33cl bottle. A beautiful Indian style Pale Ale! Very hoppy at first sight, but citric and sweet at the end. Medium body, silky Co2, foam is ringing on the glass. Nice reddish-brown colour. My favourite!

Jó sör, becsületes jó IPA. Sem több, sem kevesebb. A főzdétől sem ez a kedvenc, bár nagy IPA rajongó vagyok...

worldbeertaste (1598) - AUSTRIA - APR 18, 2014
Medium to dark brown, opaque with an orange tint and a lasting, white, soapy, thin, light head. Smells of fresh fruit, caramel, herbal tones, grass grain and citrus overtones. Smooth and nice. Medium oily body with a fizzy body. Medium bitterness with a ashy grassy bitter finish.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 10, 2012
On tap at Csakajósör, Budapest. Beautiful, clear, deep amber color with medium, light-brown head. Hoppy aroma with resin, citrus, spices in harmony with the hiding caramel malt. Medium bitter taste, dry because of the resin. Light to medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Hoppy and caramel malty finish - maltier than the aroma. This beer is very delicious. Very good mate for the Grabanc - they are complitely different IPAs, but a very good substition for each other. It’s the first decoction, but it’s already one of the best beers in Hungary.

Marko (3878) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 3, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2012 Draught at the fest, murky coppery beer, slightly off white head, very good head retention. Gluey pear notes, fresh hopiness too, orange rind... the nose is full of promise. Gluey malty taste, apple, obvious work of Belgian yeast, nice, dry bitterness, notes of lime... basically a higher-tier Belgian ale hopped to perfection. The best beer at the festival, hands down. 7/4/8/4/16

Rerate (bottled):
Well, I got a bottle for heavy, so I got to try it again with him. Looked basically the same, but this time I was hit by a PERFECT tropical fruit & honey aroma, with a distinct hopiness. As much as it was dominantly Belgian last time, this time the hops take over and rule this, the bitterness hits you up front, with a jaffa cakes background from the maltiness.... tropical fruit again hiding behind the IBU festival. Some apple and wood maybe... oh man this is good. 9-10/4/8/4/16

promontor (60) - HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2012
ö.33 bottle collected at the 3rd Főzdefeszt, consumed after 6 weeks or so. (Actually there was another bottle consumed a couple of weeks earlier. That one tasted better and more complex. I tried to "average" the two, but I am writing this rating after the second taste so that has stronger weight in the scores...). Nice, sweetish fruity aroma, very strong in he first bottle, much less in the second. Head is fairly thick, foam tastes creamy and bittersweet. Color is very dark amber. Mild carbonation, silky, creamy taste. Strong fruity bitterness, maybe mandarin or fresh banana. Definite sweet component fighting with the bitterness, maybe a bit syrupy in the end. Aftertaste is mildly bitter, lasts long. A very nice effort, the sweetness could be a bit weaker and he whole composition a bit wilder, but still very promising!

A reddish copper coloured beer with an off-white head. Aroma is intense hoppy with piney, resinous, citrusy character. Hoppy flavour with some malty sweetness. Long, bitter and dry hoppy aftertaste. Good one!

Bottled from Only Good Beer in Budapest. Copper-amber color with good and white foam. Hop aroma (piney and herbs), good and stable bitterness, long and dry aftertaste = good IPA.
