Derek881 (1129) - Riga, LATVIA - AUG 23, 2015
Poured from a bottle purchased at Porgu in Tallinn, Estonia into a short trumpet glass to drink. The beer had an amber-copper color with a large foamy white head that had good retention and very good cling and lacing. Its aroma had a big citrus and floral hops blend with notes of pine, and was fresh and crisp. It had a bitter grainy and citrus taste with some lighter sour earthy and floral tastes. The beer was a bit creamy and wet with average carbonation and thickness, with a fuller mouthfeel.

A bit too old sample, bbe 250815. Long lasting white foamy head. Golden orange beer, a bit reddish, semi clear. Looks great. Aroma is sweet, more of malts cause of the date, some piney notes with citrus. Taste is sweet sugary, fruity, malts, honey(?). Mouthfeel medium, finish ok bitter. Quite smooth one, wish it was fresher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zvsn (1106) - ISRAEL - AUG 5, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 Bottle. Slightly hazy orange-amber golden color, small but stable off white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma, tropical fruits, pine and citrus in the nose, light green and malty notes. Sweetish malty start, pleasant hops fruitiness, more mango and pineapple like flavors, light caramel notes, medium high bitter finish, well balanced. Medium bodied, not very dry and quite drinkable. Solid IPA.

Draught. Hazy golden in color, off-white head. Tropical fruityness, lemon and bit of malty notes in aroma. Feels fresh. Light grassy bitterness and citrus in taste. Slightly dry bitter aftertaste, yet maintaining good drinkability. Tasty one.

Pours a fairly clear orangey golden color, topped with a rather small off-white head. Nice and distinct fruity aroma - sweet tropical fruits like mango. Taste is characterized by a quite decent hoppy bitterness from the start to finish. Short lived bitter herbs in the aftertaste. Nice, hoppy, bitter.
