Rask0lnikov (159) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2016
Amber colour. A bit hazy. Medium head, which does not stay at all. Nice and powerful aroma. Apricots, pineapple, tangerine and other citruses. Peachy beginning. Nice spicy tingeling on tongue in the middle. Citrussy and bitter finish. Rather light bodied, easy drinkable, refreshing beer. Estonian classics, which one should enjoy time to time.

Hazy orange color with dense medium head. Strong hoppy aroma with pine, citrus, tropical fruits and malts. Really good! Taste is perfectly balanced with tropical fruits, malts and hops to give nice soft bitter end. Full bodied, soft carbonation. One of the best new IPAs that i have tried, fantastic beer!
