Varies from batch to batch. Medium- hoppy floral and fruity aroma, some alcohol, moderate bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bit oily. Not really an IIPA .

Vucko Pub, Sarajevo. Bottle, and I was given a Pilsner glass to pour it in to, a first for me. This bottle (best by 12/31/17) says 8.5% and 220 IBU, and 19.5% extract. Thick foam on a quite dark brown orange, with some opacity. Sweet, fruity English yeast flavors on nose. Rather bitter first impression, earthy and lightly spicy hop character, and more fruity yeast flavors buried under. Carb is off, as are most beers from newer breweries in this region, but it isn’t horrible; just a bit fizzy and off for style. Overall this has some deep orange citrus bittering as well, and the Rich alcohol isn’t offputting, and fills out the mouthfeel well. Really not bad.

heavy (2911) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 5, 2016
Aug. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle from Mostar beerfest a month earlier, saved it a couple of weeks per brewer’s advice. It poured a hazy copper body with small head. Aroma was earthy, caramel and dusty with just a little bit of citrus hops. Flavor was bitter, admittedly not that much for 110 IBU, although not in typical manner for the style, rather peppery or earthy with yeast damping it, quite much of it, which was its major flaw. Grainy caramel malt counterpart was fine, making up also most of its medium body. Finish was long, quite dry, earthy to herbal, with alcohol warming pretty much. Unconventional, but a decent brew. Problem free, at least my bottle.

Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of Marko, shared with him and kajser27. Darker amber coloured, minimal off-white head that went away rapidly, dry earthy nose with notes of alcohol. Sweetish malty, earthy, caramel, fruits, light hops, odd berries like notes, peach and sharp alcohol in the finish.

Hazy, amber-deep golden colored, small non lasting off white head. Aroma is of some malt and caramel, fruity melon and citrus, moderate aroma. Taste is medium sweet malt, caramel, biscuit, medium- hoppy floral and fruity aroma, some alcohol, moderate bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bit oily. Not really an IIPA, but drinkable.

Marko (6375) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 23, 2016
Thanks Reno! Shared with ogivlado and kajser. Misty dark amber, off white head, small. Earthy aroma, mixing with quite intensive peach. citric touch. Taste, sweetish, citric, some lime, soft, remarkably enough, the supposed 110 IBUS are not in evidence. Caramel, just vague peach. Mild earthy bitterness really. Not 100% sure if it carbonated properly, so definitely to be rerated. Ah, I’m used to better from Zis. I’m sure it will be better next time.
