Pours a nice golden amber orange with thin white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and resin. Taste was a bit more citrusy than expected, but a nice treat. Nice balance of malt included to make for an overall nice IPA.

Bottles. Best by date is 12/23/14. So take this with a grain of salt. Pours clear honey golden color, white/beige head. Aroma is mango, grapefruit, tropical fruits. The degeneration is apparent. But not too bad. Flavor is a pretty much a malt bomb. I haven’t had a non-fresh IPA in a long time. This is caramel malts, toffee, orange, grapefruit citrus come through in the middle and the finish. More like a light Barleywine than an IPA at this point. Still enjoyable and I tend to think this is great fresh. Will have to revisit fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bel colore ambrato arancione. Odore fruttato, leggermente resino es erbaceo. Sapore molto amaro, poco stemperato dai malti, leggermente allappante e resinoso. La bottiglia non ha fondo, quindi credo che la birra sia stata filtrata.

12oz bottles in Victory sampler 2013 and poured in What’s Brewing workshop 3 TÜ, 2015. Citrus caramel bonbon meets friendly herbal leaf resins in taste and mouthfeel. Slight Simcoe/Centennial dankness, pungency when older. Could be more expressive in aroma, although that might be the trade routes speaking.

Direi decisamente un bel colore, e anche un bel naso che lasciano presagire molto bene. Ma poi in bocca non mi convince molto, un pò troppo sbilanciata.

Pours golden with creamy lasting head. Aroma is beautifully sweet and in-your-face hoppy. Beautiful citrus nose with spices lingering afterwards. Flavour is very sweet caramel with piercing hop bitterness. Beautifully balanced. Perfect for quaffing or sipping. Malt flavours come through prominently if you let it warm a little to about 10 Celsius.

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.
