On tap at Zagreb Craft Beer Week. Hazy golden, huge white head. Marmalade, apricot, ripe fruit, not too heavy caramel, quite sweet. Very smooth. Juicy, low bitterness. Medium+ bodied. Interesting one. Trolleo (1899) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 17, 2018
Alcohol, marzipan and wood aroma, like it was barrel aged or something. Cloudy orange color with small sized white head. Alcohol, wood, fruit and caramel taste, bittersweet, lots of marmelade, pretty complex. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Warming alcohol sensation. Weird, complex, definitely different, but not the best. //tap at Craft at Craft Marko (6381) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 31, 2017
Tap at Craft Room. Hazy amber body, tiny white head. Huge orange aroma, hoppy, ending a bit dry. Creamy orange candy taste,s weetish and perfumey even, quite nice, ending with a herbal bitter hoppy note. Alcohol is present, of course, warming, but, though strong, it didn't phase me. Basically, this is clementine liqueur in beer form. And I dug it a lot. hrabren (2044) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 27, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 On tap at Craft Room, Opatovina, Zagreb. Murky dark golden, small off-white head. Moderately hoppy, very spicy. Alcohol present in the nose, but hidden in flavour. Full body. ZodiacM (1370) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2017
LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Mooie bittere en fruitige triple IPA, vrij troebel met de nodige vlokken erin, maar prima van smaak

Bottle from Drunk Dry, Kidlington, Oxon, consumed at home Friday 13th January 2017 whilst cooking Lilli chatni anna murghi kari (but with lamb instead) Pours reddy/amber, hazy. There is a large foamy white/off-white head, cheesey hop nose. Big warmth from the alcohol but far from harsh. Almost like a Barley Wine/TIPA combo’. After a while you start to pick up on everything this beer has to offer, I say after a while as I am just loving this whilst cooking away. I just love swishing this around my mouth, it’s bittersweet, warming, lovely beer, Loz loves it, I love it. On reflection I haven’t really said much about this beer other than its lovely, but sometimes that’s enough. Mmhh....

Bottle at home, bottled June ’16 Batch 0320, my Juan hyndredth WB rake ... 3rd person to hit this goal after Mad Mitch and Rich the Villain, 03/12/16.
Rich clouded amber with a well appointed cream cap that stays for the show.
Nose carries Sorachi notes, caramel, sweet malts, pine, orange peel, sticky tropical punch.
Taste comprises an alcoholic kick, caramel malt, orange peel, mineral notes, dusty hops, Sorachi eveident but not overpowering.
Medium + body, well pitched masaging carbonation to drive this high boost number home, well integrated hop bitterness with a warming alcohol finale.
Decent for the ABV, Sorachi isn’t OTT and comes together well.
