4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at Gollem in Antwerp. American style English IPA with thickly lacing, off-white, stable head and cloudy ochre blonde colour (the glass which was served to me, was apparently the end of the keg). Strong IPA aroma of orange juice and orange peel, grapefruit zest, strawberry, mango, wet leather, wet hay, field flowers, bitter honey, peach. Fruity, rich onset of pineapple, peach and gooseberry, a tad sweet but drying quickly, yeasty with a soft, juicy honeyish malt sweetness underneath; early finish of drying, resiny, citrus peel hops, long and peppery without bittering ’too’ deeply. Very elegant, perfectly balanced IPA, exemplary for its style.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Easter tasting @Igor’s place. 0.5 l bottle bought in Vrutak, Zagreb. Very light yellow and clear, unusual for an IPA, looks more like a lager with a steady white head. You can immediately fell the IPA in it’s aroma, very aromatic, floral and fruity. Sweet in the beginning, then bitter, but to light, watery, low carbonated. Not good enough.
