I really like this beer. It has a definitive taste, unlike many beers that I have sampled. Definite floral tones. Pours orange with a persistent white and foamy head.

Kita (1946) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 2, 2013
Draft, pint. Clear pale amber color with small creamy white head, good lacing and normal sparkling appearance. Aroma of moderate citrus and pine with light floral notes and light caramel maltiness. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt, following is fresh citric, while finish is astringent, spicy and piney bitter with long hoppy aftertaste. Full body, creamy texture and lively carbonation in palate. Great IPA enjoyed in a typical sports pub in Miami...

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2016 Excellent beer! Bitter, clean, crisp, uncomplicated. And to top it off, very reasonably priced.

Nice strong IPA. Does the trick effectively for the 195 calories. A fantastic bitter finish makes for a very enjoyable drink. No abundance of carbonation like some which means I can drink it faster. Love this bitter!

Reminds me of a beer crafted by Bells Brewery from Michigan, a magical brew called Two-Hearted Ale. This is about the closest I have found in the PNW!

Chopper925 (470) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
Bottle. Clear deep red-golden color, thick foamy head. Piney, resinous and citrusy hop aroma. Dry, high bitter taste. Crisp, somewhat sweet and very mighty hop flavour. Malty notes at first, making room for a long piney and resinous aftertaste. Nice thick mouthfeel paired with a fresh carbonation.
