500ml bottle thanks very much to madmitch76 for throwing this beauty in as a bonus. 2008 harvest. Pours a hazy orange with yellow hue, medium off white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, slight floral, pine, grass, and yeast. I started drinking this before I read the description, so first tastes were a bit of a shock. Once I read the label, I realized exactly what I was drinking. This is quite a nice brew. Wet hopped, bottle conditioned with saison yeast, giving it a pretty unique character. Hop profile is very flavorful and enjoyable, slight tartness from the yeast, and a nice malt backbone for some balance. Mouthfeel is slightly slick and finishes slightly dry and bitter. Very nice.

hrabren (82) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 6, 2015
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.
