3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle with many, many thanks from Cuso. I had very high hopes into this one, because I just love IPAs and this one looked very interesting alone from outside. It pours out in a hazy orange-amber colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of aromatic hops and light soap. Taste of fresh aromatic hops, oranges, thyme, citrus peel, coriander and grass. Very, very bitter finish, little bit dry ending as well. I enjoyed this beer a lot, but the finish was just a little bit too bitter for me.

hazy orange colour, medium white head; aroma and taste of malty sweetness with hints of honey and a bit too low hoppy bitterness; rather a traditional english-type IPA than a hop-bomb american one...

Golden pale body with low haze. Head is stable, about one finger. Aroma has a lot of hop character, mostly fruity of citrus, little bit earthy and spicy. The taste has malty sweetness with good hop support, pineapple. The after taste is bitter, not very well balanced. Body is full with good carbonation.

aroma of contained yeast, lactic acid, cheese. Finally, a EU IPA with a convincing medium-full malt body, pleasant. Dominant resiny hops with subdominant fruitier ripe grapefruit notes. Very decent, if you are not easily distracted by the off off notes.

.33l bottle, new style, found in Kosice, Slovakia. Light hazy orange, mild head, juicy soft fruit, artificial sweet citrus. Some hop juiciness. Light body but with good drying hop, quite nicely juicy, though a bit on the sickly radler end of things. Drying finish. Some nice things going on here, but not great

Yes another wonderful unfiltered brew from Slovakia. These guys are hitting the nail on the head with that. Unfiltered sends some yeas tang in with the gentle hop presence. A pleasant diacetyl slithers thru the body for a nice balance. Bottle in trade with Cuso. Alcohol is muted and well entrenced in the maltiness.
