some maltiness in the back. Just a hint of sweetness upfront, followed by a decent hoppy bitterness, herbal quality. Going into a lasting aftertaste. Fairly light, nice but perhaps a bit too herbal.

Hazy golden color with tiny white head. Aroma of hops, sweet fruit. Love the aroma! Taste is well balanced with sweet and bitter finish. Very good IPA.
