On tap@Hopfanatic Pub - Hazy orange colour, small but steady off-white head. Intense citrussy hop aromas with flowery and resinous notes.

Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, smooth mouthfeel, dry, fruity and hhoppy finish. Great IIPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 330ml (AbM, BB 09/2016)
Dark amber color, good creamy off-white head and lots of lace. Nose starts with must dry yeastyness, but when it opens up it gets resiny-hoppy aroma. Medium to full-bodied. Resiny with sweet crystal maltyness. Chewable even toffeish. Long lingering resiny aftertaste. Not totally in balance but for Hungarian beer it is quite good.
