Smell ia very aromatic. Pleasant sweet with a touch of koriander. Pours with medium head, very nice golden colour. Taste is very good. Low carbonation and a full lasting sweet sensation. A very very good Slovenian beer!

Pelicons’s flagship brew pours a lightly hazy, rich goldish-copper color, topped with plenty of foam that retains very well and a complex malty body. It’s a good IPA with a pleasant aroma and hoppy finish with bitterness built in on the backend which is probably achieved through extensive dry-hopping.

Bottle. Nice deep hazy orange colour with a diminishing white head. The aroma is heavy grapefruit, orange. Nice! The flavour is sweet citrus, with some caramel malt and a bit of a menthol note. Quite good.

Cloudy golden color, average sized white head. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruits, maybe a hint of pine. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Pleasant bitter finish. Maybe not enough bitterness, but tasty enough.

Bottled 500ml. -at Bar Cameral, Koper. Cloudy orange/golden coloured, medium sized creamy white head, pleasant hoppy nose. Moderate malty and pleasant fruity hoppy with grapefruity notes in the finish. Not that good as Marko rated it but decent brew indeed.

Marko (4056) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottled at Sir William’s, Ljubljana (huge thanks Mišo for sharing this one!). Poured a murky golden amber body with a small white head. Full, lovely aroma, orange, herbal notes, creamy, ending dry. A fine assault of aroma hops indeed. The taste is more of the same, yet, as expected,, with a dry bitter assault, notes of gum, elder, all in all, better than I expected, a great beer in every way!
