A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Coś się tu zepsuło. Piwo jasne jak słoma, zapach ledwo wyczuwlany, smak jakiś taki wyblakły, do IPA mu daleko. On tap WEŹŻE KRAFTA.

Villyzzz (364) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours light yellow with medium sized white head. Aroma is spicy with citrus and pine. Taste is citrus and hops. Too much carbonation for my taste.

herrklemann (162) - AUSTRIA - OCT 11, 2016
Pours a hazy straw gold liquid with a frothy white head. Aroma of grass, bread, hay, pine, resin, with citrus notes lingering all over the others, strong lemon zest. Taste starts out medium sweet and turns into a lingering bitterness. Full, creamy body with lively carbonation and a lingering, syrupy bitter finish.
At last, an IPA thats a bit different. With all its grass and hay notes, it reminded me of a bitter, full bodied lager. Nicely balanced with citrus fruits from the hops and a toasty malt body.

Hazy amber beer, creamy white head. Orange peel aroma, some hop. Orange, grapefruit, grassy citrus, hop, lasting bitter aftertaste. Crisp and refreshing but dangerous at the strength.

330ml glass from local Tesco - Aroma: sweet with strong citrus. Appearance is very light golden with a fluffy head which quickly disappeared. Taste: some bitterness but mostly tropical sweetness. A very enjoyable beer, and doesnt get boring.

JPDIPSO (6093) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Quite light in color, nearly straw. Tallish off-white head. Late spring in the country aromas, with blooming weeds, grass and orange blossoms. More beers need to feel like this, soft and velvety. Light sweet start, but an aggressive undertow of bitterness goes well into the finish and linger. A soft grainy sweetness does seem to be present throughout. 11/10
