Piotr (56) - POLAND - MAR 27, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 Very hoppy and bitter, like proper imperial/dipa but easy to drink. Nice head and clear colour. Surprisingly, the taste of alcohol not as significant as expected, really enjoyable!

Szopeen (230) - Toruń, POLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Barwa jasnego złota, z początku nalewa się idealnie klarowne, końcówka jest już lekko zmętniona. Niezła piana, zostawia ślady na szkle. Aromat słodki, ananas, mango, generalnie owoce tropikalne przeważają. W smaku natomiast mamy bardzo przyjemną kontrę cytrusową od chmieli. Piwo raczej wytrawne, goryczka średnia. No i alkohol, kompletnie niewyczuwalny. Nie wierze, że to piwa ma 10%, smakuje na jakieś 6-7, przez co jest bardzo zdradliwe.

martin00sr (2390) - Haderslev, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2016
Clear amber, white froth. Aroma has mandarin, light caramel and some vanilla notes in the long nose. Very fruity, seems quite fresh. Hoppy flavour, mango and mandarin with a solid, slightly herbal, malty backing. Mouthfeel is light, finish is long and nicely bitter. ABV is nicely controlled. Very drinkable, very nice.

Marduk (5402) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 15, 2016
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga). Clear amber color. Medium size, fluffy white head, stays. Fruity, sweet, acidic hops in aroma. Sweet, fruity, citric hops and some caramel in taste. Citric hops and sugar in aftertaste. Hoppy bitterness. Drinkable brew.

FatPhil (12782) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2016
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
On pouring, a really lovely tropical fruit aroma, pineapple at the sharp end, and mango at the heavy end. That’s pretty much worth a 7. But in the glass, it’s just flat and dull, a swirl to bring out the esters brings out some acetone instead. Some almond. Medium palate, pleasant carbonation. Simple tropical fruit hoppy taste, barest minimum malts to support that. Got some mint later in the aroma, which I hate normally, but it’s not ruining this. Finish is pleasantly bitter, just gentle resiny tingle. Kinda thin and simple, and WHAT THE FUCK?!?!? 10% no freaking way, Even the alcohol test only brings out bitter resiny hops. Drinkability massive, super massive, for a 10% beer. Dang, Proef really know what they’re doing.

Scrumpy369 (258) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle at csakajo. Hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Nose of honey and flowes (acacia mainly). Taste is medium bitterness with low sweetness. Some honey. Reminds me of honey-negro. Lovely dipa.

Aroma of pine, citrus, grass. Pale to golden colour (lovely). Hazy. Frothy head, approx 2 cm. Bone dry and bitter. Long, long after taste, multi layered. Final taste far back and on both sides of tongue. Exceptional beer.

angelkostvo (1071) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 25, 2016
Light orange colour, white head. Aroma of orange, lemon, resin. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter. LIght body, slick texture, soft to average carbonation. The alcohol is soooo well hidden, its like magic.

KW92 (1067) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 23, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, opalizujące. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, średnio trwała. Nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Dość intensywny. Cytrusy, słody, karmel. W tle owoce (ananas) oraz zioła.
SMAK: Owoce (dojrzały ananas). Kontra cytrusowa. Długi owocowo-cytrusowy posmak. Goryczka wysoka, nieco zalegająca. Jak na 10%, to alkohol jest bardzo dobrze wkomponowany w całość, nawet specjalnie nie grzeje w przełyk.
OGÓLNIE: Jestem pod wrażeniem jak dobrze można ukryć przeszło 10 %. Gdybym miał oszacować to powiedział bym, że jest to 7 - 8 % maksymalnie! Niezwykle zdradliwe piwo.

Demens (127) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 18, 2016
0,33l bottle. Hazy orange colour with slowly disappearing white head. Aroma: flower, citrus, yeast, candy sugar, a pleasure to smell. Wonderful. Taste: Sweet malty start (with a lot of citrus flavours) then the bitterness domintes. Very hoppy taste but perfectly balanced, a pleasure to drink. Medium carbonation, full body. Long bitter finish. I can’t feel the high alcohol %. Amazing beer.
