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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to the Slovak crew! :). Poured a lovely misty darker amber-golden body with a medium sized white head. Weak malty aroma, light notes of orange... English-style? Could be, certainly not American. The malty notes and that something that reminds me of orange show up in the taste too, finishing with a strong, somewhat herbal/piney bitterness. Creamy, light, nice, just a tad unbalanced.

Hazy dark orange colour with small white head. Smell is of herbal hops and resins. Taste reveals some more malts, then again the herbal notes. Quite dry finish, bitter, but it’s missing some more fruity notes. Anyway a good IPA.
