4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2014 (33 cl bottle at the barking dog) Pours a cloudy apricot with medium, white head. Good retention, lace and regeneration. Aroma is freshly hopped with potent fruity and herbal notes. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium body and an intense, juniper-dominated finish. Flavour follows the nose initially and then the juniper afterbooster kicks in with a long, dry and bitter finish. Very well integrated and definitely something that opened my eyes to the use of juniper as a hop complementary.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fajne choć nie do końca jest to owocowe piwo. Dla mnie to IPA. Fajna gra i rownowaga miedzy slodycza a chmielnoscia a zwłaszcza kwaskowoscia która pochodzi z rokitnika. Ten dziki i kwaskowy owoc w drugiej fazie i daje uczucie kwaskowosci delikatnej bo słodycz rownowazy to uczucie. Dlugi finisz kwaskowo slodki. Chmielnosc dodatkowo w aromacie, grejfruty wyczuwalne daja wrazenie ze to piwo owocowe. Dla mnie to hybryda lambicka z IPA. ale tylko smakowo i zapachowo. Rokitnik dobrze znam i jego walory zdrowotne dlatego polecam to piwo dbającym o zdrowie.

330ml bottle @Lawendowa 8 Gdańsk. Aromas of berry fruit, grass, some tracing herbs and caramel. Reminds me a little about wet forest. Pours orange gold with white head that stays a while and leaves some lacing. Taste is tart, with medium bitterness - mostly caramel, herbs and berries. Doesn’t feel full nor empty, medium, on the lower side. Overall interesting, may try it again later.

Bottle. Teku. Dirty amber, highly hazy with medium, dirty white head. Good Head retention and lacing. Aroma is very fruity - mainly berries, peachy, like cold ice tea, somewhere in the background tropical fruits. Taste is acidic (fruity) and moderately bitter and tart. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is acid and tart. In overall very nice fruit beer, refreshing.

On tap. Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head. Taste is medium sour, light bitter. I haven’t distinguished much in aroma as nothing was really dominant there. Acceptable, but overpriced.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral, citrus and resin aroma - really quite refreshing. Colour is spectacular, deep orange with a solid, white head. Sour and bitter flavour, both citrus, grapefruit and orange. Medium body, quite lively, sour finish. A very interesting beer, definitely not your average IPA.

The aroma is that of centennial: resin above all (just adore it!), citrus, some tropical fruit hints... It’s just like smelling some fresh hop. Hazy light amber color, medium white foam. I can’t smell the juniper berries but they show up while tasting with their peculiar sour character (which I actually don’t love in a hop-forward beer). Medium bitterness, lightly sour, medium body, thin feel, lively carbonation, astringent finish.
I think it would’ve been better without the berries since they don’t give any complexity but they just increase the sharpness of this beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 0,33L bottle from Craftissimo at Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a hazy, orange colour (from the seabuckthorn?) Medium and foamy white head which slowly fades away and leaves lacing on the glass. Aroma: Blossom and floral aromas from the Centennial hop. Refreshing berry smell from the juniper with notes of peach, tangerine, grapefruit and pine. Taste: Fruity and zesty flavour at first. Then the powerful sourness and bitterness from the seabuckthorn and juniper dominate the rest of the taste. Palate: Medium to full body with sticky mouthfeel. The carbonation is moderate with sour and bitter juniper aftertaste surrounding the mouth and throat. I am totally amazed by the juniper and seabuckthorn flavours which have blended in perfectly with the Centennial and Columbus hops to provide subtle bitterness and rich aromas. They have elevated this fruity IPA to another level. Looking forward to tasting more innovative and mind-blowing beers from To Ol.

Pours a cloudy pale orange. Aroma is filled with flowery hops and sour berries. Has a full mouth feel. Hop grapefruit bitterness quickly subsides to sour berries. Interesting and refreshing.
