330ml bottle, thanks to Cuso! Pours murky brown with thin cream head with an earthy caramel pine aroma. Taste is deliciously slick resin, pine, caramel and bucketloads of hops. A very good DIPA.

Kita (1084) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle, 0.33, courtesy of Maurizio. Clear deep amber color with small creamy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, biscuits, dried fruits, resin and herbal hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel, follows herbal and fruity with warming, spicy, alcoholic mouthfeel and heavy bitter finish with long aftertaste. Full body, syrupy texture and average carbonation in palate. Hoppy like hell, but I still miss tropical fruits aromas...

androman (396) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2014
33cl bottle @ home, gift from Csak a Jó Sör - Only Good Beer, Budapest, many thanks! Hazy amber color, small creamy beige mostly diminishing fair lacing head. Aroma apple, caramel, citrus in the nose, roasty, slightly coffeeish, licorice, herbs, tons of hops, alcohol is noticable. Taste light sweetness, heavy quinine bitterness, light fruity sourness. Full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, fully lasting strong hoppy bitter finish. Not so easy to drink, delicious dessert IPA.

ogivlado (5723) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 7, 2014
Bottled 500ml. -Slovak crew of course. Clear golden coloured, minimal white head, light hops in the nose. Quite herbal hoppy taste with notes of fruits and alcohol. Bitter hoppy finish with notes of alcohol. Quite nice but alcohol is a bit too strong pronounced.

Oooh booy, thanks to the Slovak Crew! Had huge expectations for this one after tasting the NoHopLimit. Did it deliver? Let’s see. Deep amber body, white head. Hm. Aroma... oranges, malty notes, aromatic, herbal hoppiness, not bad at all. Aromatic, huge bitterness in the taste balanced by a good, nice sweet malty body, only some alcohol and milt stickiness detract. Very likable indeed. Didn’t feel it was the best Hopfanatic beer, perhaps not Kaltenecker either. Ah well - great beer in any case.

MisoW (1337) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark amber color, lightly yellow head. Aroma is sweet, malty and hoppy. Taste is medium sweet, bitter, extra hoppy, pineapple, malty, caramel. Very nice, extra hoppy bitter but also medium sweet finish.

HerrBierkoenig (272) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 25, 2014
From 0,33l bottle. BBD: 14.11.2014 Pours slightly hazy amber - orange to red liquid with small tan creamy head. Aroma: citrus, lemon grass, pine, hops, fruits: bit mango and bit banana, caramel, bread, but overall the intensity of the aroma is rather medium. Taste: medium sweat, heavy bitter, very long dry bitter aftertaste. Lemon grass, caramel, bread, well hidden alcohol. Very hoppy. Palate: full body, oily to slick texture, soft carbonation, long dry bitter finish. Overall: Very good DIPA, strong, very hoppy, dry, well hidden alcohol, but expected more. Less aromatic, that it could be and too bitter - makes the taste undetectable. Even if I´m perhaps too severe on this piece, I must say, it is one of the best Kaltenecker pieces, especially for those, who love unlimited bitterness :)

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2013
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.
