Slight haze and orange in colour. Pungent hoppy aroma with resin and pineapple. Medium bodied brew with classic IPA bitterness and a malty backbone. Good stuff, must be great fresh.

Thanks to my Summer Secret Santa MisoW for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass very zippy, very very yeasty, huge head. Starts moldy-malty due to all the yeasty. Hoppy bitter background, some grapefruit notes. Finish could be more balanced, dry and bitter. Not my favourite.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Homebrew it is, but mainstreamed under tag IPA. Pours medium dark amber with beige thick, soapy top. Aroma- medium intense tropical fruit, grapefruit alike tones, sweet overall, with every sip aroma vanishes super quick untill flavor becomes malty medium sweet, herbal-resiny deep bitter, more towards aftertaste. Dry finishing mouthfeel, not long lasting. Medium body, pulpy, spungee texture, average carbonation.

Capovane. Univerzalna ipa. Slabsia farba - iba mierne zakalene. Vona nabada k ochutnaniu. Chut vyrovnana, s pociatku potlacena horkost ktora vynikne az v dochuti. Chut medova az
