superspak (3164) - Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2012
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled 10/2/2012. Pours lightly hazy bright golden amber color with a very nice 2-3 finger fluffy white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon, citrus rind, grass, floral, herbal, and light piney spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great hop complexity and balance; very dank smelling. Taste of pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, and herbal spiciness. Fair amount of piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, citrus zest, floral, grass, citrus rind, pine, bread, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice hop flavor balance and complexity; nice malt/bitterness balance; hardly any cloying hop bitterness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a sticky, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an awesome wet hop IPA! Great dank hop complexity and balance; very smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

Aromat bardzo świeżego chmielu i ziół. Barwa złota, zamglone. Mega czapa piany! W smaku żółte owoce, zioła, herbata, cukierki ślazowe. Konkretna ziołowa goryczka.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bomber into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours fizzy, cloudy straw yellow that fills my glass with 40% beer and 60% barmy fluff. Aromas of yeasty sourdough and pilsner malt, grass, hot hay, and old books. Wheaty, tangy, and "green" vegetal flavor. Ambivalent hops are uber-grassy. Salty, yeasty, wet bamboo, and a touch of smoky/plasticy phenols. Charry finish. Sharp, minerally, seltzery palate. My rating numbers are perhaps too generous. Every facet of this beer can be summed by one word: CRUDE.

gezugowa (8) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015 does not count
Pours a clear, pale orange with a lot of lasting head. Aroma is sweet and floral a touch of grapefruit. Floral to start with a dry bitterness following, very fruity overall. A very drinkable ipa and glad it comes in such a (comparatively) large bottle

Swaroga (1636) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2015
Butelka 66cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne o brzydkim kolorze brudnej pomarańczy. Piana jest spora, mięsista i nieregularna. NOS : piwo ma intensywne aromaty. Dominują nuty mango, limonki, pieprzu, dużo zielonej herbaty i rooibos. Do tego delikatna tarta w tyle ale piwo w zapachu zapowiada raczej wytrawną IPę. USTA : mocno nasycone co lubię w orzeźwiających piwach i to tutaj pasuje ze względu na ...wytrawność. Konsystencja jest średnio gęsta. Herbaciane i gorzkie. Brakuje troszeczkę więcej nut słodowych by piwo było bardziej wyważone. Gorycz jest dosyć ściągająca jak skórka limonki i gorzka herbata. Ogólnie wytrawne i gorzkie ale za to nieźle orzeźwiające. ODCZUCIA : piwo poza równowagą. Tak jak mnie całkiem smakuje ta bezkompromisowość tak pewnie znajdzie się wielu co myśli odwrotnie. Nasycenie jest zaskakująco spore jak na IPę rodem z USA. Po kilku łykach nawet mi troszeczkę przeszkadza ale to akurat łatwo zniwelować wzburzając piwo w szklance. OCENA : smak : 6/10 pijalność : 7/10

Bottled 650ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. My bottle shared with Yves, Fran and Marko. Cloudy orange coloured, big white head, mild grapefruity nose. Moderate malty, grapefruity fruity hoppy and light herbal with intensive bitterness in the finish and long lasting bitter aftertaste. Decent IPA.
