3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 11-27-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a very hazed orange amber color with a big two finger off-white head. The head has a really nice level of retention. The big bubbles that compose the head slowly pop over time to leave a very nice level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is rather light overall. It consists of citrus and piney hops smells as well as a little bit of a biscuit aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and slight tangerine and tropical fruit sweetness. Mixed with these smells is a grapefruit hop bitter flavor. More toward the middle a lighter caramel sweetness and some pine hop flavors come to the tongue. The bitter pine and grapefruit hop tastes get rather strong at the end and leave a bitter hop taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to just above average side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are pretty nice of the style as they accentuate the hop and malt without taking too much away from the very light sweet fruit flavors of the brew.
Overall – A nice IPA. It starts out on the smoother and beadier side but comes rather bitter as the taste goes on.

Aroma floral. Coloração âmbar e turva, com boa formação de espuma (ótima retenção da mesma). Excelente carbonatação. Sabor bem amargo. Floral e cítrico. Retrogosto amargo e cítrico. Ótima opção de IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Orange, hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head, that leaves a ring-shaped lacing. Aroma of citrus, orange, red berries, some tropical fruits, caramel, grass. Taste is pretty much the same. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a low carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, with lemon zest, grass and some sweet malt notes. Nice one. Overall nothing special, but a smooth, fruity and also malty IPA, with a great drinkability.

Now this is an IPA that is not for the faint hearted. Strictly for hops heads only. Aftertaste lasts for several minutes. Loving every sip.

660ml bottle sample (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Pleasant fruity hop aroma, but kinda dull. More interesting taste. Pale, small head. Good hopping. A nice cramel base, but plenty of aromatic and bitter hops on top. Refreshing. Good use of melanoidin, I’m not normally a fan - doesn’t have the sticky flapjackiness of the malts which I sometimes get from that type. As you can tell from the 14 overall, there’s something that just works right in this brew.

Cloudy with a burnt orange colour. Thin white head with really stubborn lace. Sweet and fruity aroma, very slight. Malty initially with strong bitterness to end. Good body and good carbonation, coats well.
