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.

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.

Bottled 500ml. -Thanks Slovakian crew for this one. Dark orange/golden coloured, small white head, mild hoppy nose with touch of spices. Quite strong hop bitterness with light fruity spicy notes and that’s it. Some alcohol shows up in the finish. All in all expected better one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Budapest Beer Festival 6/22/2014. Light to moderate roasted grain for the malt, moderate pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast with light dried fruit in the background. Head is average size, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. A better than I expected IPA from the Slovak Rep.
