pIęknie się prezentuje w szkle. Po za tym daj daje ostro tropikami i białymi owocami, czego mogę wymagać więcej? pIjalność też świetna.

eduardovl (1419) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2017 330ml served in a pint glass. Pours a slightly cloudy orange color forming a medium off white creamy head with good retention and lot of lingering and molasses lacings formed and left in the glass. Nose is very fruity. Strong notes of blueberries and tropical fruits (I love Nelson Sauvin hops!). Quite flowery and bit boozy. Taste follows the nose: blueberries and tropical fruits in upfront, followed by caramel malts and grapefruit. Notes of passion fruit. Reasonable bitterness. Good and persistent. Heavy body. Medium carbonation. Grapefruit, caramel and blueberry in the aftertaste. Great drinkability. Great IIPA.

PabloZab (1481) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 27, 2017
UPDATED: APR 27, 2017 Tap (Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen). Almost clear, golden with delicate white-grey head. Aroma is fresh with power of tropical fruits, intense and nice. Delicate sweet in taste with quite huge resin bitterness, tropical fruits rule in this beer. Full body but really drinkable, fresh and tasty.

BlazerT (1052) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Golden, medium hazy with medium to big, semi-thick head. Moderate head retention and lacing. Moderate aroma of tropical fruits (mainly pineapple and mango) with citrus (oranges) and grapes accents. You can find also some "sweet" sugary and marmalade, almost juicy notes. Taste is medium bitter, pretty well balanced with semi-sweet malty profile. Medium to full body, creamy and thick texture, average carbonation, finish is semi bitter, slightly juicy and quite long. In general very solid IIPA, maybe not outstanding, but quite drinkable and refreshing.
