Friss még az anyag vagyis zavaros de nálam ez nem feltétlenül negatív. Így is szép a sör a sok és sűrű bézs habjával és a borostyán színével. (Azt hittem sötétebb lesz...) Illata érett, édes gyümölcsöket hoz utána ömlik a sok citrus, gyanta, gyógynövény hátul pedig ott a malátafal. A szesz jelen van de nem vadul. Nem tud érvényesülni annyira a sok komló miatt! :) Édesebb ízre számítottam az alkoholfok miatt de inkább csak ragasztja az ajkakat. Brutálisan keserű, száraz. Ilyen egy igazi IPA. Ez eddig a sörfőző legjobb munkája. Ne legyen határ, csak így tovább! Gratula!!!

heavy (2144) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 19, 2014
Jun ’14. A 0.5 l bottle kindly shared by the Slovakian RB crew, thanks! It poured hazy darker amber body with small head. Citrus hop in aroma, especially orange note was strong but not dominating. Caramel, biscuit and other toasted malt were overwhelming. Flavor was malty as well, balanced with hops although still pretty sweet. Medium to full in body with longer, sweetish and herbal bitter finish now. Alcohol was evident quite a lot, but it was really a nice brew anyway.

BOTTLE 33 CL from Cuso. Look: deep copper, clear with a thin sediment. Smallish off-white head. Aroma: light hops, just enough to offset the rich maltiness, rich mats, caramel, biscuit, a tad of ethanol. Taste: again rich maltiness, caramel, solid body, not much hop flavour, alcohol and a harsh bitter finish.

With its solid malt base, alcohol and not much hops, it drinks more like a strong ale than a DIPA.

minutemat (1761) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
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.

Spicy and herbal aroma, malt, oranges, grapefruit. Sweet with a bitter undertone and a long lasting bitter finish, some alcohol. Tasty and excellent.

Kita (1120) - 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 (441) - 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 (5791) - 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.

Marko (3965) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 11, 2014
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.

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.
