Maakun (6936) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2018
Bottle at home. Slight hazy dark golden with fluffy off white head. Lychee, dank hops, caramel, quite malty with a touch of cardboard, orange blossom, aromatic hops in a fruity and herbal way, but not very typical juice notes. Medium sweet, bitter and bodied with quite some malty feel. OK.

jmgreenuk (10514) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 4, 2018
Tap at Neked Csak Dezso, Budapest. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, dry yeast, big tropical fruit hop. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth dry, fruity nettle hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.

Trolleo (1899) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 31, 2017
Fruity aroma, wet mushrooms and melon. Cloudy yellow to amber color with medium sized white head. Lots of citrus, nice resin, some caramel, pleasant amount of bitterness. Thin to medium body, bit overcarbonated.

Marko (6381) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 14, 2017
Thanks Zvone! Murky orange body, scant white head. Creamy grainy and hoppy (tropical fruit / tangerine) aroma. Tropical notes in the taste too, mixing with a grainy note again, more tangerine. Again, very much smooth and juicy. Clean, tasty, no bitterness, a by the book, not world-class, "just" very good NE IPA.

3.5
ZodiacM (1370) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2017
LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Een IPA uit Hongarije. En een redelijk geslaagde IPA: hoppi, bitter, fruitig, mooi troebel. De kleur is donkerder dan ik gewend ben, lekker!

Maarten1993 (1420) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2017
Drank 19-11 while writing in Hunyadi. Very nice for this ABV! Full taste, fresh, like it, good.

3.6
tricksta_p (5456) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2017
From tap at Hopaholic, Budapest. Aroma is juicy and fruity with soft grapefruit, orange, and some mango. Flavour is mild sweet and softly bitter. Body is medium. A pretty decent variety of NE IPA, has the hazy look and the juicy aroma, lacks a little oomph to put it over the edge. Nice.

3.3
Mpuntmuts (371) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2017 Cloudy orange pour with thin white lacing. Aroma is earthy, piny, fruity, hoppy. Taste pretty much the same as the nose with a mild bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Nice refreshing IPA. I love my bitter beers!!!

3.6
Iznogud (4991) - CROATIA - OCT 30, 2017
Bottle, 330 ml courtesy of and shared with IHC. Pours hazy yellow, lasting white head. Bit subdued fruity aroma. Fruity, melon, light bitterness. Some yeasty sediment in the end. Medium bodied.

Alebarasi (186) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - OCT 27, 2017
Hazy orange color with a small white head and pinky-high yeast sediment. Fizzy carbonation, medium body, no lacing. Floral and fruity aroma of tropical fruits, grapefruit, mandarin oranges, mango, pine, resins, spices and apples. Fruity and earthy taste of citruses, pine, pine needles, resins, hops, yeast, honey, herbs, light caramel and passion fruit. Lightly bitter and an easy-to-drink brew. Nice!
