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!

500 ml bottle acquired by Werckmeister for me, thanks!
Dark amber, cloudy body, with a big, frothy, lacing, light beige head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, resin, pineapple, some berries, biscuit.
Tastes of grapefruit, grass, herbs, pine, resin, some tropical fruits, biscuit.
Medium, quite oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, grassy, resinous, piney, also a bit sweet malty.

Nice, although nothing special. The nose is quite lovely, with nice fruits and pine, while the taste is too unclean, herbal for me. Overall quite quaffable, but I’ve had better IPAs from Slovenia.

Golden reddish colur with firm, creamy colour. Aroma of Citrous, hops, some tropical fruits. Similar is flavour with well balanced bitterness. After first bottle I though it is a little bit too evident or prevalent in aftertaste, but the second one was acceptable. Good brew for a home-made.

Hazy, dark yellow orange appearance. Hoppy aroma, a bit of a disappointment on the taste. Not overly special IPA.

martinpelicon (1) - - OCT 10, 2014 does not count
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.
