STEVIE_NIX (35) - - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle from cotteridge wines. this has a lovely hop aroma on pouring. Very resinous. Pours a dark amber with small white head. Taste is initially light but with a big hop bitterness coming in right after. Hints of spice then are overtaken by a real grapefruity peachy mouth. I enjoyed this the more i drank it. the taste remained in my mouth for a good while after. reminded me of Arbors Yakima valley from a few years back. pretty good id say.

An orange colour, a head is medium, dense and white. Balanced aroma with tropical fruits, mangos, grapefruits and some peaches, smooth. Taste has lots of grapefruits, other fruits, hint of glue. Medium bitterness. Quite dry end with some pine needles. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, fresh. Quite good, easy IPA.

Majek (371) - Ząbki, POLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Hazy, golden colour with medium stable head. Moderate aroma of citrus (grapefruit and lemon), piney and herbal with minimal malty background. Taste is light sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Long bitter finish. High carbonation. Light to medium body. Not bad stuuf, but I’ve expected much more.

Pours hazy deep dark orange. Initial carbonation but settles to a nice lacing. Aroma is citrus and apricot. Very well balanced bitterness turns to maltiness with a very nutty finish. Very very enjoyable beer!
