A friend brought some bottles from Athens. A quite good IPA. I would like to be more aromatic and more bitter. Only that.

Qualche anno fa era una ottima birra, nonostante venga utilizzata acqua dissalata. Nel corso del tempo perÚ Ť andata a peggiorare ed adesso non Ť assolutamente degna di nota

BlackHaddock (5658) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Cheers Mat for bringing a 75cl bottle to the Jan 2016 Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting. Dull orange pour, hazy body, off-white head. Yeasty and off-fruits in the nose and taste, weird fruity flavours weave in and out: herbal and different. A strange one really and difficult to score, not your usual IPA thatís for sure.

minutemat (3651) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
75cl bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Jan 16, courtesy of me. Thanks to Rouhlas for the trade. Pours a hazy orange with foamy head. Vibrant soapy lime and piss aroma. Interesting thorny floral hop profile with orange pith and bitter herbal notes. Itís flavoursome, but not sure itís my bag.

WhatDaddy (52) - Volos, GREECE - JAN 17, 2016
0,75lt bottle @ Bier-Station, Larissa, Greece Citrus Citrus Citrus - a lot of it in your mouth! I liked it, but to be honest itís unbalanced with the bitter factor being almost a lonely player. Nice aroma, but not heavy, good carbonation, medium body. Aftertaste bitter and quite long. Not bad and Iíí choose it again.

A very unique hop blend. Bits of apricot and orange peel. Pours a dark, hazy golden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange/dark amber. Big off-white head good retention. Pithy, citrus nose. Huge bitter hops, grapefruit & orange peel. Quite a thick mouth feel due to unfiltered nature. Nearest taste to this of a popular brew IMO is Sierra nevada torpedo. ABV is actually 6.5%

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2015 Cloudy yellow-orange with a thick light orange head. Peaches, grapes, pineapple, light pine needles. Moderate sweet with a fruity bitter finish. Smooth palate. Very drinkable, fruity, refreshing. Thanks to my sister for bringing me this from Santorini!

Gerbeer (2815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark hazy amber with full creamy head. Aromas of sweet malts, caramel and light tropical fruit. Flavors of toasted malts, sourdough, bitter grapefruit. Nice.
