Tap @ Borefts 2013. Pours a murky, amber beer with a bubbly, off white head on top. Aroma of grapefruits, citrus and pines, with a big grassy hop influence. Flavor is bittersweet with some nice, light citric hop characters in there. Has some caramel sweetness present in the end of the flavor. Slightly alcoholic. Quite a decent brew.

On tap at BBF ’13. Hazy golden orange colour, off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity, citrus, lemon, floral hops, some caramel sweetness, malts. Flavour is light biscuits, lemon, flowers, citrus, light grapefruit, mango, nice bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. Nice DIPA.

@Borefts. Nice double IPA with fruity hops. Still, I expected a more special taste from these great hops. It felt like it lacked something.

Very interesting, flowery. A bitterness that stays for a while but never gets too bad, really good. First beer from this brewery, def not the last. At bbf13

Kosmokrator (475) - ITALY - SEP 20, 2013
Fantastico color ambrato-aranciato con un sontuoso cappello di schiuma bianca persistente. Aggredisce il naso con sentori freschi e fruttati di mango, ananas, papaya e albicocche secche; al palato un abboccato dolciastro cede rapidamente il posto ad un amaro mediamente intenso stracarico di luppoli fruttati, aromatici e delicatamente resinosi. Corpo medio, effervescenza morbida ma importante, setosa al palato... fantastica!

The colour is a bit off and misleading the taste is great, but missing something. It really fills you up. It says it's an ipa, and it's close, but not 100%. Would recommend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
