3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Whole Foods. Pours dark copper with soapy two finger white head. Grapefruit, tangerine, nuts, caramel. Extremely bitter and mild/moderate sweetness. As is often the case with these single hop beers, hop bitterness hits in the mid/back palate. Full, crisp body. Pretty good, but one glass was enough.
Bottle - Clear golden colour, medium, stable white head. Serious hoppy nose with citrussy and tropical notes, lots of grapes and orange peel. Taste of grainy and biscuity malt, tropical fruits, peach, mango, grapes, gooseberry, tangerine, raisins with some flowery tone. Medium body and carbonation, long bitter finish. Excellent IIPA, i like very much. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2014

Fruity hop aroma, grassy, grapes, citrus, pine apples, hay, biscuits, raisins, some passion fruit. Hoppy floral floral, caramel, biscuits, floral, bready notes. Nice beer but a bit unclean. __Rb81 (789) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2014

A golden beer with nice white head. Aroma of caramel and bread. Not too much aroma of Nelson Sauvin or yeast. 10% is well hidden, but for me a single hop beer needs to showcase the hop. It was barely noticeable. Too sweet, not enough bitterness and not a real hoppy aroma. dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Liked this one ok; not my favorite of the single hops. Lots of citrus in the nose, but the bitterness seemed a little out of balance. It was there, just didn’t seem quite right. I will commend this for being very drinkable given the 10% abv. Lore (2746) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 20, 2013
dark golden colour, some yellowish head; aroma and taste of pine resin minimal fruitiness and tons of hops and of course, BITTERNESS - great beer Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 1, 2013
On tap at Csakajósör, Budapest. Clear, deep golden colored beer with hard, rocky, white head. Honey and flower odor. Fruity, floral, aroma with dried plum and honey. Some pine, resin and grass appears later. Very intensive aroma. A bitterness hide alcohol well. Dry, medium bitter taste. Creamy texture, full body, soft carbonation. Intensive and complex beer. Very fruity, honey and malty too. Well balanced. Cristobal37 (1143) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 29, 2013
Like a thick hoppy paste at times, but really tasty. This hop variety is really pronounced but in the end works really well to mask the high alcohol level. Impressive.
