BlackHaddock (5387) - 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 that’s for sure.

minutemat (3274) - 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. It’s flavoursome, but not sure it’s my bag.

WhatDaddy (42) - 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 it’s 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 I’’ choose it again.

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%

ChtiBreizh (393) - Rennes, FRANCE - SEP 17, 2015
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 (2686) - 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.

fajry (1324) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 17, 2015
Fľaša. Zlatá farba, skoro bez peny. Vôňa ovocná, kvasnicová, chmeľová. Chuť sladová, jemne sladká, trošku štiplavá na jazyku. Príjemná jemne horká a na jazyku suchá dochuť.

rusos (374) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow golden. Aroma hops, fruits, yeast. Taste hops, fruits-strawberries, yeast. Bitter aftertaste. Taste was quite unclean for me- to much yeast.

Brew_Cat (107) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 14, 2015
75cl shared bottle at a friend’s house. Pours hazy orange with small lasting white head. Complex aromas reminding me of Greek white wine, some wine sourness on the tongue as aftertaste too. Caramel malt leaves characteristic sweetness but hops take over after all, summer fruits like grapes and apricot, heavily hoppy with the expected bitterness, pine, grass, citrus and, possibly, grapefruit, creamy mouthfeel, dry and bitter finish . A well balanced brew. Was excellently paired with fresh pasta and homemade tomato-basil sauce from homegrown vegetables (thanks for the dinner!) Probably the best Greek IPA I’ve had so far, also rare to find in Athens. A very refreshing stunning brew from a promising microbrewery that has set high standards for the local industry. Thumbs up, Santorini!
