BlazerT (1251) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle. Tulip. Golden, little hazy with big, white, semi-densed head. Medicore lacing and good head retention. Fruity and yesty aroma, little peachy. Taste is light to medium bitter pretty well balanced by malty (biscuity) sweetness. In overall highly drinkable, but still an average IPA>

JohnCook101 (535) - - AUG 6, 2015
Hazy light copper, large slightly off-white head which holds back the aroma a little, but hints of citrus and yeast. Flavour is quite boozy, some citrus, slightly floral, pine, a little malt. Moderate bitter finish. Decent.

rafael52 (1629) - Łódź, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Barwa: ciemno złota, lekko mętna, opalizująca.
Piana: bardzo obfita, kremowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, szybko się dziurawi i opada oblepiając szkło.
Zapach: średnio intensywny, na pierwszym planie aromaty chmielowe, trochę owoców z akcentami kwiatowymi i ziołowymi, w tle nuty słodowe i drożdżowe.
Smak: dość wytrawne, głównie nuty słodowe z kontrą goryczkową na średnim poziomie w kierunku niskiego, wyczuwalne są również posmaki drożdży.
Wysycenie: średnie, piwo wychodziło po otwarciu.

yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle, at Cardinal. An unclear, orange-colored beer topped by a finger-thick off-white to beige head leaving lacings. Fruity aroma with some yeast. Pale malts, pine cones and grass too. It has a nice bitterness in the flavor, with pale malts in the back. Fruityness and pine cones. It’s semi-dry on the palate with a decent carbonation. Lasting bitter finish with tropical fruits. Well, it’s a decent one, nothing more. 140726

3.5

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Dark golden colour, thick head. Not much aroma to it, complex range of flavours. Enjoyable but also a little bit of a muddle.
