4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,33 l bottle. The last in the Kaltenecker series from a trade with Cuso. Thanks man! A two-finger dense creamy blond head, resting on a near-clear orangey golden body. Bold, yet rounded hop aroma. Piny, light resinous, Mild fruity, leafy and floral. Light toasted and doughy pale malts in the background. Medium to full body. Really creamy in the mouth. Invitingly sweet malt flavor, merging well with a rich and complex bitterness/hop character. Totally balanced. Alcohol well hidden. No (hop) smack in your face, and dangerously easy to drink. Just loveable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy copper body, white head. Aroma has really much caramel, nice hoppiness: resiny, citrussy and exotic soapy fruits. Bit alcohol in finish and turns on the dark side. Really harsh and caramelly flavour, high bitterness. Really strong alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from Cuso, BB 06/2013 merci for the series! - HU/SK DIPA: pours heavy and cloudy, on the fringe of dirty orange with good stable head. Convincing austere nose on stale grapefruit zest, peach and laden malts. Taste is Columbus-style hopbitter, with a slightly oily palate and some ABV fumes interfering. Quite convincing DIPA coming from an unexpected angle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I drunk this beer twice. First was in Budapest, it was a really good ipa. Resin, herbal hoppy aroma and grassy and fruity in mouth. No way to find the more than 8% alcohol. I was really surprised with this beer!
The second one, today, some months later at home. The beer was old(two months older than the recommended date to drink).
Aroma still really good, like a west coast ipa. Fruity and resin hops. In mouth you really can feel the alcohol this time. It starts with a medium hoppy flavour and the end is alcoholic and dry. Aftertaste is one more time hoppy.
My advise, try to drink it some where close to Slovenia or Hungary cause is a really good DIPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle in trade with the Cuso. A muted amber haze. Thick and sticky lacing even thru repeated quaffings. To me an East Coast US DIPA. More body than hops, and trust me, there is a truckload of hops in ths baby...well done. Reminicent of SN Bigfoot in the early days. Honey hop tinge central. Hops encircle and orbit about strong malt body. Finish similar but lighter and long. Lacing must be scrubbed from glass on the following morning....magnificent!

[Thanks to Cuso]. Bottled. Orange colour with a beautiful off-white head with an average duration. Aroma is strong bittery, oange and resins. Flavor is orange peel, tangerine, resins and pine notes, strong bittery with a high persistence and astringency in the throat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. BB ?? From Cuso. Köszönöm and thank you!
Cloudy amber colour with a small off-white head.
Sweetish piney and fruity hoppy aroma with caramel, mild alcohol and mild spices (mint). The flavour is very bitter hoppy with lots of sweetness and alcohol. The aftertaste is very bitter hoppy. Resiny. Rather balanced.
