Powiem krótko: dla mnie to jest mistrzostwo świata. Piłem połowę butelki 330 ml sprowadzanej z Grecji i mnie zbiło z nóg :) Fantastyczna IPA, pogratulować Grekom.

Pite z importowanej butelki 330 ml. Najlepsza IPA, jaką piłem kiedykolwiek, zdecydowanie! Fantastyczny aromat, dużo cytrusów, jest intensywnie, nie ma żadnych nut karmelu, pełno owoców. Piwo prezentuje się bardzo dostojnie - bursztynowa barwa, bardzo ładna piana. Jest niesamowicie pijalne i przyjemne w smaku, cytrusowe, goryczka robi ogromną robotę, nie zostaje na podniebieniu, ale jest dość wysoka. Jak na IPA, moim zdaniem, ideał. 19/20 dlatego, że jednak idealny RIS zapewne jest lepszy :)

an amazing effort to balance citra and malt. Harmony blast !!! orange color, with sweet tropical fruit aromas. Intense taste, which bitterness totally balanced with malt's caramel and biscuit without loosing the ipa's character. medium body and low to medium carbonation. Easy to drink!!!! A piece of art!

Hands down one of the best brews out Greece, again showcasing what Greek gypsy brewers are able to do! It’s all about the nose on this one, not as much on an intensity level as it’s mostly about duration. This will smell nice by the time you are finishing up your pint, your nostrils will still be taking heavy fire. Fresh hops/grassy aroma, hint of sweet fruits or sweet oranges. Flavor is on the maltier side balancing hop bitterness and malt sweetness beautifully, with low carbonation tying it all together

Bottle, thanks to Nikos! Super happy to get ahold of this given its ratings to date (although they are dominated by reviewers with barely enough ratings to count. Hmmm). Pours surprisingly amber, mostly clear, medium off white head, that lasts a while and laces well. Aroma is nice, tropical citrus, mango, oranges, light biscuit malty base. Flavor is light plus sweet, light plus bitter, tropical and a tad malty. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. This is a well crafted beer that has no obvious flaws and avoids the potential pitfalls of Citra gone wrong. Too much of a malt backbone for my true sweet spot, but its a strong beer.

Bottle at Augoustos Bar. Pours clear orange to copper color with white head.Nice aroma of citrus, flowery, some tropical notes and some caramel. Taste is Caramel, bready, bittersweet, citrus, some grass and some tropical fruit. Nice carbonation with medium to low body and good bitter aftertaste. Very good one.
