3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Muddy orange color out of the bottle with a sticky off white head. Solid aged grapefruit and orange peel nose. Lots of alcohol in here with candied grapefruit rind, some musty earth and pine. Long sharp dry citrus and alcohol burn in the finish. There is an oxidized patina on this beer I rather like. Reminds me of an original, old school IIPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip. AB 10%
Pours a very dark orange coloured beer, just a bit hazy, with a slighty off-white tall head, thick, with good retention. Light lcing left on the glass.
Nice hoppy aroma, very refreshng, with citus notes, grapefruit, resin.
NIce taste too, hoppy, with grass hops, citrus, grapefruit, light tropical fruits, light pine and resin, quite bitter with the bitterness lasting for quite long. Alcohol well hidden, it doesn’t feel at all like a 10% beer. Medium body, good carbonation, nice dryness on the palate.
Overall a very good IPA, another fine example from Praght.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from ABCBeers. Poured amber, with a tan, lacing, creamy foam. Delicious nose of lime, citrus peel, pine resin, fruits like apple, grapes, grapefruit, and honey. Aroma of honey, lime, bread, somewhat earthy. Dense, oily, plenty of carbo. Lasting sweet, caramelish finish which leads to dry, bitter aftertaste. I’d leave the sugar out, but other than that excellent!
