Piwo butelkowe. Aromat mango i melona. Ładna kremowa piana o konsystencji bitej śmietany, przepiękny lacing. Kolor ciemny bursztyn. W smaku owoce cytrusowe, mango, melon, marakuja potem goryczkowa kontra o średnim natężeniu. Genialnie pijalne, średnio nasycone, świetna AIPA.

Pours amber color, almost clear, with huge tan head. In nose some pines and citrus hops, but not very intensive. In mouth, hops are much more present. Nice bitterness, medium body, quite high carbonation. Very refreshing and drinkable beer.

Courtesy of and shared with Hrabren & Anja, huge thanks!
POured a clear copper/bronze colour with a tiny creamy white head. Sweet, sweaty tropical fruit aroma, vague caramel from the malts and some dust. Yup, somewhat sweet for an IPA - as expected, as 15° usually nets you 7% beers, with candyish malty notes. Ashy notes, more tropical fruit from the hops, slightly earthy, dusty, solid bitterness in the finish. Well, this is a very solid IPA. 3.5-3.6. Good job Pinta!

Pours amber, hazy, with nice, long head. Nice aroma of citrus, pine, american hops, with some malts in the background. Taste is medium full, bitter, but could be more in my opinion, very drinkable. Some time ago it was one of the best if not the best IPA in Poland, but right now there are better examples. Still a good AIPA

Breath-taking aroma of citrus. Color of dark amber. Bitter taste covers other taste sensations. By all means, outstanding beer.

Draught@Gastropub Nordic, Tampere. Amber colour, mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is fruits, some floral notes along with nectar and some slight notes of alcohol as well. Flavour is quite strong on the sweet side of both malts and hops. Apart from the big sweetness this is actually a quite nice brew.

It’s pretty difficult to rate this beer. Why? I took a few bottles in october last year. It was a very very good AIPA. Maybe a litle bit to dark for this style, but ok. I just opened the last one. Today (12.02.2014) it’s no more an AIPA (expire date 22.4.2014). Aroma is overlaid with toffee. The intensive Bitterness is already there, but the american hop character is far far away. I am afraid that the US boys (Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe and Citra) were killed by the german caramel malt corps (Weyermann Pale Ale, Carahell and Carapils). ;) Łot a piti!
However. My first impression was positive.
