Tapped at Hostinec Richtar Jakub in Bratislava/Slovakia. Aroma of red currant wine, malt, fruits, hops. Color is dark copper, amber, red. Head thick, soapy, stable. Taste is awesome! A balance of malt, sour fruits, bitter hops, very dry. Dry in finish plus bitter fuits. Overall a fantastic beer! AdamChandler (5081) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 7, 2015

330ml Flasche. Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes orangegoldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig, fruchtig, hopfig. Geschmack malzig fruchtig, bitter hopfig, Karamell, minimal würzig. MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2014
Backlog. Tried as "Lente hop". Bought from Systembolaget during a temporary release. OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2013
750ml served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
A - 3 fingers of billowing foam that looks like an ice cream float. The head just sits and sits finally forming a sudsy cap. Loads of 1/4 " thick lacing.
S - Bright hop aromas, lemon and mandarin citrus, melon, apples, floral, hints of lavender, fresh bread,
T - Sweet malt upfront followed by citrus pith, grassy bittering hops, melon and lots of tropical fruit come through and compliment the sweet malt. A green grassy bitterness rides through mixing with a semi-powdery dryness on the finish.
M - Medium body, medium carbonation, oily center, semi dry finish.
I was expecting more of a Belgian IPA but this falls in the American category. Sweet malt but not too sweet. Lots of hop flavor and aroma with a decent amount of bitterness. Citrus really starts taking over as it warms. A solid IPA.
