3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Botteld. Dark amber color, thich and creamy head with good lacing. Hop aroma is not overwhelmingly strong, but it has nice orangey and floral notes and some pine. Quite strong caramel malty aroma and some yeast. Weird flavor, malt flavor is really bland. Pleasantly dry, but someting crucial is missing. Bitterness level is goog but it turns out to be quite harsh and vegetal. Fruitier flavors are masked. Piney and ashy finish with minor yeast notes. Medium body, soft and fresh texture.

On tap in Gas station pub. Hazy amber color with small head. Fresh hoppy aroma of citrus and lemon grass. Taste is similar, very fresh, hoppy and fruity (grapefruit). Medium bitterness and medium dry long aftertaste. Very nice session beer. One of the best if not the best Slovenian beer.

aroma sweet and mild. Looks a bit hazy and red. Very lovely taste of malt and citra. I’m a bit bad person to rate this right now because i have been drinking in Slovenia only lasko and union which are shit (compare heineken).

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 1,5L bottle bought at the brewery and on tap at the brewery. Murky amber colour with small off white head. Nice hoppy aroma (cascade hops) of tropical fruits like grapefruit, passion fruit and also some pine. Taste starts moderate bitter and finished moderate bitter, but too flat for my taste. I’m missing some carbonation here. There was some carbonation when I was drinking it on tap, but there wasn’t any from the bottle. Solid beer, with some space for improving.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Ljubljanski Festival Piva, Slovenia. Almost amber coloured, small off-white head, fruity nose. Moderate malty, fruity agrumey and light caramel taste with quite bitter aromatic hoppy finish. Also hint of spicy hops. Pleasant sipa. Croatian word sipa means cuttlefish on English.

Hehhehehe sipa. Anyway, different name nad abv from the amber ipa, so I added it. Poured a dark shiny coppery red-brown body, really dark for a pale ale yet not a black ipa. Lovely fruity agrumey aroma with a good malty background. It continues, fresh, in the taste. Lemon drops, lovely too, turning into a plastic-like finish with a healthy dose of bitterness. They aren’t pulling any punches despite an "unaccustomed" market and that’s to be respected and copied. In Croatia too, ya hear?!
