4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at "na 7.schode", Zilina. Amber clear with medium persistent white head. Sweet aroma of resin, spruce, caramel, toasty, biscuits and some red fruit. Taste is moderate bitter, light sweet with notes of spruce and pine, biscuity. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Very drinkable, I won’t say it’s 6.7% ABV.

Tap. Amber body with white head. Aroma is hoppy fruity citrus. Taste is the same with some nice malts backbone. Aftertaste is nice balanced between bitterness and malt sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours almost amber with a thick tan head. Aroma is more bread and cereal than hops. Surprisingly complex. Starts bitter and stays bitter with serious grapefruit and dank hops, but then a soft, almost tropical fruit finish that comes in after the dankness. It’s a tad too bitter overall for me, but impressive nonetheless.

Bottle pour. Pours a dark orange, half a finger head. Not much aroma to speak of. Floral hop taste balanced by plenty of malt. Pretty good.

Good and hoppy. Nice aroma. Would probably rate higher if I hadn’t had so many ipas lately.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy dark orange with an average size foamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops with a touch of malt to balance it out. Taste is flavourful-- citrus hops galore but still nicely balanced with malt. Medium bodied. Easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from DMs with BB 3/11/15. Clear dark orange with an ample white head. Hoppy aromas with stonefruit (apricot), pine resin and citrus to the fore on top of a caramel biscuity malt bill. Taste is balanced bittersweetness with a substantially resinous dry hop finish that lingers. Palate is medium-fullish bodied and spritely. A great American-style IPA.
