CanCrusher (933) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle 0,50L. Light brown - yellow, hazy cloudy colour with creamy white head. Very hoppy aroma: grapefruit, mango, elderberries and little caramel. Fruity aroma goes hand in hand with hoppy bitterness. Moderate bitter taste turns into heavy bitter aftertaste. This beer is very well balanced and alcohol is hidden, too.

Kita (1899) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head and lively bubbles. Aroma of spicy hops, strawberry, lychee and other tropical fruits. Taste starts sweet biscuity, followed by refreshing hoppy and fruity. Mouthfeel is astringent, alcohol is well hidden, while aftertaste is long and strong bitter. Full body, thick texture and moderate carbonation in palate. Excellent...

Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
One of the finest around! Darker side of golden with creamy white head. Beautiful aroma, fairly bold with a great mixture of tropical fruits (pineapple, grapefruit, mango) with some tangerine, grass and pine highlights. Good full body and above average carbonation. Good clean, but wholesome malt backbone leads to a great bustling fruit hop character and well balance bitterness.

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.

50cl bottle @ home from Bert’s Bierhuis Biltstraat, Utrecht. Body is opalescent yellow, head is medium, white, fizzy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is pineapple, flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruits, lemon peel, quinine. Medium sweet, medium to heavy hoppy bitter. Finish is long lasting tropical fruits and citrus hoppy medium to heavy bitter. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Easy, refreshing, beginning and finishing taste is quite the same, very tasty, great hoppy beer.

Alphadelic (2165) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Hazy gold with a lovely film of head that stacks up at the edge of the glass. Very fresh and green hoppy aromas twinned with the sweetness of honeydew melon and tingles of lemon. In the mouth is sends prickles running all over my tongue. with sweet mango fruits and a sweet honey coating on the tongue. The coating turns to a harsh and very long bitter finish of intensely dry hops. Lovely fresh beer with a real kick. Plenty of heady alcohol that doesn’t impair the flavours at all. Very fresh and light but WOW that is hoppy.
