Saeglopur (714) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 26, 2015
750 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister. Thanks Stefan!
Orange, hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head.
Very fruity aroma of citrus, peach, passion fruit, some glue notes, some smooth, sweet malts.
Tastes of grapefruit, peach, subtle pine, biscuit, honey.
Quite light, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, zesty, a bit piney, a bit malty.

Tasty. Especially the nose is really lovely, full fruity. Drinks pretty easy despite the higher ABV. Enjoyed this a bit more than Raptor IPA, because it is fruitier and a bit fuller and overall I can understand why this is the highest rated Czech IPA at the moment.

Mega piwo. Bardzo fajny cytrusowy aromat. Lekko mętne, świetny kolor, trwała piana i fajny lacing. W smaku jest jeszcze lepiej. Kolejne udane piwo z mojego ulubioulubionego, czeskiego browaru:)

Opaque gold, medium white head. Some yeast residue on last pour. Medium strength US hop aroma, some maltiness. Flavour is bitter, but not excessively. Some sweetness, grainy notes. Finishes bitter and a bit malty. Decent.

BenOver (148) - SLOVENIA - APR 5, 2015
A very nice beer. Pours golden with moderate head. Elderflower aroma overpowers the citrus aroma. Taste is very refreshing, and has a very well balanced body. A nice dry kick finishes the drinking experience.

Bottle 0,75l from Base Camp Praha; golden body, medium white head, little hazy. Nice fruity aroma – citrus, mango, mixture of tropical fruits. Taste is sweet, bitter, finish is little dry and strong bitter. Hoppy, citrusy, notes of mango again, malty sweetness, honey. Full body, medium carbonation.
An amazing IPA, high drinkable, perfect balanced.
