Bitter beer, with a subtle fruity note. But mostly it’s bitterness with some grainy malt. It’s no IPA though, the name on the bottle is wrong.

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Clear golden. Skunky aroma with a bit of malt. Flavor has light maltiness, skunky hops and some slightly harsh bitterness. Medium-bodied. Damn those clear glass bottles.

A surprise find at Dva Tona Bar, Split, shared with heavy. Clear bottle - what the hell is wrong with these people... Anyway, misty honey colour with a small white head. Peach jam aroma, maltiness. Fresh peach jam in the taste, surrounded by lemon, with a herbal bitter hops & honey finish. Quite clean, apart from some weak socks here and there. Actually not as bad as I expected, since I didn’t approach it expecting an IPA.

Bottle from my brewmate, thanxx man!
Pours golden yellow with flat white head. Smells floral hoppy with some grainy malts. Starts with a moderate bitterness, slight fruity and floral, with crispy malts. Middle part has more pale malts with a good flavor of Golding hops. Goes into a hoppy-perfumey finish with crisp pale malt notes.
