Pours a clear orangey color, topped with decent off-white frothy head. Sweet malty aroma, fruity and quite some caramel and butter. Also slightly dusty. Starts sweet, with caramel, followed by a fairly strong bitterness. Aftertaste is heavily metallic and unpleasant. Expected more from it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Tap House Munich. Amber, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grass, some tropical fruits, honey. Taste is about the same. Mouthfeel is medium to light, slick, with a lively carbonation and it finishes bitter, slightly dry, with pine, grass, lemon zest, slight malt sweetness. Not bad, but not very intense or distinctive. Some nice pine notes, well balanced by decent sweet malts, but too much grass for my liking. Overall this just a bit above average.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Unusually sugary and caramelly for an IPA, with the hops being very muted. Even the rather subtle note of anise is stronger than the marginal, fresh hoppiness. Sweet bitter flavour, with the residual sugars cloying the mouth and the finish unsuccessfully trying to balance it by means of an astringent bitterness. The upside is the creamy carbonation and the soft mouthfeel but taken as a whole, this beer tastes disappointingly amateurish, like a chaotic patchwork that nobody cared to think over before creating it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Jun ’14. A 0.5 l bottle kindly shared by the Slovakian RB crew, thanks! It poured hazy light orange body with small head. Quite decent citrus hop aroma, fruity, peachy, fine. Not typical cascade driven IPA, but pleasant anyway. Flavor was on the other hand very bitter, more herbal than citrus, although showed some malty citrus and biscuit notes. Medium bodied. Quite bitter and dry finish lasts for some time. Decent, yet very simple and admittedly, a little bit boring.
