Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, - JUL 25, 2012
500ml bottle, 3.Mar.2012 Slightly hazy amber body, with small head that rapidly diminishes and leaves patchwork on top and glass. Very pleasant and rich aroma, sea, citrus black elder flowers, buttercup, chervil and wet grass after rain. This impression is mirrored also in taste. Very smooth and well balanced. With grilled stockfish dinner @ Arctandria, Tromsø.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2016 Bottle. Pours hazy orange with small off-white head. Lots of citrusy hops in aroma: grapefruit, orange, with notes of pine and herbs. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter: citrus, grapefruit and spices, leading to bitter finish with light alcohol feel. Medium body, soft carbonation and oily texture. Very good IIPA with lots of citrus in flavour, just a little bit too much alcohol in taste.

ALIBALI (985) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2016
Ein mit Trübstoff gefüllter See der Hopfenglückseligkeit. Man fühlt sich mitten in einen amerikanischen Kieferwald gebeamt. Im Mund dann schlank und bis zum Ende hin gehörig hopfenscharf. Ein Elixier, zitrusbefeuert und lang am Gaumen. Und da liegt am Ende der Hund begraben, zwar lang aber dann doch zu einheitlich citrusbitter. Aus der BIEREREI Berlin. 0,5l Krug für zu viel Taler. 6 an der Zahl.

BenL8 (89) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Hazy/opaque light copper colour, little head, some foam remains for a long time though. Aroma is spicy and malty, with only hints of fruitiness. Hops is prominent anyway, aroma is very earthy and herbal. Flavour: Citrus fruitiness is apparent at first. Very spicy and piney, earthiness/ herbal notes still very apparent. Bitter and tangy, especially in the finish. Very very nice double IPA.

Barwa pomarańczowa, lekko w kierunku czerwonego, lekko mętne, piana biała, szybko opadła. W aromacie baaardzo słodko. Głównie landrynki i amerykańskie chmiele. Wysycenie średnie, wporzo. W smaku początkowo czuć lekką słodowość, po czym piwo pokazuje pełnię swoich możliwości. Bardzo mocna gorycz, cytrusy i znowu gorycz. Jest wrażenie jakby momentami gorycz była lekko alkoholowa. Ogólnie piwo, nie licząc potężnej goryczki, zrobiło na mnie średnie wrażenie.

Golden appearance with some head. Tastes of raisin, sweet heavy malts. Medium body, low carbonation and a finish of sweet raisin. Good beer, okay DIPA

spechtacular (86) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 13, 2016
Barwa pomarańczowa, piana niska, szybko zanikająca, piwo lekko opalizujące. Bardzo intensywny i skoncentrowany aromat owoców tropikalnych, grejpdrutów, mango oraz cytrusów. Obecne również nieco słodów. W smaku uderza najpierw słodycz owoców tropikalnych, wysoka goryczka, alkohol dobrze ukryty.

Dusty musky aroma. Fresh hop cone. Much malt wow maybe. Some spices. Fine. Delicate.

JPDIPSO (5796) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Lightly hazed amber color with a tall light beige head. Aromas of fresh oats, pale malt and thistle blossoms; some citric scents in the background. Dry and sharp are my first thought after the first quaff. Nice caramel sweetness underlying everything. Sharp citrus/acidity really grabs ones attention. Feel is interesting in that it has some heft, but the carbonation really keeps it light on the tongue. Light burn building in the back of the throat starts to reveal its strength. Some traditional IPA qualities, with an IIPA attitude. 1/11

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2016 Intensywny pomarańczowy aromat, trochę landrynkowy. Piwo mętne, ciemnozłote. W smaku też bardzo cytrusowo. Intensywna pomarańcza. Silna goryczka ale jak na DIPA jest ok. Na minus zdecydowanie alkoholowosc. Powinna być lepiej ukryta.
