mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Punertavan kuparinen, hieman samea olut kohtalaisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu kevyen greippinen ja eksoottisen hedelmäinen, karamellinen sekä pähkinäinen. Maku pehmeän karamellinen, mutta ennen kaikkea vahvan greippinen pitkää greippistä ja katkeraa jälkiliukua myöten. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma, "ihan kiva", muttei mitenkään erikoinen.

dnicolaescu (1935) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 26, 2016
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy red-copper, creamy off-white head. The aroma is not very strong but juicy and grapefruity, aromatic malts without too much sugar/caramel. The taste is similar - juicy grapefruit and malts, but no real sugar sweetness. The finish is dry pithy bitter, without spicy young/green zesty hops. Not too bright, but well-constructed and easy-drinking indeed.

Great taste. Well balanced. Fruits, forest, cognac type post flavour. Soapy top. Maybe the best IPA this summer.
