bottle with thanks to Cuso! Hazy amber-brown colour, off-white head. Full-bodied, biter sweet with a grainy malty base and lots of resiny-grassy hop flavours, shy herbal accent in the background.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via Cuso in trade. Aroma of hops, grain and tea leaves. Pouts a bright brown. Average head and no lacing left as it settles. body is on the lighter side of medium. Hops abound upfront and then fade a bit, letting the malts thru. Stronger rye tone takes over about 30% thru and rides nicely till nutty finish. Strangely the hops were strong upfront and faded to a low central tone. Very nice with dinner.

330 ml bottle. BB ??. From Cuso. Vďaka!
The colour of this IPA is rather dark reddish brown with some small off-white head. The aroma is quite moderate with some sweetness, (darkish) fruits, citrus, malt and subtle bitterness. The flavour is also moderate. Some sweetness, fruits, sweetish malt, mild bitterness and notes of mint and herbs. Balanced and smooth. Nice not-overhopped IPA.
