33cl bottle @ Rooie Dop Fab Friday. Hazy orange copper color, minimal white head. Aroma bread, citrus, slight fruit, full of bitter hops flavor. Heavy bitternes, moderated grapefruit kind. Full body, average carbonation, strong, never lasting bitter finish. Very extreme bitter IPA, a whole evening flavor, I really like it.

Doskonały aromat cytrusowo-żywiczny od chmieli i bardzo przyjemny aromat od słodu i alkoholu, który przywodzi na myśl maliny lub truskawki. Bardzo ładna piana i lacing, kolor bursztynowy. W smaku odzwierciedlenie tego co w aromacie, czyli chmiele i ten charakterystyczny smak związany z wyczuwalną maliną, do tego kontrująca goryczka, dobrze spasowana. Ogólnie bardzo dobre piwo, dające sporo doznań aromatycznych i smakowych - bardzo ładny bukiet, w którym każdy znajdzie coś dla siebie.

Pelnia slodowosc, wyrazisty smak slodowo chmielny, przy czym wyczuwalna spora ilosc owocow cytrusowych. Mango, pomarancz, grejfrut i nawet granat. Tymi estrami takze wyraznie pachnialo to piwo, Wyglad to rozowawo pomaranczowy metny kolor z niewielka pianka. Alkohol ukryty. Tresciwe i przy tym pijalne.

Gurthnar (4077) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle at 100 piv. Aroma lots of hops, citrusy. Also lots of maltiness, biscuity, toffee. Hazy deep orange colour. Stable head. The most noticeable thing for me here is the overall intensity of all the flavours. Same as in aroma, not overly complicated, but rich, rather full bodied but also rather bitter. Very high bitterness overcomes high residual sweetness. Alcohol is noticeable yet feels mellow, adding a layer of pleasant warmth. Excellent.

Bottle from 100 piv. Hazy orange colour white stable head. Aroma hops, citrusy, fresh, lemon, tangerine, orange, caramel and bisquity malt tones. Taste is complex and rich, high bitterness in contrast with full malty bisquity taste. Full body. Alcohol in taste, warming. Bitter aftertaste. Very good.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Hazy orange color beer with a beige, big and lasting head. Aroma is malty and hoppy, with citrus, fruit and grass notes, together with spicy reminders. Flavor is very sweet with a nice bitterness balance. Body is oily and carbonation is very low. Pretty dry finish with herbal notes.
