500ml bottle - thanks Elvira
Past its BB by a few months, but there’s still a lovely fruity hopiness, very fruity. Sweet malty palate, a little heavy as it’s certainly sweet. Lots of pungent hops, and tons of bitter ones, this is more a modern IPA than an APA, it’s a full-on hoppy brew. Finish really bites and gets the tongue throbbing, but that doesn’t diminish the drinkability of it at all, if anything, it invites me to drink more. I finished the glass first - maybe I can steal some of anna’s... Underrate? Maybe +1 to taste?

Intensive pleasant citrus aromw with grapefruits and other fruits. Amber color.
Veryy good balance of malty sweetness (medium light body) and delecious bitterness of american hop. Aftertaste is quite good too - no rudness and not too short as well. Best russian APA.

BOTTLE 50 CL. Quite hoppy with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, jasmine and a touch of pine. The malts are quite bold - caramel sweetness and marmalade - but kept under control by the dry and clean moderate bitter finish. Well done.

0.5 litre bottle from GlavPivMag in Moscow. Pours amber with a small beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of mango and citrus fruits. Taste is similar, plus notes of pine. First Russian craft beer that I have ever tried (after six years of drinking Russia's macro beers). Very nice.
