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.

Botella. Presencia limpia y color dorado y gran espuma blanca densa. Aroma citrico. Sabor fino muy al estilo ingles pero con buenas trazas dulces y final resinoso.

Navers (21) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle from Maryhill Tesco Express Glasgow. Beer served in 8C, Teku Glass. After few times with this beer (and a thought that this is solid IPA) I was shocked at first, after opening the bottle. Strong iron smell, like in some cheap euro-lager. Taste is also really metallic, somehow refreshing, but spoiled because of this metallic nails aftertaste. Not sure what happen to this beer (incorrect storage in the shop?), it feels like a shadow of old himself, or like a different beer.

Alebarasi (74) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - MAR 19, 2017
Light yellow color with a light green note, small hop particles and medium white head, which quickly dissolves. Medium body, medium carbonation, no lacing. Grassy and earthy aroma of citruses (especially grapefruit, pomelo and lemon) and their zest, pine, malts, hay, hops, resins, passion fruit, apricot, some mango and lychee. Hoppy and floral taste of bitter citruses, juniper and herbs. Slick mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste. Easy to drink one. Top quality brew for me.

AleRider78 (942) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
Pours a very thick creamy head with dirty patchy lacing and has semi cloudy golden appearance. Aromas of malts and floral hops. Flavours are bitter citrus hops, oranges and lemon. Nice bitterness. Smooth drying mouthfeel with a slight prickly tingling sensation. Really easy drinking ipa.
