Senka (564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 29, 2014
50cl bottle. BBE 13.08.15 Aroma of pines, iron, brie cheese and old socks. Looks like a premum lager - golden with a thick, creamy head and load os carbonation. Sweet and hoppy, yet bitter. Sweetness prevails. Slightly off-puting taste of alcohol and poridge. Fruity and with a loads of citrus fruit. Malt is also strong in aroma and taste. Smooth texture. Medium body. Mixed feelings with this one - parts of it I love, and parts of it I really do not like. I doubt that I will go for another bottle. If on tap - maybe.

Golden, refreshing, full aroma, strong, very tasty, rich, complex, fruity, mainly grapefruit.....The only bad thing about it is that it killed theirs normal IPA for me.. It tastes like better version of that one.

UXO (414) - CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy pale gold (on the first glass, undisturbed straight from the cellar - the second glass had more fines, and was more of a cloudy deep gold) with a fat finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, spotty lacing. Nose is pine and tropical fruit, grapefruit and lemon, light sweet malt, faint floral. Taste is similar, starting sweet but rapidly overtaken by moderate bitter, perhaps a little more floral presence as the pint progresses. Medium body, moderate sustained carbonation, and a dry-ish finish. Decently balanced English-style IIPA - which is to say, bitter without being a palate-wrecking hop bomb. Nice hop presence that isn’t overwhelming, and a very well-integrated ABV that never intrudes. There’s definite citrus, but not to the extent one typically finds in A/IIPA’s, and there’s a floral component that lightens the impact, too. Worth trying, and I’d have another should the opportunity present.

Grzesiek79 (3306) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Dobre India Pale Ale z mocnym aromatem zywiczno cytrusowym, ananasowym. W smaku gozkawe malo slodowe z kwaskowa ostra i limonkowa nuta. Piana niewielka ale dobrej jakosci. Oblepia niesamowicie szklanice robia wasate znaki. Kolor zolty jaskrawy malo metny. Finisz goryczkowy i dlugu.

NonOperational (51) - ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Overall I did enjoy this, bit I was disappointed because I expected a lot from a ’marquee’ type IPA from one of my favourite brewers. It had some pungency in the hop aroma, bit the tropical, sweaty tones we know and love came across as rather muddy and ill-defined. Also out looks like a 100% base malt beer, so comes across as an imperial PA, not an imperial IPA. All in all, the slightly weak malt was in harmony with the slightly weak hops.

SzopPiwosz (163) - - SEP 10, 2014
Wrocław IVFDP: Piana: Biała, drobno- i średniopęcherzykowa. Niezbyt obfita. Kolor: Jasnozłote, klarowne. Zapach: Intensywny, owoce tropikalne, świeży, rześki. Na czele mango i papaja. Nuty drożdżowe. Smak: Spora, wyrazista ciasteczkowa słodycz. Tekstura: Gładkie, nie pozostawia uczucia ściągania. Lekko rozgrzewający alkohol. Nasycenie: Średnie. Goryczka: Średnio-wysoka, mocno skontrowana. Pijalność: Wysoka. To piwo było słusznie chwalone. Zaskakującym elementem była jasność piwa zarówno w sensie koloru jak i panelu smaków. Goryczka okazała się konkretna, ale zdominowana słodyczą. Bardzo dobre.
