IPA that is super drinkable with a big dry hop character and plenty of malt body. If we could only produce one beer this would be it.

The taste initially reminds me of Goose Island IPA with its reassuringly woody resin, but then a soft, grapey, gooseberry fool taste emerges, and is really New Zealandy. The hops have a fantastic leafy, fresh quality (best before 22/1/14). Next, the 7%ness of the malt bill politely makes itself known, with oat & breadcrust. Couldn?t be better balanced. Really a world class IPA.

Draft at Ale&Hop, RBESG 2016. Near clear amber with an off white head. Aroma of fruity hops, caramel malt and light herbal hops. Flavour is the moderate sweet and bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation. [08-07-2016]

Prezentacja: przejrzyste z pyłem zawieszonym w płynie, złote, obfita piana dziurawi się i opada do trwałego kołnierza, średnio zdobi szkło;
Aromat: słodki - brzoskwinia, toffi, mieszanina przejrzałych owoców egzotycznych, krztyna alkoholu, rokitnik i tymianek;
Odczucie: ciało średnie ku niskiemu, średnio nasycone, z goryczkowym finiszem, lekko szczypiący w język i równie lekko rozgrzewający przełyk alkohol;
Smak: za aromatem plus toffi i silna grejpfrutowo-łodygowa goryczka, która po chwili łagodnieje i długo utrzymuje się na języku;
Ogólnie: zapach jest bardzo ładny i złożony, smak soczysty, goryczka nie najgorsza, przeszkadza za to przewijający się wszędzie alkohol.

adasko (1875) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Deep golden color, almost clear but has a lot of tiny yeast pieces floating around. Tiny white head, nice lacing. Awesome fruity aroma, full of mango and pineapple notes. Touch of green, pine notes in the back. Taste is quite complex. Seems to be super dry in the beginning, but after a second you definately can feel the sweet malty background, which then is immediately covered by hops. Full of super matured mango and pineapple. Bitterness is on medium high level, 50 IBU declared on the label seems to be a bit understated. It’s not session beer for sure, it’s not that drinkable, but gives a lot of joy. It’s something between west coast IPA and already classic Imperial IPA. Great one!
